When All The Girls Have Gone by Jayne Ann Krentz

Hardcover, 304 pages
Expected publication: November 29th 2016 by Berkley
Jayne Ann Krentz, the New York Times bestselling author ofSecret Sisters, delivers a thrilling novel of the deceptions we hide behind, the passions we surrender to, and the lengths we’ll go to for the truth...

When Charlotte Sawyer is unable to contact her step-sister, Jocelyn, to tell her that one her closest friends was found dead, she discovers that Jocelyn has vanished.

Beautiful, brilliant—and reckless—Jocelyn has gone off the grid before, but never like this. In a desperate effort to find her, Charlotte joins forces with Max Cutler, a struggling PI who recently moved to Seattle after his previous career as a criminal profiler went down in flames—literally. Burned out, divorced and almost broke, Max needs the job.

After surviving a near-fatal attack, Charlotte and Max turn to Jocelyn’s closest friends, women in a Seattle-based online investment club, for answers. But what they find is chilling…

When her uneasy alliance with Max turns into a full-blown affair, Charlotte has no choice but to trust him with her life. For the shadows of Jocelyn’s past are threatening to consume her—and anyone else who gets in their way...

My Thoughts…

When All The Girls Have Gone is a fast read.     The suspense of who done it, the wondering who the next target is, and the fun of getting to know the ladies in the investment club are all what kept me reading and enjoying every page and chapter.   There wasn’t a huge mystery as to who did it but it was still entertaining to put the pieces together and figure out the history of Charlotte and Jocelyn. 

The romance of Max and Charlotte was my favorite storyline.    I loved that it was a respectful, trusting, and slow moving relationship.   They started as strangers, accepted that they had a mutual goal of solving Louise’s murder, and it moved on from there.   With other PI relationships there is a one up manship but with these two they realized the goal was the same and it was easier to work together instead of keeping secrets.  

In true Krentz ways, there were surprises throughout the story that I never saw coming.   I really enjoyed the story and recommend picking up your own copy.
