Who here loves true crime podcasts? I for one do! My love of true crime started early. My grandma loved the TV show Unsolved Mysteries so I grew up on a steady diet of Unsolved Mysteries and 20/20. I was sure I was going to get abducted and murdered at every turn only to make national news…..all from the tender age of nine. I had a very active imagination.
Needless to say my love of true crime hasn’t diminished in the least! I still watch way way way too much ID Discovery and listen to too many true crime podcasts! And don’t get me started on the books and fictional true crime style novels that are on my TBR! One of my favorite shows on ID Discovery is Disappeared. I am absolutely fascinated by that show, to me disappearances are more chilling than an actual murder or dead body. It’s the unknown.
When I saw this book was coming out I actually squealed! A disappearance, true crime, AND a podcast host? Yes yes and yes! Today I am sharing a little about this book because it sounds absolutely delectable. I love the cover and the sound of it, so much that I am taking it to my book club (a murder mystery book club) to see if they want to read this one for our February pick! But until then, if you love true crime podcasts and thrillers, you might want to take a look at this one!
When her favorite true crime podcast host goes missing, an adrift young woman plunges headfirst into the wild backcountry of Northern California and her own dangerous obsession.
Sera loves true crime podcasts. They make her feel empowered in a world where women just like her disappear daily. She’s sure they are preparing her for something. So when Rachel, her favorite podcast host, goes missing, Sera knows it’s time to act. Rachel has always taught her to trust her instincts.
Sera follows the clues hidden in the episodes to an isolated ranch outside Rachel’s small hometown to begin her search. She’s convinced her investigation will make Rachel so proud. But the more Sera digs into this unfamiliar world, the more off things start to feel. Because Rachel is not the first woman to vanish from the ranch, and she won’t be the last…
Rachel did try to warn her.
