About the Book:
Isabel Lincoln is gone. But is she missing? It’s up to Grayson Sykes to find her. Although she is reluctant to track down a woman who may not want to be found, Gray’s search for Isabel Lincoln becomes more complicated and dangerous with every new revelation about the woman’s secrets and the truth she’s hidden from her friends and family. Featuring two complicated women in a dangerous cat and mouse game, Rachel Howzell Hall's And Now She’s Gone explores the nature of secrets — and how violence and fear can lead you to abandon everything in order to survive.
This story is told by two points of view via Gray and Isabel. Gray's story has a before and after, non-linear timeline. This format is usually my favourite but was a big miss for this time around.
There were some twists in this story but the majority was completely inadequate. I found Gray's story-line so frustrating as she was pretty naive and for someone who is supposed to be an investigator it had me shaking my head in disbelief.
This wasn't a bad book, by any means, but I found one of the main characters under developed and it just felt a little flat. I would give this author another try though as I did like the writing style.
Thank you NetGalley, Rachel Howzell Hall and Macmillan-Tor/Forge Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
