Review: All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda

Like the spellbinding psychological suspense in The Girl on the Train and Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Miranda’s novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women—a decade apart—told in reverse.

It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched.

The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne’s boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic’s younger neighbor and the group’s alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic’s return, Annaleise goes missing.

Told backwards—Day 15 to Day 1—from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor’s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago.

Like nothing you’ve ever read before, All the Missing Girls delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you’re walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love.

**** 4 Star Review ****

Oh wow! This was my first book my Megan Miranda... I am not sure what to say about this book. It definitely caught be by surprise. All of the twists and turns of events and the mystery had be turning the pages from start to finish!

I definitely did not see the ending coming from the beginning. I had my suspicions on the who but not the how and why. I couldn't figure out how and why, so I kept dismissing the who. (Are you confused already?)

The way the story is told makes it hard to follow. I kept finding myself getting a little lost. Every time I was finally getting into a chapter, it would end and then go backwards another day. This is definitely a book that will require apt attention from start to finish.

I will definitely be reading Megan's next book. It is waiting for me on my Kindle and my bookshelf already. For those thriller and mystery junkies out there, if you haven't read this book, I highly suggest it!
