The Missing Wife by Sam Carrington

43351584Lou Lou (Louisa) is a new mom to Oliver. She’s sleep-deprived, and not coping at all, so why Tiff – her best friend (really?) – would organize a surprise party by hacking her Facebook account is beyond me. It sounds like my worst nightmare. But that’s just the beginning. Oliver (gorgeous and part of Lou Lou’s chequered past) shows up with his wife. Only she goes missing at the party.

The good is that this is a thrilling page turner. You can’t really stop and think, that would kill the vibe. And I suppose that’s the bad. The ugly is that this is one of those books where everyone is the suspect and then the ending comes completely out of left field. It’s an enjoyable weekend read, if you’re prepared to just go with it, not think too much and suspend your disbelief for an extended period of time. There are also some pacing issues – parts of this speed past, whilst others feel unbearably dragged out.

Not bad, but not wonderful either.

3 stars.
