Read Missing Pieces Online Free - A woman uncovers earth-shattering secrets about her husband's family in this chilling page-turner from New York Times bestselling author Heather Gudenkauf
Sarah Quinlan's husband, Jack, has been haunted for decades by the untimely death of his mother when he was just a teenager, her body found in the cellar of their family farm, the circumstances a mystery. The case rocked the small farm town of Penny Gate, Iowa, where Jack was raised, and for years Jack avoided returning home. But when his beloved aunt Julia is in an accident, hospitalized in a coma, Jack and Sarah are forced to confront the past that they have long evaded.
Upon arriving in Penny Gate, Sarah and Jack are welcomed by the family Jack left behind all those years ago—barely a trace of the wounds that had once devastated them all. But as facts about Julia's accident begin to surface, Sarah realizes that nothing about the Quinlans is what it seems. Caught in a flurry of unanswered questions, Sarah dives deep into the puzzling rabbit hole of Jack's past. But the farther in she climbs, the harder it is for her to get out. And soon she is faced with a deadly truth she may not be prepared for.

Heather Gudenkauf has written quite a few novels and I think I've read all of them or at least the majority of them. I have really enjoyed all of them especially Little Mercies which is my favorite.
Unfortunately for some reason I didn't enjoy Missing Pieces nearly as much as her previous novels....

A Traveling Sister read with Norma, Brenda, Lindsay, Jan, Holly and Linda (sister’s mom!)
This book has been sitting on my kindle shelf for nearly a year now. After Norma's gentle nudge, it was finally time to click on and change the status to “currently reading.” (Or it may have just sat the...

Traveling Sisters Group Read Review by Brenda, Norma, Lindsay, Kaceey, JanB, Linda (Sisters Mom) and Holly
We love how everyone experiences the same book in such differing ways and we really value each other’s opinions. So with that being said this gets 5 Stars for this sister reading experience!...

Missing Pieces by Heather Gudenkauf is a 2016 MIRA publication.
I checked this book out in order to participate in a group read, but I didn’t get around to it in time. But, since I’ve enjoyed several other books by this author, I decided to keep it and read it solo.
How well do you really know yo...

I would like to thank Netgalley for my copy in exchange for an honest review.
If I could sum up this entire book in one word it would be this- meh. While the plot was enough to keep me from giving up, it wasn't anything spectacular as I figured out all the "answers" before the halfway mark. For s...

I never was able to get on an even keel with this story. The premise sounded interesting, but in the execution it ended up coming across as hammy. No real depth to the characters, and the relationship between Sarah and Jack was paper thin. These two have been married for over twenty years, raised...

I couldn't decide between 3.5 or 4 stars!
This was my first Heather Gudenkauf novel and my first traveling sister group read with Brenda, Norma, Kaceey, Lindsay and Jan and Linda (sisters mom)! We had a lot of fun and great discussion comparing notes on this one! Everyone has a fun side and unique...

This was a Traveling Sister Read with Brenda, Norma, Kaceey, Holly, Linda (sisters' mom) and JanB. It was very interesting to read with this wonderful group of women because this book worked for about half of us and didn't work for the other half. I loved discussing everyone's reactions...

This was just OK for me. One of those non-thinker books that didn't hold many surprises but there was enough there to keep me reading.
I know exactly when the author lost me from taking this book more seriously...
It's a pet peeve of mine when authors take extreme liberties that are so no...
