Thank you to Netgalley for a copy of the eARC in exchange for a fair review!
I am a sucker for mysteries and good thrillers as you all might have figured out by now! So Angie is a private investigator hired to find Nadine six weeks after she disappears. We the readers actually have a pretty good idea of what happens to Nadine as in the beginning the chapters alternate between Nadine and Angie, and then later they switch to Nadine's journal.
Nadine is a teenager who decides to test her parent's love by running away. She is pretty sure neither want her, but she wants to make sure. However, she doesn't get very far before she meets a man who is going to change everything for her.
Meanwhile, Angie is trying to follow in Nadine's shoes and figure out what is/or did happen to her. Along the way her mother passes away and Angie is drawn into her family mystery when she stumbles across a photo of a young girl and the words please forgive me written on the back.
This wasn't a super big mystery or a huge thriller for me. It was a good book and I enjoyed the read. Initially I really didn't care that much about the picture or where the author was going with that, until I realized it was a big part of the story. I thought it was a really good portrayal of predators and how they run their games. The bigger mystery was really about the picture, since we are told the story up to certain point by Angie and Nadine we already know what is happening to Nadine, where she went and the only thing that is a little mystery is she still alive?
