Flynn's girlfriend has disappeared. How can he uncover her secrets without revealing his own?

Flynn's girlfriend, January, is missing. The cops are asking questions he can't answer, and her friends are telling stories that don't add up. All eyes are on Flynn—as January's boyfriend, he must know something.

But Flynn has a secret of his own. And as he struggles to uncover the truth about January's disappearance, he must also face the truth about himself.

I received a copy for review from the publisher, this does not influence my thoughts or this review.

When I heard about this debut novel, I knew I had to read it. I’m not one for creepy thrillers but one that explores identity is totally up my alley. If you are looking for a great thriller, Last Seen Leaving is one you shouldn’t miss.

Flynn’s girlfriend January has gone missing. While investigating what’s happened to her, he also comes to question his sexuality and the nature of his past relationship with her. Last Seen Leaving is truly a debut to look out for.

One of my favourite things about reading contemporary novels is the characterization, and as a character-driven reader, I loved Flynn. He had a charming humour that was refreshing and relatable. I also enjoyed the plot which was not too fast-paced but still very compelling. The mystery itself was not too hard to puzzle out but the twists and turns were still compelling and I enjoyed every minute of it

The romance was also adorable, and I just loved the love interest. In general, there’s not much I can say other than read this book! Overall, Last Seen Leaving was a wonderful debut novel that I highly recommend for all readers.

    I haven’t heard that much about this debut so it was great to read a review on one of my favorite blogs! 😀 I was initially put off by the fact that this book is a thriller (and a creepy one at that) but seeing as you really enjoyed it, I think I may end up giving it a try!
