Watch Me Disappear

I went into this book thinking it was a major thriller and it’s not. Because of that I found it to be a little slow. So learn from mistake and you’re really going to enjoy this one. Author Janelle Brown is a very talented writer and I always think it does an author a disservice when their books are misrepresented.


Title: Watch Me Disappear

Author: Janelle Brown

Publisher: Penguin Random House

Genre: Domestic Mystery

Watch Me Disappear introduces us to what looks like the perfect marriage and perfect family. Wife Billie and writer Jonathan are happily married. Olive is a rising junior in private school. All is well. Or so it seems. Until Billie goes away for a solo weekend hike and never returns. Her body is never found, only a single hiking boot and shattered cell phone.

Jonathan and Olive aren’t coping well and Olive begins to have visions of her mother still being alive. Worried about his daughter’s emotional well being, Jonathan begins to dig into his wife’s past and is surprised by some of things he finds. Will they find the truth!? What happened to Billie!?

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️.75 I really enjoyed Pretty Things last year and wanted to read more of author Janelle Brown’s backlist. This one is from 2017. While this one wasn’t my absolute favorite, I still enjoyed it can confirm without a doubt that author Janelle Brown’s writing is top notch!

This was August’s #inwiththeoldbookclub pick! We even got to meet with Janelle on zoom and she is just so fantastic and kind to engage with all of her readers. I’m excited for her new book “I’ll Be You” about twin sisters coming out next April.
