One of the things I really liked about Max and Charlotte is they are ordinary people. Neither one is “stunningly attractive.” They both have to work to pay the bills. And they both have broken relationships in their past. They have problems, just like everybody else.
Max is definitely the strong, in charge type, but he doesn’t try to tell Charlotte what to do. Probably because he realizes it would be a waste of time. They both consider themselves plodders and use the phrase “one foot in front of the other” to describe themselves.
They are just likable people.
Now, the mystery. All I can say is Good Grief!
I had it figured out half way through the book.
Nope. I was totally wrong.
Then, I decided it was someone else. How could I have missed that?
Nope, that wasn’t it.
And the plot continued to twist and turn. When the mystery is finally solved and all the questions are answered, I had an “oh, yeah” moment. There was nothing that came out of left field. I felt like I should have seen it all along.
And that makes for a great mystery. It kept me guessing, but all the clues were there.
Jayne Ann Krentz is a great romance author. I have been reading her books for years. However, she is also a wonderful suspense writer. I read her books for the romance and humor, but the plots completely grab me.
I haven’t seen anything that says there will be any sequels, but Max is one of three brothers. I really think (hope) we are going to get a trilogy at least.
When All the Girls Have Gone comes out November 29th. Give yourself an early Christmas present, but make sure you have time to read it. You will not want to put it down.
This book was sent to me by NetGalley in return for an honest review.
When All The Girls Have Gone is the first Jayne Ann Krentz book I’ve read and it was fantastic.
From the first chapter, you can see that some crazy things are about to happen as we start off with an unknown person shooting someone in the chest and making it look like a hunting accident. I was instantly intrigued and wanted to know who these people were and why one of them was killing the other. I think this chapter set a great tone for the rest of the book in regards to the big mystery. The author does a wonderful job drawing you in and making you want to know what is going to happen next.
Our main characters, Charlotte and Max, were very fleshed out and I felt I had a real understanding of who they were. Charlotte is very much on the straight and narrow; she doesn’t do anything spontaneous and she has a very optimistic outlook on life. Max is very guarded and doesn’t see the good in people or the world due to his job. It was nice watching the two of them come together with such opposing views on life. I felt they brought out new sides to each other which made them even more interesting as characters. It also made the romance a good one as there was a lot of push and pull which is something I’m a fan of. I also enjoyed how the romance didn’t completely take over the story.
This book definitely has romantic suspense elements but the romance isn’t too overwhelming which was a nice change of pace. I am a huge romance fan, so it’s definitely different for me to be saying that. It just goes to show you how interesting the mystery/suspense plot line was that I was more interested in that aspect of the story than the romance. The reason this book ended up being 4.5 stars instead of 5 was because I felt their romance progressed a little too fast at the end of the book.
I don’t want to give anything away in regards to the mystery plot, so I will just say that it was incredibly interesting and I’m happy with the way everything wrapped up. Everything about it felt like it could have really happened and it doesn’t seem like the author stretched reality to make everything come together.
Overall, I really enjoyed When All The Girls Have Gone and will definitely be checking out more of this author’s books in the future.
