    Do NOT Miss This One

    With 11-and-a-half months to go in 2018 as I write my review, it's too early to say this - but say it I will: If you have but one book to read this year, make it this one. Yep, it's that good. It grabbed my mind in the beginning and didn't let go till the end (and beyond - the next day as I finish my review I still feel like I've been run over with a Mack truck). The story begins in 1996, when a teenage girl named Claire is playing with friends and her little sister Eleanor ("Lenni") on the beach near the family's Trevellin Farm on coastal England. Striving to be independent, as young children do, Lenni begs Claire to let her go off on her own to buy an ice cream cone. Caught up in the thrill of the waves, Claire reluctantly hands her some money and warns her to hurry. But somewhere between there and back, Lenni disappears - and remains missing in 2017, when the here-and-now story kicks in. Claire still lives in a cottage on the farm near her parents, but now she's a successful realtor, married to a neurosurgeon and has two children. Her father, Patrick, has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and is declining rapidly, forcing her mother to seriously consider selling the property (to which Patrick is vehemently opposed). In an effort to help boost his failing memory, Claire decides to host a reunion of the old gang of kids who used to play together. The group includes Claire's best friend Maggie, would-be restaurateur Nick and her brother, Jason, who's married to a very pregnant-with-twins wife. The idea is met with enthusiasm by all, except perhaps Claire's husband Callum, but take nothing at face value: All the guests are bringing baggage beyond the cases that carry their clothing. Maggie has made a career out of hopping from one boyfriend to another, turning her daughter, Rain, into the teenager from hell. Nick, who was Claire's first love, is struggling with serious family issues as well as his upcoming restaurant launch. Jason is looking forward to fatherhood, but not to seeing his own father - from whom he's been estranged for years. That issue, Claire hopes, will be resolved at the get-together. Interspersed throughout the book are chapters that show flashes of the past, each adding clues as to what the future may hold. But then, the unthinkable happens: Another girl goes missing. From that point on, there's never a dull moment (although in all honesty, I didn't notice any dull moments before she disappeared, either). The tension - and surprises - just keep mounting all the way to the jaw-dropping end. Whew! Now that I can breathe again, I guess all that's left is to highly recommend this book and thank the publisher for allowing me to read it in exchange for an honest review. Did I say whew?

    The Reunion

    I liked a lot about this book but it was somewhat let down by a very ordinary beginning and middle and a very busy end. The overload of information and the final piece of the puzzle found was a bit much for my tired brain. I had to read the last bit twice to get a handle on the ending.

    A suspenseful thriller

    What a goosebumpy roller coaster ride of a book! A sister lost 20 years ago + a child lost now = a deja vu story. Samantha Hayes has done a fabulous job in writing a book which is gripping from the first page. Who is good? Who is bad? Who is lying? Who is telling the truth? What happened 20 years ago? What happened now? Why did the girls disappear? The only factor that was common to the two girls disappearing were the characters. Mom Shona and dad Patrick, children Claire, Jason, Lenni, friends Maggie and Nick. And there are enough lies and secrets circulating amongst them all, including the spouses and children. The reunion which was organised to help their father Patrick’s memories get a boost-up, as he was diagnosed with Alzheimers’, but it turned out to be a re-hash of a missing girl. Samantha has maintained the tension throughout the story, drawing the reader to keep guessing about the perpetrator. The story starts slightly slow, allowing the characters to develop, making the readers complaint, the adrenaline slowing dripping into their blood stream. And then it suddenly picks up pace for the grand finale, the answers rushing up to the reader faster and faster, making the atmosphere breathless, till it feels too rushed in time and space, and some parts were left unanswered, though they were not the most important bits. A good mystery, entertaining in its unfolding, percolating in the middle, and dramatic in its ending. A reunion held for keeping the memories afar turned out to be a reunion of skeletons jumping out from the closets.
