I don’t normally read mainstream books, however, if something looks interesting or is given to me then I will certainly read it! This book was left in one of the rooms I was cleaning at work as a donation so I couldn’t say no to the chance to give it a try. There’s something so cozy about finding a book in a cottagey setting (Which is where I’m at right now) especially something juicy like a thriller or mystery.
Women walk away from their lives everyday – so when a search party can’t find Molly’s body (or any further clues as to where she went) the verdict is she must have purposely disappeared. She had been unhappy for years after (accidentally) killing her own daughter. Will her family even miss her?
The answer is yes. Molly’s daughter, Nic, is determined to find her mother, knowing there is no way that Molly would walk away from her life – especially her children.
Molly is taken by a seemingly kind man in a truck who has a little girl with him, but when he locks the gate and lives off the grid, she realizes she’s trapped in a nightmare she can’t run away from. This thriller was truly creepy and you didn’t know what was going to happen next. It really uncovers the human psyche – such as what happens when someone undergoes unbearable loss and why people often seek out those who are similar to the one who broke their heart. I also like how Molly found qualities in herself she didn’t know she had – she’s a kind motherly type, but she’s also tougher and smarter than she gave herself credit for.
I was really impressed with this story overall.
My Rating: 5/5 stars
