My Review:

When All The Girls Have Gone is the first book by Jayne Ann Krentz that I have read and I really enjoyed it. I was given this opportunity by Penguin's First to Read program. I am very grateful to have been selected to be one of the First to Read When All The Girls Have Gone.

Charlotte Sawyer is looking for her step-sister Jocelyn whom she thought was on a much needed vacation at a tech-free resort. But after discovering that her step-sister’s best friend had OD’d Charlotte can’t contact her sister to give her the bad news about her friend so now she is searching for her sister.

While she is looking for her missing sister Charlotte runs into a PI Max Cutler who was hired by the deceased’s cousin because he doesn’t believe that she OD’d and neither does Charlotte. So Max and Charlotte decide to help each other out on the case since they will both be going down some of the same trails.

Charlotte is worried about her sister she doesn’t know if she is dead or alive. Where is Jocelyn and why has she gone off the grid? Is she connected in any way to the murder of her best friend? Are there any connection between her friend’s murder and what happened to Jocelyn all those years ago in college? Or does it only have to do with the investment club that Jocelyn and her friends created? Is Jocelyn really in danger or did she just decided to leave her old life behind and start a new life somewhere else?

Jayne Ann Krentz knows how to feed you just the right amount of info to keep you guessing and coming back for more. Max and Charlotte work well together as individuals. I wonder how they would work together as a couple. I sure would like to find out. I would also like to know more about Max’s past. I would I also like to follow along with Max on some of his other cases as well to see what adventures he and Charlotte would take us on. If you like a good mystery then you will love When All The Girls Have Gone. I know I did.
