Then She Was Gone Reviews
This is the third Lisa Jewell thriller that I have read and she has penned another winner! After finishing this book I really had to wait a few days to sort of “SETTLE ME DOWN” as this mystery touched some very delicate feelings in me, more so than her first two books. Call me a snob but in my experience with thrillers, it has been hard to find many with the combination of great writing, past and present POV’s that flow seamlessly together, and create emotions that well up inside of you and real ...more
Thanks to NetGalley for an advanced ebook in exchange for an honest review.
Then She Was Gone was a heart stopping, well paced read, that kept me on the edge of my seat. This was my third Lisa Jewell story and it was definitely my favorite. I really don't want to give away too much from the book because the less you know the more enjoyable your read will be.
Then She Was Gone has some fantastic characters (Laurel, Ellie, Hanna, Poppy, Noelle, Floyd) and the amount of emotions that I felt over ...more
Heart-breaking, dark, disturbing, and fairly predictable!
As the story of Ellie’s disappearance starts unfolding, it swiftly takes a sinister turn and it all goes downhill from there. The plot is very well-written and most of the characters are quite fascinating, unlikeable but fascinating!
I thoroughly enjoyed the beginning of the story as the mystery was building up but quickly lost interest as the whole thing became rather predictable.
The ending was incredibly touching, thus adding more flavour ...more
Edgy, Dark and Addictive
This turned out to be quite a stunner. I’ve read lots of psychological thrillers and this one caught me off guard. Much more than your typical missing daughter plot. Scattered with hints of some shocking revelations to come.
This is my fourth Lisa Jewell novel and I’m a huge fan. I love her writing style and how she keeps me totally absorbed in the story line. The more I read, the more invested I became and started to care about some of the key characters. Told in multiple ...more
As a big fan of Lisa Jewell, I was excited to hear about Then She Was Gone, which follows her turn to a rather darker spin she has been successfully using in her past few books. The story follows Laurel Mack, though it is really told from multiple POVs (of which I tend to be a big fan). Her teenage daughter went missing ten years ago, and when she meets a man, Floyd, whose nine-year-old daughter is the image of Laurel's missing child, Ellie, and she understandably cannot let the mystery go. Laur ...more
It's not very often that a book almost reduces me to tears but the ending of this heart strings pulling story was just so heart breakingly sad for a couple of reasons.
Ten years ago Laurel`s fifteen year old daughter Ellie went to the library to study and never came home,she just completely vanished without a trace.The rest of her family have moved on and are trying to repair their shattered lives but Laurel has never given up hope of finding her daughter.
Then one day Laurel is swept off her feet ...more
Another winner from Lisa Jewell!
Laurel Mack’s smart and beautiful teenage daughter Ellie disappeared 10 years ago. Now divorced and distant from her other two children, Laurel is attempting to move on and begins dating a handsome and kind man. Then unusual coincidences related to Laurel’s new boyfriend and also to Ellie begin occurring and things start to get unsettling for Laurel. I don’t want to say more because part of the excitement of the book is discovering how the various plot lines inter ...more
This novel is creepy—in a good way. Fifteen-year-old Ellie disappears on her way to the library one day. Ultimately, since police can’t find anything, they suspect she’s a runaway despite the fact she had a boyfriend she loved and was looking forward to taking the exams she’d been studying hard for.
When we meet up with her mother Laurel ten years later, Laurel’s relationships with her other daughter, her son, and her now-ex-husband have all suffered greatly because they’d never found a body or a ...more
