Publisher's Summary

An addictive novel of psychological suspense from the award-winning author of Night Night, Sleep Tight, about three generations of women haunted by a little girl's disappearance, and the porcelain doll that may hold the key to the truth.
Seven-year-old Lissie Woodham and her four-year-old sister Janey were playing with their porcelain dolls in the front yard when an adorable puppy scampered by. Eager to pet the pretty dog, Lissie chased after the pup as it ran down the street. When she returned to the yard, Janey's precious doll was gone...and so was Janey.
Forty years after Janey went missing, Lis - now a mother with a college-age daughter of her own - still blames herself for what happened. Every year on the anniversary of her sister's disappearance, their mother, Miss Sorrel, places a classified ad in the local paper with a picture of the toy Janey had with her that day - a one-of-a-kind porcelain doll - offering a generous cash reward for its return. For years, there's been no response. But this year, the doll came home.
It is the first clue in a decades-old mystery that is about to turn into something far more sinister - endangering Lis and the lives of her mother and daughter as well. Someone knows the truth about what happened all those years ago, and is desperate to keep it hidden.

Pretty good story! Some twists and turns...

This was a pretty basic but interesting mystery. Mostly predictable. Narrator has an interesting voice and tends to pause instead of stop at the end of a sentence BUT if you hang in there you'll get through it. Not much in the way of character development and one character drops completely off the map in an odd way because you'd think the daughter would be around for a lot of this but isn't. Favorite part of the book is one of the characters describing her breakfast of southern biscuits and sausage gravy.

One out of two......?

A “critical review” says this novel is intensely riveting. Good laugh. I would revise that assessment to say “weirdly interesting.”

The review also says McFadden’s narration is adept and enjoyable, which is quite true. She handles narration subtleties very well.
