April 2017 Debut of the Month.

A clever, convincing, and unexpected tale. 13 year old Julie Whitaker was kidnapped from her bedroom eight years ago, her sister, mother and father, have been unable to move past that dreadful night, however a shock wave hits, blasting them all back into the present. Different names head up the chapters, different tales are told, only Mum speaks in the first person, creating a direct connection to her thoughts and feelings. Amy Gentry writes with a devious pen, things aren’t necessarily hidden, yet a cage of acceptance and preconception bends emotions and rattles ideas, just what is the truth? Even if you expect some of what is hurtling towards you, the writing still ensures that surprises lie in wait, ready to stop you in your tracks. Compelling and achingly satisfying, ‘Good As Gone’ thoroughly provokes, and flings endings and beginnings on their head. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Good as Gone by Amy Gentry

Eight years ago, thirteen-year-old Julie Whitaker was kidnapped from her bedroom in the middle of the night. In the years since, her family have papered over the cracks of their grief - while hoping against hope that Julie is still arrive. And then, one night, the doorbell rings.

'Debut novelist Gentry delivers on genre expectations with crisp, unobtrusive writing and well executed plot twists.' - Kirkus Reviews

'Clever perspective changes give Gentry's debut building suspense...Fans of Paula Hawkin's The Girl on the Train will enjoy the shifting points of view and the complex female characters.' - Booklist

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
