My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Watch Me Disappear is my book club’s May pick. And I sure hope I can remember all the details by the time we meet up on May 29th because I read this one so far in advance of our gathering!
I really loved the concept of this book. Wife and mom, Billie Flanagan, goes hiking in the woods alone and disappears. A year later, her husband Jonathan and daughter Olive are coming to terms with the fact that she’s probably dead. But suddenly Olive starts having visions of her mother and she starts to question if her mom could still be alive. As they dig deeper into Billie’s past, they will discover a web of deception and trail of lies.
Janelle Brown did such a good job keeping me guessing for the duration of this book. I never knew what was coming next and loved the ride. There was maybe a small portion in the middle that lulled a bit, but it quickly picked back up until the end.
The relationship dynamics were really strong between the characters, and I enjoyed the twists toward the end. The epilogue was particularly well written and tied together all of the loose ends and questions that were outstanding.
Overall, I was a fan of Watch Me Disappear and can’t wait to read other works by Brown in the future.
