Thank you NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for letting me read this book in exchange for my honest review.This is my first book by this author. I quite enjoyed it and will read more of their work.
What a twisty mysterious book. Michael is not who he seems to be and Natalie is slowly figuring it out. While on vacation in NYC, Natalie and their two children disappear and Michael is left on a quest to find them. Natalie travels through the US trying to stay one step ahead of Michael while trying to keep their children safe from him.
This book was great and it really kept me interested and invested into the plot. It kept the intrigue going and the plot was superb! I also liked the first book I read by Dj Palmer and this follow up was just as great, if not better!
I LOVE DJ Palmer. There is not one book that I haven't read that I do not like. His writing style is so engaging and keeps you wrapped up in the characters and the storyline. Next thing you know you have read the whole book and left in a book hangover. This story follows a man whose wife and children go missing during vacation. Finding out all the leads up to the disappearance is crazy. At first I thought the husband was paranoid but changed my mind real quick. It will keep you questioning throughout the whole book until the end
While solid twists and turns and a really twisted and twisty ending…I wish I’d skipped this one. The slog thru the first half, the “loving wife” role despite two decades of lies told to her, and the lack of character development by Michael…didn’t feel worth the time
Finally found the mood and time to tackle this one and kicking myself for putting it off so long. This is a fast-paced thriller that twists and turns throughout. This is a compelling story that keeps the pages turning. I definitely enjoyed it and highly recommend it to those thriller lovers.

This twisty thriller had me guessing throughout the book. Is Michael good or bad? His wife delusional or right to leave?? I've enjoyed a few of this author's books and while this one wasn't my favorite it's a solid psychological game of cat and mouse.
What a great intense book from the first page to the very last! I absolutely love the cop, you did such a great job writing that character. This is a fantastic story and I recommend that everyone read it! Thanks for such a great job!
I loved this book. Such a fast-paced thriller that had me hooked from beginning to end. A must read!
My Wife is Missing by D.J. Palmer is a gripping and suspenseful thriller that will keep readers guessing until the very end. Palmer is a skilled storyteller who knows how to create tension and intrigue, and this book is a great example of his talent.
A family vacation turns into a nightmare for Michael Hart when he discovers his wife and two children have disappeared from their New York City hotel room. Horrified, he fears they've been kidnapped. Michael's frantic search to find them takes a shocking turn when he discovers that his wife, Natalie, appears to have left quite willingly, taking their children with her. The police want to know why, and so does Michael. While untangling his deceptions might be the key to locating Natalie, Michael knows it could also be his undoing.
This is a twisty and captivating read. Palmer takes care to develop each character and give them their own unique motivations, making them feel like real people rather than just plot devices.
Overall, I would highly recommend My Wife is Missing to fans of suspenseful thrillers. D.J. Palmer has crafted a fast-paced and engaging novel that will keep readers guessing until the very end.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for sending a digital ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This is my first book by D.J. Palmer and I think its safe to say, it wont be my last. This book was truly a rollercoaster ride. The beginning hooked me, but then as I kept reading, it became a little repetitive for me, but I kept going and overall really enjoyed the book. Sometimes unreliable narrators really bother me, I am just not into that trope in general! This one was bothersome at times, but I was able to still read and enjoy the book!
I loved this book and couldn't put it down! It was definitely a page turner and one of the better thrillers I have read in a long time.
This book was a very good book. Started out kind of slow for me, but picked up more towards the middle of the book. Looking forward to reading more books from this author in the near future. Very good thriller.
Let’s play a game of three things, one thing that has gone well that day, one day that you’re grateful for, and one thing you wish you had done differently.
The last three things Michael heard his wife utter was “Today I got us packed and ready to go. I’m grateful for the truth. I wish I did this sooner.” He Had no idea that within a day his wife and children would be missing.
D.J. Palmer has definitely become an auto buy author ever since I read his book from last year The Perfect Daughter. I really was expecting to be blown away by this one and it really didn’t disappoint. The more I read the more Intense this novel became.
This is definitely a novel that’s binge worthy and you should definitely put it on You’re TBRs! My Wife Is Missing releases March 10th!
My Wife Is Missing is a propulsive page turner that kept me on the edge of my seat, needing to know what happened! I love D.J. Palmer's writing style and this one really started off with a bang. I did struggle a bit with all the secrets and characters to keep up with at times, but all in all this was a solid twisty reading ride and I look forward to reading what comes out next!
Thank you to the publisher for my gifted review copies.
Suspensful and twisty....Michael and Natalie are going through a rough patch in their marriage. She is convinced he is having an affair with one of her coworkers and he denies it, but she doesn’t believe it. Natalie begins to suffer from severe insomnia from all her thoughts and is causing her to question every aspect of her life. Things start to take a strange turn when Michael and Natalie take their two children on a trip to New York. Michael goes to pick up dinner when he returns to find Natalie and the kids are gone. He calls hotel security and the police because he is convinced they have been kidnapped but it shows that they left on their own. Michael is determined to bring them home as where Natalie vows to never come back. Thanks NetGalley and the publisher for the advance ecopy.
I was underwhelmed by this book. It had many positives but was lacking in story and character development. I found it easy to guess where the story was going.
Okay… I wanted to like this one but it felt all over the place in the beginning and about half way through I had to put it down because of this.
I hope to come back and finish it, because I believe it has potential!
This book was very interesting. I’ve never read a book similar to this one which is always a good thing. It was original and I couldn’t put it down.
Thank you to St Martin's Press and NetGalley for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
D.J Palmer does not disappoint!
His stories are full of unexpected twists and turns, with perfectly timed reveals!
A woman and her two children disappear at the beginning of a family trip. Her husband is panicked and will do anything to find his family. Was this a kidnapping or were other factors in place that led to the disappearance?
We are led on a cat and mouse race where questions are answered but new ones arise. Whose truth should be believed and who is lying through their teeth.
Lots of action, twists and turns to keep a reader motivated forward to a shocking conclusion.
One of the best books I've read in 2022!
Great suspenseful novel and when you finish this one, pick up any of his other novels!
