Fiction – Thriller

Goodreads Summary

When Clara’s boyfriend, Luke, disappears, everyone believes that he’s left her, but Clara thinks she knows the truth. Recent evidence suggests that Luke had a stalker, and Clara worries that he’s been kidnapped. Then Luke’s older sister, Emma, who vanished twenty years ago, suddenly reappears. Emma wants to help Clara with her search for Luke, but she refuses to talk about what happened—even though it nearly destroyed her family when she vanished. And the deeper Clara digs into Luke’s mysterious disappearance, the more convinced she is that the two incidents are connected.


This book wowed me! It is definitely one of the better psychological thrillers I have read. Each chapter, for the most part, switches between two completely different story lines that are equally fascinating. I kept thinking to myself, “What is going on? How are these going to come together?!” My curiosity kept me reading since I could not wait to figure out how everything would get resolved. This book is filled with twists and turns that will keep you guessing to the very end. I had multiple theories, and none of them were accurate. By the end of it, I was just so impressed with how the author came up with such an incredible story line that fit so well together but was still far from obvious. This is a quick read, and I would suggest you pick it up ASAP!
