    Suspense, mystery, more

    Okay, it’s true, I’m a romance junkie. But every once in a while I get the hankering for something a little different. Although, in order to gain my attention, it has to really pull me in with the blurb. This book did that and being this is written by a new author I was a bit worried that I might have fallen for a great blurb and not much else. I’m happy to say that is not the case. While this plot is about a missing child, it’s really about so much more. It’s about friendships, marriage, parenthood and all the not so pretty things behind these labels. I was definitely caught up in the case of the missing child, but I also found myself deeply moved by the layers that were revealed with these characters’ friendships. I’m ashamed to say that I actually saw myself in some of them. You know, that friendship that is just on the surface and has no real value. But you don’t really ever acknowledge that fact. I began to question myself about how I would react to this situation should one of my “friends” be found in the center of such an event. I’d like to think I’d be the resilient one, but even in this story that friend isn’t perfect…and that was when I realized how true to the human condition this story really was. Plot wise, this story kept me hopping. I never knew what was going to happen and each twist and turn was a complete surprise, with the exception of one element that seems pretty obvious almost from the beginning. However, that one non-hidden suspicion grew to be much more than I had anticipated, so even there I was taken by surprise. The switch between past and present, first and third person, was a bit confusing and oftentimes I felt myself pulled out of the story as I had to reevaluate when and whose point of view I was in. This doesn’t end in an “everyone lived happily ever after” but more of a “this is the best life can give us and we’re going to hold onto it for all it’s worth”. And despite my love of romances that guarantee a HEA with every read, I was totally okay with it. I would definitely recommend this read to anyone who likes a suspenseful mysteries that also have a deeper message beneath its surface. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book provided by NetGalley and Gallery/Pocket Books . All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Twists and turns

    I really enjoyed this novel and was very pleasantly surprised after having stumbled upon it. The way it started seemed fairly formulaic although the characters were interesting, but then it took a wholly unexpected turn that I never saw coming and leapt forwards from there with great twists which kept the plot moving and the characters interesting. The past/present and first person narrative shifts were well done. I would recommend this book.

    Gaslighting extraordinaire!

    This was a psychological thriller that really dug deeply into the emotional aspects; gaslighting, confusion and mind games had someone doubting their sanity. Highly recommend this devious plotting. It’s a wicked read!
