In How Quickly She Disappears, Elisabeth’s life is haunted by her twin’s disappearance twenty years ago. In 1941, she is living in Alaska with her husband and daughter when a mysterious stranger says he knows where Jacqueline is now. After the stranger is arrested for murder, Elizabeth goes to elaborate lengths to get him to reveal what he knows about Jacqueline’s disappearance.
There are two things I hate: dream sequences and cliffhanger endings. Unfortunately, How Quickly She Disappears has both. The plot sounded so great in the book blurb. However, the book itself just couldn’t deliver. The only part I liked was the setting in rural Alaska. Elisabeth was incredibly poor at making decisions. Other characters went from good to bad for no rational reason (or at least none that were mentioned in the novel.) This tale was just not for me. 2 stars.
Thanks to Berkley Books and Edelweiss+ for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
