Book Review: "Don't Look for Me" by Wendy Walker
Molly is driving home in the middle of a rainstorm that’s about to turn into a hurricane. She’s driving home but she doesn’t know why—her husband barely looks at her and her daughter hates her.
She doesn’t know how long ago her empty light went on, but she knows the gas station is coming up. Her car stalls out just before that, and the station is closed anyway for the impending storm.
Her car is found abandoned after the storm passes. A day or two later a note is found in her handwriting telling her family not to look for her, that she’s been a burden to them.
Did Molly just walk away from her life and her family? Where is she, and is she okay?
Walker did such a great job here, ratcheting up the tension and suspense. There’s so much going on in this book but it’s best just to go in not knowing too much and let it all unfold.
I’m a big fan of Walker’s books and this is probably one of her best. If you’re looking for a good, slightly creepy thriller, grab this one!
St. Martin's Press provided me with a complimentary advance copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased review. Thanks for making it available!!
