A Glowing Five Stars

Wow, I take my hat off to the author for this book, it was simply unputdownable. A tragic tale of a missing teenager which will have you asking yourself what you would have done had you been in Ella's shoes. I listened on audio and found myself prolonging my household chores just to listen to one more chapter, and driving a little slower when it played in the car. It's the sense of intrigue that carries this novel along nicely, the need to hear just another chapter to find out what happens next. There are several families involved with various characters and Teresa writes with such authenticity that you can see the story play out in your mind's eye. Unlike some books, you're never left wondering who a particular character is for very long as the author explains it very clearly. Everyone has secrets - which I loved. My sense of curiosity was on overdrive and the ending was brilliant, all the loose ends tied together beautifully without seeming rushed. It's easy to see why this book has been such a huge hit with readers and I look forward to her next offering, The Friend. Also, a note for the narrator. I am a huge fan of Elizabeth Knowelden and she did an amazing job of bringing this audiobook to life. A glowing five stars from me.

Wonderful from start to finish.

An interesting and clever plot. Not overcomplicated or ridiculous. Brilliant characters. Recommended fully without hesitation.

Page turner!

Full of twists and turns, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Well narrated and constructed, it’s never too predictable. The characters are believable for the most part, though there was a small glitch where three different characters all use the same phrase “done a bunk”. However that was the only annoyance (and yes I realise it’s tiny) for me. Overall I’d definitely recommend.

Why was it not perfect?

The premise was a good one, but the telling of the story lacked tightness. There was hardly any need to have a blow by blow account of the detective's domestic situation, the dog's behavior, and other pointless descriptions. Far too many small observations that added nothing to the story.
Sloppy writing... "Done a bunk" said by various characters, and the expression "from the off" repeated countless times again by every character. How many times did we have to hear the daughter say "You disgust me" to her dad?

The reader has received many accolades in the reviews but I found her voice too breathless and slightly hysterical as a way of blowing drama into the narrative, even in places where it was definitely not called for.
She lacked that amazing skill some readers have to differentiate characters, in voice, accent and tonality.
Having said all this, I thought it was a fairly well thought out thriller. Congratulation. It has obviously done well.
