Publisher's Summary

When teenage best friends, Callie and Avery are kidnapped from a tent in their front yard in a sleepy Midwestern town, the entire population of Newell is rocked to its core. But when one of the girls returns 24 hours later, her body covered in injuries and zero recollection of what happened, the search is on for the girl who didn’t get away. Callie is still missing, her whereabouts unknown. And as Avery attempts to piece together an impossible puzzle, she stumbles upon the terrifying realization that her best friend was harboring a dark secret, and she may have paid the ultimate price for it.

Suspenseful and intriguing!

Great psychological thriller. Impossible to put down this book! The characters are intriguing. All the characters are well described, well developed and intriguing. The storyline is fast-paced, suspenseful and captivating, filled with many twists and turns. I like the POV of Henry and Avery. The ending is breathtaking and spectacular. Marin Montgomery rapidly becomes one of my favorite authors. The narration was really well done. Grace Panuescu and D. Michael Hope have both a great voice, well paced and easy to understand. I really enjoyed my listening. I'm looking forward for more books written by this author and narrated by these narrators.

SUSPENSE-FILLED PUZZLE

THE GIRL THAT GOT AWAY is a stand-alone, psychological thriller.

I enjoyed the suspense of this story and the way that each chapter ended in a mini-cliffhanger before switching to the other point of view. I liked the clever twist that was Henry/Alex. I sat in that car listening to the last two chapters instead of going into work. The final twist had me literally applauding.

I wondered why it needed to be set twenty years ago (1997). There is one reference to a pager, but that could easily be changed to a text message. This could happen anywhere and at any time.

This is the first book I have read from Marin Montgomery. In my opinion, she did an excellent job of providing suspense, puzzle, fear, and description.

Narration: I really enjoyed the dual narration style of Grace Paunescu & D. Michael Hope. They both did an excellent job.

Note: While I received this book as a gifted audiobook copy via Audiobook Boom, my opinions are my own and are given freely.

Kidnapped

The Girl That Got Away is the story of two fourteen year old girls who are taken from their sleepover in the front yard. One, Avery, is found and the other , Callie, is still missing. The story is told from two characters alternating perspectives and narrated by Grace Paunescu and D. Michael Hope. As Avery’s memories return the mystery starts to unravel. There are numerous twists to the story, but the end was mostly predicable. I enjoyed the double narration and would listen to more of the authors books.

A+ Mystery

I do love a good mystery and this one was a really juicy one! 'The Girl That Got Away' follows two young women who are kidnapped while camping in a suburban front yard. Marin Montgomery spins a complicated tale that requires much unfolding to discover the truth. It also successfully pulls off some dramatic twists and I didn't see coming (a rare feat!) and culminates in a satisfying ending. Grace Pauescu and D, Michael Hope both deliver a good narrative performance that will keep you listening. If you like a mystery/thriller, then this one is for you!

Great mystery and suspense!

Absolutely loved this one! Great narration, fantastic storyline. Goes back and forth between two characters and two periods in time as the story unravels, giving you bits and pieces at a time. I had a pretty good idea of what was going on about halfway through, but it does twist and turn a lot. No spoilers! Listened to this one on a very long drive and it was perfect for the road trip. Definitely recommend! *** This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.***

Worth the read

I enjoyed everything about this book. It is always fun to read a book where you are offered a number of possible criminals. The performance was excellent and added to the enjoyment of the book. The story was excellent except for one thing. The thoughts attributed to the 14 year old girl were way too mature for a 14 year old. Most 14 year olds are more mature than their age but not this mature of a thought process. I think 16 years old would be much more accurate and believable.

really good!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I don't always enjoy books narrated by more than one person. For me, the transition between them is often jarring and distracting. For this book, though, it really worked well as this is the same story told from two different perspectives. There is plenty of tension built up as the story progresses and a few plot twists as well. All in all, I thought this was a well written and narrated book that is worth your time.

Great storyline, great narration!

I really enjoyed the tension build up and the suspense as we went through the story. This story is such a sad, but common story. I’m really thankful most don’t go like this one did. There were a few times I screamed at Avery and I really wondered where her parents were. I know that I wouldn’t be leaving mine alone after such an ordeal.

The narrators, Grace Paunescu and D. Michael Hope were really great. Henry gave me chills with his voice. I totally felt for Avery. They did a great job and seemed to have complimented each other.
