One Coulee, Two Sides
I was lost in a coulee reading The Disappearing with six of my Traveling Sisters and we ended up in the same coulee but on different sides with a couple of us really enjoying this one and the rest of us struggling a bit with this story.
We all started off in the atmospheric, gothic side of the coulee and really enjoyed the setting here with this small town tale. We were intrigued by the small town, and the truths behind the secrets it carries involving disappearing boys from the past and girls who now have disappeared. We really enjoyed some elements to this small town with their small town gossip and dark rumors that kept us on our toes.
There are a few storylines going on here and a few characters and some of us struggled with keeping them apart. I took so many paths down the coulee that I ended up getting lost in the end and my TS sisters had to show me the way back by filling in the blanks to some of the connections to the story I missed.
The Disappearing is a chilling and twisty story with some shocking twists that kept us interested even though at times we struggled with some of them ringing true for us. I recommend to readers who enjoy a gothic atmospheric read with a small town mystery.
Thank you to Edelweiss, Dutton and Lori Roy for a copy of this title to read and review.
