Publisher's Summary

When a woman disappears with her two children, one husband will do anything to find them—even confront the secrets of his own past—in D. J. Palmer's My Wife Is Missing, a twisty thriller from the author of The New Husband...

A family vacation turns into a nightmare for Michael Hart when he discovers his wife and two children have disappeared from their New York City hotel room. Horrified, he fears they’ve been kidnapped. Michael’s frantic search to find them takes a shocking turn when he discovers that his wife, Natalie, appears to have left quite willingly, taking their children with her. The police want to know why, and so does Michael. But there may be a reason why Natalie ran, something Michael can’t tell the police—the truth about his past.

While untangling his deceptions might be the key to locating Natalie, Michael knows it could also be his undoing. To find his wife, he must now turn to the one person capable of exposing all that he’s been hiding. Natalie thinks she has Michael all figured out and has hatched a plan to escape from him permanently. One detail, though, threatens to derail her efforts: sleep—or more accurately, the lack of it. Since the moment the shocking revelations about her husband came to light, Natalie’s insomnia has worsened to the point that she now suffers from delusions.

Are her fears about Michael valid—or a symptom of her condition? With her children’s lives at risk, the stakes for Natalie could not be higher. On her own, running low on energy and resources, avoiding increasingly close calls with Michael—who is on the hunt and closing in fast—Natalie needs someone to turn to for help. But who can she trust when she can’t even trust herself?

Terrible narrator

Stop! Do not listen, only read this book, yourself! The narrator ruins it but the story is good. It could have been so much better. I will make sure to not listen to another book with this narrator. Ugh!

Drags

Could have been 2 hours long. The plot was obvious and it was tedious and over dramatic. Give this one a miss.

A definitely suspenseful page turner!

I found myself unable to stop listening to this thriller. Don't
even try to guess the past or the future of the characters. It almost has too many twists and unexpected turns! This author's skill at writing will leave you breathless. I will look forward to enjoying the movie!

Love the narrator

Karissa made this book better than it might have been. And I’m being nit-picky here, but the title isn’t very good. The book also eludes to the laws surrounding removal of children across state lines. And as I was listening I questioned the truth of the stated laws. Anyway, pretty good book that kept me guessing.

great book

I loved this book. I thought I knew where it was going, Then I found I was wrong, then I thought I figured out and another change. Right to the end. I will definitely check out other books by this author! I saw a few negative reviews and almost passed it by. I decided to take a chance and I'm glad I did!!

Not a page turner for me!

The storyline here failed to involve me. The forces motivating the characters seemed downright silly--not good for a psychological thriller. The pace was slow due to the wordy writing style. I rolled my eyes at an ending that no reader could ever guess. I did enjoy other work by this author, but this one was a complete miss.
