You think you know those closest to you. You are wrong…
A sleep-deprived new mother approaching her fortieth birthday, the very last thing Louisa wants to do is celebrate.
But when her friend Tiff organises a surprise party, inviting the entire list of Louisa’s Facebook friends, Louisa is faced with a room full of people she hasn’t spoken to in years – including someone she never expected to see again: her ex-boyfriend, Oliver Dunmore.
When Oliver’s wife Melissa goes missing after the party, everyone remembers the night differently. Someone knows what happened to Melissa, and Louisa is determined to find them. But the truth could be closer, and the deception more devastating, than she’d ever imagined…
A gripping psychological suspense novel, perfect for fans of My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing, The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena, The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn, and The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen.

The Missing Wife
Everything so far fetched and nothing made sense.
Worst Book Ever
I have never actually taken the time to write a review before but feel it’s my duty to warn you that this is literally the worst book I’ve ever read. I kept waiting for it to get better and it never did. It made no sense at all and I finally skimmed the last 100 pages or so because I couldn’t stand another second of reading Louisa wondering why Oliver had come back or how she forgot to feed her baby but swore she had. Save your $.99 and move on. Quickly.
