Grace Is Gone: A Novel

We rated this book:


Beloved Meg has been murdered and her daughter, Grace is Gone. The community can’t imagine who could have done such a thing, other than Meg’s estranged husband who had tried to kidnap Grace once before. Cara, their next-door neighbor, and Jon, a reporter trying to make up for past mistakes begin searching for Grace and discover that things aren’t so black and white. Both Meg and Grace had their secrets and sometimes reality is more twisted than our imaginations. Jon and Cara are walking a thin line that could get dangerous because we often don’t want the truth to ever come out.

It was fairly obvious what was really going on even at the beginning of the story and unfortunately the writing style didn’t make it any more enjoyable. I knew a couple of pages in that I didn’t enjoy this author’s writing style. The topic of the book, however, is fascinating and how it impacts Cara and Jon themselves and whom they turn out to be. This was not a thriller by any means, so if you decide to read it just be aware of that going into it. It was more of a character study, which I usually like, however, I was not the biggest fan of this author’s storytelling style.
