Publisher's Summary

Fifteen-year-old Ellie Mack was the perfect daughter. She was beloved by her parents, friends, and teachers. She and her boyfriend made a teenage golden couple. She was days away from an idyllic summer vacation, with her whole life ahead of her. And then she was gone. 

Now her mother, Laurel Mack, is trying to put her life back together. It's been 10 years since her daughter disappeared, seven years since her marriage ended, and only months since the last clue in Ellie's case was unearthed. So when she meets an unexpectedly charming man in a cafe, she is surprised at how quickly their flirtation develops into something deeper. Before she knows it, she's meeting Floyd's daughters - and his youngest, Poppy, takes her breath away. Looking at her is like looking at Ellie. And now the unanswered questions she has tried so hard to put to rest haunt her anew...as well as some new ones about Floyd and Poppy....

Love all Lisa Jewell's books.

As always her characters, plots and family dynamics are compelling. This one was a little darker than some of her books, and the main characters a little less quirky but still a book I couldn't put down. I wish I could get all of her books, don't quite understand the publishing rules that keep Audible from being able to offer all of her books. The narrator was excellent as always. I find a good narrator is crucial and this narrator is terrific. Highly recommend!

SO GOOD

I couldn't get enough of this book. I drove around on my lunch hour, wasting gas, just to listen. I finished it in a week and it usually takes me a month to get through a book because I only listen while commuting. If you're a fan of suspense/thrillers, you will enjoy this book.

WOW, great book

I just finished listening to this book, and I am sad for it to be over. I found it to be very captivating. Yes, there is some dark content, but that's what psychological thrillers usually are, right?
I loved the narrator, and I got caught up in the story right away feeling like I was actually there with the family.
It was an emotional book with a satisfying ending. I hate when they end with a big question.
I don't want to leave any spoilers, but this book had great characters to hate, as well as to relate to. I loved how the book really went into detail with the characters feelings and emotional states.
5 stars from me.

A non stop listen

I loved the narrator. She made the story, already so poignant, even more stunning. Great, right to the end.

Truly a page-turner

The novel initially involves a middle aged woman who seems to be overcoming her depression after meeting and becoming involved with a nice, compatible man. Good reading, but not exactly a mystery/thriller. Then comes a revelation/warning so ominous and creepy that I didn't want to stop listening--even at 1:00 AM. The conclusion did not quite meet my expectations of menace, but the story certainly kept me involved.

Has Its Moments

I really wanted to like this book, but in the end, it's too implausible. As some other reviewers said, there's no real surprises and the clues that seem obvious in the beginning really are clues. No twists await you. There are some stretches of unnecessary, drawn-out details such as the video message. That was ridiculously long and filled with details someone would never ramble on about in that situation. Some characters are more compelling than others. Hannah's voice and character were particularly underdeveloped. The voices are good overall, apart from the American character's voice. There's plenty of dark, creepy material here, but it falls short.

AMAZING STORY!

This was one of the best books I've listened to in a long time. I bought it because the reviews were good and I'm so happy I did. Use your credit on this one... You won't be sorry!
