Then She Was Gone

She was fifteen, her mother's golden girl. She had her whole life ahead of her. And then, in the blink of an eye, Ellie was gone.

It’s been ten years since Ellie disappeared, but Laurel has never given up hope of finding her daughter.

And then one day a charming and charismatic stranger called Floyd walks into a café and sweeps Laurel off her feet.

Before too long she’s staying the night at this house and being introduced to his nine year old daughter.

Poppy is precocious and pretty - and meeting her completely takes Laurel's breath away.

Because Poppy is the spitting image of Ellie when she was that age. And now all those unanswered questions that have haunted Laurel come flooding back.

What happened to Ellie? Where did she go?

Who still has secrets to hide?

Then She Was Gone is a very great mystery read. I love the style in which it was written. Past and present and even from several different characters perspectives. There weren't many twists and turns and I wasn't left guessing often but I actually didn't find it predictable. I was a bit surprised several times at different outcomes but not shocked if that makes sense. I'm glad Laurel kept looking for answers. It didn't end how I thought it would but I loved it nonetheless. This is one of those books you just don't want to put down &I absolutely recommend this book!
