Missing Pieces by Heather Gudenkauf

Setting: Penny Gate, Iowa
Genre: Mystery/Suspense
Publisher: MIRA
Release Date: August 9, 2016

Missing Pieces is now out in paperback, and like many of Heather Gudenkauf's novels, this one is going to keep you up till the wee hours.

Sarah Quinlan knows her husband Jack has never forgotten his mother's death. Raised by his aunt and uncle, Jack rarely returns to his hometown. He only does so now when he learns his aunt has taken a bad fall. They arrive in Penny Gate and soon get caught up in a mystery. Jack's aunt apparently didn't fall, she was attacked. The aunt soon dies while in the hospital. When Jack's sister is accused of her murder, Sarah begins looking into the aunt's death. The more she learns about the Quinlan family's past, the more she finds that nothing is as she thought it was.

There is a touch of romance in this book, but not enough for me to call it a romantic suspense novel. It is primarily about the aunt's death and the family's history. I won't say the conclusion surprised me, as I'd figured out part of it. Still, there were shocking moments that made this an incredible read.
