This book gets your attention right from the beginning making you want to know more! Did not see the ending!! Just wait for it! Soo good

The beginning was interesting but the ending was so so stupid and convoluted. So many characters making bizarre, illogical decisions. If you recommend this book I imagine you don’t read many mysteries or you’re 14 years old

Really great twists at the end that I never saw coming. Loved it

Very well put together. Had me on my toes.. Definitely recommend!!!

Amazing storyline, huge plot twists!

I’m happy I’m not well enough to go out as I had a very hard time tearing myself from this book.

Didn’t expect the ending. It all came together well at the end and definitely shocked me.

Was a Great read!

I became so invested in the characters that I cried at the end. Good read with a good ending.

Definitely a page turner and an ending I never expected but the end feels too rushed once the secrets are revealed. I would like to have learned more about these characters that I have grown so fond of.

So good! Finally a good book that doesn’t have all the inappropriate sexual stuff… I couldn’t put this one down!

A few plot twists and a decent read. Good not great.

I'm happy, so many people loved it. It was a little much for me. I felt it bounced around a little too much, and being a person with children and grandchildren; I had to fast forward. I'm glad others liked it.

Wow, where do I even begin! This book had me from chapter one. Constantly wanting to pick it up and read just a little bit more. Full of twists and turns. The ending had me completely shocked, my mouth literally dropped to the floor! Almost cried a few chapters, but so worth it! I highly recommend this book.

An okay read with a surprising ending but too many side stories left unresolved…

From the very first page to the very last I was hooked. Amazing plot point and great twists that made me stop in my tracks and catch my breath! Definitely a must read

This is a book that, for the first time in a long time, I’m blown away. Felt so real and terrifying!

This novel is a good story with many twists. Definitely worth reading, and characters are realistic. There are a few plot points that could have been fleshed out more fully and that’s why the 4 rating versus 5. Definitely recommend reading this book.

It's a great book. So many twists and turns. The ending had me feeling a tad unresolved. There was so little meaning, the why eluded me. Overall a good read. Fast paced.

Words cannot express how much I loved this book. All I will say is that it is worth the read and I would recommend to everyone and anyone!

Quite an amazing book!!! Definitely worth reading!!

Great read!

This book had me hooked the whole time, super fun and fast read.

Kept me interested until the end. Great read.

From the first page to the last, the twists keep coming. So well written. So upset it’s over!

I was hooked from the first page to the last. I could not put it down! If it weren’t for my everyday errands, I would’ve finished it in one day instead of 3!! This book is well written and very descriptive without having to use so many words to paint a picture. It was as if I was watching a movie whilst reading! 10/10 for sure!!!

This is a great “whodunnit” that keeps you interested to the very end.

I read this in one day. It’s a page turner for sure.

Wow. A book that really keeps you on your toes but still answers all of your questions. One of the better books I’ve read. Easy read and definitely worth it!

Great. Start to finish.

Really good book until the end. Absolutely ridiculous resolution to the mystery.

If you love psychological thrillers, you must read this book!! I thought I had it all figured out, but it kept on twisting and turning. Great book!!

I say surprisingly because, in the beginning, the back and forth narrative feels like a gimmick used in other books with little success. It works remarkably well with this story. Great narrative and believable red herrings. A really solid book!

Couldn’t put it down!

Twisty and intriguing. A little far fetched at times but I thoroughly enjoyed it

I loved that the story was told from so many different perspectives! There were so many twists and turns, I couldn’t put it down.

It’s kinda slow, but the ending was pretty good!

It’s one of those books you can’t put down... from start to finish

This is a real page-turner! Just when I thought I had it figured out, it took another turn. If you like mysteries, you'll be entertained with this book!

Hard to put down!

This book is absolutely thrilling! I was kept on the edge of my seat waiting for the next thread of the web to unravel. Wow, great job highly recommend!

Local missing woman had me guessing the entire time! Loved it!

I couldn’t put it down after I started so gooood 😍

I read this nonstop, seriously suspenseful and full of unexpected crazy revelations. I love the fact the story is told by people, not from a police persons POV. It adds depth to each character and layers to the story. I seriously loved this book!!!

Kept my attention and never got boring. Such a twist at the end. I never seen it coming. Loved this book so much. Finished it in a day, sad that I’m done with it now

Slow burn. Not the grand ending I was hoping for. Too many details that go forgotten. The ending felt lazy.

Totally silly. Many moronic plot twists that strain credulity.

All around great read

So well-written and totally a page turner. I started it and finished it in the span of a few hours - impossible to put down!

Absolutely loved it! A page turner that got better and better!

I really enjoyed this book I’ve been glued to my screen reading every chance I get! I could easily rate it 10/10 I was really impressed by how the author kept my interest throughout the entire time.

The twist KILLED me

I read a lot of books but this one is in my top five. It kept me guessing until the end. Wow!

For some reason, I couldn’t really get into the book in the beginning, but I’m glad I stuck with it. Taking many twists and turns, the book was truly a thriller.

This book was a little hard to follow at first trying to keep up with all of the characters but once you got to know them it was easier to follow. The end had such a twist to it that made me want to keep reading!!

Interesting, creatively written. But the end was a little far fetched and hard to believe.

The story is engaging and surprises at the end are welcome, if not a bit obvious to an attentive reader.

This might be my new favorite book. There were so many different elements that kept me entertained from start to finished. Let’s make this a Netflix series already!!

This book was hard to believe. There were so many things that just didn’t seem plausible and a couple of story lines not cleared up.

Keeps you reading all the way through, with an ending you’ll never see coming.

one of the best books i have read in a long time- the writing is not cringe like many of the current books out, and is intensely clever as i could have not possibly guessed anything coming

Quick and easy read…I always appreciate the twists this author adds at the end

I did not expect that ending , I was expecting more of a wilder story but as you get more into it I didn’t stop reading until I felt there was justice.

This was a page turner with lots of twists that keeps you guessing till the very end. I usually guess what happens at the end of stories but not this one. This is a must read if you love a good mystery

So so sad and disappointed. Not much of a mystery

Wow! The ending had me in shock, didn’t see it coming!

Great book

I honestly didn’t see that coming

Loved this book. Had really good twists I did not see coming. Definitely recommend!

Kept me guessing until the last chapter. Really good read that you will surely enjoy!!

Really good.

I love this author and have read everything she has published. A lot of twist and tuns and has a great way to tell her stories.

This is probably the best book I’ve read in a long time! The details in the writing made the entire story cinematic in my mind. I never could have imagined the plot line and it’s ending.

It’s a fun enough read, but ultimately this thriller fails my reasonable plausibility test. The story is just too far-fetched to take seriously.

I couldn’t put it down.

So, I usually have a gift and a curse of seeing endings coming a mile away. Drives my husband nuts. I can truly say, this book got me! So many twists and turns, wonderful ending that I never saw coming, and she did great tying up all the loose ends. HIGHLY recommend! Best mystery I’ve read in a long time!

Couldn’t put this one down, solid read!

I couldn’t put this book down!

I thought it was a good book and it was very entertaining and for sure a page turner but it was a bit complicated and a bit far fetched but overall pleasing.

It’s been years since I have picked up a book. This was definitely a great pick and the thriller I needed. It did not disappoint. I did not see the ending coming. Extremely satisfied!

Did not see that end coming!

The characters in this book were all well developed-The mystery in this book is well planned. I thoroughly enjoyed the suspense and when the plot twisted it seemed unusual but the story unfolded and all was explained.

Just when you think you have it all figured out the book throws you for a loop. Truly a mystery. Must read!

This one keeps you involved!

Great story that keeps you invested in it the whole time.

I’m not usually much of a reader but could not put this down. I read it in two days. The only bad thing is I pretty much got nothing else done :) highly recommend!!

From the second I started reading this book I couldn’t put it down. Probably my favorite book to date. I loved how each character went back and forth sharing their story during that time. So many twists I did not see coming. In the end I was SHOCKED. This is a must read.

The ending itself was great - the pacing of the entire book was fast but didn’t feel rushed. The ending definitely felt like an afterthought. It was so good I would’ve loved a three dimensional take on it - maybe a new character POV. Still, great book and no regrets on the purchase.

Literally could not put this down! I purchased and finished this book all in the same day- It’s fantastically written and the plot flows smoothly and effortlessly! I recommend to anyone that enjoys a good mystery novel.

My Review: From the very first page to the very last page this book had me on pins and needles the whole time. I was totally hooked. I could not put it down for the life of me. I loved it and will shout that to the moon and back. This was my very first book by this author and she sure did not disappoint. I will definitely be reading more of her books in the future. In fact after I finished this book I went on Amazon and bought a few more of her books. I can’t wait to start them. I want to start off by saying that this book could definitely be made into a movie and was hands down my favorite read of the year so far. It had everything that I loved. Great characters, great plot, and a shocking ending. What more can you ask for in a book? I loved every single one of the characters in this book. All the characters worked so well together to make this book come together so nicely. There was not one character that was out of place or that I felt was wrong for this book. Everyone who knows me knows I love a good child kidnapping book especially the ones where they are found many years later. There are so many questions I have when they come back and I loved the way this book addressed them all. Now on to that shocking of an ending. I love dark and twisty endings and let me tell you this one had a real big whopper of one. I never would’ve guessed it in a million years. This was definitely my favorite ending in a book and that is saying a lot coming from me. I am so happy I chose to read this. Lastly, the characters, plot, and the ending of this book made this an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend this book and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Local Woman Missing will keep you on the edge of your seat and entertained the entire book. This book will also have you turning the pages through all the unexpected the twists and turns. Just when you think you have figured it out, something else is revealed. A perfect book to take with you to the pool or beach where you can read for hours. Be sure to add this to your TBR list! A perfect Simmer Read!
