Both of You by Adele Parks

Thank you to HQ for the invitation to join the paperback publication launch event for Both of You by Adele Parks and the gorgeous package above. Today I’m sharing a mini review for Both of You.


Happy. Married. Missing.

Leigh Fletcher, devoted wife and stepmum, goes to work one day and never returns home.

Same week, different world … Kai Janssen leaves her sexy, wealthy husband and their luxurious penthouse, and vanishes into thin air.

Both husbands seem distraught, claiming they have no idea where their wives have gone.

DC Clements wants answers. Did these women run away or were they taken? Most importantly, where are they now? When the detective discovers a shocking link between the missing women, it’s clear the truth can devastate. Now Clements must work against a ticking clock, before both wives disappear forever.

The Sunday Times Number One bestseller Adele Parks returns with her most provocative book to date: Both Of You.

My thoughts:

Having enjoyed reading books by Adele in the past, I was thrilled to be invited to read Both of You during the recent paperback publication week and to attend the zoom launch event.

The story is set in March 2020, just as London entered the first Covid-19 lockdown. DC Clements is investigating the disappearance of two women, who both appear to have disappeared without trace.

I enjoyed how the story evolved, as we started to discover more about Leigh, Kai and their husbands. There are a number of suspects, and I found myself changing my mind more than once as to who was behind the disappearances.

It is difficult to say much more without giving away the plot. I enjoyed the whole story and whilst there are a couple of ‘could this really happen’ moments, this was a book I didn’t want to put down and read late into the night.
