Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of If You Knew Her comes this harrowing tale of suspense - a story ripped from today’s headlines - of a tight-knit English community rocked by the murder of a mother and the mysterious disappearance of her daughter, and the secrets that lie concealed beneath a carefully constructed facade.

A small town’s beloved family.

A shocking, senseless crime - and the dark secret at the heart of it all.

Everyone in Ashford, Cornwall, knows Meg Nichols and her daughter, Grace. Meg has been selflessly caring for Grace for years, and Grace - smiling and optimistic in spite of her many illnesses - adores her mother. So when Meg is found brutally bludgeoned in her bed and her daughter missing, the community is rocked. Meg had lived in terror of her abusive, unstable ex, convinced that he would return to try and kidnap Grace…as he had once before. Now it appears her fear was justified. 

Jon Katrin, a local journalist, knows he should avoid getting drawn back into this story. The article he wrote about Meg and Grace caused rifts within his marriage and the town. Perhaps if he can help find Grace, he can atone for previous lapses in judgment. The Nichols’ neighbor, Cara - contending with her own guilt over not being a better friend to Grace - becomes an unexpected ally. But in searching for Grace, Jon and Cara uncover anomalies that lead to more and more questions. 

Through multiple viewpoints and diary entries, the truth about Grace emerges, revealing a tragedy more twisted than anyone could have ever imagined....

A Little Predicatable

Grace is Gone was pretty well written, although it got a little tedious in places. The storyline was a little predictable, and the twist was interesting. I was unaware of the true case that the story appears to be based on. But since I know now, I have read up on it. Parents and children are a complicated relationship at best. At worst, it can be really twisted. Such are Grace and Megan.

This is a must read for Mystery Junkies!

So well written, my first read by Emily Elgar, it won’t be my last. I was hooked from beginning to end. Even the annoying narrator couldn’t make me stop listening to this heart capturing story. Read or listen NOW!

Gods story, difficult to determine who was speaking.

This book was an easy listen. The ending was somewhat predictable from the very beginning but it was well written and the slight twist was a nice addition. I had a difficult time telling which character was speaking as the primary male character sounded nearly identical to the secondary female character. The character changes are quick with very little difference in the narrator’s voice.
