Description

Fifteen-year-old Ellie Mack was the perfect daughter. She was beloved by her parents, friends, and teachers. She and her boyfriend made a teenage golden couple. She was days away from an idyllic 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 10 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 cafe, she is surprised at how quickly their flirtation develops into something deeper. Before she knows it, she's meeting Floyd's daughters - and his youngest, Poppy, takes her breath away. Looking at her is like looking at Ellie. And now the unanswered questions she has tried so hard to put to rest haunt her anew...as well as some new ones about Floyd and Poppy....

Twisted and addicting

This story is great! Just when you think you have it all figured out you find out you don’t. You can’t stop listening as it twists and turns over and over BUT the voices of the oldest daughter, SJ and the grandmother are so epically awful it’s almost painful. You really have to focus hard to look past it and still love those characters. The grandmother especially! However, I would suggest this book to anyone who loves to sit on the edge of their seat!!

Good story. Not my favourite performance.

Very compelling story. You are drawn into the mystery and can relate to Laurel Mack. Definitely worth the listen. The performance wasn't my favourite. The narrator changes voice very often to differentiate the character perspectives. This wasn't for me and came off as annoying.

Interesting but narration was terrible.

The story dragged along at first, but picked up towards the end. I almost didn't listen to the entire book because the narration was ridiculous and excruciating to endure. Suggest reading yourself.

Annoying Narrator Voice, but Great Story

This has been one of my favorite books I've listed to this year. Wonderfully written, with strong character development, and a captivating, morbidly exciting plot. It's a must read, and a must listen if you can get past the narrator performance, which drove me insane. Her voice was SO annoying. The strong British accent paired with the most annoying rendition of voices she had for each character made it painful to listen to. Especially her voice of Noel, Ruby, and Hannah.

Predictable but a page turner

Easy listen, wonderful performance. predictable fantastical type story but very well written with excellent character development. I especially enjoyed the honest portrayal of the "survivor complex" with the brother and sister left after Ellie and their relationship with their disinterested mother and how that developed over the course of the novel.

Decent story but annoying narration

There were some outlandish things within the story, but overall very captivating.

However the narration, especially that of Floyd and Hannah, were awful, which made it very difficult to continue to listen to.

Decent time killer

I kept listening as the reviews were overall positive. The "twists" were very predictable. I wouldn't recommend to someone looking for something new and innovative, but if you need a time killer while driving it would fill that need.

SO GOOD

I couldn't get enough of this book. I drove around on my lunch hour, wasting gas, just to listen. I finished it in a week and it usually takes me a month to get through a book because I only listen while commuting. If you're a fan of suspense/thrillers, you will enjoy this book.

Love all Lisa Jewell's books.

As always her characters, plots and family dynamics are compelling. This one was a little darker than some of her books, and the main characters a little less quirky but still a book I couldn't put down. I wish I could get all of her books, don't quite understand the publishing rules that keep Audible from being able to offer all of her books. The narrator was excellent as always. I find a good narrator is crucial and this narrator is terrific. Highly recommend!

WOW, great book

I just finished listening to this book, and I am sad for it to be over. I found it to be very captivating. Yes, there is some dark content, but that's what psychological thrillers usually are, right?
I loved the narrator, and I got caught up in the story right away feeling like I was actually there with the family.
It was an emotional book with a satisfying ending. I hate when they end with a big question.
I don't want to leave any spoilers, but this book had great characters to hate, as well as to relate to. I loved how the book really went into detail with the characters feelings and emotional states.
5 stars from me.

Not a bad read

I found that I predicted the ending to this book fairly early on but really did enjoy the book. The narrator is excellent. It’s a somber thriller that I think most will find a good read ( or “listen”).

A non stop listen

I loved the narrator. She made the story, already so poignant, even more stunning. Great, right to the end.

Truly a page-turner

The novel initially involves a middle aged woman who seems to be overcoming her depression after meeting and becoming involved with a nice, compatible man. Good reading, but not exactly a mystery/thriller. Then comes a revelation/warning so ominous and creepy that I didn't want to stop listening--even at 1:00 AM. The conclusion did not quite meet my expectations of menace, but the story certainly kept me involved.

Bleak, dark, but done exceptionally well

If you've got the heart for it...this is a great read, just very sad and dark. Even the silver lining is a bit bittersweet and tarnished by the immensity of what is lost in the years. This is the first book I've read by Lisa Jewell and I was impressed by the very good writing and sophisticated set up of the story. The delivery, in the beginning, was achingly slow, but I realized as the pace picked up later that that beginning with the barely perceptible ticks here and there was the author's stratagem -- like a comfortable drift downstream until the first rapid upends your tranquil ride and submerges you in a truly horrible world of tumult and heartbreak. It's hard to throw an avid reader off track, but I have to give Jewell props for keeping me guessing.

I used to read some by the author K. Slaughter, until I had professionals in my field point out the dangerously gratuitous violence against women in that author's books. Whatever floats your boats -- (I won't go into details, but we worked with incarcerated sex offenders and were unanimously concerned with a particular book of KS. We all chose to quit reading KS.) While not the same subject AT ALL so gruesomely detailed in KS works, I couldn't help but compare the author's choices. Jewell was able to write about a sad and frightening situation involving a crime against a child and capture the horrors without the flagrant description, instead relying on her talent for writing and her trust in the reader to fill the details, instead of gore and salacious details. Well paced unfolding of a haunting thriller.
