About The Book
You trusted him with your secret…and then he vanished.
When Wren Greenwood meets a good-looking stranger from a dating app, she expects a casual fling – but they connect immediately. Adam Harper is her perfect match.
She falls for him.
She confides in him.
And then he disappears… his profiles deleted, his phone disconnected, his Manhattan apartment emptied.
First, Wren blames herself. Then she hears about the other girls – girls who fell in love with Adam, and are now missing.
Wren needs answers, but as she follows the breadcrumb trail Adam left behind, it leads back to her own dark past. Suddenly, she’s no longer sure if she’s predator or prey.
She only knows one thing: whatever it takes, she’ll be the last girl he ever ghosts…
Ghosting — when someone cuts off all communication without explanation — extends to all things, it seems. Most of us think about it in the context of digital departure: a friend not responding to a text, or worse, a lover, but it happens across all social circumstances and it’s tied to the way we view the world.
This is a twisted and disturbing story; about family, love and mental health.
Wren, our main character, has started dating again but with not much luck until she mets Adam. He seems the perfect guy for her, charming, in love and with similar tastes to her. But, when 3 months after start dating he disappears, Wren doesn’t know what to think. Has she been ghosted or something has happened to Adam? Of course, when a PI appears at her door asking questions about Adam, Wren doesn’t know what to think and who to trust, so, she will start to search for the answers by herself putting her life at risk.
Wren seems a nice woman, but she has a past that conditions each one of her movements. I am not saying as a fault but a way to understand her and her thoughts; I really don’t think I would trust anyone after her past or act “normal” in any way.
As I said, this is a disturbing read; but a way to make the reader believe that we all have problems and a past and the only way to continue living is to confront our fears and be true to ourselves.
The story is told between two different story lines; the past with Wren childhood and the present how she has accepted her past and tries to be happy.
This is a slow paced story, because some things can’t be rushed and should be told in their own time.
Maybe you’ll love this book, maybe you’ll hate it; but it will make you think about different themes and how they can affect us and how we can help people around us with mental health issues.
