Finished. It was kind of predictable yet had a small plot twist I didn‘t see coming.
My current. Read so far it‘s ok

Toni Murphy and her boyfriend, Ryan, were convicted of murdering Toni's sister, Nicole while they were teenagers. They were sent to prison. Thirty-four years later, Toni is out on parole and back in her hometown. A condition of her parole is that she is not to have any contact with Ryan. But Ryan is convinced he can figure out the truth. Toni's mother doubts that Toni is innocent.
Toni is being released from prison after 16 years locked up for the murder of her younger sister. She says she didn‘t do it. The question: who did? The book alternates from present day to the weeks leading up to the murder. I often find this technique makes a story feel disjointed, but it worked well here. And although I never liked Toni, I still found myself turning the pages to find out what happens next. A satisfying ending!
Toni and her boyfriend Ryan where incarcerated for the crime of murdering her sister as teenagers (they didn‘t, she swears). Now in her thirties Toni is out and trying to pick her life back up but Ryan wants to find who stole their life from them that night.
Another great book. Chevy Stevens has a great way of keeping you interested as you keep turning the pages.
This is about of Toni and Ryan, a high school couple who are committed of murdering Toni's sister. But once they come out these two get out they are thinking of nothing more then solving this murder.
They have a feeling who the actual murder is, now they just need to prove it
Another story I simply couldn‘t put away. I was surprised that there were almost no surprising turns when the story came towards its end and here and there I was doubting that getting relevant information should really be so easy for Toni and Ryan. But that doesn‘t bother my rating. I liked how the story was told and definitely felt for Toni.
Investigation wise it might not be all accurately – but the book definitely gripped me.
As @Shemac77 posted about “Still Missing” which sounded so interesting to me that I immediately browsed my online library‘s catalogue for the author, I found this audiobook.
The initial setting is unusual, at least for me, so I am curious if the story can keep what I imagine it to promise.
Oh, and it‘s ➕1️⃣ on my online library‘s wish list again. So #BookishGoal 48 again. 🤷🏽♀️🙃
Excellent twisty turny thriller.
I lived near Campbell River for 8 years, reading about the island always gives me a thrill.
Every Chevy Stevens I‘ve read so far has been wonderful. Give her a try if you‘re into the thriller genre.
I hate that I have to leave my comfortable spot on the couch with my shake and this page turner to go to the supermarket and then do grad work!
From a purely entertainment perspective, I thought the book was fast-paced and had some fairly developed characters that you could identify with (or in some cases despise). I also thought the book had glimpses of a political commentary on the criminal justice system, and how once you are in the system, it is easy to be trapped there (set in Canada, I was interested to see the similarity to the US system).
This book was a delivery via the Willoughby Book Club. And I loved it! The story is compelling with vivid and complex characters. The use of different time periods (leading up to the event the story focuses on, the central character's time in prison, and the period during which she is searching for evidence and trying to rebuild her life) really shows how a person changes depending on their circumstances. Beautifully written.
