Before You Were Gone by Sheila Bugler

Children going missing or dying suddenly is always traumatic. Especially if you live in a small town where everyone is affected by this. Kitty drowns in an accident and then another girl goes missing. The town and the families are never the same. Fast forward twenty years and Dee is almost a hundred percent certain a person she glimpsed at a station was her long dead, drowned sister Kitty. Scoffed at by many Dee knows what she has seen, and is adamant that her sister is alive. Joining hands with her cousin, who also wants to know where Lucy's body is buried, the two embark on an investigation which is so twisted that one never knows who is hiding what. The story is complicated because not one person is what they seem. All seem to have hidden agendas and it is not easy to discern the truth to find the way forward. You had to focus on this story and not get sidetracked as it can get confusing but overall a good story. Sent by Canelo for an honestreview, courtesy of Netgalley.


  1. That's an intriguing plot and sounds as though it would keep the reader interested.

  2. I love stories like this where all is not as it seems. :)
