About the book
Think twice before you swipe.
She met him through a dating app. An intriguing picture on a screen, a date at a downtown bar.
What she thought might be just a quick hookup quickly became much more.
She fell for him—hard. It happens sometimes, a powerful connection with a perfect stranger takes you by surprise.
Could it be love?
But then, just as things were getting real, he stood her up.
Then he disappeared—profiles deleted, phone disconnected. She was ghosted.
Maybe it was her fault.
She shared too much, too fast.
But isn’t that always what women think—that they’re the ones to blame?
Soon she learns there were others. Girls who thought they were in love.
Girls who later went missing.
She had been looking for a connection, but now she’s looking for answers.
Chasing a digital trail into his dark past—and hers—she finds herself on a dangerous hunt.
And she’s not sure whether she’s the predator—or the prey.
Last Girl Ghosted was a book I was quite excited about as I had read Confessions on the 7:45am. The book started fine with Wren making her profile on a dating app, then a swipe and connection with Adam.
After knowing her deepest secret, he disappeared. Closed all his accounts and ghosted her. Or perhaps he was the ghost in this case.
Then came a PI in search of girls who had disappeared after coming in contact with Adam or his many pseudo names. Wren needed to know the truth.
The beginning of the book was quite exciting, but I was not fond of the writing style as it had too many ruminations, though Wren’s world was fascinating as she had rebuilt it from the dark web after a bloody past.
The book kept going into different time frames with the writing in both third and second persons. That confused me and diluted my interest in the book. It felt the story lost direction as it had many POVs and some of the lines were repetitive. The suspense and thrill were lost in the attempt to build up a darker atmosphere.
I found Wren taking stupid decisions. The author did try to show how the past would cause the mind to break and then rejoin, finding its own ways to adapt. Wren found hers with an imaginary person Robin. Or was she part of her past?
My mind lost its way trying to decipher the fact from all the thoughts that Wren felt I had to know – actually I didn’t really care about them. The dialogues were quite preachy about forgiveness and the whole book didn’t give me the vibe of a thriller.
It was not for me, maybe it would be apt for you. Though I doubt it.
Publication Date: October 2021
I downloaded the digital version of the book from an online retail, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
