Book review: Local Woman Missing by Mary Kubica


Eleven years ago, a young mother in a suburban neighborhood named Shelby goes missing. Shortly after Shelby disappears, Meredith and her daughter, Delilah, disappear.

The community is shocked when Delilah turns up after escaping her kidnappers. Delilah’s brother, Leo, feels like something is off. He doesn’t remember her at all. Is he just jealous since his father has been wishing for this day to come for eleven years? Leo has always been in the shadow of the missing Delilah.

This novel shifts from perspectives between Leo, Delilah, Meredith, and a close neighbor.

My Thoughts:

This was my favorite Mary Kubica novel by far. It reminded me a lot of a Shari Lapena or Lisa Jewell style book.

Local Woman Missing had me up till the wee hours in the morning craving some closure to what happened to these missing women!

I highly recommend this book!
