A heart-pounding thriller that involves a parent’s worst fear

Wherever She Goes: A Novel

By: Kelley Armstrong

Rating: 5 of 5

This is the first novel I have read by Kelley Armstrong. As soon as I finished it, I went looking to see if she had other books in a similar genre. It appears that she generally writes paranormal books, which is why I had never heard of her before. My hope is that she will write more urban-style thrillers as this one was so compelling and well-written, I can hardly wait to read more of books that are similar in style. As I don’t read paranormal books, I will have to wait.

In this book, which is a thriller mystery, Aubrey Finch (aka Bree) is working part-time at a library. She is newly separated from her husband, Paul, who is a well-to-do lawyer. She has left her daughter with her husband until she is able to provide a better living space for her.

She misses her daughter and often takes her run through a park which includes a children’s play area. One day, she happens across a young mother and her son and chats with them a bit.

Days later, she is running and she sees the young son by himself. As she is looking for his mother, he wanders into the parking lot and is taken against his will.

Thus begins a book with twists and turns. There are individuals with secret pasts that catch up with them.

Bree is trying to find the missing child and no one seems to believe that she saw what she saw. Her sanity is questioned, she becomes a suspect, her past is slowly revealed and we discover there is a lot more to Bree than a stay-at-home mom.

I would love to see Bree in future books. Her skills are amazing as is her tenacity and caring for a child she has just met.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
