My Girl by Jack Jordan

Summary from Goodreads:

Paige Dawson: the mother of a murdered child and wife to a dead man.

She has nothing left to live for… until she finds her husband’s handgun hidden in their house.

Why did Ryan need a gun? What did he know about their daughter’s death?

Desperate for the truth, Paige begins to unearth her husband’s secrets.

But she has no idea who she is up against, or that her life isn’t hers to gamble – she belongs to me

My Thoughts:

     Paige Dawson has a serious drinking problem…as in blackout drunk almost daily.  But once you realize what she has been through it is understandable.  Ten years ago her only child disappeared and only her arm was ever found and more recently she lost her husband to suicide.

     Paige is self-destructing and doesn’t care one bit if she survives.  She runs from therapy and pushes away everyone that still around who cares for her.  Blackouts, driving drunk and sobering up in jail do nothing to slow her down.  Suddenly though she starts waking up from these blackouts and things around her house are moved around or missing all together…and even though she was drunk she just knows she didn’t do it.

   When Paige finds a gun and cell phone hidden inside her husband’s desk she starts wondering what is really going on and what her husband was involved in.  Did he really commit suicide and did he find something out about their daughter’s disappearance?

     There is not much I can say without giving away major plot points but I will tell you to read this book! Once you start reading this thriller you will not want to put it down and you will NOT believe what happens.   This is definitely a thrill ride!

     Jack Jordan is a really good writer and I am very interested in seeing what else he has written.  I would say that there were a few times in the story that I found certain things to be a little unrealistic but I did not feel that it greatly affected the ability to enjoy the story.  If you are looking for a quick, thrilling read this is one to put on your list!

4/5 stars
