My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Out in paperback today!
I’m not going to lie, the cover of this book didn’t really speak to me. I’m (right or wrong) really big on book covers, but I received this book from the publisher and was more than happy to read and review. Let me say that I’m so glad I didn’t let the cover deter me because the story inside is fabulous.
A thriller about a 3-year old girl who goes missing from her home in the night is the not the most unique concept but the structure is what made this book really special. Not many thrillers tell you the culprit from the beginning of the story, but right off the bat the reader know who abducted the small girl. And the story then tells how the investigation unfolds, the parents are suspects (because they always are), the abductor’s actions to cover her tracks.
I did think I had figured out all the plot points and wasn’t really surprised by anything… until the last 30ish pages where a few things really came at me out of nowhere. I was pleasantly surprised and satisfied by the twists at the end.
If you’re like me and feel underwhelmed by the cover, don’t let it stop you from reading the book because you’ll really be missing out. I would definitely recommend this one to thriller lovers looking for something with a different structure.
