Book Club Friday-- Still Missing.

GoodReads Synopsis: On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old realtor, had three goals—sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.  Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of a psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape—her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor.

My Thoughts:  This book was almost impossible to put down.  I was reading it at any chance I got because I just HAD to find out what happened.  I love how she wrote it-- from Annie's sessions with her therapist after she spent a year as a captive in a remote cabin.  She both described her time at the cabin and also her current life.  You frequently got the past story plus the present day situations in one chapter.  It worked SO well to keep both stories within the story moving.  I also loved how there was still suspense in the story even though you know she got away from the captor somehow, since she's obviously in therapy about it.  I 100% recommend this book and can't wait to read more from Chevy Stevens!


  1. I felt the exact same way when I read this one. Glad you liked it, too!
    I find myself remembering this book when I hear about things like those 3 girls that were held captive by Ariel Castro and remembering some of the stuff this book talked about. It's definitely a different book.

  2. This sounds good. Will need to add toy list. You should do a post of your fave 5 books you read this year!!
