No one ever disappears completely...
You leave for work one morning. Another day in your normal life. Until you come home to discover that your boyfriend has gone.
His belongings have disappeared. He hasn't been at work for weeks. It's as if he never existed. But that's not possible, is it? And there is worse still to come. Because just as you are searching for him
someone is also watching you.


I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.

Man when the twist came into play all I could say was OMG I so didn't see that coming at all. 

I don't know how to write this review without giving anything away because it is such a crazy twist but it doesn't come out until almost the end. 

So we follow Hannah as she has it all a wonderful job, a house and a boyfriend who loves her or does he? 
When she comes home and finds him gone she loses it. She will stop at nothing to find him but what she will uncover will not be pretty. The topic this book touches is one that a lot of people don't think happens, but let me tell you it does. Everything has been deleted from Hannah's life that has to do with her boyfriend Matt which has her literally going crazy. 

The way the author developed Hannah and the way she acted was pretty darn good. The plot was amazing and I loved how it was a page turner for me. 
This was one of those books that I couldn't put down, even to get things done.

    1. Hi Jenny

      I get the inspiration for stories from all sorts of places. I love to read and often something I read will spark off an idea for a book.

      The idea for Gone Without a Trace came from an online forum where a woman posted saying that she'd come home from work and found her boyfriend had left home, taking literally everything with him. That started me wondering why he'd done that and why he hadn't just told her he was going. I went to bed thinking about that and the next morning I woke up and thought, "Of course, THAT'S why!" And I knew then that this was a story I wanted to write.
