About this deal

The realness of the emotions of all of the characters was so realistic and insightful it truly felt like I was experiencing the revealing of the mystery of what happened to her daughter with Laurel.

A tasty, if not always tasteful, tale of supernatural mayhem that fans of King and Crichton alike will enjoy. I would listen to a friend's concerns, regardless if she believed in Mother Nature or the Great Pumpkin. The mounting evidence of ever more and ever worse skulduggery will pull Tempe deeper and deeper down what even she sees as a rabbit hole before she confronts a ringleader implicated in “Drugs.

And another surprising thing about this man is her 9 years old daughter named Poppy who lives with her, has great resemblance with her deceased daughter. I kept hoping something exciting would happen to prove me wrong, but it really is as obvious as it seems. If the author can find just the right combination of these things, then I will be right there ready to throw more stars their way. Even now, after finishing, there are still some questions I have floating around in my head about the events of the novel and the outcome.

Before too long she’s staying the night at this house and being introduced to his nine year old daughter.The more time Laurel spends with Poppy, the more confused she becomes about her personality, her outlook on life, and how Laurel sees her dead daughter in Poppy.

Her marriage fell apart, her other daughter, Hanna became distant and withdrawn from her Mother,her son moved away. Besides the suspense — the characters hearts are tender - I felt what they did — none were offensive. Someone once mooted the theory that Hanna felt too guilty to have a boyfriend because her little sister would never have one. As you may imagine Laurel is devastated, barely holding up but one day she meets Floyd at a cafe, sharing a carrot cake and the charming, mysterious, charismatic mathematician blows her mind. From the ten-million-copy bestselling author comes a brand new look for this compulsively twisty psychological thriller that will keep you hooked to the very last page.Her disappearance takes a huge toll on the family, a family that breaks apart as many families in this type of situations often do. I became invested in the feelings of Eliie’s mother, and as a mother of four daughters, I wanted so badly for things to somehow turn out that this poor woman didn’t have to continue without knowing what happened to her missing beautiful, intelligent, golden girl! This book is the tragic life story of Ellie, which will bring tears to your eyes if you are a compassionate human being. But, finally, after years of just going through the motions of life, Laurel meets Floyd, a single dad with a young daughter named Poppy.

If you are the publisher or author and feel that they do not properly reflect the range of media opinion now available, send us a message with the mainstream reviews that you would like to see added. I think this is one of those books that I had such high hopes for that I let myself expect too much. This was a quick read but unlikable and ridiculous, hard to believe characters made it difficult for me to believe a word. Laurel, Ellie's mother, is struggling to get her life back on track and save her relationships with her two remaining children.also, i was super into the version of the story i had imagined before reading this and what actually happened feels… disappointing? Then She was Gone is not about what happened to Ellie, it’s more about the how and the why she disappeared, as well as the after-effects of her disappearance on her family. I am super creeped out by listening to the endangered characters thoughts and knowing that they will come to a bad end.
