In her 19th novel (after Love the Way You Lie), Unger introduces readers to Wren Greenwood, who seems to have her life together except for a lack of romantic love. She downloads the dating app Torch and, after a few lukewarm dates, meets and falls in love with Adam. Then he ghosts her. Readers soon learn that Wren has a complicated and painful background, and that Adam may not be who he says he is. Wren sets out to find the truth while working with Bailey, a private detective searching for a woman who seems to be connected with both Adam and Torch. In the process, Wren must confront her past and try to make things right for herself and for others. The well-drawn secondary characters make Unger’s mystery even more dynamic, and the plot twists come fast.
VERDICT Unger keeps readers guessing, with revelations that will make them stop and question what they thought they knew. She might also make them think twice about online dating. Recommended for those who like psychological thrillers with women protagonists, such as Andrea Bartz’s We Were Never Here.
