The Missing Wife by Sam Carrington – #BOOKREVIEW @sam_carrington1

What a fantastic story!

Mixing the past with the present, Louisa struggles to find the truth in both after her 40th birthday party goes down with some added drama. Being a new mom again with a teen daughter, Louisa is struggling with sleep, hormones, turning 40, and sudden visions that become increasingly unnerving, all while her past arrives on her doorstep with more questions, than answers.

People aren’t who you expect them to be, nor do they always behave the way you want. Louisa learns the hard way that people aren’t always who you think they are and has to come to terms with new information about her life that rocks her world and those around her.

Who is really to blame for the horrible incident from the past? Who can be trusted? Can Louisa even trust herself…

Thank you Netgalley, Same Carrington and Avon Books UK for the Advanced Copy! I’ve since picked up another one from Sam and can’t wait to dive in!


Imagine turning up to your own party, and recognising no one. Your best friend has just created your worst nightmare.

Louisa is an exhausted, sleep-deprived new mother and, approaching her fortieth birthday, the very last thing she wants to do is celebrate.

But when her best friend Tiff organises a surprise party, inviting the entire list of Lou’s Facebook friends, she’s faced with a new source of anxiety altogether: a room full of old college classmates who she hasn’t spoken to in twenty years. And one person in particular she never expected to see again is there – her ex-boyfriend from college, the handsome and charismatic Oliver Dunmore.

When Oliver’s wife Melissa goes missing after the party, everyone remembers what happened that night differently. It could be the alcohol, but it seems more than one person has something to hide.

Louisa is determined to find the truth about what happened to Melissa. But just how far does she need to look…?

One simple Facebook invitation unfolds into something both tragic and monstrous; a story of obsessive love, breath-taking deception and masterful manipulation.
