Goodreads Description:

Out for a hike one scorching afternoon in Sycamore, Arizona, a newcomer to town stumbles across what appear to be human remains embedded in the wall of a dry desert ravine. As news of the discovery makes its way around town, Sycamore’s longtime residents fear the bones may belong to Jess Winters, the teenage girl who disappeared suddenly some eighteen years earlier, an unsolved mystery that has soaked into the porous rock of the town and haunted it ever since. In the days it takes the authorities to make an identification, the residents rekindle stories, rumors, and recollections both painful and poignant as they revisit Jess’s troubled history. In resurrecting the past, the people of Sycamore will find clarity, unexpected possibility, and a way forward for their lives.

A crime’s occurred in the small town of Sycamore, AZ, and everyone has an opinion on what happened. I love a book that is told from multiple perspectives, but I really had to pay attention to this one! Sycamore started out with a captivating bang and then started to fizzle out. There was a lot of filler before the big reveal. I was ready for this book to wrap it up – a depressing story with too much closure.

Well, this is definitely the month of missing girls. Not exactly sure how we ended up with three novels centered around missing girls, but it happened, and they are all very different despite a central theme. This is a good one – but too many extraneous characters for me.
