Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

I have so many books on my TBR, I could do Goodreads Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and so on.

Today I am showcasing a book that has been on my TBR for over a year, but I am just getting to it.

The Last Time She Saw Him (Julia Gooden Mystery #1)

by Jane Haseldine

The Last Time She Saw Him (Julia Gooden Mystery, #1)

From Goodreads: In Jane Haseldine’s gripping and brilliantly crafted debut, a reporter searching for her kidnapped son must untangle the connection to her brother’s long-ago disappearance.

Julia Gooden remembers nothing about the worst night of her life. Thirty years ago, her nine-year-old brother Ben—the person who promised he would always protect her—was abducted from the room they shared. Try as she might to recall any clue or detail, there is a black hole where Julia’s memories of that terrible event should be.

Now a crime reporter at a Detroit newspaper, Julia tries to give others the closure she’s never found. But guilt and grief over Ben’s disappearance have left her fearful that whoever took her brother is going to come back. Nowhere seems safe—not the city, not the suburbs, not even the secluded lake town where she plans to raise her children. And then, on the anniversary of Ben’s disappearance, Julia’s worst fears are realized when her two-year-old son, Will, is snatched from his bed.

Convinced that the crimes are related, Julia tries to piece together memories from her final day with Ben. Are the sudden reminders of her brother clues that will lead her to her son’s abductor, or merely coincidence? Julia knows she has hours at best to find Will alive, but the deeper she digs, the more personal and terrifying the battle becomes, and an undying promise may be her only hope of saving herself and her son.

This is the first in the series and the fourth one is available on Netgalley right now. I am listening to this one and really enjoying it. I should be reviewing it soon.

Does this entice you to pick it up? Have a great day everyone.

Or it is an enjoyable book. 🙂😉
