The Missing Sadly, I wasn t super impressed with this book I thought it had great potential, but in the end I was left feeling highly underwhelmed The writing was fine, however, the characters were so unlikable Not unlikeable in that way where you still love them and kind of question yourself for doing so They were just boring and flat The story really fell short for me too It just wasn t blowing me away at any point This one wasn t for me. ARC provided by NetGalley via the publisher in exchange for an honest review This book is told from the perspective of Samantha now then and Frances Samantha is the mother of Edie who went missing age 15 and was never heard of again This happened 20 years ago and Frances is thrown into the middle of this decades old story by her own curiosity after seeing a photo of her husband with Edie as a teenager.The problem with this story is that Edie wasn t the type of child that was missed when she disappeared, in short, Edie was no angel This, for me, is what makes the book stand out The story of a forgotten bad girl , the media that painted her as a runaway and the mother unsure of how to feel when the daughter who scared her goes Good book, would certainly make me keep an eye out for this author in the future This book was received for free via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review The Missing is a novel about three women one, a young woman that went missing The second, a mother that never stopped looking for her The third, a woman facing marital problems who inexplicably finds herself tied to this mystery One questions remains at the forefront throughout this work what really happened to Edie Hudson I really enjoyed this book The mystery definitely kept me hooked, and I found the narrative style really easy to get into Told in first person, it s easy to feel sucked into the characters point of view The writing style as well I found to be beautiful, as I m definitely a fan of a flowery style of writing I can see people as finding the start of the novel very slow, as much of it is building up your understanding of the characters and their circumstances A lot of attention is given to Samantha, Edie s mother, and her emotional state throughout the events of the novel While I understand that her state of mind is hugely important throughout the novel, I do find that parts of it suffered with pacing due to it.The characters were interesting, although I wish Frances had had a bit of that same care given to her Her motivations were understandable on surface level, but her character just felt a lot lighter in comparison to Samantha Beyond the two main characters, and one character which I won t get into due to spoilers, many of the side characters feel one dimensional As there isn t a huge focus on those characters, I find that it doesn t detract from the story much.Overall, I found the book to be a really enjoyable read, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in the mystery thriller genre After reading this book, I m definitely interested in checking out the other novel she has to offer, and I m looking forward to seeing what the author does in the future The Missing is a story told in alternating perspectives by two women who s lives are unknowingly intertwined Samantha tells her story then and now, when her daughter went missing and 20 years later as she continues to search for answers Frances lets her curiosity get the better of her when she finds out about a missing girl from her husbands past In her search for answers, she encounters Samantha and the two become an unlikely pair The final 1 3 of the book is filled with shocking twists that will keep you on the edge of your seat. This is the second book I ve read by this author, and it s another great one Told from alternating narratives of Samantha and Frances, it involves Edie, Samantha s daughter who disappeared 15 years ago, and Frances, who discovers this mystery and the surprising connection it has to her own life She never heard about the missing girl before, due in part to the police and media writing Edie off as just another troubled runaway Sure, she was a typical rebellious teenager, so perhaps, but that doesn t mean her disappearance doesn t matter And it soon begins to matter to Frances, also, when she discovers that her husband, William, was involved with Edie as a teen Frances and William revisit his childhood home due to his mother suffering a terrible fall while in the care of William s brother, Alex It is while she looks through some old photos that Frances learns about Edie and how she disappeared one day in a graveyard and has never been found She soon begins digging into the mystery, and meets Samantha along the way Still heartbroken over her Edie s disappearance, she and Frances join together to discover the truth, whatever the cost But will that only cause these women to lose along the way I read this all in one sitting I couldn t help it, I was unable to put it down So many suspicious characters and motives, I just couldn t rest until I knew what really happened to Edie It is definitely a mystery you will want to solve and you won t be disappointed First, I would like to thank Netgalley for allowing me to read and review this book.The books description hooked me right from the beginning A missing girl, a mom who never stops looking, and a wife who doesn t trust those around her What s not to be intrigued about However, after reading the entire book, I noticed how the description did not quite match up to the book I mean, of course, it was about the same book and gave a short snippet of what was to come, but the story was much, much than just a missing girl and her mom Which is why I absolutely could not put this book down I read it in one day The story is told from basically three different perspectives, with the chapters switching off Two perspectives are from the same person, Samantha, but they are separated into Then and Now Samantha is the mother of Edie, the girl who went missing when she was fifteen The switch between time periods let the reader go back in time to see just how twisted and heartbreaking the disappearance was Then, the other perspective comes from Frances, a woman who is have marital troubles, but finds herself in the middle of a huge mystery In the beginning, as I was reading, I kept wondering how these two women were connected Why were their stories being told together Holy cow I was not disappointed, and you won t be either if you see yourself reading this book.The author s writing and voice are very strong throughout the book You can easily tell which character s perspective you are reading and the text flows nicely The only part I would want of, is background information for Samantha and Frances I would just like to know a little about their lives and what makes them tick The characters in this book are flawed I don t say this based on the writing, I say this about their choices throughout the book, but I find that some of the best characters are always flawed in some way Those flaws make them interesting and make us want to know.If you are looking for a mystery thriller that you wont be able to put down, then you will love this book I was up until 3 in the morning finishing this, I COULD NOT STOP Do

what truly happened to Edie and I wanted to know why I liked that this story was told in first person because it was easy to understand what the characters were experiencing throughout the book The ending of this book was not as predictable as some thrillers tend to be in my opinion, which really sets it apart from other stories Another thing I really enjoyed about this book was the true aspect of how missing people can be overlooked depending on their backgrounds Edie wasn t a good girl and her disappearance didn t get attention by the media the way that good girls do This book was captivating, touching, and thrilling I m looking forward to reading titles by this author.
