Book Review – Love You Gone by Rona Halsall

My review

I loved this book thoroughly!! Absolute mind blowing, different thriller, though some parts may be slightly unbelievable

What do you call a book where the events make your pulse race?

What do you call a book where the plan unfolding makes you hold your breath?

What do you call a book where you jump with joy knowing things are falling into place?

What do you call a book where every scene makes you long for more?

What you call a book when your breath gets hitched and you forget to breathe when the cops come a-knocking?

What do call a book which you never want to end?

What do you call a book which makes you wonder at the intelligence of the author who writes it?


This was Rona’s best book to date, and I have no words to express how this author made me feel while reading the book.
She made me go bonkers, I tried imagining what would happen and how the scenes would play out, when everything seemed so dismal and inescapable. But she surpassed my imagination.

And the author found a fabulous way to fix every loose end like a jigsaw puzzle. I guessed the basic arc, but who cared on the face of the writing where the mind zaps and zings trying to figure it all out.

I didn’t want to analyse this book I just wanted to feel it, I wanted to cheer it, I want to pump my fists and jump up high after reading it. The story was a bit overboard in some parts, the theme sounded familiar when the book started with Mel leaving from work late and joining her family at a remote holiday home, only to find the house empty with all the lights blazing!! Where were her husband and kids? The stage was set, cops were called, and the story rolled on. But there were a lot of things happening behind the curtains, and they literally blew my mind away!! Rocking fun all the way!!

I want more such books from this author who has shown what a thriller ought to be.
Good going, Rona!!

I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Bookouture abd this is my honest and unbiased opinion.

My rating : 5 stars

Book blurb

When Mel arrives at the holiday cottage in the Lake District, she expects to find the heating on and her husband Luke and the two children waiting for her. Maybe a bottle of wine open…

Instead, there is just a note on the side, saying they’ve gone out for a walk.

But they aren’t back several hours later, and Mel knows something is wrong. Really wrong. When a search doesn’t find them, she has to confess to the police that her marriage isn’t all that it seems.

Even if that risks her own secrets being revealed…
