The Day I Disappeared by Brandi Reeds
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was just what I needed to get me out of my reading slump this month. It was involved, it was twisty, it took me the long way around and turned all my assumptions on their heads. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t wait to finish.
Holly was a victim of a child abduction when she was a young girl, and her abductor was caught and put away for his crimes. Or was he? She can’t remember the days she was missing, but her unexplained behaviors as an adult might just point to something lying just below the surface, waiting for the right time or the right trigger to bring them back.
I liked that this story had a well developed plot and several subplots that all tied together in roundabout ways. The details were rich and the characters all had something to hide.
The audiobook was well done with two narrators alternating between Holly’s perspective and her mother’s perspective from the past. Maybe a little on the slow side but I listened at 2.3 and it was just right for me. (I usually range between 1.5-2.0.) They were able to get the voices of the different characters across really well.
