What Remains Of Her Reviews
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.
The winter setting of Vermont just adds another layer to an already bleak and depressing situation. The strength of the book is not so much the mystery as it is seeing how the disappearance affects Jonah and Lucinda. There is definitely a haunting type quali ...more
An old pit in the middle of the woods. A mysterious man watching the two little girls. Terrifying drawings hidden beneath a child's coloring book pages. All of these things add to a keep you on the edge of your seat thriller centering around Jonah and the disappearance of his wife and daughter. As with all of Eric's books, you think you know what is going to happen next....and are usually wrong! If you pay attention there is a key "Ah ha!" moment about 300 pages in that gives you a little hint t ...more
I’m a big fan of Eric’s work and have been eagerly anticipating this new novel of his for some time - I’m so glad to say that it didn’t disappoint.
Eerily good, creepy, wonderfully visual like all of Eric’s previous work, he is just a wonderful writer.
As I said previously when I finished reading The Silent girls, I really hope Netflix snap up this book for dramatisation, it’s easily good enough to be an engrossing Netflix thriller series - there’s something Twin Peaksy about it, despite it mainta ...more

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.

This was quite a thriller. It seemed really real. Stuff i thought was leading me along, went nowhere. And I did not see the ending coming.
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
(I won an uncorrected proof of this book in a Goodreads Giveaway)
What Remains of Her by Eric Rickstad tells the story of one man's grief and obsession after the sudden loss of his wife and daughter. Wrapped within that story of pain and suffering is a mystery that is less touched upon as the book progresses, but then solved before the book's conclusion.
Overall, the story was strong and the premise keeps you turning pages from the beginning. However, by the time the story reached 2012 and 25 yea ...more
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.
