I listened to Good As Gone, by Amy Gentry. Though it held my interest, ultimately it was disappointing.
Like two other books I read recently--Hollie Overton's Baby Doll and Anna Snoeksta's Only Daughter--the story involves the return of a missing, believed dead daughter to her family after an abduction. In both of those, however, the reader knows upfront if the woman who returns is an imposter or the true daughter; in Good As Gone, it's a question to be resolved.
It was the best of the three (I disliked Only Daughter so much that I returned it), but I didn't like the two main characters (the mother and the daughter), and the way the book was structured didn't work for me. Like so many books these days, it alternated between their two stories, but the daughter's sections didn't follow a coherent timeline; a lot of it wasn't especially relevant. Consequently, at the end there needed to be a rather lengthy daughter section filled with explanations, which was pretty much an information dump.
