What Remains Of Her Reviews
One of the best psychological thrillers I have read in a while. It kept me guessing right to the end!!! Thank you Goodreads!!!
This was the first book I’ve read by Eric Rickstad and I have to say that it is a top-notch thriller.
One day Jonah Baum wakes up to find his wife and daughter missing. A search ensues and some mysterious drawings left behind by his daughter, Sally, come into question, but, tragically, the duo are never found. 25 years later Jonah’s loss still haunts him and he lives the life of hermit, with little contact with the outside world. When another child goes missing, both Sally’s childhood friend, Luc ...more
This is a standard case of mother and daughter disappearing with the husband as prime suspect number one. There's an ominous tone set from the beginning with the depths of childhood imagination and that wholehearted importance to keep secrets for your best friend, no matter the consequence or potential helpfulness to a case. It's amazing what we deem to be so much more important as children than as adults.
We fast forward a couple of decades+ where people close to the case are still deal ...more
Fairly simple mystery involving the disappearance of a mother, Rebecca, and her daughter, Sally. The story jumps back and forth between Jonah, the husband and father who is the prime suspect, and the daughter's best friend, Lucinda.

What Remains of Her by Eric Rickstad is an electrifying mystery set in rural Vermont.
Jonah Baum returns home from work one evening to discover his wife Rebecca and seven year old daughter Sally have disappeared. He quickly contacts his friend and neighbor Sheriff Maurice Welch who rapidly organizes a search party to look for the missing duo. With no evidence to go on, Maurice calls in the state police to aid in the investigation. Jonah is their number one (and practically) only suspec ...more
Ominous, creepy the same old story? Or is it? I loved this book! I could not put it down. One of the best thrillers I’ve read in a long time. Kept me guessing. Enjoy!
I hadn't intended on pulling an all nighter, but once I started this book I could not put it down. It was really an interesting mystery/thriller because it could have gone in Sooooooo many directions and you have all your wheels spinning trying to figure out-is it going to be some kind of spider horror (you'll see), serial killer, deranged Dad and on and on. Takes place in a small Vermont town in the woods. And the best part is there was an ending! (unlike many books I have read lately)
