Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Heather Gudenkauf returns with a chilling pause resister about a woman chasing clues into a decades-old mystery that could have shattering repercussions.

Sarah Quinlan's husband, Jack, has been haunted for decades by the untimely death of his mother when he was just a teenager, her body found in the cellar of their family farm, the circumstances a mystery. The case rocked the small farm town of Penny Gate, Iowa, where Jack was raised, and for years Jack avoided returning home. But when his beloved aunt Julia is in an accident, Jack and Sarah are forced to confront the past that they have long evaded.

Upon arriving in Penny Gate, Sarah and Jack are welcomed by the family Jack left behind all those years ago - barely a trace of the wounds that had once devastated them all. But as facts about Julia's accident begin to surface, Sarah realizes that nothing about the Quinlans is what it seems. Caught in a flurry of unanswered questions, Sarah dives deep into the puzzling rabbit hole of Jack's past. But the farther in she climbs, the harder it is for her to get out. And soon she is faced with a deadly truth she may not be prepared for.

    "I can't believe this is by Heather Gudenkauf"

    I've listened to several of Heather Gudenkauf's books and this one did not seem like the same author. The protagonist was annoying. The characters were not well developed. It was lousy and I am glad this was not the first book I chose by the author. The narrator was also terrible. She had a tone that went back and forth between uppity and irritated. Her voice always sounded a little pissed. I'll never listen to a book she narrated again. I will try more books by Gudenkauf, but I could not recommend this one.

    "Easy listen, but cliche & too tidy at the end"

    Wanted to like it, her first book is one of my favorites, but she is not a master storyteller.

    "narrator"

    the narrator sounded like a robot when not speaking dialog, and her male voices were laughable making it difficult to take the story seriously. fail.

    "an excellent Gudenkauf"

    Iowa author Heather Gudenkauf has written a good, tight 'whodunit' thriller. I don't often get scared listening to books but I was thinking 'don't go down into the basement' at the end of this one.

    It's a bit hard to think that a small town in Iowa, one of which I'm from, can have a murder mystery like this but they do happen. But in reading the summary of the book beforehand and with a title of 'Missing Pieces' you know there are long held secrets that will come out as the mystery unfolds. It only takes the first few chapters before you start thinking to yourself who might have done it? Before the book is finished you really think that almost everyone central to the story could have been involved.

    I know my small hometown has lots of secrets so it really isn't surmising that this fictional town has some really good ones. A lot of nuances of being from a small farming community come out in this book as well, a part which I enjoyed.

    Give this book a try, you won't be disappointed.
