The Vanishing Year
This post may contain affiliate links.
Book Synopsis(via Goodreads):
Zoe Whittaker is living a charmed life. She is the beautiful young wife to handsome, charming Wall Street tycoon Henry Whittaker. She is a member of Manhattan’s social elite. She is on the board of one of the city’s most prestigious philanthropic organizations. She has a perfect Tribeca penthouse in the city and a gorgeous lake house in the country. The finest wine, the most up-to-date fashion, and the most luxurious vacations are all at her fingertips.
What no one knows is that five years ago, Zoe’s life was in danger. Back then, Zoe wasn’t Zoe at all. Now her secrets are coming back to haunt her. As the past and present collide, Zoe must decide who she can trust before she—whoever she is—vanishes completely.
The Vanishing Year combines the classic sophistication of Ruth Rendell and A.S.A. Harrison with the thoroughly modern flair of Jessica Knoll. Told from the point-of-view of a heroine who is as relatable as she is enigmatic, The Vanishing Year is an unforgettable new novel by a rising star of the genre. ***Many thanks to Net Galley and Atria books for this advanced reader's copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.***
This insomniac's opinion:
Absolutely ravishing domestic thriller. I lost myself inside the mystery of who Zoe is and what exactly her past was. I read the book cover to cover in one weekend(even as I was busy with my three kids activities). A perfect thriller to read under the covers as the night's grow cold. Worth staying up all night to read? Yes. Rating: 4 stars.
