    2.

    3. Thank you to Library Thing and Poolbeg Press for providing me with an e-copy of the The Last Lost Girl by Maria Hoey in exchange for an honest review. This sensitive family drama, set in Ireland, deals with the young lives of the three Brennan sisters: Lilly, Gayle and Jacqueline. The book alternates between two time periods: the early years and thirty-some years later. The plot reveals the disappearance of fifteen-year-old Lilly and the impact this has on her parents and siblings, for the rest [...]


    4. Lost girlsWhat a melancholy story. Lost girls, lost summer days, lost chances and choices - sad and still hopeful. I did enjoy it very much. The ending was twisty, but still satisfying. I will definitely read more of Ms. Hoey's tale.



    5. I was frustrated by this book. I didn't guess the whole truth about Lily, so that was a plus. Unfortunately, though, the big reveal was made in a disappointing manner. Not only was it a bit anticlimactic, but it seemed to render other sections of the book pointless.My biggest problem with this book was that the characters were unlikeable, even before that fateful night. I couldn't sympathize with them, so I couldn't feel their grief. I was just an indifferent observer. Admittedly, by the end of [...]


    6. This is a beautifully written exploration of grief and loss. Jacqueline is determined to find out what happened to her sister, Lilly, who went missing years ago. Still a young child at the time, she has in many ways been frozen at that point time, unable to move forward until she discovers the truth. This story is as much about what happened to Lilly, as it is Jacqueline's journey to find herself. Alternating between the past and present, the story slowly unfolds to reveal a psychological study [...]


    7. This novel kept me guessing until the final chapters. As a first time author, Maria Hoey, has captured the formula for an enticing mystery. I can't wait for her next book to see how she develops. This lovely Irish author has won a fan in me.


    8. Amazing StoryThis is the sort of story I love, a compelling family story , a decades old mystery, characters I care about, a real page turner. I almost hated to finish it. I loved it that much.



    9. The Last Lost Girl by Maria Hoey is a highly recommended family drama and mystery set in Ireland during two time periods.In the summer of 1976 Jacqueline Brennan's fifteen-year-old sister, Lilly, disappeared. Of the Brennan girls, Lilly is the beautiful older sister, Gayle is the middle sister, and eleven-year-old Jacqueline is the youngest. During 1976, Lilly is chaffing under her father's rules and is secretly seeing a boy who works at the carnival. Much like any younger child, Jacqueline secr [...]


    10. Interesting. Intriguing. A fine read for wasting a weekend avoiding responsibility. Not my favorite for the year but certainly not my least favorite. It had a few irritating quirks for me, like the excessive use of first names. The secrets and mystery seems a bit convoluted but not bad.


    11. The Last Lost Girl is about Jacqueline, an Irish woman who's sister ran away in the late 70s. When her father dies, she wants to gain closure and find the answers to her sister's mysterious disappearance. But the truth is very difficult to handle, as those closest to her have secrets.This story just did not maintain my attention. It was very frustrating to see the flashbacks and then drag on into the boring present. The conclusion was a bit ridiculous, but by that time I just wanted it over with [...]


    12. I liked this book well enough although it isn't one I am excited to talk about or recommend to others. This book was a little slow with no real push to solve the mystery of the missing sister. I was also disappointed with the ending since it didn't seem worth all the effort that was put into it.
