Gone is the second book in a series. I had not read the first, but it didn’t seem to make a difference. From what I can tell, each book in the series seems to focus on a different set of characters that are all somewhat connected.
In this book, we meet Alec and Raegan at the hospital. A girl has just been found in a park and they think that it may be their daughter, Emma, who was abducted three years earlier. The couple split after the abduction but decide to work together to try and figure out who took Emma, if she is still alive and if other kids being abducted are related. They have found patterns between the other abductions, but Emma doesn’t fit it. Is her abduction related or is Alec right and his biological father is to blame?
There are a lot of twists and turns in this story and I couldn’t put it down once things really started taking off! Definitely a great read if you’re into mystery and thrill!
I received a free e-copy of this book from NetGalley in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
Three years ago, Alec McClane and Raegan Devereaux lived every parent’s worst nightmare: their one-year-old daughter, Emma, was abducted from a park when Alec turned his back for just a moment. Emma was never found, and presumed dead. The crushing trauma, plus Alec’s unbearable guilt, ended the couple’s marriage.
Now a four-year-old girl matching Emma’s profile is found wandering a local park. Alec and Raegan are heartbroken to discover she’s not their daughter but are newly motivated to find closure…and each secretly feels desperate to be in the other’s presence again.
Alec suspects his vengeful biological father is behind Emma’s disappearance. But as Raegan investigates other abductions in the area, she sees a pattern—and begins to wonder if Emma’s kidnapping is actually linked to something more sinister.
As Alec and Raegan race to uncover the truth, a long-burning spark rekindles into smoldering passion, and they realize they need each other now more than ever.
