In My Wife is Missing, Michael, his wife Natalie and their two children are celebrating spring break in New York City. On the day they arrive, Michael goes to pick up some pizza alone. When he returns, his family and their luggage are gone. After a frantic search, Michael has to admit his marriage isn’t perfect—but whose is? Since Natalie is battling a dire case of insomnia, Michael worries that she could be delusional.
While I have enjoyed a previous book by this author, My Wife is Missing gave me a distinct feeling of deja vu. I’ve read seemingly hundreds of versions of this plot before. I kept plugging along hoping a great ending would make the time I spent reading worthwhile. It failed.
Unfortunately, My Wife is Missing is a miss for me. 2 stars.
Thanks to St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
