Last Girl Ghosted by Lisa Unger
In my opinion...
This is a very contemporary novel dealing with dating apps and ghosting- an uncomfortable reality, as well as other issues such as PTSD , control and also a nod to Covid.
In this story, the interesting Wren has met Adam , and believes they are a perfect match, until he disappears. But she doesn't want to give up on him, and determines to find out why he has ghosted her.
From then on the story moves at pace, layer upon layer of Wren's life is peeled back, and the twists start.
The likeable detective Bailey reveals that other girls who had relationships with Adam are missing , but Wren is sure that she was different.
As a reader you feel very connected, as the story is told mainly in the first person..and when it cleverly changes, I was concerned!
A dark and 'enjoyable' hard to put down novel, full of suspense, and right to the end I wasn't sure what the outcome would be.

You trusted him with your secret…and then he vanished.
When Wren Greenwood meets a good-looking stranger from a dating app, she expects a casual fling – but they connect immediately. Adam Harper is her perfect match.
She falls for him.
She confides in him.
And then he disappears… his profiles deleted, his phone disconnected, his Manhattan apartment emptied.
First, Wren blames herself. Then she hears about the other girls – girls who fell in love with Adam, and are now missing.
Wren needs answers, but as she follows the breadcrumb trail Adam left behind, it leads back to her own dark past. Suddenly, she’s no longer sure if she’s predator or prey.
She only knows one thing: whatever it takes, she’ll be the last girl he ever ghosts…
An extremely satisfying four glasses
