About this deal

The amount of courage and character she showed during the challenging experiences will make us love her more.

Sharply written with twists and turns, it will please fans of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, or Luckiest Girl Alive.Someone once mooted the theory that Hanna felt too guilty to have a boyfriend because her little sister would never have one.

Ten years after her teenage daughter went missing, a mother begins a new relationship only to discover she can't truly move on until she answers lingering questions about the past. Populated with fantastic characters, this was a fascinating and moving story about obsession, loss, and family. 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.So when she meets an unexpectedly charming man in a café, no one is more surprised than Laurel at how quickly their flirtation develops into something deeper. I would listen to a friend's concerns, regardless if she believed in Mother Nature or the Great Pumpkin. He makes mention about what a schlub he is and how incredible Laurel is just for giving him the time of day. Jewell’s books last year and to say I’m now a fan would be as big of an understatement as ever written. I intended to spend 90 minutes reading on a weekend afternoon to have a relaxing break from some outside chores.

I received a ARC of this novel from the publisher through Edelweiss, thank you, will post to public media upon publication. In the wake of Ellie's disappearance ten years ago, her mother and father have split and the family has been torn apart by losing its "golden child". The mounting evidence of ever more and ever worse skulduggery will pull Tempe deeper and deeper down what even she sees as a rabbit hole before she confronts a ringleader implicated in “Drugs. Lisa Jewell’s “Then She Was Gone” is a phenomenal psychological thriller that kept me enthralled throughout. Meanwhile the family has fallen apart - a divorce for Paul and Laurel and sort of an estrangement between their children.Missing persons tropes are common in mysteries and thrillers, and the theme has been written and explored in many predictable ways, but also in many clever, even shocking ways.

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. maybe i wont be playing the whole ‘predict what happens based on the synopsis only’ game because it turns out i only got 1 out of 4 guesses right and its not a good look for my ego. Then unusual coincidences related to Laurel’s new boyfriend and also to Ellie begin occurring and things start to get unsettling for Laurel. As you may imagine Laurel is devastated, barely holding up but one day she meets Floyd at a cafe, sharing a carrot cake and the charming, mysterious, charismatic mathematician blows her mind. Told from multiple points of view, alternating between ‘then’ and ‘now’, I was enthralled as everything was revealed.The book alternates between "Then" and "Now" to tell the story of what happened to Ellie, who kidnapped and hurt her, what the new love interest for Ellie's mother, Laurel, has to say transpired over all the years, and where things really fell apart. She's the only one I can sorta, kinda believe because children are amazingly resilient and her biology may have something to do with it. As a reader I pretty guessed what had happened to Ellie, in fact the sisters I was reading this with also had the same thoughts.
