Product Description

Three years ago, Alec McClane and Raegan Devereaux lived every parent’s worst nightmare: their one-year-old daughter, Emma, was abducted from a park when Alec turned his back for just a moment. Emma was never found, and presumed dead. The crushing trauma, plus Alec’s unbearable guilt, ended the couple’s marriage.

Now a four-year-old girl matching Emma’s profile is found wandering a local park. Alec and Raegan are heartbroken to discover she’s not their daughter but are newly motivated to find closure…and each secretly feels desperate to be in the other’s presence again.

Alec suspects his vengeful biological father is behind Emma’s disappearance. But as Raegan investigates other abductions in the area, she sees a pattern—and begins to wonder if Emma’s kidnapping is actually linked to something more sinister.

As Alec and Raegan race to uncover the truth, a long-burning spark rekindles into smoldering passion, and they realize they need each other now more than ever.

Gone, my first Elisabeth Naughton book, was a very good read in the mystery genre. The book was also suspenseful, intriguing and romantic. The two main characters Raegan and Alec faced a gut wrenching situation when their one year old daughter was abducted. However, they weren't portrayed with perfect personlities to invoke reader sympathies. Rather, they were normal people with flaws. Alec was also crippled with guilt and the couple abandoned their marriage, as they couldn't cope with the pain. After three gruelling years, they connect and rekindle their love when circumstances unite them.
Gone kept my attention throughout and the pace was quick. While the book is part of a series involving a particular group of people, it's not a serial. Nor are there vital links that require reading the books in order, apparently. However, there are connections, so I plan to go back to book 1 and check it out. It seems to me, Elisabeth Naughton is a natural story-teller, so I'd like to read more of her work.

4.0 out of 5 stars A second chance romance amid a heinous conspiracy… 12 January 2017
By ZR1000 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the second book in the Deadly Secrets series which can be read as a stand-alone.

Everyone deals with traumatic events differently, sometimes it brings people closer in their shared pain but sometimes it tears relationships apart. For Alec and Raegan McClane the latter came true after their one year old daughter was abducted on Alec’s watch. Their child was never found and the presumption is that she’s dead. Overwhelmed by guilt Alec withdrew into himself and Raegan who needed to lean on the husband who was lost within his own misery suffered alone. Marriage is a partnership and theirs no longer functioned so it ended though not from lack of love of the partners but from the devastating pain of a loss that is a parent’s nightmare. One believes their child is dead the other holds on to hope.

This story opens up three years later; when a four year old female child is found similar to their lost daughter both Alec and Raegan are called in separately by the FBI to try and identify her. Anguish hits them again when it’s not their daughter but something does come out of the encounter, they still have strong feelings for each other and a deep need to reconnect. Raegan, a journalist is re-energized to look into missing children cases and asks Alec who’s a photographer by profession with a good eye for things to assist her, something he can’t say no to for he’s never made amends with her.

Finding similar patterns in some of the cases, connections worth looking into, their investigation begins. Though Raegan has held a steadfast belief in the possibility someday their daughter might come home she wants to do this because other parents are missing children, helping bring even one home would be a balm to her soul. Alec still believes his convicted father was responsible for their child’s abduction and death and worries that Raegan is letting herself in for more heartbreak but her unwavering conviction and the questions that arise as they delve into things make him wonder.

There are deadly secrets being kept that extend back years, a heinous conspiracy to be uncovered threatens the very lives of this couple. The closer they come to the truth the more dangerous the path becomes for people would kill to keep the truth hidden but there’s a strange thing about secrets, they always seek the light of day and this one will shock many. Working together reignites the passion that existed whenever Alex and Raegan were together that has lain dormant, no one else could take the other’s place. Will they get it right this time? Will they support each other when faced with overwhelming emotional pain again? Will answers, be they good or bad, bring them closure?

Wow, this book had an intense storyline with such intricate layers, it provided what I felt was a relatable look at the psychological and emotional responses to crushing loss and the depth of love under all the pain, never forgotten, just waiting for a second chance. Within these pages I found love, loss, betrayal, revenge, fear, acceptance, redemption and finally hope. This was a darker read due to the subject matter that felt realistically portrayed, this reader felt compassion for the characters and became invested in their outcome. The intrigue and suspense of the search for the horrendous truth of a mystery that spanned years kept this reader guessing until the very end. Nicely done!

An advanced reading copy was obtained from the publisher via NetGalley.

3.0 out of 5 stars Altruism Gone Awry 24 January 2017
By Debra Belmudes - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
DISCLOSURE: I received this book from the author/publisher as a Goodreads giveaway. I do not like the romance genre and try to avoid books about children. Given those paramenters, this is my honest assessment of GONE by Elisabeth Naughton.

Alec and Raegan are parents who, now divorced, are trying desparately to move on with their lives after the kidnapping and disappearance of the 1-year old daughter three years ago. Alec sought solice in the bottle, and Raegan continues her desperate search for their daughter by researching similar disappearances of other children in the area. Alec, wanting to make amends to Raegan as part of his 12-step program, agrees to help her in the search for their daughter. In the search for their daughter, they rediscover each other.

The premise of the story has a lot of potential, yet the book has an agonizing slow start. The interaction between Alec and Raegan is stilted, perhaps because each comes from a troubled background and communication does not appear to be one of their strong points. At other times the author skips ahead so rapidly from one scene to another, leaving me to wonder if I skipped a few pages. And, yes I know this is fiction, but can you honestly say the FBI would allow any parent such close access to their child's investigation, including allowing them onsite to the child's potential grave? Lastly I find it inconsistent to read a story about snow so bad that Raegan drives off the road, yet nearby at the Kasdan mansion, they have well manicured green lawns?

Overlooking these flaws, I particularly enjoyed the psychological element provided by Alec's deadbeat father. The author did a nice job of weaving together the disparate characters and backstory into one whopper of an ending!

5.0 out of 5 stars I believe Emma is still alive. 20 January 2017
By Nancy Luebke - Published on
Verified Purchase
Wow, this book grabbed me and held my attention throughout. I received this book for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given this a 5* rating. Because of the violence it is not for the under 18 readers. This was a fast moving, action packed suspense story that addressed the issue of child abduction and some of the effects it has on the families that are involved. This is an issue that is, in fact, in today's news. It is filled with facts and all the emotion you can handle. This book blew me away and I look forward to many more of this author's work.

Gone by Elisabeth Naughton.....Oh my, this is a Gripping, page turning story that pulls on your heartstrings. Three years ago Alec and Raegan's daughters is kidnapped and their marriage can't take the heartache. This story is a romance suspense thriller that hits all the emotion buttons. Elisabeth Naughton is one of my favorite authors, she know how to connect the readers to the story. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

I liked the twists the story line took and especially the surprising and believable ending. The romance seemed superfluous in that it didn't enhance the plot... and I would have rather have just included a description of their increasing trust and closeness. I liked it, it was a "good read" that I won from GoodReads . Great story for reading in airport, waiting in line, or during the down time since it was well written and focused (thus I didn't have to read backwards to remember the storyline/plot.)
