A writer’s misguided suspicions ruined his life once before. This time he plans to prove he’s right in a New York Times bestselling author’s haunting short story of what happens when seeing is not believing.
Will, an aspiring novelist, can’t stop parsing his ex-girlfriend’s popular social media accounts for clues that her ideal new rural life with the perfect man has a dark side. After all, nobody he knows has actually seen the blissful blogger in the flesh for nearly a year. When Will draws a wary friend into his “investigation,” the real question becomes who’s truly in danger.
Lisa Unger’s Let Her Be is part of Hush, a collection of six stories, ranging from political mysteries to psychological thrillers, in which deception can be a matter of life and death. Each piece can be read or listened to in one truly chilling sitting.
“Perfect for reading in a single breathless sitting.” —Bookish

Based on her IG posts, they decide that Anisa is hiding in plain sight in the town where Will’s family owns an abandoned cabin. Will even imagines that Anisa is secretly living in the cabin- just waiting for him to find her. Emily insists that they drive to the old cabin to look for clues, but when Emily confesses her Iove for Will, all does not go as expected. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Let Her Be is book #6 in the Amazon Hush Collection, a "collection of six stories, ranging from political mysteries to psychological thrillers, in which deception can be a matter of life and death.” Each piece is very short and can be read independently or together.

I'm sorry, but I just didn't like this book. Not only did I find the first half slow and boring, but the main character (Will) had no redeeming qualities either. The story is narrated by him too, which is another thing I didn't like. Not to mention that it's mostly filled with introspection and not enough actual dialogue.
I will admit that it kept me guessing and included a couple of twists which is ultimately what saved me from hating it. On the other hand it was really a depressing and sad piece of work and the end wasn't at all satisfying. I dislike when authors leave readers to make their own assumptions which is the case here.
Even now the next morning, I still have a few lingering questions and am a bit confused. And for a story that only took 60-90 minutes to complete it seemed to take forever too. Overall I can't say I'm impressed with Ms. Unger's short stories. Maybe her full length novels are better but I don't think her writing is for me.
Length: The story ended at the 97% mark on page 50, and location 899.
