Our main character Sadie loved nothing more in this world than her little sister Mattie. They shared a mother who even when she was there she was never really present. A mother more impressed with drugs and alcohol, Sadie has to step in and give Mattie what she was missing. One day their mother Claire just ups and leaves, leaving Sadie responsible for Mattie. Mattie who adored Claire so grief stricken by her leaving, holds on to the idea of finding her when she gets a postcard from the City of Angels “be my good girl.” Mattie holds on so tight to the possibility of finding her mom, one day she too leaves. She gets into a strangers truck and her mistake is trusting someone whose intentions were way worse than she could ever imagine.
Mattie is murdered and Sadie loses herself. Her one reason to do anything…to go on is taken away from her. And the only way to right this tragic wrong is to seek out the man she believes is responsible for her sisters death.
“I’m going to kill a man. I’m going to steal the light from his eyes. I want to watch it go out.”
Sadie leaves home and starts the journey to get her revenge. Along the journey we learn more about Sadie as a character, the relationship with her mother or lack thereof, and the men that came tumbling in and out of their lives. As we go on this journey with Sadie we feel her desperation, we feel her sadness and we know that there is not a soul that could stop her from doing what she’s set out to do.
Will she find her sisters killer? Will her resilience bring forth the justice that will hold Sadie?

This book was simply amazing! It was everything I love about a thriller. Robert Brynzda is such a detailed and descriptive writer and I am obsessed with his attention to detail. I can already tell I am going to love this series.
The book follows Detective Erika Foster, who has just returned to duty to solve the murder of a young girl from an affluent family. From the beginning, Erika could tell that there was something more to this murder, but the public view of the family was more important to the Chief.
Erika goes against her bosses wishes and follows leads that shine light on the young girl (Andrea) and her secrets. This leads her down many paths that almost get her killed and dismissed from the force.
I am not going to go any further because I do not want to give away any spoilers. Just know the twist that Robert Brynzda gives us in this book will have you SHOOK!!! So please give it a read and if you do, let me know how you feel/think about it.
I give this book a 4.5/5 stars
Until next time, until the next book
So I just finished this amazing book by Megan Miranda. This is the first time I have actually read through an E-book, because I prefer the physical book. This is also my first time reading a book and doing a review from my Netgalley account.
All The Missing Girls, started with secrets and ended with even more secrets. I really enjoyed how the story unfolded. The story itself was told in reverse, so you have to truly be paying attention to follow what is happening throughout the book. This book pulls you in and it does not let you go. I can often read several books at one time, but I had to devote my attention solely to this novel.
Just when you think you know who is behind the disappearances of the two women, Megan throws a totally new slew of clues that makes you realize that you are so wrong. From the moment that Nic is introduced and is needed back home, you get the feeling that she may not come back. The unfinished business that she has with Cooley Ridge begins to grow and as much as you want her to be of total innocent, her truths, her secrets begin to tie everything together for you.
I do not want to do a spoiler review, so I will leave you with this. If you have not picked this book up, please do yourself a favor and give it a read. With a Gone Girl feel, Megan leaves you at the end of the book with eyes wide and mouth opened. I enjoyed this book from start to finish.
I give this book a 5/5.
Until next time, until the next book..
