Local Woman Missing: A Novel by Mary Kubica

(Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book!)

about book:

People don't just disappear without a trace…
Shelby Tebow is the first to go missing. Not long after, Meredith Dickey and her six-year-old daughter, Delilah, vanish just blocks away from where Shelby was last seen, striking fear into their once-peaceful community. Are these incidents connected? After an elusive search that yields more questions than answers, the case eventually goes cold.
Now, eleven years later, Delilah shockingly returns. Everyone wants to know what happened to her, but no one is prepared for what they'll find…
In this smart and chilling thriller, master of suspense and New York Times bestselling author Mary Kubica takes domestic secrets to a whole new level, showing that some people will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried.

my thoughts:

Wow! What a book! Local Woman Missing by Mary Kubica was fantastic!

Shelby lives in a small town that is considered safe - nothing ever happens. She goes for a run one evening and never returns. The police start to think her husband knows more than he's letting on - maybe Shelby isn't really missing? But then, a mother-daughter go missing - Meredith and her six-year-old Delilah. What is going on? Three missing people in such a short time? Something isn't right. Eventually the case goes cold.  Fast forward several years and Delilah returns. She was locked in a basement and was finally able to break free. Except, Leo, Delilah's brother, isn't sure this girl is his sister. If she's not Delilah, who is she? And what happened to Delilah? Talk about gripping, suspenseful, and chock full of mystery! I just loved Local Woman Missing!

Kubica has written a terrific story that will captivate her readers. This is one book you won't want to miss out on. 

I would happily recommend Local Woman Missing to fans of Kubica and to anyone looking for their next great read - check it out!
