Too long, contrived and predictable, but it was on sale. On the plus side, I did finish.
Then She Was Gone
by Lisa Jewell
read by Helen Duff
rating: B / suspense
Ellie Mack was 15 years old when she disappeared. The prologue shows her as a high school student and the main plot jumps to 10 years later with a short flashback section about an incident at 5 years when her bones were found. But there is no evidence of who, when, where, why, – nothing.
The main character is Ellie’s mother Lauren Mack who has been tormented by this loss and has lost her husband and 2 older children as a result of her emotional collapse .
Now Lauren is recovering and dating a man with a young girl and Lauren’s remaining family is suspicious of him, as is the reader. But more is slowly revealed with moderately interesting but broadly predictable twists..
