Traveling Sisters Group Read
Two girls taken, one returns.
THE GIRL WHO WAS TAKEN by CHARLIE DONLEA is a gripping, haunting, and perfectly paced suspenseful psychological thriller that had us all totally engaged, entertained, and turning the pages as fast as we could. The pace starts off slow in the beginning, and then the tension and suspense grew stronger with every chapter making it moved into a fast-paced and thrilling read!
CHARLIE DONLEA delivers a well-done, solid, and fascinating story here with well-rounded characters that are believable, even though it’s a disturbing and bizarre storyline. The characters personalities are well-crafted and well-developed having us believing in the characters perspectives which added layers and suspense to the storyline. We see the perspectives of the abductor which adds more tension to the story, the girls who were abducted, the police and mostly we follow along with determined and resourceful Livia who is driven by guilt as she uncovers the truth about what happened to her sister Nicole. The past and future timelines were easy to follow along which kept the story very intriguing.
The medical aspect of this story from Livia’s point of view was extremely interesting, especially for Lindsay, right from the start which was both fascinating, disturbing, and frightening.
CHARLIE DONLEA does an absolutely fantastic job at throwing our suspicions all over the place with the many twists and turns, suspicious characters, and clues that had us running around in circles trying to get to the bottom of this nail biting case.
To sum it all up it was a riveting, enjoyable, suspenseful, fast-paced, quick and easy read with an intense, heart pounding, and the best ending we have ever read yet! Highly recommend!
