About this book: Confronted by a restraining order and the threat of a lawsuit, failed journalist Leah Stevens needs to get out of Boston when she runs into an old friend, Emmy Grey, who has just left a troubled relationship. Emmy proposes they move to rural Pennsylvania, where Leah can get a teaching position and both women can start again. But their new start is threatened when a woman with an eerie resemblance to Leah is assaulted by the lake, and Emmy disappears days later.
Determined to find Emmy, Leah cooperates with Kyle Donovan, a handsome young police officer on the case. As they investigate her friend’s life for clues, Leah begins to wonder: did she ever really know Emmy at all? With no friends, family, or a digital footprint, the police begin to suspect that there is no Emmy Grey. Soon Leah’s credibility is at stake, and she is forced to revisit her past: the article that ruined her career. To save herself, Leah must uncover the truth about Emmy Grey—and along the way, confront her old demons, find out who she can really trust, and clear her own name.
Everyone in this rural Pennsylvanian town has something to hide—including Leah herself. How do you uncover the truth when you are busy hiding your own?
4 strong golden stars!
Oh… my goodness… the turmoil I’m in right now!
The thing with this book – I did not know what to expect. I haven’t read All The Missing Girls yet, but I know many of my fellow Goodreaders have been raving about how amazing it was. I got this for a review, and btw I would like to thank NetGalley and Simon & Shuster for this wonderful opportunity. But what I’m trying to say is that I had no idea what I was going in to.
This book is said to be a second one in the All The Missing Girls series, however I might say it can be read as a stand-alone.
So let’s review what I think about this book.
It is very difficult for me to tell you all how I feel exactly. It’s funny because I enjoyed this book very much and yet I find myself speechless. Maybe it is because it’s all still so fresh. The mystery, the drama, and the unknown.
It’s about this girl – woman, Leah, who I can really relate to. She’s journalist by heart and she is willing to sacrifice all for the truth. I’m no journalist myself, but I know the feeling, when you get into trouble for persisting, because you stick to what you believe. And in this book the author is talking about the essence of right and wrong actions… What are we willing to do for the truth to come out or keep it hidden?
Well and also on top of it all there’s a great mystery that culminates at the end – and let me tell you, I did not see that coming. So I highly recommend this book to all.
My next stop is to read the first book, because I’m hooked!
