A UICK ENCOUNTER WITH A MOTHERuick encounter with a mother son that leaves an impression The next day when she sees that same boy being taken against his will at the park she nows she has to get involved There is one big problem no one has reported the boy missingI was hooked by this story right away There is a lot of different things going on in this story and I loved how everything played out Aubrey has her own secrets and problems in her personal life but she just can t help but try to help that little boy Aubrey proves to have a lot of skills and I thought it was a lot of fun to see how far she was willing to go to try to get to the bottom of the boy s disappearance I thought that Aubrey was a great character and it was really easy to cheer her on with all of the challenges she faced in this storyTherese Plummer did a phenomenal job with the narration of this audiobook She really brought this story to life and added a lot of emotion to her reading I liked the variety of voices that she used in the book for the various characters including a couple of small children I think that she was able to make the story even a bit exciting I am pretty sure that I enjoyed this book just a bit because of her narrationI would recommend this book to others I found this to be a really well done and exciting thriller with a lot of different layers I cannot wait to read from this talented author I received a digital review copy of this book from St Martin s Press Minotaur Books via NetGalley and borrowed a copy of the audiobook from my local libraryInitial ThoughtsWhy didn t I read this one sooner I had a fantastic time with this book and cannot believe that I didn t make room for it in my reading schedule before now I was hooked by this story right away and completely entertained until the very end The mystery was uite complex and there were a lot of different things going on for Aubrey to content with I listened to the audiobook and I thought that Therese Plummer did a great job in bringing this story to life This was a book that I didn t want to put down Wherever She Goes by Kelley Armstrong is one of those crazy thrillers that eeps you guessing whether there s even anything to solve What you have is an unreliable narrator hiding her own secrets while insisting a crime has happenedAubrey Finch has just left her marriage behind her after years of hiding her past from her husband Aubrey and her husband still share custody of their daughte I adore Kelley Armstrong and while I didn t love Wherever She Goes as much as her urban fantasy novels it was still a worthy read and one I did enjoy The author has taken a story that s been done before and put her own spin on it which will work for many folks especially those looking for a surface level fast paced psychological thriller Although I can t uite put my finger on why I didn t find the characters in this story as compelling as others she has created Perhaps they were too generic and unlikable An easy read and one that will be perfect entertainment while chilling by the pool or beach on summer vacation Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy via NetGalley If there is any chance that a boy is out there in trouble and no one is searching for him then I must be that one person The person who cares The person who gets involvedWhatever the cost 2 12 stars I ve been reading Kelley Armstrong s books for almost ten years now and at her best she is such a good comfort read author Cosy thrillers fun paranormal romance strong heroines but unfortunately this one was just average for me I think it s because I feel like I ve read a few hundred versions of this same plotWherever She Goes was most compelling in the beginning when we are first introduced to Aubrey and discover that she is trying to rebuild her life after a recent divorce Her struggles to be a good mother to her three year old da.
