The Missing Wife By: Sam Carrington (Reviewed by Rochelle)


Imagine turning up to your own party, and recognizing no one. Your best friend has just created your worst nightmare.

Louisa is an exhausted, sleep-deprived new mother and, approaching her fortieth birthday, the very last thing she wants to do is celebrate.

But when her best friend Tiff organizes a surprise party, inviting the entire list of Lou’s Facebook friends, she’s faced with a new source of anxiety altogether: a room full of old college classmates who she hasn’t spoken to in twenty years. And one person in particular she never expected to see again is there – her ex-boyfriend from college, the handsome and charismatic Oliver Dunmore.

When Oliver’s wife Melissa goes missing after the party, everyone remembers what happened that night differently. It could be the alcohol, but it seems more than one person has something to hide.

Louisa is determined to find the truth about what happened to Melissa. But just how far does she need to look…?

One simple Facebook invitation unfolds into something both tragic and monstrous; a story of obsessive love, breath-taking deception and masterful manipulation.

My Thoughts:

Hello my book followers, It June.  WOW six months into the year, where did it go.

A kind thank you to NetGalley and the Publisher for an advanced copy for an honest review.

This book is due out June 27, 2019 I highly recommend it.  It was an awesome read, I could not put it down it had be from the beginning to the end.  I felt the author did a wonderfully eerie job at bringing these people to life. I would really like how she made the character out to be good and then I would really hate them. Everyone was a suspect here.  I love how the plot was written and how it all came together.

This book had twist and twist and kept me wanting more. I am now on the lookout for her other novels:

I am giving this book five stars.
