Blonde. Beautiful. A loving mother.
And missing since Monday.
On a sunny morning in late September, Shannon Blaine sets off for a jog along the rural roads near her home in Lake George, New York. It’s her usual a.m. routine, her “me time” after dropping the kids off at school…except on this day she never returns.
Is her husband lying when he says he has no clue where she is? Could Shannon have split on her own, overwhelmed by the pressures of her life? Or is she the victim of a sexual predator who had been prowling the area and snatched her before she knew what was happening.
True crime writer Bailey Weggins, on assignment for the website Crime Beat, heads north from New York City to report on the mysterious disappearance. An anonymous tip soon leads Bailey to a grisly, bone-chilling discovery. Every town has its secrets, Bailey reminds herself, and nothing is ever as perfect as it seems. She keeps digging for answers until—when it’s almost too late—she unearths the terrifying truth.
An ok thriller.
Such A Perfect Wife
# 1, Again with this Author/Publisher, I had to count the number of pages in the Hardback version to try and determine whether or not the Audiobook was Abridged or Unabridged. It would be SO simple to print clearly under the Title.
But no matter, I am in such need of a “new” author, that I tried yet another Kate White Audiobook.
The title is completely misleading although the brief Preview indicated otherwise.
Such a silly, rambling, Audiobook.
The main character appears to read minds, out think the Sheriff’s Department, NY State Police, veteran reporters, and so many other hollow, uninspiring characters.
As always, I try and give new authors that friends tell me about more than one chance to intrigue me. After three Kate White books, I’m out $60.00 or more, and very disappointed.
Truly, old Nancy Drew books were more inspiring-but this audiobook and writing style were identical in complexity. Plus, there weren’t a couple of nice best friends to dilute the main characters infatuation with herself.
The same was true in the prior two Kate White’s that I’ve read or listened to.
The Narrator was not abrasive but much too “pressured” - possibly trying to convey the ridiculous intensity of the MAIN, and almost only character.
I am pleased now to go and order Karen Cleveland’s new Audiobook, unless I marked my calendar wrong. Will the cover tell me Abridged/Unabridged?Maybe Karen will be my new “go to” author. I liked her last book quite a lot. Pandora53
