Happy Tuesday bookworms!
And happiest of publication days to this exciting new thriller from Wendy walker!🧡
Twisted and tense. Creepy and claustrophobic. Dark and disturbing. Wendy Walker has written another can’t miss thriller! Molly is alone on a dark road in the middle of a storm when she runs out of gas. Molly has been a shell of her former self ever since the death of her youngest daughter Annie, who died in a car accident. An accident Molly blames herself for. Molly is at wits end so running out of gas in the middle of the storm is the straw that breaks the camel’s back. She gets out of the car starts walking and the next day no one knows where she is. What follows is an addictive, multi layered, complicated story.
The story bounces between the perspectives of Molly and her older daughter Nicole who is looking for her. Both Molly and Nicole are well-developed, sympathetic, and flawed characters. There was a wealth of suspects in the story all of which I was suspicious of at some time or another. The tension in this story was ramped way up, I had that claustrophobic feeling throughout the book. I seriously gasped out loud a couple times while reading this book when the story took a turn I was not anticipating. Therese Plummer expertly narrates the audiobook. She gave each character the perfect voice, I was never confused as to who was narrating the story. Another excellent thriller from Miss Walker.

About the Book
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?
