And She Was review
Author: Alison Gaylin
5 out of 5 stars
Disclosure: I received a complimentary galley of this book from the Amazon.com Vine program in exchange for an honest review.
Synopsis: Missing persons investigator Brenna Spector has a rare neurological disorder that enables her to recall every detail of every day of her life. It began in childhood, when her older sister stepped into a strange car never to be seen again, and it’s proven invaluable in her work. But it hasn’t helped her solve the mystery that haunts her above all others—and it didn’t lead her to six-year-old Iris Neff, who walked away from a barbecue in her small suburban town more than a decade ago... and vanished. When a local woman, Carol Wentz, disappears eleven years later, Brenna uncovers bizarre connections between the missing woman, the long-gone little girl... and herself.
My Thoughts: Definitely a suspenseful novel, this book has plenty of twists and turns, secrets to be revealed; old secrets come to light and characters reveal that things aren’t always what they seem. Brenna is an interesting character, and the neurological disorder from which she suffered is presented in such a way as to give an idea as to how distracting and disturbing it could be. I felt that the interactions between most of the characters was realistic. Basically, if you like thrillers and suspense novels, you will like And She Was. Check it out.
