Another day, another #cjsreads April pick. As mentioned previously on Clues and Reviews, this one was one of my most anticipated reads for Spring 2017! Did it live up to the hype?
Keep reading for a synopsis of the book and to see what we all thought of this psychological thriller releasing this week!
Synopsis from Goodreads:
A jaw-dropping novel of psychological suspense that asks, “If the love of your life disappeared without a trace, how far would you go to find out why? ”
Hannah Monroe’s boyfriend, Matt, is gone. His belongings have disappeared from their house. Every call she ever made to him, every text she ever sent, every photo of him and any sign of him on social media have vanished. It’s as though their last four years together never happened.
As Hannah struggles to get through the next few days, with humiliation and recriminations whirring through her head, she knows that she’ll do whatever it takes to find him again and get answers. But as soon as her search starts, she realizes she is being led into a maze of madness and obsession. Step by suspenseful step, Hannah discovers her only way out is to come face to face with the shocking truth…

What Jessica Thought:
Gone Without a Trace by Mary Torjussen was one I didn’t know too much about before starting (clearly I’m not the best with reading the synopsis before starting a book), so I didn’t know exactly what to think. I rather enjoyed it!
At first, I couldn’t stop reading! I NEEDED to know why he disappeared. How the heck did he get everything erased from her life in a day? As you read you start to wonder, is Hannah actually crazy? There were so many questions! Then the story took a complete turn in a different direction. There were parts in the book that felt a little slow.
Overall, I loved Hannah, she was incredibly relatable and you felt for her in her struggle to find Matt. It was an enjoyable read, and I think it helped that I didn’t really know much about this book before starting (I didn’t have any kind of expectations set). I only wish the second half was as fast paced and quick as the first half. Mary Torjussen did an incredible job, and I’d definitely read more of her books!
I give this 4/5 stars.

I thought the ending could have been better, too! I have to say, I did love the epilogue and found the last few lines to be very clever, though! 😄

I agree! The epilogue was okay, but not feeling the rest!
