When All the Girls Have Gone by Jayne Ann Krentz

When All the Girls Have Gone by Jayne Ann Krentz

Charlotte is really upset. Her step-sister Jocelyn’s best friend, Louise, is found dead of an overdose in her condo and Charlotte can’t tell her step-sister because Jocelyn is away at a technology free retreat in the Caribbean. Charlotte becomes more upset when she finds out that Louise’s cousin hired a private investigator to look into Louise’s death because he knows that despite a rough patch years ago she would never touch drugs again. As things around Louise’s death become odder and odder Charlotte becomes worried about her step-sister. That’s when the investigator discovers that Jocelyn checked into the retreat but left shortly after. Is Jocelyn on the run? Why? Is she safe? What is going on that is causing the members of Jocelyn’s investment club to disappear?

Fair warning that this is romantic suspense — and if you’re familiar with the author you already know that! Charlotte and Max, the private investigator, start working together closely and sparks fly. There are a lot of red herrings and dead end avenues in the investigation but that just adds to the suspense. And the relationship that builds between homebody Charlotte and Max, another homebody at heart, is refreshing. I enjoyed it, but I think I would have liked it more if I read it. This is one of those rare occasions where I didn’t love the audiobook.
