I’m on a roll this week. Another unputdownable novel. This time THE VANISHING YEAR, by Kate Moretti. It’s a page-turner for sure. Kept me going until the bitter end.
You know, when something seems too good to be true, you can usually assume it is. In this case the story begins with Zoe Whittaker living the dream life. A penthouse apartment in Manhattan, a dreamy gorgeous filthy-rich Wall Street husband. And Zoe is beautiful! She’s got it all, right? Wrong.
Just a few years ago Zoe was someone else. She’s changed her identity and fled to NYC. She’s working in a little flower shop when Henry Whittaker arrives on the scene. Sweeps her off her feet and marries her in four short months; rags to riches. Lucky Zoe. Hm
But it seems everyone’s hiding something in this blockbuster psychological thriller. It’s edgy. It’s exciting. And it’s full of adventure and mystery. It’s also complex. What’s not to love?
We also find that Zoe is looking for her birth mother. Her husband is not happy about this. He wants to keep her to himself. The first red flag.
But why is Zoe hiding? Who’s looking for her? And who’s Tara? So many questions. They will all keep you up way into the night looking for the answers.
I don’t read a lot of thrillers. But when I find one this good I want to tell the world.
I read THE VANISHING YEAR by Kate Moretti as a digital review copy via net galley and Atria publishing. Really, really good!
