No Spoiler Book Review
Release date April 21, 2020
Janelle Brown’s, Watch Me Disappear, had been on my list for a while. When I saw that she had a new book coming out, I requested it and then crossed my fingers that I would be selected to review it. The story sounded exciting and I am a sucker for anything set at Lake Tahoe, it’s one of my absolute favorite places. I’m still new to getting advance access to books, so when I got approved, it made my day!
The story revolves around two women on opposite ends of the wealth spectrum. Nina was raised by a single mother, life for them was always a struggle. Vanessa was born into a prominent old-money family and given every advantage. Their lives collide when Nina marks Vanessa as the victim of her next con.
At first the two women are the embodiment of the poor vs the 1%. As the story progresses, the two women start coming together in unexpected ways. The stereotypes start to break down. This book was an exciting mystery with timely sociological statements. My only complaint is that the book was a little too long, and the dual narratives had too much overlap. Overall this was an enjoyable read with great visuals of the gorgeous Lake Tahoe area.
This book will appeal to fans of mystery, intrigue and thrillers. Anyone interested in politics, healthcare in the US, and the wealth gap will also like this book.
