Chevy Stevens targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her—and ratchets up the stakes even more in a novel that explores the darkest heart of love and obsession
My Review: I read A LOT of pyschological thrillers and Chevy Steven’s debut Still Missing is one of my favourites so I was delighted to be given the opportunity of reading this book early through Netgalley. It’s not an original story – woman fleeing abusive relationship – woman feeling paranoid and fearing for her life, however Chevy Stevens brings such tension to the characters that you feel their fears, you start to wonder about each character involved – are they who they say they are? What does that character really want? I was gripped from the first page and loved reading both Lindsey and Sophie’s versions of the events. Another winner from Chevy Stevens.
