Nicolette (Nic) travels back to her hometown in the mountains of NC to help her brother prepare their father’s home to be sold. Soon after she arrives, a woman goes missing. The missing woman stirs up lots of old feelings and memories from the time when her best friend Corinne went missing ten years ago. So it begins and we have two mysteries of missing women to follow. Are their disappearances related? What really happened when Corinne went missing all those years ago?
All the Missing Girls was definitely a page turner. The more I read, the more I just had to know what happened to the missing girls! After we find out another woman is missing, the book goes back two weeks before and goes back each day until the current day. At first, I didn’t like this technique, but in the end it was necessary in order to reveal the mystery. This is the first book in a long time that I actually stayed up past my bedtime reading because I just had to find out what happened.
“Missing girls had a way of working their way into someone’s head. You couldn’t help but see them in everyone-how temporary and fragile we might be. One moment here, and the next, nothing more than a photo staring from a storefront window.”
“There is nothing more dangerous, nothing more powerful, nothing more necessary and essential for survival than the lies we tell ourselves.
