Firstly, the storyline has just the right balance of mystery, with the big question mark over what happened to this little girl that Tess swears she saw. Then, there’s the creeping doubt as you read that perhaps she never saw anything at all – could her past be affecting her judgement? And there’s also the element of Tess and Jake’s relationship and what happened when they tried to adopt many years ago – can they survive another stressful situation as a couple?
Where I Lost Her is really well-written and manages to convey the sense of confusion and bewilderment that Tess is feeling, followed by the panic and worry for this mysterious little girl. I liked the conclusion and felt it wasn’t too ridiculous or over-dramatic, which was a big plus, and the characters were believable and interesting. One thing I will say, though, is that I was surprised that any police force would act the way they did in the novel – but then I am in England and I have heard police in America, and the way they conduct themselves, differs hugely between states. They were frustrating men and I disliked them all… apart from one…
I loved every page, racing through the book at a quick speed, and I would 100% read any other releases by T Greenwood – I am pleased to see she has many new releases. So, although this is a new author for me, I hope to familiarise myself with lots of her other novels soon. Definitely recommended.
Many thanks to Corvus Books for providing a copy of this novel on which I chose to write an honest and unbiased review.
It's about a marriage that is falling apart. They tried so long for a baby and everything just failed, and now, they seem to be failing. In all of this Tess sees a child on the road. But is she really a reliable narrator? First, she was drunk. Second, we get to see her whole past slowly emerge, how they wanted to have a baby, how they then tried to adopt. All to make the reader feel like she can not really be trusted. Because others sure seem to think she made it up. But at the same time, she saw the girl! She saw something. Still, there is no trace of a missing child. And that is where the mystery comes in. Is there really a child? And what happened to that child? Where is she? What is going on in those woods? Or did she just make it up?
I did like how Tess never gave up, she kept searching even though some thought her just in want of attention. I did like the support she got from her bestie, she never thought for a moment it was not real.
And as the book moved on the mystery got more suspenseful.
It was a good mystery, nice bit of suspense thrown in too. I also liked the whole doubt thing, because I will not tell you what is real or not. You have to read and see for yourself
That's what grabbed me, the title at first. Reading the blurb enticed me further and I added it to my Amazon wishlist for when it would be released this month (March)
My joy when I received this through the post by Corvus from Kirsty Publicity I was over the moon.
This is a tense fast moving pace of a read.
Mostly centres around Tess, however, it widens out to embrace some other past events in Tess life. Her husband, her marriage and their difficulties in having a child.
It's about the powerful pull of motherhood and all the emotions that surround it.
But, it has a thriller element thrown in which hooks you up and dangles you over the danger, the suspense, and the "did she dream this up!"
Tess is driving, alone, at night, she has to stop suddenly as a small child hale dressed and bleeding steps out in front of her.
Tess gets out to see if she's ok but the child is suddenly startled and leaps off into the woods.
Tess gives chase, but it's too dark, too dense to see.
If you saw this, reported it but there were no witnesses, no one has reported a child missing.
Even your own husband is questioning your belief. How would you feel?
Tess won't give up.
This all happens while visiting friends in the rural parts of Vermount.
The stay is over and her husband is now wanting to return home.
Even they're marriage is rock bottom, 'tis been hanging on a thread.
This is a well written thought out plot that keeps a reader totally asking questions "did she, didn't she"
It's one that kept me riveted to each fabulous page.
Tess is determined to find this little girl, and we're kept on the hook for the entire book. Is there something sinister? Was there a girl? Is she mentally ill? Is she faking it for attention? What's going on?! Well I'm not going to tell you! This is a suspense filled, very believable novel that had me on the edge of my seat, whipping through the pages. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
