Blog Tour Book Review / After the Eclipse by Fran Dorricott

A stunning psychological thriller about loss, sisterhood, and the evil that men do, for readers of Ruth Ware and S.K. Tremeyne

Two solar eclipses. Two missing girls.

Sixteen years ago a little girl was abducted during the darkness of a solar eclipse while her older sister Cassie was supposed to be watching her. She was never seen again. When a local girl goes missing just before the next big eclipse, Cassie - who has returned to her home town to care for her ailing grandmother - suspects the disappearance is connected to her sister: that whoever took Olive is still out there. But she needs to find a way to prove it, and time is running out.

I just could not put this book down!!  This is only my second book that I have marked as 5 stars this year so far.

With this story, we follow Cassie in two different time lines.  You have Cassie when she was younger and at the time when her sister went missing right about the time of an eclipse.  You then have the older Cassie who has returned to  her home town when another girl goes missing, just in time for the next solar eclipse.  There are so many similarities between the disappearance of Cassie's sister and the girl who has just gone missing in the present day that Cassie can't help but thinking that they are linked in some way, so she starts to investigate.

Yes, this story does have aspects that are pretty typical for thrillers but there were a few twists and turns in this story that I really were not expecting and I have to be honest and say that I really did not figure out the ending before it happened.  That one did really surprise me!!

A really surprising thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
