This story, about a woman who can't believe that her daughter committed suicide just doesn't ring true. The "mystery" is convoluted and for a 50 year old woman to suddenly attract not one but two men, even if one of them is using her, is hard to believe. Her mother or someone should have warned her about picking up strange men in a strange place.

Two years ago in a boating accident in Georgian Bay near Toronto, her daughter Devon allegedly drowned, but her body was not recovered. That tiny hope keeps fifty year old recently divorced Canadian Marcy Taggart unable to find closure as she and Devon last saw one another in a regretful scenario; thus the bereft mother clings to and prays for a miracle that her Devon purposely vanished.

Instead of her silver anniversary with Peter, he found solace with another woman, as their marriage ended when Devon disappeared. Thus instead of going with Peter as planned; Marcy travels to Ireland alone to temporarily escape from her mind-numbing grief. In Cork while on a guided tour, she sees a girl she believes is her Devon. She begins a quest to find the girl, but someone ransacks her hotel room followed by warning to leave or else. However, this is her daughter so she refuses to quit her search for the girl who may be Devon.

At times over the top of Knockboy, Marcy's desperation and intense feelings of guilt and regret make this a powerful thriller as her need for closure leads her into all sorts of sinister trouble. Her new companions add eccentric entertainment but fail to add to a mother grieving the loss of her daughter. Marcy's quest leads to a taut tale of danger, but it is her personal tension ripping her soul apart that turns Now You See Her into a great read.

This is the first Joy Fielding book I've read in years. I had read everything she wrote several years ago. This book proved that she still has the ability to keep you interested and unable to predict the outcome.

Another great book from Joy Fielding, I have read almost every one of her books and have yet to be disappointed.
