Reviewed by Lynette Fowlston for Readers' Favorite

Chasing Amanda by Melissa Foster is an amazing book of suspense and mystery with a touch of paranormal to it. While shopping, Molly Tanner saw a little girl screaming in the back of a car. The man with her said he was her father, and she didn't get what she wanted. Two days later the little girl was found murdered, and Molly was beside herself; she saw the abduction and ignored her premonitions. With her marriage on the rocks over this ordeal, Molly and her family moved to a small rural town. Now nine years later, it is happening all over again. When Tracey, a local girl, comes up missing, Molly refuses to ignore the event. As her clairvoyance kicks in, she is determined this time to find Tracey before anything happens to her. This will either strengthen her marriage, forcing her husband to believe in her, or will destroy it.

I found this book very hard to put down once I started reading. I kept trying to figure out who the kidnapper was, and just as I thought I had the puzzle solved, I'd discovered I was looking in the wrong direction. There are clues throughout the book pointing to several people, but the reader is never sure if they are chasing rabbits or if they have found an actual clue. We do discover the whole town has a secret and there is a surprise twist at the end to tie everything together. This amazing book will satisfy all those readers who love a good thriller. Chasing Amanda is the second book written by Melissa Foster, and like her first book, Megan's Way, is very hard to put down. The author is very versatile in her writing.
