Nowhere Girl by Susan Strecker

"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. @goodreads

This sounded liked a really good book and I'm sure plenty of people will love it, but I just liked it. I didn't hate it and I didn't love it.

Cady's twin sister Savannah was killed when they were teenagers. They never found the person who did it. Now Cady is older, married to Greg, and a writer of murder books.

Cady had a really hard time growing up after Savannah's murder and tried some really bad things herself.

Now, she is trying to write another book and wants to interview a murderer in prison. She says this is for the book, but she has other reasons. Cady had a sort of sixth sense when it came to Savannah and she felt her when she was dying, she feels like she's still with her trying to give her messages.

There are certain parts of the book I just didn't care for, Cady's husband is a jerk and it goes on and on with him. In my opinion he needed to be kicked out of the scene way before he was.

Cady's parents and her brother David never got over the murder and other things either. They never really talked about it. The parents moved away but David stayed there with Cady.

Cady's search brings her back to an old high school crush named Brady that is actually working at the prison. They got pretty close in the book and he was going to help her get an interview inside the prison.

It did not end in no way I thought it would. It was a big let down to me, I already had different scenarios picked out, but it was just not anything like that. I kind of felt like someone else in the book when they found out about the murder. They felt like it was a whole waste of time.

You will just have to read the book for yourself and make your own decisions.

*I would like to thank NETGALLEY and ST. MARTIN'S PRESS for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for my honest review.*
