Last Girl Ghosted

Special thanks to Harper Collins Canada, NetGalley and Lisa Unger for the complimentary digital review copy of Last Girl Ghosted. 

Last Girl Ghosted was published on October 5, 2021—AVAILABLE NOW!

Last Girl Ghosted by Lisa Unger had been sitting on my shelves (real-life and NetGalley) for the last little while because I was hesitant to pick it up—part of me was excited for it while it was being marketed during its release, but another part was worried I wouldn’t like it after seeing several not-so-good early reviews for it.  I was also worried that I wouldn’t like it because I had previously read another book by Unger—Under My Skin—that just didn’t work for me. HOWEVER, I REALLY wish that I didn’t let my worries get the better of me because I thoroughly enjoyed Last Girl Ghosted and I LOVED reading along to the audiobook of it.

In Last Girl Ghosted, we meet Wren Greenwood—a successful columnist and blogger—who is looking for love online, using an app called “Torch” (similar to Tinder).  When Wren meets Adam, the two instantly form an inseparable and deep connection—so deep that Wren feels comfortable enough to share dark secrets about her past with Adam.  Following her ‘confession,’ Adam asks Wren out to a romantic dinner so that they can talk about their future together, but when Wren gets there, she is left waiting on Adam who never makes an appearance.  Wren has been stood up.  On her way home, Wren receives a cryptic text from Adam apologizing for ghosting her, but when she tries to call him, his phone has been disconnected.  Wren is absolutely heartbroken, but is determined to figure out what is going on because there is no way they Adam could just disappear after everything she shared with him.

Last Girl Ghosted is the definition of a popcorn thrillerit’s fun, fast-paced, twisty and full of secrets.  The story is well-written and well executed, the characters are very well developed, and the short and concise chapters paired with the dual timelines (Wren ‘then’ and ‘now’) successfully builds the suspense right up until the end.  I honestly had no idea where this book was going, and none of my theories were right (but it was still fun to guess!).  I definitely recommend this one if you’re looking for an entertaining popcorn thriller. 

I ALSO highly recommend the audio version of it because Vivienne Laheny does an excellent job tweaking her voice for each of the different characters.  Her voice had me hooked from the beginning.

As you can see in the photo, I also bought the book and I am SO glad that I did.  I really need to remember to read other peoples’ reviews with a grain of salt because we’re all different and we all have different opinions.  I also need to remember that each book is different.  Even if one book wasn’t my favourite by a particular author, it doesn’t necessarily mean that all of their other books won’t be my favourites either.  Every book and every person is different and I need to remember that every time I start a new book.


ABOUT LAST GIRL GHOSTED:

Secrets, obsession and vengeance converge in this riveting thriller about an online dating match turned deadly cat-and-mouse game, from the New York Times bestselling author of Confessions on the 7:45.

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.
