Blurb: In the masterful follow-up to the runaway hit All the Missing Girls, a journalist sets out to find a missing friend, a friend who may never have existed at all.
Confronted by a restraining order and the threat of a lawsuit, failed journalist Leah Stevens needs to get out of Boston when she runs into an old friend, Emmy Grey, who has just left a troubled relationship. Emmy proposes they move to rural Pennsylvania, where Leah can get a teaching position and both women can start again. But their new start is threatened when a woman with an eerie resemblance to Leah is assaulted by the lake, and Emmy disappears days later.
Determined to find Emmy, Leah cooperates with Kyle Donovan, a handsome young police officer on the case. As they investigate her friend’s life for clues, Leah begins to wonder: did she ever really know Emmy at all? With no friends, family, or a digital footprint, the police begin to suspect that there is no Emmy Grey. Soon Leah’s credibility is at stake, and she is forced to revisit her past: the article that ruined her career. To save herself, Leah must uncover the truth about Emmy Grey—and along the way, confront her old demons, find out who she can really trust, and clear her own name.
Everyone in this rural Pennsylvanian town has something to hide—including Leah herself. How do you uncover the truth when you are busy hiding your own?
Erica’s Thoughts: Let me tell you this is the second book I have read from Megan and I like her more and more every book. In this book it seems like you can run from your past but you can truly never escape it. Leah left her life behind, only talks to her family when it is a must but no more. When you want to get away from it all and start anew that is what you do right? You pick up start over new town, new state, new friends, That is what Leah believed she was doing when she moved away with her friend Emmy. Emmy whom she never really knew much about, though that thought doesn’t accrue to her till it is too late. When Emmy goes missing Leah does what she thinks is the right thing to do she reports her missing. Only this opens up so much more than she will ever understand. Kyle is the cop assigned to this missing person case, only this reveals so much than anyone was expecting. Megan does a great job of keeping you guessing on who is hiding what and why.
