Missing Pieces Book Review

Title: Missing Pieces
Author: Heather Gudenkauf
Published: 2016, MIRA
No. of Pages: 288
Cover Price: $26.99 Hardcover, 11.99 Kindle



Missing Pieces, a thriller by bestselling author, Heather Gudenkauf, tells the story of Jack Quinlan who returns to his hometown, Penny Gate, with his wife Sarah, after 20 years. His Aunt Julia, who raised him after his mother’s death, has had an accident, is in the hospital, and is critical. Although Sarah knows a few things about Jack’s past, while visiting Penny Gate, she discovers that what she thought she knew is mostly lies. Feeling betrayed and angry, she turns to others in the town to get to the truth, and while doing so, gets mixed up in a new murder investigation which puts her life and those of Jack’s family and friends in jeopardy.

The palpable suspense starts with the prologue in this novel, and doesn’t stop until the final pages. Sarah, the protagonist, is likeable, and most wives who have been lied to will be able to relate. Gudenkauf’s portrayal of the main characters is excellent; readers will find they seem very real, and although things are not always as they appear, several will turn up as suspects in not only Julia’s death (which turns out to be a murder) and the murder of Jack’s mother 30 years before.

Well-written, suspenseful, and fascinating, Missing Pieces is difficult to put down. It’s quite fast-moving, and fairly short, so it’s a perfect book to take on a trip or just to escape for a few hours in a quiet corner at home. This book is recommended for anyone who likes a good, suspenseful story without graphic sex, language, and violence. Missing Pieces is definitely a good read.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this novel.
