  • Most suspenseful book I've read

    You know those books that are so thrilling, so suspenseful you can’t put them down, can’t wait to find out how it all ends, but at the same time your heart is racing so fast that you have to stop every once in a while and just breathe, step away for a minute? Well, author Wendy Walker could teach a class on that, because Don’t Look for Me is one of the most exciting books I’ve ever read. Stressful, nail biting suspense start to finish. But what a great story. Don’t Look for Me is written from two vastly different points of view: Mom Molly, who caused the accident that killed her youngest daughter five years ago, and Daughter Nicole, who was babysitting little Annie that horrible, devastating day. She blames Molly and hates her, won’t forgive her. But when Molly disappears and a note saying “don’t look for me” is found Nicole isn’t quite so sure anymore. She might not want anything to do with her mother, but she wants to know what happened, that she really did decide to walk away, that she’s safe. A new clue surfaces, a clue that Nicole’s father John and the police seem to ignore. But Nicole can’t ignore it. She is determined to find out what’s true, find Molly if she is out there to be found, or learn the worst if that’s what really happened. She doesn’t know who to turn to, who to confide in, so she talks to some people and keeps secrets from others. But has she chosen the right people? And as if the suspense isn’t already almost unbearable, as the POVs change, so do the number of days, counting up or down, depending on the perspective. When will this end? How will it end? There are so many aspects to this story: the heartbreak, the cruelty, the unrelenting sadness of losing a child, the accusations, the guilt, the inability to forgive. In her desperation, stranded in the storm, Molly did have a moment of wanting to just walk away. But then the man and the child showed up and offered her a ride. Perhaps if Molly was not already so numb she would have seen the evil and felt the fear right away. But she’s been numb for five years now, and evil isn’t straightforward, it twists and turns and has secret identities. It doesn’t behave in any normal way, no way that you can figure out and anticipate. Neither is aware of what the other is doing, but both Molly and Nicole are working desperately to figure this out, to take action before it’s too late. As the days pass by and their stories switch back and forth parts start to merge, more and more similarities and discrepancies and clues are discovered. Near the end of the book I thought I had it figured out several times, but I didn’t want to be right, because that option was so unbelievably horrible. Then another horrible possibility would come to mind. Thanks to author Wendy Walker and St. Martin’s Press for providing an advance copy of Don’t Look for Me via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This was one creepy story, but totally satisfying. I recommend it without hesitation.

  • Excellent thriller

    Wow, a lot of grief, heartache and terror throughout this whole story, and the bad stuff just keeps on keeping on. An enjoyable psychological experience, with many different victims, because all the twisted roads were made by each person’s personal pain, other than the true evil at the center. Edge of your seat read. Add this to your TBR list.

  • Chilling, menacing, and incredibly riveting!

    Don’t Look for Me is a character-driven, thrill ride that takes you to Hastings, Connecticut and into the lives of Molly Clarke, a mother consumed with grief who ran out of gas two weeks ago and has yet to be been seen from again, and her twenty-one-year-old daughter Nicole, who after receiving what seems to be a viable tip decides to investigate and search for her missing mother herself. The writing is complex and taut. The characterization is spot on with a cast of characters that are raw, distressed, and consumed. And the plot told from dual perspectives and using a back-and-forth style ratchets up the tension and suspense as it quickly unravels into an eerie tale of familial drama, obsession, kidnapping, desperation, guilt, tragedy, violence, murder, and the messy, complex bonds that exist between family members. Overall, Don’t Look for Me is a without a doubt a masterfully plotted, clever, twisty page-turner that keeps you on the edge of your seat from the very first page and ultimately leaves you surprised, shocked, and thoroughly entertained.

  • Couldn't put it down!

    Don't look for me by Wendy Walker is one of those books that you think you have read before...but it's not. Another new author for me, I picked it up and couldn't put it down. It was a fast paced, page turning, I have to know what is going on book that you think you have the answers, but then leaves you thinking what? It's also a quick read, so it doesn't give you much time before switching gears! One night, Molly walked away from her life. After a family tragedy, she can't seem to find herself; her husband appears to be having an affair, her son is at school, and ignores her, and her daughter hates her. So she disappears; she doesn't want to be found. Her car is abandoned, and a note is found at a nearby hotel. They called it a “walk away.” Or at least, that's the story. But is that what really happened to Molly? The book is told from two different view points: Molly's and Nicole's, her daughter, who can't believe her mother would just walk away. This just isn't an excellent mystery/thriller, it's also about family relationships; what happens when tragedy strikes and how the family can either pull together, or pull apart...if you have kids....hug them and tell them you love them.

  • A 4.5 star thriller!

    I’ve been on a bit of run lately reading thrillers. For some reason I’ve increased my reads in this genre since the pandemic began. I can’t really figure this out given that I’m already feeling stressed and a good thriller puts me into tachycardia. Having just finished Don’t Look for Me, I’m certain my heart rate won’t be decreasing any time soon. There are so many things happening in this book. Molly Clarke is a woman trying to survive after the death of her youngest daughter five years ago. This tragedy is compounded by the fact that Molly ran over her in a horrible accident. The guilt she lives with is beyond imagination and her life has never been the same since that time. Sadly, her relationships with the rest of the family are severely strained as they blame her for this inevitable accident. Her husband doesn’t speak to her, and her daughter Nic has been kicked out of school. Molly makes the effort every two weeks to watch her son play football - something he doesn’t understand given it’s a three hour drive each way. It’s during one of those trips that Molly runs out of gas in the midst of a hurricane on her way home. She is given a ride by a man and his daughter who happened to be driving by. But Molly doesn’t return home after the hurricane. Is she fleeing the family who no longer love and respect her or has something more nefarious happened to Molly? Told from a two perspective (Molly and Nic), dual time frame, the true events of what happened to Molly slowly unfold. This psychological thriller is well crafted, and delivers the chilling impact that only great authors provide. It is well organized, meticulously presented and highly engaging. The story is memorable and the conclusion satisfying. I will be reading more from this author. Thanks to Netgalley and St Martin’s Press for the ARC of this book in exchange for the honest review provided here.
