Two years ago, Adrienne’s best friend walked out of her life. One week ago, she left Adrienne a desperate, muffled voicemail. Adrienne never called back.
Now Dakota is missing. She left behind a string of broken hearts, a flurry of rumors, and a suicide note.
Adrienne can’t stop obsessing over what might have happened if she’d answered Dakota’s call. And she’s increasingly convinced that Dakota must still be alive.
Maybe finding and saving Dakota is the only way Adrienne can save herself.
Or maybe it’s too late for them both.
I love Lauren Strasnick’s writing. I’ve read her two previous novels and have loved them both. So naturally I was excited when Then You Were Gone showed up on my doorstep. It took me awhile before I really got into Then You Were Gone, but once I did, I couldn’t stop reading.
Then You Were Gone tugs right at your heart. Adrienne’s concern for Dakota, despite not being friends with her for a couple years, was completely understandable. One of the reasons I love Strasnick’s writing is that it’s always so real. This book was no different. The characters were all fantastically written, which added even more to the already amazing story.
Every single chapter of this novel left me wanting more. The chapters are short, but that’s not why. It seems like every chapter Adrienne was discovering more and more information to solve the mystery. I loved solving the mystery with Adrienne.
Then You Were Gone was fantastic. I highly recommend it. It’s a fast-paced, emotional novel that is difficult to get out of your head. Strasnick is an immensely talented author, and I can’t wait to read her next book.
