Spellbinding and Completely Irresistible.

No one knew what happened to Ellie. The police have never found a trace of her. My interest was piqued from the very beginning. My breath caught in my throat - nerves jangled.

THEN SHE WAS GONE by LISA JEWELL is a breathtaking, thrilling, unputdownable, and suspenseful psychological thriller novel that had me totally engrossed and interested right from the very first page. I was so intrigued in finding out what happened to Ellie Mack that I was racing through those pages as fast as I could!
LISA JEWELL delivers a well-written story here with flawed, believable, and compelling characters that was told in alternating points of view and short chapters to make this a quic ...more
Totally enjoyable .....
As a couple of friends said - (Diane & Esil) - they were pretty sure ‘what’ happened to Ellie who had gone missing early in their reading — me too - but I didn’t know ‘why’.

Much about this story felt real.
While on the way to the library— a child is never to be seen again. It gives me c ...more
👩👧Then She Was Gone was dark, gripping and absolutely addictive! 💔
Ellie Mack was vibrant, happy, smart, in love and only fifteen when she disappeared without a trace. Authorities ruled her a runaway but her mother, Laurel Mack, could never fully accept that. There were too many unanswered questions and she just knew that Ellie wouldn't simply walk away from the life she loved.
Laurel's life is put on hold with the disappearance of her daughter. She is simply stuck, unable to move on with life wi ...more
I'm about 3.5 stars here.
"When her children were small they'd sometimes say, 'What would you do if I died?' And she would reply, 'I would die too, because I could not live without you.' And then her child had died and she had found out that somehow, incredibly, she could live without her, that she had woken every morning for a hundred days, a thousand days, three thousand days and she had lived without her."
Ellie Mack was a golden child—beautiful, smart, popular. At 15, she was the apple of her ...more
This is the third Lisa Jewell thriller that I have read and she has penned another winner! After finishing this book I really had to wait a few days to sort of “SETTLE ME DOWN” as this mystery touched some very delicate feelings in me, more so than her first two books. Call me a snob but in my experience with thrillers, it has been hard to find many with the combination of great writing, past and present POV’s that flow seamlessly together, and create emotions that well up inside of you and real ...more
