Wherever She Goes by K . L. Armstrong Review

I've heard so many great things about Kelley Armstrong and was really excited when I received an early copy from Penguin Random House Canada to read and review. 

I really enjoyed Wherever She Goes. The author incorporated twists and turns that kept me wanting to know more. I thought it had a slow start but it picked up about halfway through and it kept on getting better and better as the pages were turned. 

Aubrey is an interesting character. As she is having a playdate with her daughter at the park, she meets a young mother with her son and they chat a little bit. A few days later, she is sure she witnesses the little boy being kidnapped but the police don't believe her. Immediately, the reader starts asking themselves why? Why is Aubrey not taken seriously? Why are the mothers in the park making her seem like she is a stalker?

As a mother myself, I sympathized with Aubrey and was rooting for her to succeed in both, help finding the little boy and her situation with Paul and their daughter. 

I liked the writing style. The narration flows quickly until the satisfying conclusion. I recommend reading Wherever She Goes as it is a perfect summer read. I will also add other books from the author to my ever growing TBR.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Here's a quick synopsis: 
“Few crimes are reported as quickly as a snatched kid.”

That’s what the officer tells single mother Aubrey Finch after she reports a kidnapping. So why hasn’t anyone reported the little boy missing? Aubrey knows what she saw: a boy being taken against his will from the park. It doesn’t matter that the mother can’t be found. It doesn’t matter if no one reported it. Aubrey knows he’s missing.

Instead, people question her sanity. Aubrey hears the whispers. She’s a former stay-at-home mom who doesn’t have primary custody of her daughter, so there must be something wrong with her, right? Others may not understand her decision to walk away from her safe life at home, but years of hiding her past – even from the people she loves – were taking their toll, and Aubrey knows she can’t be the mother or wife she envisions until she learns to leave her secrets behind.

When the police refuse to believe her, she realizes that rescuing the boy is up to her alone. But after all the secrets, how far is she willing to go? Even to protect a child. (Reference : Goodreads)

Happy reading,
