Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner ~ #Mystery #BookReview

26141649The premise of this story, while not new or fresh, was interesting. (It’s in the title, so I won’t consider it a spoiler to say that a young woman goes missing. Surprise!) The writing, pacing, and characters were all good. The mystery was suspenseful and not predictable.

There were plenty of twists that kept me guessing, and many of my theories proved wrong, which I always enjoy, but for some reason, this just wasn’t a 5 star book for me. I can’t put my finger on the reason why. If I had to guess, I’d say that more needed to be done to make me care about the fate of the missing girl. That, and all the women in the story  seemed a little too concerned with men. However, it was a good book that kept me guessing. 4 stars!
