One Night Gone

Summary: A Finalist for the Mary Higgins Clark Award, Agatha Award, and Lefty Award

It was the perfect place to disappear…

One sultry summer, Maureen Haddaway arrives in the wealthy town of Opal Beach to start her life anew—to achieve her destiny. There, she finds herself lured by the promise of friendship, love, starry skies, and wild parties. But Maureen’s new life just might be too good to be true, and before the summer is up, she vanishes.

Decades later, when Allison Simpson is offered the opportunity to house-sit in Opal Beach during the off-season, it seems like the perfect chance to begin fresh after a messy divorce. But when she becomes drawn into the mysterious disappearance of a girl thirty years before, Allison realizes the gorgeous homes of Opal Beach hide dark secrets. And the truth of that long-ago summer is not even the most shocking part of all…

 

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

Missing girls and cold cases make me want to hit that request button on Netgalley lightning fast.

 

For me, this was a solid 3 star book. When you read a lot of mysteries- not a whole lot surprises you. So I have to say that Tara Laskowski was not breaking any new ground truly in what happened to Maureen- but I liked the way she put the story together.

 

What I liked:

That cover. That house is beautiful. Plus the cover hints at darkness in this town.

Allison and Maureen. Both of them are dealing with the cards that life has dealt them and I enjoyed both of their stories.

The ending! Not bad at all.

 

Bottom line: Solid writing. I would be interested to see if Tara will take the ending of this book and have it develop in a series.
