I thought we would be safe here. But I was wrong…

My son Clark and I live in a beautiful cabin outside a rural town, somewhere nobody will find us. I could not have found a more perfect place to start over, shielded by the trees and far away from prying eyes. But when I find a newspaper clipping on my porch, it drives fear into my bones. Widow wanted for murder screams the headline. And that’s my face in the picture, circled with red marker. I look out into the forest, but I can’t see anyone. How did they find me? And what do they want?

I don’t know where to run next, or how to make sure my son is safe. And deep down I know the only way I can finally be free is to find out what really happened that night a year ago, when my dear husband Brett died.

I’m sure I didn’t kill him… did I? But that night is a blur, and as I try to prove my innocence, the dark secrets I uncover force me to question everything I believed. The people I trusted most are not who I thought they were. And the person who is coming for me is very close to home…

An utterly heart-pounding and twisty psychological thriller that will keep you up all night. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, Behind Closed Doors and The Girl on the Train.

The Missing Widow–is about a woman named Meghan who after her husband, who was suffering from cancer was found dead and Meghan becomes the prime suspect. Meghan with her son Ashton then runs away from the small town and moves to another town, under a different name–Zoe and Clark. But almost a year later, Meghan’s past seem to haunt her again.
Did Meghan really kill her husband? Is she really guilty?

This is a nail-bitingly twisted psychological thriller that will put the reader on the edge. The author did a good job with that. The thriller itself is fast-paced filled with twists and turns that you wouldn’t completely expect. The fact that Meghan is possibly an unreliable character and probably may have killed the husband would cast a shadow of doubt on the main character. This is also more like a cat and mouse chase game. The ending of the story was what drew me into the book and I simply couldn’t put the book down. I do like the bit of cliffhanger at the end wondering what on earth is going to happen next.

Overall, if you like a domestic thriller that is quite unputdownable then this book is one for you–worth five stars!

Many thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
