Gone Missing - Review & GIVEAWAY



Remember back when I reviewed a book and gave away 2 copies to 2 of my readers?

Well, I'm doing it again! I was contacted by the same media company to review Gone Missing by Linda Castillo.


When I read the summary of this book, I knew it would be a page-turner and one that I would be more than happy to give to my readers.

The author, Linda Castillo is a New York Times bestselling author who lives in Texas with her husband and is currently at work on her next book in this series, also set in Amish Country and featuring Chief of Police Kate Burkholder.


About the book:
Linda Castillo’s bestselling series has been called “gripping” [People] and “impossible to put down” [Bookpage] and the “teeth chattering suspense” [USA Today] continues with GONE MISSING—a deeply chilling novel about a rite of passage gone horribly wrong.

Rumspringa is the time when Amish teens are allowed to experience life without the rules. It’s an exciting time of personal discovery and growth before committing to the church. But when a young teen disappears without a trace, the carefree fun comes to an abrupt and sinister end, and fear spreads through the community like a contagion. 

A missing child is a nightmare to all parents, and never more so than in the Amish community, where family ties run deep. When the search for the presumed runaway turns up a dead body, the case quickly becomes a murder investigation. And chief of Police Kate Burkholder knows that in order to solve this case she will have to call upon everything she has to give not only as a cop, but as a woman whose own Amish roots run deep.

Kate and state agent, John Tomasetti, delve into the lives of the missing teen and discover links to cold cases that may go back years. But will Kate piece together all the parts of this sinister puzzle in time to save the missing teen and the Amish community from a devastating fate? Or will she find herself locked in a fight to the death with a merciless killer?

My thoughts:
This book pulled me in from page one. The author is very descriptive and takes the reader to the exact spot the characters are. It's very mysterious and suspenseful. This book will leave you wanting more and more! I give it 5 stars, for sure.

Lucky for you guys, I've been given the chance to give 2 of my readers their very own copy of this book! HOLLA!

This giveaway will last until Friday, July 20 11:59pm CST. I will announce the winners the next day, Saturday either here on my blog or on twitter.
