Forget the truth.

Remember the lies.

He wakes up on a deserted beach in Maryland with a gash on his head and wearing only swim trunks. He can’t remember who he is. Everything–his identity, his life, his loved ones–has been replaced by a dizzying fog of uncertainty. But returning to his Maine hometown in search of the truth uncovers more questions than answers.

Lily Reid thinks she knows her boyfriend, Jack. Until he goes missing one night, and her frantic search reveals that he’s been lying to her since they met, desperate to escape a dark past he’d purposely left behind.

Maya Scott has been trying to find her estranged stepbrother, Asher, since he disappeared without a trace. Having him back, missing memory and all, feels like a miracle. But with a mutual history full of devastating secrets, how far will Maya go to ensure she alone takes them to the grave?

Shared fates intertwine in a twisty, explosive novel of suspense, where unearthing the past might just mean being buried beneath it.

What a shocking ending! I love it when mysteries have an ending that is unexpected and untraditional. I thought I knew where things were going, but I was completely wrong!

The novel focuses on 3 characters – Lily (girlfriend of Jack), Maya (stepbrother of Asher) and a mystery man. Obviously the big question is who the mystery man? Is he Jack, Asher, someone else or are Jack and Asher the same person? Thankfully the author doesn’t spend too much on this mystery and before the half point the reader knows who the mystery man is.

The book did hook me the entire time, but there were some slow parts and I did guess some of the reveals. Again the ending was quite a shock and I’m glad that the author took a unconventional route.

3 calculators out of a potential 5. I’m glad I decided to take a chance on Hannah Mary McKinnon, whom I have never read before. I’m glad I did and I’m happy to support an author that lives just in the next city over.

I’m a big fan of multiple characters and multiple storylines. I love it when an author can pull off multiple storylines that at first, don’t seem to have anything in common and then somehow ties beautifully together at the end.

Local Woman Missing did pretty well with all of the different viewpoints, multiple women missing and shifting timelines. At first, I wasn’t a huge fan of the plots being 11 years apart. It seemed like too much of a time gap, but at the end it worked out and I enjoyed getting brother Leo’s view who was just a baby when his mother and sister disappeared.

4 calculators out of a potential 5. I’m pleasantly surprised with Mary Kubica’s newest novel. I swore off her a few years ago after When the Lights Go Out, but I’m really glad I choose to read Local Woman Missing!
