My 7th Kubica book and goodness do I just love her! Her latest, Local Woman Missing, is a complex thriller that proves to me that small communities and knowing your neighbors are not great things... again. 🤣 The opening is a banger. I was instantly hooked. GIMME GIMME! We get several POVs throughout the read and two timelines. I always love seeing how the timelines come together and seeing the story through different sets of eyes. Neighbors, wives, sons, husbands, lovers, kidnappings, murders, irreparable decision making.... it's all here, folks.
After the banger opening, it continued to hook me but I did get a little bit bored in the middle. This could be just from being so busy this week that I didn't get to one-sit read like I normally would. But damn, those last few chapters... I had suspicions and was right about one of them. The rest were complete surprises. Somehow they didn't hit me as hard as I thought they would but hell, I do love a good surprise twist or two. I also feel like I still needed answers on a couple of things that got pushed aside but nothing that impaired the storyline by any means.
Listen, if you are a thriller lover and haven't read Kubica yet, you're missing out. Extremely talented, all of the books I've read by her are super fun to read. She pulls you right into her pages and keeps you on your toes. My favorite is still Every Little Lie but you really can't go wrong with any of them....more
