Book Description
"The day Savannah was killed she was fifteen minutes late to meet me." So begins bookseller favorite Susan Strecker's second novel of twin sisters and the murder that left one twin behind.
Savannah was the popular bad girl skipping school and moving quickly from one boyfriend to the next, so when she didn't meet Cady as promised, Cady wasn't surprised and the truth was Cady was already a bit mad at her. When Cady suddenly becomes short of breath she realizes Savannah is in trouble, but within minutes Savannah is gone.
Years later Cady, now a bestselling author of suspense, spends her time interviewing killers, hoping each interview will help her understand what happened to her sister. Despite Savannah's death, the bond Savannah and Cady share has never been broken. Savannah still comes to Cady, but the clues her sister sends don't add up until a chance encounter while researching her latest novel provides a missing piece of the puzzle.

My Thoughts

A mystery that involves twin sisters where one of them is murdered and the other one finds writing as a way to cope, to get over her death, a way to try to find answers on what happened. Basically that is the premise of this book, not a complicated one at first sight but one that when you read the book you can see the complexity of the situation and how hard is it for Cady to deal with it. Nowhere Girl follows the story of Savannah and Cady Martino and how one day Savannah was supposed to meet Cady and she never made it. Savannah was murdered and years later after becoming a famous Author Cady still searchs for answers on what happened to her sister.

I like how the story is told. I like how the characters are not perfect by any means which make them human. I like how even thought it was a little predictable but it kept interested enough to continue reading and knowing the characters and their journey through the story. A very different mystery from all the other I have read and one I totally recommend.

Thank you St. Martin's Press and Netgalley for providing a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
