When Charlotte Sawyer picks up her step-sister Jocelyn's mail she finds a package from Jocelyn’s best friend Louise. In trying to contact Louise she finds out she's dead. Charlotte may not know her step-sisters friends all that well but she knows there is no way Louise could have OD’d.
When she goes to Louise’s apartment to pick up some papers for Jocelyn she meets Max Cutler, the private investigator hired to look into Jocelyn’s death. After Charlotte discovers her step-sister isn’t where she said she’d be - a month long tech free retreat - she teams up with Max to find her worried that whoever killed Louise may be after Jocelyn next.

When All The Girls Have Gone was an enjoyable read but while I enjoyed the romance between Max and Charlotte, I found the mystery/suspense a bit lacking. It wasn't hard to figure out who the killer was, it was more of finding out the why but the more I read the easier it was to piece together. There were a few surprises thrown in though to complicate matters - which I liked.

All in all, I'd say read this if you're in the mood for a cozy mystery!

I received this audio book as a Good Reads Giveaway for review.

The narrator had a pleasant voice which is important when listening to audio books.
The story begins rather mysteriously with a murder but then moves on to the disappearance of a woman. Soon, the cousin of missing woman teams up with a PI to uncover the events which led to the disappearance after the death of a close friend. The past may be something people try to forget but somehow it always has a way of resurfacing if not resolved. Some secrets are dangerous and could get someone killed just to protect it.
Suspenseful! ( )

When All the Girls Have Gone by Jayne Ann Krentz is an intriguing mystery with quite a few unexpected twists and turns.

Hired to investigate Louise Flint's death, private investigator Max Cutler is not as convinced as the police that Louise's death was an accidental or deliberate overdose. The evidence he uncovers points to murder, but trying to find a motive for the crime proves somewhat daunting. After discovering some perplexing information about her activities immediately preceding her death, Max teams up with Charlotte Sawyer, whose stepsister Jocelyn Pruett was a close friend of Louise. Jocelyn is also currently missing which leaves Max and Charlotte wondering whether or not her disappearance is connected to Louise's death. After learning that Jocelyn and Louise belong to a investment club with three other women, Max and Charlotte are rather puzzled by their reactions to the news of Louise's death and Jocelyn's disappearance. It quickly becomes apparent the remaining members of the investment group might be in danger, but Max and Charlotte are having trouble understanding why the women have been targeted by the killer.

Having recently relocated to Washington following his divorce and resignation from his job as a profiler, Max is struggling to get his private investigation business off the ground. Despite the circumstances that resulted in his career change, he is still an impeccable investigator with finely honed instincts. It does not take long for him to realize that Louise's death was most likely foul play but his investigation hits a dead end almost immediately. While some of Max's investigative techniques are a little unorthodox, he is a slow, methodical investigator who turns to good old fashioned detective work to help solve the case.

Fresh off a break up just days before her wedding, Charlotte does not exactly trust her instincts when she first meets Max. She is a little naive and trusting but she is a genuinely kindhearted person who takes people at face value. Charlotte is very concerned about Jocelyn's suspected disappearance but she has complete faith that her stepsister has done nothing wrong. Convinced Jocelyn is in danger, she refuses to let Max shut her out of the investigation and she is surprisingly resourceful as they track down clues and follow up on leads.

Although the mystery aspect of the storyline is interesting, it is fairly easy to put the pieces of the puzzle together. There is little attempt to hide the identity of the villain but the motive for the crimes is obscured for much of the novel. A couple of secondary story arcs add suspense to the main storyline but how these threads fit into the original investigation is quite difficult to discern. The plot feels a little disjointed and slow-paced for the first half of the novel, but the second half of the story moves at a fairly brisk pace once the various arcs begin to intertwine. The novel hurtles to a fairly dramatic conclusion with plenty of plot twists that are impossible to predict.

When All the Girls Have Gone is an enjoyable mystery that will appeal to fans of the genre. The characters are vibrantly developed and easy to like. The romance element is understated but believable. While the investigation into Louise's death and Jocelyn's disappearance are fully resolved by the novel's conclusion, the lack of closure for events from Max's past seem to indicate When All the Girls Have Gone is the first installment in a new series from Jayne Ann Krentz.
