Fifteen-year-old Ellie Mack was the perfect daughter. 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 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 cafe, she is surprised at how quickly their flirtation develops into something deeper. Before she knows it, she's meeting Floyd's daughters-and his youngest, Poppy, takes her breath away. Looking at her is like looking at Ellie. And now, the unanswered questions she has tried so hard to put to rest haunt her well as some new ones about Floyd and Poppy...

    Started good but about halfway through I just lost interest.

    Great twists!

    A lot of the other reviews on this book talked about it being predictable, but I think it was only as predictable as the author wanted it to be the book is kind of slow, but I still liked it and really enjoyed the ending.

  • Amanda B.

    It was good! Predictable, yet sometimes, surprising. There is just one question I had at the end, that never really got answered..but other things tied up nicely.

  • Desiree M.

    Started off slow. The book is kind of predictable, but I was still guessing and thought the worst from each character. I loved the last few hours of the book. The reader did an amazing job.

  • Dana L.

    I loved this book. Such interesting twists.

  • Kristen L.

    I enjoyed the reader of this book whose voice was soothing and malleable. The story was interesting but I did find it to be a tad predictable.

  • Donna M.

    Beginning was slow. Thought the last few hours were the best. Quite a story!

  • Carlinne D.

    This was a very interesting read. A bit predictable towards the middle but did not take away from the story. Very well written. Narrator was wonderful!

  • Kim C.

    Extremely predictable. I figured the plot out near the beginning but so hoped there would be a twist.
