Release Day! Woman Last Seen by Adele Parks ~ My Thoughts #WomanLastSeen

Happy Release Day!

Congrats Adele
on the release today of
Woman Last Seen!

Woman Last Seen by Adele Parks
Mystery Thriller, 400 pages
Published February 1, 2022 by MIRA

#1 Sunday Times bestselling author Adele Parks returns with her most provocative, compelling book to date.

Leigh Fletcher: happily married stepmom to two gorgeous boys goes missing on Monday. Her husband, Mark, says he knows nothing of her whereabouts. She went to work and just never came home. Their family is shattered.

Kai Janssen: married to wealthy Dutch businessman Daan and vanishes the same week. Kai left their luxurious penthouse and glamorous world without a backward glance. She seemingly evaporated into thin air. Daan is distraught.

Detective Clements knows that people disappear all the time—far too frequently. Most run away from things, some run toward and others are taken but find their way back. A sad few never return. These two women are from very different worlds. Their disappearances are unlikely to be connected. And yet, at a gut level, the detective believes they might be.

How could these women walk away from their families, husbands and homes willingly? Clements is determined to unearth the truth, no matter how shocking and devastating it may be.

My thoughts about Woman Last Seen ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First lines—"Tuesday 17th March: I am engulfed in emptiness. I am not in my bed. In the instant my eyes flutter open I know there is something wrong. Seriously wrong."

Whew! What a beginning. It totally did what the author intended. It sucked me in and made me want more. 

I can't say a whole lot because I don't want to give away the twists to the story but rest assured, when you start this one, you are not going to want to stop. So messed up. And brilliant!

You will definitely want to add Woman Last Seen to your reading list. It's probably going to be ranked up there as one of my favorite (i.e. mind-blown) thrillers of all time. 

I received a copy of Woman Last Seen via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.
