This was a good read of a missing girl followed by the murder mystery. Gemma disappeared, Rachel investigated, Lee was in a quandary, the only who seemed to have links to both women. An unsolvable equation soon emerged between them.
My first book by author Louise Mullins, the story was told in 3 POV. Gemma, the victim, telling us about the day she was lost and events leading to that. Rachel, as an alcoholic journalist, kept dithering over various details. She was hungover more than she investigated. Lee with connections to apparently all the women in the story.
All 3 were quite unlikable, but they managed to tell me a story which kept me from guessing the killer. Till the mid-half where it kind of became obvious. I am a great detective, you know.
A steady pace with a good, easy to understand style of writing, a murky plot line kept me entertained through the afternoon.
I received a free ARC from Coroline and the author, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
