I Want You Gone by Miranda Rijks – #BOOKREVIEW #AMREADING

Thank you Netgalley, Miranda Rijks and Inkubator Books for the advanced copy!

What would you do id suddenly your social media profile claimed you were dead? You would probably chalk it up to someone hacking into your profile, but what if you’re questioned at work about your obituary being in the paper? How would you explain that?

I was hooked, wondering why and who would think to do something like that. The detail behind her death meant that Laura now had to worry about whether her last breath would be behind the wheel in a car accident like the obituary read.

A quick read that keeps you invested in the story. I wasn’t a huge fan of Laura’s but I’m not sure how I would react if a similar fate was mine.

If you’re looking for a thrilling ride, this one is it… although you may discover the perpetrator quickly, I promise that you’ll keep guessing until the reveal!


Laura Swallow is dead. 
A life cut tragically short, says the newspaper obituary.
But that’s a lie. 
Estate agent Laura did not die in a car accident. She is alive and well.
At first, Laura thinks it’s a sick joke. 
But multiple announcements of her death are followed by increasingly sinister real-life events. Already fragile, struggling to recover from a recent divorce, Laura is plunged into a living nightmare. 
Who can she trust? Her new lover? Her clients and work colleagues? What about her ex-husband and his smug fiancée? Can Laura even rely on her best friends? And why is it that Laura’s present troubles are so tied up with her sister’s sudden death all those years ago?
But one thing Laura is sure of – someone out there wants her to suffer. Wants her gone. 

Advance Praise
