Not That I Could Tell by Jessica Strawser
Not That I Could Tell by Jessica Strawser was a gripping psychological thriller that sent chills up my spine during the climax.
The story focused around a neighborhood and a group of woman in the neighborhood who were sitting around a fire pit one night swapping stories and the next day one of them was gone. Gone, with her children, without any clues and a confused ex husband
looking for her and the children. The rest of the woman were questioned again and again. Various theories were spouted but without evidence...there was no closure for the women.
book is written in various voices mostly Clara and Izzy, although some of the thoughts are from Kristen (the missing mother). The story goes back and forth opening up various avenues for the reader to ponder. What I found most remarkable is that I was
glad I was along for the ride. I was enjoying the story so much and was wondering so much about what was going to happen, that I really didn’t want the book to end and I read it very slowly (for me). It is a rare occurrence in my world to
have that happen. I liked the slow reveal and the main characters.
Not That I Could Tell by Jessica Strawser was a great read, with good writing, characters and a plotline
that built suspense as the book moved along!
