Local Woman Missing: A Novel of Domestic Suspense
About this deal
but all in all, easily recommendable to readers who want a slow-burn story about family lies, neighbourly suspicions, and secrets hidden in plain sight.
Ik I am late, lots of good things have already been said about this book. I on other hand am a bit disappointed. The one person who may have all the answers is the daughter Delilah, suddenly reappearing eleven years later. So where has she been all this time? Can she, will she, answer the looming question regarding what happened to she and her mother? Motivation is always the key factor in any murder mystery book the question of why? have always been fasinating for me because this gives an insight in human nature.See the Full Review and Summary of Local Woman Missing from The Bibliofile.

Meredith and her daughter Delilah have mysteriously vanished. And it isn’t the first time someone went missing in this particular neighborhood. Shelby made that list after disappearing without a trace. It would certainly seem the two cases could be linked. I still think this was a very good read and Mary Kubica fans and many lovers of thrillers would enjoy this book. This book is told through changing timelines and surprisingly it works and is easy to follow. The timeline switched to eleven years prior when the women go missing to present day. There are four points of views. One is Delilah, who has been held captive for eleven years and her subsequent escape. Then there is, Leo (Delilah's brother,) Meredith (Delilah's mother) and Kate (a neighbour of Delilah's.)I’m still rounding up 3.5 stars to 4 because it would be not fair to give this book three stars; it’s still one of the best written books with worst conclusion!
