Still Missing - Chevy Stevens

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.
Still Missing is that rare debut find--a shocking, visceral, brutal and beautifully crafted debut novel.


My Opinion:
For a debut author, Chevy knocked my socks off!
I really loved this book, and absorbed every word of it. The entire story had me on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what happened next, and who did it. Oh my gosh, the ending... was amazing! Totally not a thing in my wildest dreams, but exactly what happened. I love this book. I really do.
I hope this isn't the last I read from Chevy. She has a gift.
For sure the one to beat for August!

  1. This book sounds riveting! Hard to believe it's the author's debut! I, too, hope she writes more! Your review is terrific - you don't give anyhting major away but let me know it's a must read!
    Thank you!

  2. I will love this. It's like a book that I would always pick. Thanks for the review.

  3. Sounds interesting. I love reading novels. Thanks for the review.

    By the way, thanks for leaving your comment on my post about drug addiction. I've never been an addict but I saw how my Uncle suffers. He was drug dependent for years and our whole family was affected but we didn't leave him. Now he is a clean man but is suffering from the complications caused by meth. His kidney was greatly affected and so as his liver.

    I am now following this site. Have a great day!

  4. I can't wait to read this one also Freda. It has been a fantastic debut, I haven't read any reviews that didn't like it, there are diff opinions on the ending though.

  5. Sounds like one I shouldn't pass up. I know this is shallow, but the cover just wasn't attracting my attention. I can't overlook such a enthusiastic review.

  6. I didn't expect the ending, and even though it took me awhile to warm up to Annie, I thought it was a great debut novel.

  7. You really make this one sound intriguing Freda, I will have to pick up a copy. Thanks for the great review.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
