I just finished reading "Last Girl Ghosted" by Lisa Unger. I have read this author before and loved her novels. This one did not dissapoint either. I was enthralled by the main character and her many levels of pain. I wanted her to heal and love and be loved, so I experienced every emotion she felt throughout the story.
The story revolves around a young woman who meets someone on-line and is drawn to him in such a way that shows how deeply she wants to be loved. You can feel that she is in pain and has suffered much trauma in her life. Just when she is finally feeling happy, the man disappears...he has ghosted her. Enter a detective who is looking for a missing girl, and that unfolds a greater mystery of who the "ghost" is and why Wren, the main character is still attracted to him.
Lisa Unger has a great ability to create layered characters who are tormented by their past and as a result, make some bad decisions. But her ability to create these characters is what makes the book so hard to put down, because the reader cares about the character and what happens to them.
Around Wren, there are wonderful supporting characters which make the novel even more readable. I honestly had a hard time putting this one down.
I want to that Net Galley for giving me an advance copy of this book to read, and am happy to recommend this book to anyone who enjoys this genre.
Happy Reading everyone!
