Book Club Friday #27

It's been entirely too long since I linked up with 2 of my fave Houston girls, Heather and Katie, for Book Club Friday.
 
I kinda miss it!
 
 
This week, I'm sharing Still Missing by Chevy Stevens.
 
My sweet friend Becca sent me this, and I'm SO glad she did. Read ahead..
 

Book description from GoodReads:

On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old realtor, had three goals—sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.

Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of a psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape—her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor.

Still Missing is that rare debut find--a shocking, visceral, brutal and beautifully crafted debut novel.

My thoughts:

This book had me turning pages so fast, I didn't know if I could keep up! It seemed like each chapter ended with a "twist" of sorts, and it definitely kept me wanting more. Oh, and just wait until the ending. OMG, totally wasn't expecting it. I don't want to ruin anything for anyone, so just go ahead and read it for yourself. ;)

I gave it 5 out of 5 stars!

This book was really good, it stuck with me and usually, I don't remember so many details after I read them but I still can't get this one out of my head!

Ooooh, sounds like a good one! I just started some lame-o romance book that really hasn't captured my interest after a couple chapters. I've been looking for another page-turner like this!
