Book: Local Woman Missing
Author: Mary Kubica
This is my 68th read for the year
This is the story of three missing women and the community where they lived. Shelby - who went out running one night and never returned, and Meredith - a midwife and her daughter, Delilah, who disappeared without a trace. As the women turn up dead and the daughter never found, the community is realing thinking a serial killer is on the loose. Moving through time back and forth 11 years, we watch the story of these wome and Delilah - who shockingly returns after being missing for those 11 years - trying to figure out the truth.
This book was just okay. And that is probably being generous. I didn't like one character. They all seemed like horrible people who couldn't possibly be friends. I could never imagine talking to m friends the way these people talked to each other. The ending was terrible. When the truth comes to light it becomes pretty unrealistic. Quite a few plot holes. (if even a mediocre medical examiner did an autopsy on Meredith the mystery would have wrapped up much quicker)
I would skip this one. There are better thrillers.
