Don’t Look For Me by Wendy Walker
Publication Date: September 15th 2020
They said she walked away. But what really happened to Molly Clarke?
From the bestselling author of All Is Not Forgotten comes a compelling and emotionally powerful story of a daughter’s desperate search to find her mother before it’s too late.
They called it a “walk away.” The car abandoned miles from home. The note found at a nearby hotel. The shattered family. It happens all the time. Women disappear, desperate to start over. But what really happened to Molly Clarke?
The night Molly disappeared began with a storm, running out of gas, and a man offering her a ride to safety. But when the doors lock shut, Molly begins to suspect she has made a terrible mistake.
A new lead brings Molly’s daughter, Nicole, back to the small, desolate town where her mother was last seen to renew the desperate search. The locals are sympathetic and eager to help. The innkeeper. The bartender. Even the police. Until secrets begin to reveal themselves and Nicole comes closer to the truth about that night―and the danger surrounding her.
This is my second book by Wendy Walker and I am really loving her books. Don’t Look For Me is such a different thriller for me. I mean I’ve read a fair share of thrillers but this one was truly unique, original and kept me guessing every second of the way. I didn’t know where this book was going and I LOVED it! I loved everything about this book, the story, characters, setting, plot. I was captivated. It had a great pace and I loved how it went back and forth between Molly and Nichole (Nic), our two main characters who are also mother and daughter. If you go in blind, with an open mind and if you like thrillers, I think you’d like this book. It’s different and twisty and a great read for the spooky season! If you are looking for a book that keeps you on your toes and guessing the entire time, this is a great book to pick up.
A must read for any reader of thrillers who is looking for something different and new!!
I received an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review!
