What Remains Of Her Reviews
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
A mother and daughter mysteriously disappear and leave a wake of wreakage behind. This was a solid who done it with a 25 year time lapse to help show the consequences for all the characters involved in this tragedy. Ultimately I would recommend it to people who like novels with twists and turns or reading about a brokenness that never heals.
Thank you to the publisher for providing me with this arc available through edelweiss.
Thank you to William Morrow Books and Goodreads. I won a copy of Kindle book in a goodreads giveaway.
Jonah comes home from work one day and his wife and daughter aren't home. He really doesn't think too much of it at first, but after several hours he knows that something is wrong. He calls his friend Maurice, who happens to be the sheriff. But Jonah lies about a couple of things like where he slept last night and the fight Rebecca and Jonah had.

When a mother and her young daughter go missing in a small Vermont town, all eyes turn to the man of the house, Jonah Baum. Jonah's best friend and town sheriff believes that he may have harmed his own wife and child. Will the people of this idyllic community, these families, and friends be able to face what lies ahead as they begin to unravel the truth? This is truly a fast paced suspenseful domestic thriller which will have readers guessing right up to its stunning conclusion.
Nope. I deeply wish writers would know what the end point of the plot is when they write. Or it just ends up like this and it is bizarre parts of nonsense. There is so much happenstance and then other stuff and then more happenstance and then the unveiling of what happened. Which then makes so little sense. If this was planned out ahead of writing then I am even more confused. If that is indeed possible. But if you look at other reviews I am in the minority so what do I know.
Wow. This book is filled with so many twists and turns it left me with my jaw hanging. Usually when I read a mystery or thriller it's pretty predictable . This one was anything but! Loved all the characters and felt connected . Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen , I was wrong! What a rollercoaster ride!!! Go read it! You won't be disappointed!!

What Remains of Her by Eric Rickstad captured me right from the beginning and didn't let me go. I still can't stop thinking about that ending, how I never saw it coming and how it broke my heart. I love Eric Rickstads writing. You really get to know each character and form a bond with them, whether they are an adult or a child. He has such a great way of making their emotions and fear almost tangible.

I read this within one day, staying up until almost 2 am to finish. Absolutely superb, really twisty book. I'll come back to the review later because I'm trying to figure out the best way to talk about it without spoilers.
