About this deal

Missing Molly is about a woman, Rachel Holloway, that witnessed a tragic incident when she was just at the age of 9 years old, wherein a family was brutally murdered at the comforts of their own home. When Simon and his next-door neighbor Molly play hide-and-seek, he cannot find her anywhere until a strange girl in a big hat, dark glasses, and a feather boa appears at the door. Problem: Rachel IS Molly Forester, the young girl who disappeared years ago after the massacre of her entire family. Which leaves us asking, why did Garrett put up that reward money and needlessly involve himself in the case back in 2006?

But right before their meeting, her fear—of her brother, of revisiting that life, of retribution—wins, and she backs out. Run Time Reads is a series that I put together to share my thoughts about the audiobooks I listen to on my runs. It’s kind of crazy that it’s taken so long to see the husband and wife who’ve lost their son finally unite on something and take action together. I wish we spent more time with Molly's story unraveling than Rachel being nervous about the paper releasing this podcast. I love a good psychological thriller, and even more so when I can listen to the voices play it out while I drive.One plot hole that people keep pointing out is Rachel inviting the bad guy, the murderer of her family, to dinner at her own house, fully knowing who he is and what he is capable of (which protective, sane mother would do this? The book is just 'ok' at best and there are very annoying elements to it that make it a frustrating listen.

Lisa Jahn-Clough has written and illustrated a number of books for young children, including Alicia Has a Bad Day, My Friend and I, Missing Molly, Simon and Molly Plus Hester, and On the Hill, as well as her debut young adult novel Country Girl, City Girl.I got the audiobook version of Missing Molly, which is quite possibly the only reason why I was able to finish listening to it.
