Like the spellbinding psychological suspense in The Girl on the Train and Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Miranda's novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women - a decade apart - told in reverse.
It's been 10 years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne's case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched.
The decade-old investigation focused on Nic; her brother, Daniel; her boyfriend, Tyler; and Corinne's boyfriend, Jackson. Since then only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic's younger neighbor and the group's alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic's return, Annaleise goes missing.
Told backward - day 15 to day 1 - from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor's disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night 10 years ago.
Like nothing you've ever heard before, All the Missing Girls delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you're walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love.
"Rebekkah Ross uses a coolly detached voice to narrate this spellbinding mystery.... Ross rhythmically builds and dissipates the story's tension and excels with descriptive details and subtle character differentiation. Her pace is unrelentingly steady yet captures the many changes in the various flawed characters. As the layers of this atmospheric mystery are peeled back, Ross subsumes herself into the story and engages listeners in discovering the truth of what happened." (AudioFile)

I doubt it
It's probably not fair for me to review this book when I only completed about 1/2 of it but I just don't have the interest to continue. I'm afraid I just could not get into it all. I kept hoping for some spark; maybe just a hint that there was something that was going to blow me away...but after quite a few hours of listening time, I simply gave up. I like stories that grab me right from the beginning, stories in which the narrator is dramatic and into the part. I think this narrator tried to do that but, for me, it just fell a little flat.
Stay with it
