APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The heroine of this heart-pounding thriller is out to save herself. When Wren Greenwood meets the captivating Adam Harper on a dating app, she’s enchanted—until he disappears. With the help of a little snooping, she discovers that not only has Adam ghosted plenty of women in the past, but many of them have disappeared…permanently. Mystery master Lisa Unger drops an utterly relatable heroine into an all-too-real situation, making for a true pageturner. After whip-smart Wren teams up with a sympathetic private investigator, the action heats up and sparks fly. A dark and brooding thriller with romantic undertones, Last Girl Ghosted is a perfect read for a chilly evening.
Advice columnist Wren Greenwood, the protagonist of this enthralling psychological thriller from Thriller Award finalist Unger (Confessions on the 7:45), meets Adam Harper after she joins the online dating app Torch. Wren and Adam begin an emotional affair that she believes will last, but three months later Adam vanishes, ghosting Wren by deleting all his contact information, including his Torch profile, and disconnecting his cell phone. Wren is further devastated when a private investigator shows up at her Brooklyn townhouse claiming that Adam may be responsible for the disappearance of three women, who, along with all their money, have never been located. The search for Adam forces Wren to confront her turbulent childhood, which included a violent father who insisted his family live off the grid. Readers will root for the appealing, intelligent characters, even when they're not acting in their own best interest. Believable plot twists related to questions of identity and the value of friends who become family further elevate the story. Unger is on a roll.
Last girl ghosted
Pretty good read, enjoyed how it semi points out some of the problems our society has brought to the world.
Very good read
Liked the way character spoke in third person (I think it was) speaking as if to him, the ghost
Bland characters; the overuse of characters and their dreams to propel the story forward always feels like a copout.
