One Night Gone
One Night Gone | Tara Laskowski
7 posts | 5 read | 6 to read
One sultry summer in the 1980s, a teenager arrived in the wealthy town of Opal Beach to start her life anewto achieve her destiny. But before the summer was up, she vanished. Decades later, when Allison Simpson is offered the opportunity to house-sit in Opal Beach, it seems like the perfect chance to regroup and start fresh after a messy divorce. Its the off-season, after all, which means peace and quiet on the Jersey Shore, and more important for Allison, safety. But when Allison becomes drawn into the story of a girl who disappeared from town thirty years before, she begins to realize that Opal Beach isnt as idyllic as it seems. The walls of the gorgeous homes hide dark secrets. And as Allison digs deeper into the mystery, she uncovers not only the shocking truth, but finds herself caught in the middle of a twisted plot. Part electric coming-of-age story and part breathtaking mystery, One Night Gone is an atmospheric, suspenseful novel about power, privilege and, ultimately, sisterhood.

Mehso-so

I was excited about this book because three of my favorite authors blurbed it as being basically fantastic. But, it was a bit of a turkey for me. I think the setting, a beach town in fall/winter, could have been used more effectively. I also didn‘t feel that invested in the 1980s MC, which I think is because she was written in third person POV, instead of first person like the current-day MC. It wasn‘t great. It wasn‘t terrible. Just meh.

Karisa Sorry the book was meh, but that is the cutest turkey ever! 3mo
Kshakal That turkey is adorable!! 3mo

Most everyone else is giving this good to really good reviews. I'm clearly in the minority so I hope this doesn't discourage everyone. I don't think this was poorly written, just the story was kind of TV movie for me. It didn't really add anything to the genre, nor detract. It was just kind of there.

"When Dolores's team- the Manchester County Vixens - was announced, the cheers were deafening, echoing off the gymnasium walls. Derby names were a big thing - all the women had them stenciled on the back of their jerseys. Dolores was called Spine Cracker. "She has her master's in library science. Get it?" Tammy said. "

Hazel0303 I have this one too - I hope it‘s good!! 8mo
