#TsundokuSquad Book Club – September – The Girls Who Disappeared

Hello fellow bookworms!

Well it has been a while since I wrote one of these.

We decided to take the summer off and start a fresh in September. For this months read we chose The Girls Who Disappeared by Claire Douglas.

Synopsis:

Three missing girls. A twenty year mystery. A woman who may be able to crack this cold case.

In a rural Wilshire town lies The Devil’s Corridor. A road which has witnessed eerie happenings from unexplained deaths to the sounds of a child crying at night.

But nothing more puzzling than the Olivia Rutherford case. Four girls drove home but after their car crashed only Olivia was found.

Twenty years later, journalist Jenna Halliday is covering the case. But the locals aren’t happy with this stranger’s arrival. Least of all Olivia.

Jenna soon starts receiving threatening notes and it is clear someone wants her out of this town before she suffers a dark fate . . .

#TsundokuSquad Review:

All of us in the group love a good mystery to solve and we were very excited to get stuck into this one. From the start we all had a lot of questions and theories about what had happened to the three missing girls. Something didn’t seem to add up and there were a lot of characters that gave us cause for concern.

In amongst this story happening in the fictional town of Stafferbury we had another story taking place in Thailand. A lot of us in the group were completely thrown by this part as it seemed completely random. We all wondered if and how it connected to the other story and once again it didn’t take long for the theories to start forming.

I honestly found parts of this story scary, especially when Jenna was alone in the woods. I felt my heart in my throat on many occasions scared for what might happen and slowly but surely everyone became a suspect in my mind.

Claire Douglas instantly pulls the reader in takes you on a roller-coaster ride with twists and turns hurtled at you towards the end. I was taken by surprise at the final revelations and hadn’t foreseen some of them, which is always a sign of a good book!

It’s safe to say that our first read back after the summer was a winner! For October we are diving into a witchy read, The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling.
