The Missing Girl by Jenny Quintana Review

I was reading a lot this month, so I don’t know if I was just not in the right headspace for this book, but this wasn’t one of my favorites reads. This novel is a slow-burning mystery, which personally I don’t enjoy. I prefer fast paced, action packed mysteries. So again, maybe this wasn’t the book for me. I was having a hard time getting into the story and felt like it was never going to end.

Having said that, I did enjoy the fact the Anna took it upon herself to investigate the disappearance of her sister, years later. She reminded me of me when I was younger, with all the spying she did as a kid. Even though this might have not been the novel for me, I thought it was stunningly written and was quite atmospheric. 

There isn’t so much a twist at the end, there is a conclusion and that’s about it. Nothing extravagant. If you enjoy slow burning mysteries that are very well written, I have no doubt you will enjoy this book.

Thank you to Pan Macmillan for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


When Anna Flores' adored older sister goes missing as a teenager, Anna copes by disappearing too, just as soon as she can: running as far away from her family as possible and eventually building a life for herself abroad. 

Thirty years later, the death of her mother finally forces Anna to return home. Tasked with sorting through her mother's possessions, she begins to confront not just her mother's death, but also the huge hole Gabriella's disappearance left in her life - and finds herself asking a question she's not allowed herself to ask for years: what really happened to her sister?
