All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda

Have you all noticed that books that are in the thriller category are compared to one or both of the following books? It's either "for fans of Girl on the Train," or "for fans of Gone Girl," read this title. I think All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda can stand just fine on its own two feet. This book will take you on a roller coaster of emotions, and keep you wondering who was involved in, and who was ultimately responsible in the disappearance of two girls, a decade apart. When Corinne disappeared, you haven't the faintest idea how it happened, until the story slowly unfolds and characters are caught up in the fray. Each one of them becoming a part of the puzzle, but the author holds that last piece, the one that fits it all together, in the palm of her hand. In a town full of ghosts, both past and present, Nicolette is back in Cooley Ridge and the story that follows is incredible.

Megan Miranda crafts a narrative that wraps you in from the very start, and weaves an intricate web of deception that readers will be stuck in until the ending is revealed. A perfect poolside read!
Synopsis via Amazon
It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched.

The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne’s boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic’s younger neighbor and the group’s alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic’s return, Annaleise goes missing.

Told backwards—Day 15 to Day 1—from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor’s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago.

Like nothing you’ve ever read before, All the Missing Girls delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you’re walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love.
