Title: Have You Seen This Girl?
Author: Carissa Ann Lynch
Wendi Wise is a troubled young woman who snorts her breakfast through a straw and spends more time in rehab than in the real world…
Her life is seemingly out of control.
But now she has a plan.
That plan involves a sharp set of butcher knives.
She's going back to where all of her troubles began…
Wendi was lured away from a local skating rink, at the age of thirteen, and held captive in a place she calls 'The House of Horrors.' Dumped off blindfolded on the side of a dirt road, Wendi soon discovered that she was addicted to the drugs they fed her while she was captive.
Too scared to go home, and having a new habit to deal with, she hopped on a bus, vanishing from the family she loved.
Vanishing from Flocksdale…
The town of Flocksdale is littered with fliers with a grainy image of young Wendi, and the words 'Have You Seen This Girl?' written below.
Now, eight years later, she's on a mission—a mission to find the mysterious house from her youth and the monsters who dwell inside it.
“This is the end, beautiful friend, the end…”

If you're looking for something very dark, but with a somewhat happy ending, then pick up Have You Seen This Girl?. When Wendi was just a young teenager she was kidnapped and held captive for about 6 months. She went through some of the worst horrors anyone can imagine. She was then released, but told never to tell or her family would be killed. So she left. Now Wendi is grown up. She wants revenge.
Wendi could really be a tragic character and a statistic. But she is very determined and very strong willed. She has big skeletons in her closet, but she is determined to fight through them and win.
This is a love story. I don't want to give away any of the plot. But Wendi does meet someone. He helps her and they do fall in love. I won't say much about him other than that he is strong, able, and very helpful to Wendi when she needs it most. He genuinely cares. At the end of the story there is a happy ending. But there's a lot to get through to get to that happy ending.
I've been reading a lot of darker books lately and this was one of the only ones that to me had a HEA so I loved it. I definitely recommend this book. I give Have You Seen This Girl? 4.5 STARS!

Besides my family, my greatest love in life is books. Reading them, writing them, holding them, smelling them…well, you get the idea. I’ve always loved to read, and some of my earliest childhood memories are me, tucked away in my room, lost in a good book. I received a five dollar allowance each week, and I always — always — spent it on books. My love affair with writing started early, but it mostly involved journaling and writing silly poems. Several years ago, I didn’t have a book to read so I decided on a whim to write my own story, something I’d like to read. It turned out to be harder than I thought, but from that point on I was hooked. My first and second books were released by Sarah Book Publishing: This Is Not About Love and Grayson’s Ridge. I’m a total genre-hopper. Basically, I like to write what I like to read: a little bit of everything! I reside in Floyds Knobs, Indiana with my husband, three children, and massive collection of books. I have a degree in psychology and worked as a counselor.
