✱✱Book Review✱✱ Good and Gone by Britney King



In this deviously volatile, deliciously creepy thriller from the bestselling author of The Social Affair and HER, a young woman must uncover the haunting truth about the turn of events that left her forever marked…


On a crisp fall morning in Austin, Texas, it is a day no different from any other for young mother Hailey Adams. Until it is. She goes out for her morning jog and does not come back. 

When Hailey turns up weeks later with no recollection of where she was—and either unable—or unwilling—to explain what happened to her, those closest to her first question her mental status and then her motives. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media, as well as her loving husband, the popular fitness influencer begins to have flashbacks. 

But the more Hailey continues to dig, the more reasons she uncovers to keep the truth hidden—from the law, from the media, and especially from her family. She soon realizes she’s not the only one to recently disappear under mysterious circumstances—and her nightmare may be far from over.


Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Britney King has a writing style that pulls you in and holds on tight from page one to the final word of the last page. I guess if I had to put one word to it, I would say her writing style is compelling, and that comes through in spades in this latest thriller. Good and Gone is the kind of story that keeps you right there on the edge of your seat with an ever-increasing tension. The more Hailey uncovers, the more gripping the story gets. This one makes you really think about how much of our lives are out there for the world to see and how vulnerable we are even in the places we're supposed to feel safe - and it's pretty unsettling. I certainly spent a fair amount of time looking over my shoulder, especially when I was alone. But then, that's what I expect from a good thriller, and I have yet to find anything else from this author.
