Wren Greenwood is 28 years old, lives in Brooklyn and has a thriving podcast and advice column she writes called “Dear Birdie.” She hasn’t been lucky in love so she is encouraged by her best friend Jax to try the dating app Torch. On it she connects with, meets and quickly falls for Adam Harper. He is smart, engaging, quotes Rilke and appears to be everything she is looking for. She opens up to him in a way that she’s never done before. And then one day he is gone. All his contact information has disappeared. She’s been ghosted. Soon a private detective shows up who is looking for a missing woman named Mia. Mia’s last relationship also traces back to Torch. Two other woman have also gone missing. Could Adam be responsible?
Wren is a lot more complicated than simply a woman wronged – she has much to hide. Her backstory emerges as Wren searches for Adam. Wren is a character I rooted for although I am getting a bit tired of women in thrillers who are smart yet make bad and dangerous decisions. Author Lisa Unger has followed up her entertaining book Confessions on the 7:45 with another intriguing story that held me captive throughout.
Last Girl Ghosted is a dark psychological thriller that also serves as a cautionary tale. It’s worth a look.
Rated 4 out of 5 stars.
