Where I Lost Her by T. Greenwood ~ Book Review

Book Description:

In her page-turning new novel, T. Greenwood follows one woman's journey through heartbreak and loss to courage and resolve, as she searches for the truth about a missing child.

Eight years ago, Tess and Jake were considered a power couple of the New York publishing world--happy, in love, planning a family. Failed fertility treatments and a heartbreaking attempt at adoption have fractured their marriage and left Tess edgy and adrift. A visit to friends in rural Vermont throws Tess's world into further chaos when she sees a young, half-dressed child in the middle of the road, who then runs into the woods like a frightened deer.

The entire town begins searching for the little girl. But there are no sightings, no other witnesses, no reports of missing children. As local police and Jake point out, Tess's imagination has played her false before. And yet Tess is compelled to keep looking, not only to save the little girl she can't forget but to salvage her broken heart as well.

Blending her trademark lyrical prose with a superbly crafted and suspenseful narrative, Where I Lost Her is a gripping, haunting novel from a remarkable storyteller.

T. Greenwood jumps right into the story with this book called Where I lost her. We follow Tess as she spots a little girl who was all alone late at night on the back road near where Tess is visiting her friends. I did find the first half of the book a little slow for my liking but it did pick up and I was really interested in finding out if what Tess saw was true or is she was having a mental breakdown. The author does a great job weaving in back history of Tess and Jake keeping us on our toes wondering if the stress of not having a child of their own has spun this tale. I was hooked. Gripping to the story and wondering what was truly happening, who is actually involved and did what and if they would really find this little girl in time.

I give this book a 3.5 out of 5 just because I found that the first half was slow but I do look forward to reading more from this author.
