    What a great mystery/thriller!

    What a great mystery/thriller! The Missing Wife is a story of lies, double-dealing, buried secrets and deception. The story was put together well with convincing dialogue and a captivating mystery. I enjoyed this book and will recommend it to friends. My thanks to Netgalley, the publisher and the author for an advance copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    An intriguing story with an unexpected ending.

    My Rating: 4.5 Stars Louisa's biggest problem at the moment is trying to get enough sleep while dealing with a new baby. However, her fortieth birthday is approaching and her husband and best friend Tiff plan a huge surprise party. Louisa doesn't have any other close friends other than Tiff and is appalled when she arrives at the party only to discover that Tiff has invited everyone on Louisa's Facebook list of friends. One shocking guest is Oliver, Louisa's first love. Not only did their relationship end very badly over twenty years earlier, Oliver's wife Melissa goes missing at the party. Louisa had far too much to drink the night of the party and cannot remember anything about Melissa. However, Oliver shows up at her door begging for her help. This is incredibly difficult for Louisa, and that is for several reasons. Yet, she reluctantly decides to help him. As the weeks roll on, Louisa is plagued with fractured memories. This is something she dealt with her entire life. This is multi-layered story dealing with these emotional issues of Louisa go beyond being a harried mother. Furthermore, there are things about Oliver, and their shared past, that trouble her deeply and this leads to nerve-wracking moments for Louisa. Finding Melissa is not easy for Oliver, nor is it easy for the police. Other than Emily, Louisa's teen daughter, the only character I could trust in this story was Brian, Louisa's husband. This story most definitely has several twists and turns. What is more is that the conclusion is something that I never saw coming. All while reading the story I was equally worried and frustrated for Louisa. Conversely, I never trusted Oliver from the moment he walked into Louisa's party. Due to a conclusion that seemed a bit off, the rating on this book is a bit lower for a story that genuinely kept me quite interested. I was sold on looking for Melissa so I did find this to be a good book by Sam Carrington. I do look forward to reading more from her in the future. Many thanks to Avon and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

    An edge of your seat figure with a twist.

    Don’t even trust your own best friend with your Facebook password or you could end up being the subject of a surprise party where all the people on your friends list, some that you have not even seen in 20 years, and some that you don’t even really know, have been invited!! Her husband Brian and best friend Tiff mean well, but Louisa who is suffering from exhaustion, due to the unexpected arrival of her second child Noah, and raising her teenage daughter Emily, is struggling to put one foot in front of the other, and the last thing she wants is to celebrate turning 40! Add to this, seeing her ex-boyfriend Oliver from college who she thought at the time was the love of her life, turn up with his wife Melissa, what is she to do to get through the night? Drink of course!! But then Melissa disappears after the party and Louisa who was quite intoxicated and has no recollection of the night, starts to have visions of a woman bloodied and dead. Is this Melissa…? and as she is having these visions does that mean Louisa could be responsible? Oliver as Melissa’s husband, becomes the prime suspect and to try and clear his name, enlists the help of Louisa who is reluctant to spend time with him, and it isn’t long before Oliver weasels his way back into Louisa’s life and that of her family and best friend. But on top of the visions, it is clear as the story progresses that Louisa is also suffering from post natal depression. She is becoming forgetful and isn’t coping with looking after Noah much to the concern of Brian, Emily, Tiff and now Oliver! As her family try and help her, Oliver starts to drop these little bombs from their past to an event that Louisa must face which in turn could solve the mystery of Melissa’s disappearance. But what will this uncover and will it push Louisa already fragile over the edge, or is Oliver not as innocent in this as he claims to be? This is a real page tuner that kept me reading well into the night. A who done it with all the right ingrediants to make a psychological thriller great! Thank-you to Netgalley, Avon Books UK and Sam Carrington for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Missing Wife in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and are not biased in anyway.

    2 stars

    I only finished this book two days ago and I already forgot everything about it, After a quick memory jog, I am good to go. I really enjoyed the beginning. It was ominous not knowing what was truly going on. Why was the main character missing some of here memory? What is going on? However, it took so long to get to the heart of the book ,that I lost interest half way through and blacked out the rest of my time reading this book. This book needed to be 100 pages shorter. Too much repetitions of the same details and sluggish pacing.

    Really enjoyed!

    What a great mystery! Lots of twists and turns and red herrings with a totally unreliable narrator. But that unreliability is at the core of this mystery. Well crafted with believable dialogue and a compelling mystery. I could not put this down and now cannot wait to read this writers next book! I predict this will be this summers favorite beach read. Thank you NetGalley for the advanced readers copy for review.
