Look for Her
by Emily Winslow
on Tour February 12 - March 16, 2018
Lilling might seem like an idyllic English village, but it’s home to a dark history. In 1976, a teenage girl named Annalise Wood disappeared, and though her body was later discovered, the culprit was never found. Decades later, Annalise maintains a perverse kind of celebrity, and is still the focus of grief, speculation, and for one young woman, a disturbing, escalating jealousy.
When DNA linked to the Annalise murder unexpectedly surfaces, cold case detective Morris Keene and his former partner, Chloe Frohmann, hope to finally bring closure to this traumatized community. But the new evidence instead undoes the case's only certainty: the buried body that had long ago been confidently identified as Annalise may be someone else entirely, and instead of answers, the investigators face only new puzzles.
Whose body was unearthed all those years ago, and what happened to the real Annalise? Is someone interfering with the investigation? And is there a link to a present-day drowning with eerie connections? With piercing insight and shocking twists, Emily Winslow explores the dark side of sensationalized crime in this haunting psychological thriller.
Trade Reviews:“An intriguing, suspenseful, and briskly paced story with complex characters, evocative descriptions of England's Cambridgeshire, plenty of clever misdirection, and a satisfying ending.” —Kirkus Reviews

I was sent this book in part of a blog tour. My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review.
This is actually the fourth book in the Keene and Frohmann series. However; this can be read as a standalone. I read this without reading the others, and I did not have any problems getting into the story.
I know I have an ARC, and it may change…but this cover is beautiful! It was the first thing that grabbed my attention and made me want to pick this up.
I am not a huge fan of multiple point of views, and this was not the exception. There were so many different POV and characters, I found it hard to really get into the story. There were several twists and turns along the way to keep your interest. I was more interested in the cold case details. I am not as huge of a fan of detective novels which I do feel this followed more so than the case itself. Maybe one of the first two books follows the events of kidnapping/murder. If they do, I would have liked to read those first (but I am not sure the plot for books one and two).
Overall, this was a good mystery and I am glad I gave it a chance. I liked how everything unfolded at the end.
