“An acutely observed family drama with bone-chilling suspense.” —People

“Jewell teases out her twisty plot at just the right pace, leaving readers on the edge of their seats. Her multilayered characters are sheer perfection, and even the most astute thriller reader won’t see where everything is going until the final threads are unknotted.” —Booklist, starred review

“Sharply written with twists and turns, Jewell’s latest will please fans of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, or Luckiest Girl Alive." —Library Journal

Ellie Mack was the perfect daughter. She was fifteen, the youngest of three. She was beloved by her parents, friends, and teachers. She and her boyfriend made a teenaged golden couple. She was days away from an idyllic post-exams 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 ten 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 café, no one is more surprised than Laurel at how quickly their flirtation develops into something deeper. Before she knows it, she’s meeting Floyd’s daughters—and his youngest, Poppy, takes Laurel’s breath away.

Because looking at Poppy is like looking at Ellie. And now, the unanswered questions she’s tried so hard to put to rest begin to haunt Laurel anew. Where did Ellie go? Did she really run away from home, as the police have long suspected, or was there a more sinister reason for her disappearance? Who is Floyd, really? And why does his daughter remind Laurel so viscerally of her own missing girl?

    Really enjoyed this book. I have been reading a great deal of fiction best sellers recently and this has been my favorite.
  • Addicting and Full of Suspense

    By *Darkangel*
    This whole book from start to finish just pulls you right into this poor girl, Ellie Macks Life. Her story is told through the eyes of many different perspectives. You wont know what will happen next until you keep reading and it leaves you with questions about what actually happened until the end. I thought that it could have had more action in the present moment rather than everything going on in Flashbacks. I was kind of disappointed by how anti-climatic the ending was where the characters are left asking where are we now? Besides that I recommend this read to anyone I know. You will not be able to put the book down.

    I absolutely loved this book. Was hooked right from the beginning and found it very hard to put down. The story definitely kept a steady pace. I do not feel like there were slow points. Just kept building for a nice finish. First book I’ve read by this author and I will definitely be reading her others.
  • So good.

    I very much enjoyed reading of Laurel’s heartbreaking journey and how she comes to find out what really happened to her beloved Ellie. In some ways in the beginning I wasn’t sure of Poppy but loved how everything came together in the end for the best possible ending. This book kept me wanting to know what happens next until I could barely keep my eyes open late at night. Great read.
