One of my favorite authors so I was super excited to review this one. Fast paced and told from multiple view points over multiple time frames (past and present) - love the double mystery intertwined as well. I went back and forth with who did what and every time I thought I knew what was going to happen there was a spin. Can’t wait to see what this author comes up with next!

Another fantastic book by DJ Palmer! He never fails to create a story with many twists and turns and keeps you guessing until the final page. I only wish he could write faster and I could read slower. Lol. #netgalley #mywifeismissing #djpalmer

D.J. Palmer has long since become one of my favorite mystery and thriller authors, and this excellent whodunit further cemented my stellar opinion of his novels! Where has the wife of the protagonist gone is the million dollar question driving the plot here, and you will read this in one sitting, as I did!

This is a fun and intriguing psychological thriller, full of lots of twists and turns.  I liked if even better than The New Husband by the same author.  I appreciated that all the loose ends tied up nicely with the ending, but I did find some portions of the story to be a bit far-fetched.  Readers will find this one hard to put down!  

Thank you very much to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the advanced reader’s copy of this book.

My Wife is missing is another great book by D.J. Palmer.  There were so many twists and turns I was unable to put it down until I finished reading. The clues were there but I was still surprised at the ending. Palmer really knows how to engage his fans, Thanks for granting my wish in being able to read the advanced readers copy.

Wow!  So many twists and turns.  I couldn't even begin to guess how this book would end.   Another fantastic read from D.J. Palmer.  It started out like your usual case of marital infidelity, but the story took off from there, with one surprise after another.   I could see this being made into a movie.

One of the most terrifying scenarios for any parent would have to be to fear for the safety of their child, and that is exactly the position that Natalie is in in D.J. Palmer’s latest, My Wife is Missing. 

Natalie has discovered that her husband, Michael, had an affair. She has witnessed him turn violent several times, and is petrified for the safety of her children if she confronts him. Instead, Natalie decides to take their two young children and run, and when she is safely hidden away, file for divorce. However, her plan doesn’t go as smoothly as she hoped, and Michael is working to hunt her down. 

On the other hand, Michael is worried sick about his children. He knows that Natalie is struggling from the effects of significant, long term insomnia, to the point that she has been hallucinating. When his family goes missing, he is desperate to find them, as he fears what will happen as Natalie’s insomnia causes her to be increasingly delusional. 

I’ve heard that there are 3 version of every event - yours, mine, and what actually happened. My Wife is Missing leaves the reader continuously questioning whose version of events is accurate. Is Natalie reliable as a narrator, or is she paranoid? Is Michael a violent man, or the victim of his wife’s delusions brought on by her insomnia? As the tale unfolds and we learn more about each character, we are caught up in an increasingly complex web of events that propel us forward to a dramatic conclusion. 

My Wife is Missing has elements of mystery, drama, psychological thrillers, and a parents worst nightmare. Don’t miss out on this one!! Coming to bookshelves near you May 10, 2022, but available for pre-order already! Thank you to D.J. Palmer, St. Martin’s Press, and NetGalley for the early copy!

Thank you to NetGalley for the ARC of this fast-paced thriller that I read in one sitting. My Wife is Missing takes us on a wild ride with Natalie, who is on the run from her husband, and Michael, her husband who will not rest until he finds his wife and their children.

What prompted Natalie to plan her escape from her marriage, leaving her life as far behind her as she possibly can? Is her battle with insomnia causing her to be delusional, or is her husband really an adulterer and a murderer? As the story unfolds, you may find yourself second guessing everything that you thought you knew...

Wow, this book kept me guessing the whole way through. I was sure I had it figured out halfway through and then D.J. threw some more twists in that I didn't expect. I was able to read it early through Netgalley as part of the author's Facebook group. I can't wait to buy a physical copy next year and share it with my co-worker. I have never been disappointed by his books and this is definitely worth 5 stars.

Wow! This was a great great read!!  Total roller coaster of emotions from shock and suspense to flat out being speechless.  Loved the storyline and the author did a brilliant job with execution!  Just did NOT see that coming so many times in the book.  Highly recommend. Big 5 stars from me.

This book will take you on quite an unexpected journey. It is true just because something seems to be true it isn’t always as it seems. What do you do when you go on a family vacation go out to pick up pizza only to return to find your wife and kids missing? There is always more to the story. When life long secrets are uncovered it will leave you not sure what will happen next.
This book will keep you guessing and when you think you have it all figured out you will be shocked to find out the pieces of the story fit together differently. 
Thank you Netgalley for complimentary copy. 
Enjoyed this book a great deal.

The first part of the book was a 2.5 - 3 star read.  It didn't grab me but I was interested.  The last third turned it into a 4.5 star book.  Thanks to Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book

When I first started reading My Wife is Missing , I thought this was another typical story and surprised that DJ Palmer would write a story like this like so many others.  Boy was I wrong.  The plot twists, one after another blew me away.   DJ Palmer never disappoints.  Put this on the big scene, it would make a great movie.

“The thing about guilt is no matter how fast you go, you can’t outrun it.”

Michael and Natalie have hit a crossroads in their marriage in that trust has been lost and fear has become a new norm. Natalie has allowed her speculations about her husband’s infidelity take over her ever waking moment and now it has bled into sleepless nights. The insomnia she suffers from has become “an insidious beast, a predator of the mind.” She knows she must do something to take back her life and protect her family, but how far is she willing to go…

Michael has high hopes this family vacation to NYC will be just what Natalie needs to see that they can work past her delusions brought on by her insomnia. But when he returns to their hotel room finding it empty of his wife and children, how will he explain to the authorities his wife is missing without uncovering a long-kept secret…

Wowza! I mean WOWZA! If you are new to D.J. Palmer’s mind-blowing twisty thrillers, welcome to your newest addiction! This reader loved every heart stopping, nail biting, did not see that ending coming minute! 5+ Stars!!
