Still Mine by Amy Stuart

Title: Still Mine 
Author: Amy Stuart 
Publisher: Touchstone 
Release Date: August 16, 2016



Clare is on the run. 

From her past, from her ex, and from her own secrets. When she turns up alone in the remote mining town of Blackmore asking about Shayna Fowles, the local girl who disappeared, everyone wants to know who Clare really is and what she's hiding. As it turns out, she's hiding a lot, including what ties her to Shayna in the first place. But everyone in this place is hiding something from Jared, Shayna's golden-haired ex-husband, to Charlie, the charming small-town drug pusher, to Derek, Shayna's overly involved family doctor, to Louise and Wilfred, her distraught parents.

Did Shayna flee? Was she killed? Is it possible she's still alive?

As Clare uncovers the mysteries around Shayna's disappearance, she must confront her own demons, moving us deeper and deeper into the labyrinth of lies and making us question what it is she's really running from. Twisting and electrifying, this is a get-under-your-skin thriller that will make you question what it means to lose yourself and find yourself in the most unlikely places. 

As soon as I started Still Mine, the creepy feeling hit me.

Clare O'Dey is stopping by a small town to try to figure out what happened to Shayna Fowles. Shayna has disappeared and no one knows what happened to her. She was a junkie and now she is gone. Did the ex-husband kill her? Or did she leave town on her own. After all, Clare knows something about running away. 

Clare left her abusive husband months ago and she has been on the run ever since. She's still afraid he can find her. Taking a job for a mysterious man by the name of Malcolm is a welcome change.

However, Clare has a problem...she has been a junkie herself and in this town if you are not part of the drugs, you aren't welcome to stay.. Posing as a photographer is not enough..Will Clare become an addict again? Or is she going to be able to resist. And of course, is she going to be able to find out the truth about the missing woman? 

There are so many things I like about this book. Like I said the creepy feeling was there. The race to find out what really happened to the missing woman. I wanted Clare to survive this town and move on but at the same time I really liked Jared.

Sadly, there are some things I felt were not answered or followed through with. Was Malcolm a bad guy? What happened to the people left in town? Is Clare's husband going to catch her?

In the end, I'm not sure I was happy with the way things turn out.  The last chapter left me wanting for more.

Cliffhanger: No

3/5 Fangs
