#BookReview The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel #thriller #Fridayreads

​Lane went to live with her grandparents after her mother’s death but left their care whilst she was still a teenager, now she returns after getting a call that her cousin, Allegra, is missing. Lane tries to piece together what happened to Allegra in the dysfunction that is her family.

Not an easy read due to the themes of incest and grooming in this hard-hitting novel about a fundamentally flawed family. However, the mystery of what happened to Allegra kept me turning the pages and I read this book in one sitting. As bleak as the story was it did end on a note of hope and the complex characters made it a worthwhile read.

A definite recommendation from me.
