Upon finishing one chapter it was easy to read the next and then just one more chapter and before I knew it I was finished! Laurel usually doesn't take chances, but after the last clue in Ellie's case was discovered, Laurel is ready to put her life back on track. I intended to spend 90 minutes reading on a weekend afternoon to have a relaxing break from some outside chores.

Populated with fantastic characters, this was a fascinating and moving story about obsession, loss, and family. Even though unconditional love is one of the ideal forms of love, it will be practical only with ideal individuals. Told from multiple points of view, alternating between ‘then’ and ‘now’, I was enthralled as everything was revealed.The writing is strong, but it's disappointing when you figure out all the major reveals in the first few chapters and even get the reasons behind them.

A very suspenseful story, with an underlying sense of creepiness, and a novel way of telling a story. And even though I had an inkling about where this was going, it didn't diminish my pleasure in this read at all. I figured the "mystery" out but that did not spoil the book for me, as I kept turning the pages to see who else was going to figure the book out. Lisa is a number one New York Times and Sunday Times author who has sold over ten million books worldwide and been published in over twenty-five languages. He makes mention about what a schlub he is and how incredible Laurel is just for giving him the time of day.I knew Lisa Jewell will never disappoint me and I’m happy to finally read this moving, exciting, riveting page turner.

I always have a hard time finding thrillers that are shocking but don’t rely on shock value, if that makes sense.

It's been ten years since her daughter disappeared, seven years since her marriage ended, and only months since the last clue in Ellie's case was unearthed. latest thriller moves at a brisk pace even as she plays with narrative structure: The book is split into three sections, including a first one which alternates chapters between the time of Ellie’s disappearance and the present and a second section that begins as Laurel and Floyd meet. Brooks presents a case for making room for Bigfoot in the world while peppering his narrative with timely social criticism about bad behavior on the human side of the conflict: The explosion of Rainier might have been better forecast had the president not slashed the budget of the U.Any "Author Information" displayed below reflects the author's biography at the time this particular book was published. We are—well, ask Bigfoot, as Brooks does in this delightful yarn, following on his bestseller World War Z (2006). This is the second Lisa Jewell novel I’ve read (I Found You, being the first) and I can’t wait to read more of Ms. Maybe the narrator’s voice just irritated me, especially when she was channeling Poppy’s voice or when her attempt at Floyd’s voice changed with each chapter. After ten long years, her mother, Laurel Mack, finds her new love, Floyd, after divorcing her first husband.
