    It started with the disappearance of a ten-year-old girl 20+ years ago. This little girl had tried 3 times to run away from an abusive home. Something had gone wrong each time, until evidently it worked. She wasn't the last girl to have gone missing over the years. No one knew there ...

    First a HUGE round of applause to the author J.G. Hetherton for making me stay up half the night flipping pages like a mad woman while nervously twisting my hair and trying to remember to be quiet when I yelled "omg no way" and "what the what"?!" every few pages! Congrats and Thank you...

    Wow! Great first book in a new series from J.G. Hetherton! This one kept me reading quickly to find out what would happen next. A serial killer has been targeting young girls. The killings began in 1988. Laura Chambers, an investigative journalist, becomes involved in looking for t...

    Really strong. So strong, it reminded me of the first Tracy Crosswhite. The missing pieces are an interesting plot trick... not giving us every scene but then ultimately piecing everything together lengthens suspense in a unique way and encourages stickwithitiveness. 4.25 stars! ...

    This book had a logical plot until the end which seemed contrived. The voice was stark and killing descriptions too gruesome for my taste ...

    Full of twists and turns. Everytime I thought I had it figured out, something else would happen. I look forward to reading more by this author. ...

    Last Girl Gone by J.G. Heatherton Laura Chambers Mystery #1 Debut authors are hit or miss but I do believe J.G. Heatherton has a good future if this, his debut novel, is a sample of what he can do. I have to admit that I did not much like investigative journalist Laura Chambers...

    Rating - between 4 and 4.5 stars! Last Girl Gone is the series debut for the Laura Chambers Mystery series by J.G. Hetherton. You may read the synopsis for this book and pass it over thinking it's just another mystery/thriller book. I encourage you NOT to do that and actually pick u...

    At first I found it hard to get into. But in saying that it still kept my interest ? It was very easy to read and predict. ...

    Enjoyable mystery/psychological thriller. Kept me reading to the end although I suspected the twist about halfway through. Not sure Laura Chambers, the reporter/amateur sleuth/protagonist, was quite developed well enough to make me want to read any more books with her as the main chara...

    I can?t believe this was a debut novel! Last Girl Gone was such a powerful start to what I understand will be a new series. JG Hetherton has done a magnificent job of weaving together a nail biting plot that keeps twisting until the end. Because the final twist was similar to a diffe...

    I received an advance copy of this through NetGalley. Laura is a reporter who moved back to her small town after problems at her previous job in Boston. When two girls disappear and one is found dead, she wants the story. This got off to a slow start, but eventually I was very wrapped ...

    Full of twists and turns that I never saw coming, I could not put this book down. There were so many things to love about this book, yet so many things that bothered me. This book's main character, Laura Chambers, is yet another flawed female role, still dealing with events from he...
