Three months earlier, Jenna Barton was supposed to meet her lifelong best friend Celia. But when Jenna arrived late, she found that Celia had disappeared—and hasn’t been seen again. Jenna has blamed herself for her friend’s disappearance every single day since then.
The only piece of evidence is a lone diamond earring found where Celia and Jenna were planning to meet, leading the national media to dub Celia “The Diamond Mom.” And even though Jenna has obsessively surfed message boards devoted to missing persons cases, she is no closer to finding any answers—or easing her guilt.
But when her son’s new girlfriend—who suddenly arrived in town without a past—disappears, a stricken Jenna begins to unwind the tangled truth behind Celia’s tragedy. And as long-buried secrets finally come to light, she discovers how completely lives can be shattered by a few simple lies.
I’d say David Bell did it again but to be fair this one came out almost 2 years ago. Be that as it may David Bell’s Since She Went Away was such a great book! I was hooked from start to finish. David Bell does such an amazing job with psycological thriller and mysteries that I never really know exactly what’s going on until the end. Since she went away was no different. There was so many possibilities and different stories but by the end it all comes together perfectly neat, clean, and shocking. I was so shocked by the end, I had thought of the possibility but he had a way of making you question and doubt it. All the evidence was there looking back but in tiny hidden details that you easily dismiss. David Bell’s ability for character development and getting you invested with everyone involved its so easy to get lost in his books. So much so I turned my first book in late to the library! Lol
If you haven’t read Since She Went Away you should defiantly pick it up today!
Also keep a look out for his newest book Somebody’s Daughter out in June!
