Today’s feature is a NetGalley ARC : Don’t Look for Me, by Wendy Walker- (NetGalley – 9/15/20)
Intro: Day One

The car abandoned miles from home.
The note found at a nearby hotel.
The shattered family that couldn’t be put back together.

It happens all the time.
Women disappear, desperate to leave their lives behind and start over.
