Happy Tuesday friends! We are halfway through the month and I don’t know about y’all, but I am apparently so ready to be done with 2020 that I have mindlessly started dating 2021 on some work documents (*inserts face palm emoji, lol).
Anyway, I wanted to stop by and wish Don’t Look For Me by Wendy Walker HAPPY PUB DAY! I am slowly playing catch up with all my arcs and piles of books at home, but YOU GUYS…. seriously- go get this book (or read the synopsis and review and decide, lol). I will keep it short and sweet, because I want y’all to run to the bookstore!
“In Wendy Walker’s thrilling novel Don’t Look for Me, the greatest risk isn’t running away. It’s running out of time.
One night, Molly Clarke walked away from her life.
She doesn’t want to be found. Or at least, that’s the story.
The car abandoned miles from home. The note found at a nearby hotel.
The shattered family that couldn’t be put back together.
They called it a “walk away.”It happens all the time.
Women disappear, desperate to leave their lives behind and start over. But is that what really happened to Molly Clarke?
Completely racked with guilt from an accident that killed Annie, her nine year old daughter, Molly feels estranged and alienated from her family. One night while she was on the road, Molly notices a storm is near and is practically out of gas (YIKES!). What happens next is a crazy roller-coaster ride when the police find Molly’s car abandoned.
Told from both the perspectives of Molly and her oldest daughter Nic, Don’t Look For Me is paced extremely well. You are hooked from the first page watching Molly try to live with the guilt of the death of Annie to the very last page. There are a few creep factors and twisty turn of events, so buckle up, buttercups! I generally have to be in a mood for thrillers and even then, there are not many that resonate with me afterward; however, Wendy Walker did such an amazing job with keeping my attention. This book had me so captivated and in awe. It is riveting, well-crafted, and overall jaw-dropping.
Thank you to Wendy Walker, St. Martin’s Press, and Netgalley, who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! It was such a crazy ride, but one that I cannot wait for everyone to read! SO now that you all have read my review, read the book and come back with your thoughts (or if you have read it, what did you think of it?)!
