**Available now for great summer read. Don’t miss it.
I am an avid reader who spends time searching for that book. You know the one I mean. The one that keeps me up at night, gets inside my head and stays with me long after I’ve finished it. It’s often hard to find it and when I do I want to ring some bell and shout it out to everyone, “I’ve got a winner here!”
All the Missing Girls really was one of those books. When I read the description, I wasn’t sure I even wanted to read it. Of course they said it’s the next Gone Girl. I’ve got to admit I’m tired of hearing that said about a book Seriously, how many next Gone Girls can there be. But, something about it made me read it. I was extremely worried about the idea of reading a story backwards. How could that work and how would I keep track of events like that . Well it worked! Somehow Ms. Miranda pulled it all together. She did such a great job that I contemplated staying home from work just to finish it!
For me, this book met all my criteria for a best seller, must read. It had strong, well developed characters, who I felt like I had an intimate relationship with. I felt what they felt and connected to them on many levels. It had an interesting plot, full of twists and turns. I never really figured it out until the author revealed the full story, which is admirable in a thriller. And, to top it off it had this uniquely developed plot presentation – written chronologically backward.
I’ve read so many books. Many of them I skim through parts to just get back to the meat. This book was one that I savored every word. No skimming at all and I actually dreaded it ending, yet I desperately wanted answers. The story opens with Nic returning home to get her father’s affairs in order. We meet Daniel, her brother and Tyler, her ex. There is a ten year old missing girl case, Nic’s best friend Corrine. Once the stage is set, we are off on a thrilling ride to the unexpected conclusion.
Put this on your must read list for the summer. It’s available to order now. I know this will be on the best seller list and definitely a movie. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy and let me know how you like it.
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for allowing me to read and review a copy of this book.
