My review of After She’s Gone by Maggie James

Lori Golden’s family have had more than their fair share of troubles. But through it all, Lori and her sister, Jessie, have always supported each other. Then Jessie is killed. And Lori’s world turns upside down.  Devastated, Lori struggles to cope with her loss, and to learn to live in a world without her bright, bubbly sister by her side. Around her, her already fractured family start to fall apart. And, as Lori and her mother try to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives, secrets long thought buried are coming painfully to light.  Faced with the unthinkable, Lori is forced to ask herself how well she really knows those who are left behind…

This is the second book that I have read by Maggie and I have to admit that I have really enjoyed them both, there were a few bits in this book I wasn’t a huge fan of, but the content is really strong, the plot is good and well paced and I enjoyed the majority of the characters.  I thought Lori was a great character, just wasn’t a huge fan of her mum!  There were quite a few twists and turns and a couple of times I was certain I know who was responsible, only for there to be a sudden twist!  4 stars from me for this one – its out now so worth grabbing your copy when you can!  It’s a great psychological thriller.
