New Release Review! WHEN ALL THE GIRLS HAVE GONE by Jane Ann Krentz

When All The Girls Have Gone
by Jayne Ann Krentz



Jayne Ann Krentz, the New York Times bestselling author of Secret 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…



A romantic suspense that keeps you guessing until the end–my favorite kind!

When All the Girls Have Gone kept me turning the pages, wondering what exactly was going on. I really liked both main characters, Charlotte and Max, and though their attraction had a bit of insta-feel to it, their chemistry was good and I was willing to go with it. Plus, the focus was really on the mystery more than their relationship, so that helped. Because of the suspense of the story we ended up getting a few more POVs throughout the course of it than I’m used to–a few times things could only be seen from a specific person’s viewpoint, one of the hazards of writing a suspense, I suppose–but since we still got plenty of Max-and-Charlotte time it all worked out. 😉

Somehow this is only the second book I’ve read by Ms. Krentz–not quite sure how that happened, but her lengthy backlist makes me happy since I’ll obviously never run out of future books to read 🙂
