"A master of the genre."--The Philadelphia Inquirer


Jayne Ann Krentz, the New York Times bestselling author of Secret Sisters, delivers a thrilling novel of the deceptions we hide behind, the passions we surrender to and the lengths we'll go to for the truth...

When Charlotte Sawyer is unable to contact her stepsister, Jocelyn, to tell her that one of her closest friends was found dead, she discovers that Jocelyn has vanished.

Beautiful, brilliant and reckless, Jocelyn has gone off the grid before, but never like this. In a desperate effort to find her, Charlotte joins forces with Max Cutler, a struggling PI who recently moved to Seattle after his previous career as a criminal profiler went down in flames--literally. Burned out, divorced and almost broke, Max needs the job.

After surviving a near-fatal attack, Charlotte and Max turn to Jocelyn's closest friends--women in a Seattle-based online investment club--for answers. But what they find is chilling...

When her uneasy alliance with Max turns into a full-blown affair, Charlotte has no choice but to trust him with her life. For the shadows of Jocelyn's past are threatening to consume her--and anyone else who gets in their way...

Why Did I Listen To When All The Girls Have Gone by Jayne Ann Krentz?

When All The Girls Have Gone by Jayne Ann Krentz is the sort of audiobook that is not in my normal wheelhouse. In all honesty, at this point I cannot even tell you why I downloaded this for review on Netgalley. I have been in a whittle down the queue mood lately. This means that I just want to get my Netgalley ratio up. I do that by listening to the books on audio. Frankly, I am SO glad I listened to this one. Somehow, it just won me over and now a whole new genre feels opened up to me.

What’s The Story Here?

When All The Girls Have Gone follows Charlotte and Max. Charlotte has recently been jilted at the altar. She works at an old folks home and is currently running some writing workshops for the old people. One day, her stepsister, Jocelyn goes off the grid. This is mostly okay, but then Charlotte gets suspicious. Eventually, her path crosses with that of Max Cutler, when she finds out one of Jocelyn’s best friends was found in her apartment dead.

Max is trying to start up a private investigator business in Seattle. Anyways, Max and Charlotte get closer and closer to discovering what actually happened to Jocelyn’s friend, Louise, when they’re basically run off the road. The stakes get pretty high here. THEN THERE’S SOME ROMANCE THAT GOES DOWN.

How Did I Like When All The Girls Have Gone?

This book is SO good. Or at least, it is so compelling. Maybe I just have different standards now? I was easily able to follow what was going on as I listened. Charlotte and Max had me totally invested and pretty on edge while listening. This audiobook made a long commute go by so fast. I never once was bored. Now I want to listen to more romantic suspense books.

How’s The Narration?

Amanda Leigh Cobb narrates the audiobook of When All The Girls Have Gone. I had to listen to this on CD because I borrowed it from the library. I was not able to speed up the narration. Despite this, I really enjoyed what I had listened to. Cobb does a brilliant job. This is an audiobook that goes by really fast.I think it’s a combination of solid action writing and superb narration. Try this one out on audio, you will not be disappointed.

  1. I used to read quite a bit of Krentz, but I haven’t been reading the genre for years. Maybe I’ll pick this one up and get into it again. It sounds like an entertaining read.
