Stormi's Review: All the Lovely Children by Andrew Nance
APC PUBLISHER: Red Adept Publishing, LLC RELEASED: February 6, 2018 GENRE: thriller, mystery, suspense LENGTH: 321 pages FORMAT: ebook, paperback
Charly Bloom’s life took a wrong turn that has left her alone and frustrated. When she gets a call from an old flame, she returns to her hometown to investigate the disappearances of four children. The abductions are eerily similar to a set of previous crimes.
Two decades ago, Charly and her two friends decided to play amateur detectives and help find a girl who was stolen from her home. Then, another girl went missing. Clues overlooked by the inept sheriff left only one child to survive: Charly. She managed to fight back and kill the Snatcher. Or so everyone thought…
Is the Snatcher back, or is there a copycat? Charly must face her past and her own personal demons in a race against time to save the latest victim. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
When Charly hears that's girls are going missing again in her home town she knows she has to go back. From 1959 to 1982, this story bounces between the past and present trying to get to the bottom of two cases, that just may be linked in a twisted way. I found this book to be excellent. It was well written, and I loved how it was laid out. From past to present it was like I was reading two mysteries in one. This helped with the buildup through the story. The characters were easy to like, some easy to hate. I was in shock at the end when the truth comes to light. Overall, I enjoyed this story.
