Charlotte is still trying to pick up the pieces from her life imploding after her career as a neuroscience surgeon abruptly came to an end. But she is finally feeling stable when her boyfriend, Peter goes missing. He has been gone without warning before but never this long. When she is contacted by the police to ID a body, she assumes it’s her beloved Peter but what she finds is a woman she doesn’t recognize. She can’t understand why someone she doesn’t know would have her as her emergency contact. But the mystery doesn’t stop there and suddenly Charlotte feels as though her newly stapled together life is rapidly and even more severely coming undone.
In Case of Emergency is 368 pages long and took me two days to read.
I really enjoyed this book and wasn’t expecting all of great twists and turns but I’m giving this a 3.5 out of 5. I have a super irrational pet peeve of the same word being used over and over again to describe something and every time I would see the word repeated I’d get annoyed. I’m not going to say what it was because I don’t want others to over-analyze like me! I really did like this book so please read it.
Thank you, Dutton, for sending me this copy!
