This is my first book review of 2014, and it didn't disappoint. After reading this book which I found hard to put down, I think I have found another author to add to my favourites. Melissa Foster has shown that she can not only write great Chic-Lit, but is also a great mystery writer too.
When Junie, one of the main characters was dwelling on her childhood relationship with her best friend it made me think back to my childhood best friend and what we were doing at the age of seven. Luckily my best friend never disappeared.
The journey that she was going through, in trying to piece together what happened to her best friend Ellen, really drew you in. It was very emotional and seemed so real. It made Junie come across as really vulnerable. She was having to deal with her young Daughter who was undergoing tests as she had become withdrawn and had stopped speaking. Her relationship with her Husband was also very testing as he didn't want to speak to Junie about Ellen(who also happened to be his young Sister) and her disappearance.
Whilst Junie tried to work out what had happened to Ellen, as a reader I went on the journey with her. I was so drawn into the story and started coming to my own conclusions, only for the Author to flip the story in a different direction and dampen all my theories!
This book was so well written; full of different emotions; full of content and full of mystery. I'm certainly putting this Author and all her books on my "must read" list.
