February 2017 Debut of the Month.
A clever, suspense-filled story told in reverse, from day 15 through to day 1, and boy does the premise work! Nicolette returns home after a letter from her dementia-ravaged father suggests an answer to the disappearance of her best friend ten years before. A second girl goes missing while Nicolette is home, and as the story twists backwards through time, how on earth it didn't trip over itself I really don't know. Megan Miranda, in her first novel for adults, skilfully handles the tour through time, I felt completely absorbed and focused as each new tidbit of information changed my feelings and sent my thoughts spinning. As the story increased in intensity and neared the climax, I almost couldn't turn the pages quickly enough. ‘All the Missing Girls’ hooked me from the get-go, it pushed all of my thoughts into one big pot of edgy, stimulating tension, ensuring a great, great read. ~ Liz Robinson

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda
It's been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared without trace. Then a letter from her father arrives - 'I need to talk to you. That girl. I saw that girl.' Has her father's dementia worsened, or has he really seen Corinne? Returning home, Nicolette must finally face what happened on that terrible night all those years ago. Then, another young woman goes missing, almost to the day of the anniversary of when Corinne vanished. And like ten years ago, the whole town is a suspect. Told backwards - Day 15 to Day 1 - Nicolette works to unravel the truth, revealing shocking secrets about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne. Like nothing you've ever read before, All the Missing Girls is a brilliantly plotted debut thriller that will leave you breathless.
'In All the Missing Girls Megan Miranda leads readers back through the past of a small town, enfolding them in a slow, tense nightmare of suspicion, menace, and tangled motives. A twisty, compulsive read - I loved it.' Ruth Ware, author of In a Dark, Dark Wood
'All the Missing Girls is a smart, suspenseful, and emotionally complex thriller. Told in reverse, this story will make you want to lock the doors, turn off the phone, and read until the last satisfying page.' Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author of The Ex
'Extremely interesting...a novel that will probably be called Hitchcockian' New York Times, editor's pick
'Megan Miranda's utterly gripping and original All the Missing Girls keeps you off balance in the most perfect way. I was held hostage by the book from the first page to the stunning conclusion. This literally backward tale is a winner.' Lisa Lutz, author of The Passenger and How to Start a Fire
'As original as it is addictive, this story puts a knot in your gut from the opening pages. Vividly rendered, psychologically complex, All The Missing Girls is, above all, totally gripping.' Tim Johnston, New York Times bestselling author of Descent
'Are you paying attention? You'll need to be; this thriller will test your brain with its reverse chronological structure, and it's a page-turner to boot.' Elle Magazine
'All the Missing Girls is set to become one of the best books of 2016' Los Angeles Review of Books
