by Melissa Foster
Molly's life is back on track, her son has begun college, and she and her husband have finally rekindled their relationship. Their fresh start is shattered when a seven-year-old girl disappears from a local park near Molly's home. Unable to turn her back on another child and troubled by memories of the past, Molly sets out to find her, jeopardizing the marriage she'd fought so hard to hold together. While unearthing clues and struggling to decipher her visions, Molly discovers another side of Boyds, where the residents--and the land itself--hold potentially lethal secrets, and exposes another side of her husband, one that threatens to tear them apart.

In "Chasing Amanda" Melissa Foster guides us in helping Molly; wife, mother to a teenage son, search for a missing girl. The young girl has disappeared from their quiet, rural community; a place where things like this simply don't happen. For Molly, it's deja vu. Several years earlier, while living in Philadelphia, she witnessed a similar event. She did nothing at that time, and has been tormented by her inaction ever since.
Molly's special gift, or curse, is her clairvoyance. She can sometimes 'see' things that others cannot. In Philadelphia, she failed the little girl, whose body was found shortly after. Now, she promised herself that she would not make that mistake again. Molly persists, using her clairvoyance and sheer stubbornness in an effort to find the child. In doing so, Molly exposes her town's shameful secrets, presenting a conclusion to this story, that I never saw coming!
Melissa Foster's skill with her characters, drew me into the story immediately. The suspense that followed made this book a definite page-turner! By Nanascurse
This review is from: Chasing Amanda (Kindle Edition)
It amazes me that this is only the author's 2nd book and she has hit it 'right on' with both!
Chasing Amanda is such a different story than the author's 1st book so I wasn't sure what to expect. It had me from the 2nd page and in some instances I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. The story was very interesting, not a subject matter you read about often. There are not many books out there where the story is about someone who can "see" things and you can truly immerse yourself in the story, know that it could be real and keep thinking about it for days after you have finished the book.
I'm so glad I read this book and can't wait for the author's next book...keep them coming! Missreadsalot
