Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell

Start Date: June 25, 2019

Finish Date: June 26, 2019

Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Suspense and Domestic Fiction 


“Ellie Mack was the perfect daughter.

She was fifteen, the youngest of three. She was beloved by her parents, friends, and teachers. She and her boyfriend made a teenaged golden couple. She was days away from an idyllic post-exams summer vacation, with her whole life ahead of her.

And then she was gone. Now, her mother Laurel Mack is trying to put her life back together. It’s been ten years since her daughter disappeared, seven years since her marriage ended, and only months since the last clue in Ellie’s case was unearthed. So when she meets an unexpectedly charming man in a café, no one is more surprised than Laurel at how quickly their flirtation develops into something deeper. Before she knows it, she’s meeting Floyd’s daughters—and his youngest, Poppy, takes Laurel’s breath away.

Because looking at Poppy is like looking at Ellie. And now, the unanswered questions she’s tried so hard to put to rest begin to haunt Laurel anew. Where did Ellie go? Did she really run away from home, as the police have long suspected, or was there a more sinister reason for her disappearance? Who is Floyd, really? And why does his daughter remind Laurel so viscerally of her own missing girl.”

My Review:


This book was an absolutely amazing read! It’s complex plot and plot twists really left me on edge throughout the entire book. This is by far one of the best murder mystery books I have read in a long time, it was unpredictable and by the end, I was very shocked at how everything turned out!

I was able to connect and really picture every character in this book which is not easy to do as a reader sometimes. Finishing the book in a day can be attributed to how addictive and suspenseful the book itself was, at the end of every chapter I was left wanting to keep reading to find out just what was going to happen.

I would recommend this book to someone who wants a nailbiting story that will leave you second guessing pretty much everything! In the end, it will all come together and that alone makes the book so amazing and well thought out! Definitely one of my favorite books of the entire year so far!
