Reviews Wherever She Goes

  • Emily May
    If there is any chance that a boy is out there, in trouble, and no one is searching for him, then I must be that one person. The person who cares. The person who gets involved.Whatever the cost. 2 1/2 stars. I've been reading Kelley Armstrong's books for almost ten years now (!!) and at her best she is such a good comfort-read author. Cosy thrillers, fun paranormal romance, strong heroines... but unfortunately this one was just average for me. I ...

    I love this authors Casey Duncan series, such a unusual setting and place. This one is a standalone, or maybe part of a new series.

    I adore Kelley Armstrong, and while I didn't love Wherever She Goes as much as her urban fantasy novels, it was still a worthy read, and one I did enjoy. The author has taken a story that's been done before and put her own spin on it, which will work for many folks, especially those looking for a surface level, fast paced psychological thriller. Although I can't quite put my finger on why, I didn't find the characters in this story as compelling ...

  • Carrie
    Wherever She Goes by Kelley Armstrong is one of those crazy thrillers that keeps you guessing whether there’s even anything to solve. What you have is an unreliable narrator hiding her own secrets while insisting a crime has happened.Aubrey Finch has just left her marriage behind her after years of hiding her past from her husband. Aubrey and her husband still share custody of their daughter though while they work out the divorce with Aubrey ge...

    I’ve not read many of Kelley Armstrong’s books, but I do enjoy her writing. This one pulled me right in. I was beginning to suspect Aubrey was going mental. Then I kept thinking back to the people in the pizza joint. They’re what kept me grounded. So, I really enjoyed this one. I should catch up on her other books besides the Rockton series.
  • Mlpmom (Book Reviewer)
    Armstrong always delivers with an action packed, suspense filled mystery that kept me turning the pages and eager for more. Wherever She Goes was all these things and best of all, kept me guessing numerous times and had me swaying back and forth with exactly what was going on and what in Aubrey's past was catching up to her. A story where everyone is suspect and you never know who to believe or what is going to happen next this was fun filled wit...

    5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2019/06/27/...I just finished Wherever She Goes by Kelley Armstrong and it was so intense that sitting down to write this review now, my heart is still pounding a mile a minute in my chest. I’m a huge fan of the author’s thrillers, in particular her Rockton series, and it was a delight to find that this was in the same league in terms of excitement and drive, though of course it was ...
  • Terri Wino
    I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This was a solid 3-1/2 stars for me, but not one that I'd round up to 4.Let me start by saying that Kelley Armstrong is one of my favorite authors and I absolutely love the majority of her books. Unfortunately, I wasn't quite as enamored with this one. I thought it was good and it absolutely held my attention to the point that I read it in two sittings, so I defin...
  • Kathy Martin
    WHEREVER SHE GOES was a fast-paced, tension-filled, twisty thriller. Aubrey Finch didn't think much about talking to a young mother and son when she is playing in the park with her daughter. But when she sees the boy again a few days later and sees him being dragged into a car, she knows she has to do something. The only problem is that no one has reported a child abduction and the police don't believe that Aubrey saw what she saw.It is time for ...
  • Katie
    I think it's really great that Kelley Armstrong is able to try out different genres, but also most of her non-urban fantasy ones just . . . don't really work for me. Mostly, this was boring. There was too much of Aubrey's past concealed in the beginning and there were times near the beginning when (view spoiler)[I really wasn't sure if I should believe her (hide spoiler)].Anyway, Armstrong is an interesting case for me because I always consider h...

    This book really didn't go where I thought it would after the start of it. I was on the fence with Aubrey and her choices to leave her family, but as things went on and we learned about her past her choice made sense and she was doing what she thought was right. Aubrey was great with Charlie, right there playing with her, being in the moment.When Aubrey witnessed the kidnapping things really changed for her. She knew what she saw, but the sad thi...

Aubrey briefly meets a young mother and her son at the park one day and she witnesses the little boy a few days later get snatched.

  • Maranda
    Another Awesome Armstrong! Question! Who is Aubrey Finch? Yes she is a soon to be ex-wife, a mother, part time librarian, and a women with a maze of secrets in her past. All this being said; She comes across as a peculiar personality enlisting scowls and reluctance to believe her from others. Nevertheless; She has skills to take matters into her own hands when Police refuse to believe she has witnessed a young boy's kidnapping. Lots to keep the p...

    Thanks to the publisher, via Netgalley, for an advance e-galley for honest review. 3 stars? 3.5 stars? I feel as though I'm being somewhat ungenerous in ratings lately.As a big fan of Kelley Armstrong's Rockton series, I was interested in what she was going to do with this standalone thriller. I found Wherever She Goes to be a decently paced story with an intriguing main character who is still holding herself accountable for the initially unclear...

    Thank you, Minotaur Books and Penguin Random House Canada for copies of Wherever She Goes, in exchange for my honest review. This title released June 25, 2019.I really enjoyed Armstrong’s Cainsville books and read Watcher in the Woods earlier this year from her Rockton series, and have been a huge fan of her writing for some time. You can imagine my excitement when the release of this book was announced – SIGN ME UP!This was fast-paced story ...
  • Lata
    3.5 stars. A tense story about a woman who reports a young boy’s kidnapping, only to have the police not believe her. She begins investigating on her own, all the while trying to raise her daughter, deal with her husband, with whom she’s separated, and keep her own less than legal past hidden from everyone.The pace is fast, and while I enjoyed the story (I listened to the whole thing in one day), and I liked how competent the main character w...
  • Steph Eddington
    I received an ARC from the publisher for an honest review. I give this novel 3.5 stars. I have enjoyed prior Kelley Armstrong novels. However, even though the story kept my interest, it seemed loosely put together. Some parts were plausible while others were not so much. I feel the author wasn't in love with her story. It was a good idea that kind of fizzled out near the end. Of course, this is all just opinion on my part.

    3.5 starsWherever She Goes is an engaging thriller from one of my favorite urban fantasy writers. Bree is a soon-to-be divorced young mother who witnesses a kidnapping in a local park. Only no one believes her as there has been no report of a missing child. When circumstances prove to Bree that not only was she right but that the child likely is in danger, she falls back on her skills from her former life which she has kept secret from her husban...

  • julia ☆ [owls reads]
    2 stars.* What have I done? Wherever She Goes is a fast paced and tense novel with complex characters and an intriguing, if not that fleshed out, plot. There is quite a bit of mystery and suspense surrounding the main character, Aubrey, which leads to a bit of confusion regarding the narrative as the story progresses. The writing is still really engaging and Aubrey’s POV is well done, so this is a quick and entertaining read.Kelley Armstrong ...
