About All the missing girls
It’s been 10 years since Nic left her home time after her best friend, Corinne got missing. Now Nic is back in town to clean the house and to sell it. Her father has dementia and it is getting worse. But he is also talking about a girl and that he saw her.
And not long after Nic came back to Cooley Ridge, Annaleise suddenly disapeared. Her brother was the last person who saw her. Annaleise went to the forest next to their house.
I’ve heard so many great stories about this book and this book was on my wishlist for ages. But now I read and it feels like a disappointment. This book was just not for me. I liked the writing style of Megan Miranda, but that was it. I was not impressed by the story at all. All though it was good enough that I wanted to finish this book. But I’ve read better thrillers.
Another thing I liked was the plot twist. I had a couple of suspects obviously, but I was wrong. And I like that. I like when I read thrillers that I am wrong about who the killer is.
One thing that probably was the most annoying thing was the timeline. We start two weeks after Annaleise got missing and then you go back in time. Yes, this story is told backwards. That was a little bit confusing for me sometimes. Maybe I just prefer a chronological timeline. Maybe this book wasn’t for me. But I am happy that I still read it. Otherwise, it would be still on my wishlist without knowing that it wouldn’t be the right book for me.
