My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Nicolette Holland is a high school cheerleader, the popular, likable girl that had never expected to be on the run. But when a young girl is murdered Nicolette finds herself doing just that, running. She changes her appearance and finds odd jobs to support herself all while trying to hide.
Jack Manx is doing his best to not get dragged into his family’s illegal business. He’s a model student with the straight As and athletic trophies. But when his brother insists that Jack needs to find Nicolette Holland and kill her because she has killed someone or if he doesn’t his family will be in danger Jack doesn’t know how to escape living up to the Manx name.
How to Disappear is one of those reads that I just expected a bit more from it when I was reading. It wasn’t a bad read but it didn’t have that grab me and not let go intensity that I enjoy from a thriller read.
The story is told changing back and forth from Nicolette and Jack’s perspectives with it starting off with Nicolette going on the run after something happened. By the time the two encounter each other it turns more into a romance type of read than anything. By the time it gets back to the thriller part of the story it almost felt like just rushed to a conclusion at that point.
Overall, 3.5 stars, an OK read but would’ve enjoyed more intensity.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
