Book Review: And Then She Was Gone (Jack Stratton, #0)

Review of “And Then She Was Gone (Jack Stratton, #0) ”

After trying a few contemporary romance books, I felt sick to the stomach. From my updates feed on Goodreads, I liked this title and added to the to-read shelf.

Jack Stratton is apparently the protagonist of a book series including seven books. I happen to have started at #0. This book tells about how Jack came to be the Jack Stratton.

The story was ok, but the pace was slow. The chapters generally alternated between some ‘detective’ work and ‘home’ time. I would have liked it better if it was only the first one. Perhaps it was done to build the character that he is today.

The narration was more like an advanced version of Famous Five. Not for us oldies. The mystery is good, but not mind-blowing. The end was not very shocking. Still, liked it.

Nonetheless, it was a welcome change, and now I think I should follow this up with something from Jack Reacher series, or re-read any book by Jeffery Archer.

I am going on a vacation for ten days. And may not post on Monday.

I am hoping to share a lot when I come back.

Happy Reading!
