    I recently purchased the book Looking for Peyton Place , only to find that there are pages missing and some are doubled . Very confusing .Page 261 is when the repeat starts ,then goes back to page 357. What happened to the missing pages . By the way I did enjoy the read kind of ended.

      When you click a link on this site and make a purchase, you’re actually buying it through Amazon, not us. Please handle all disputes with Amazon through their Returns Center (you can find it under “Help” on their website). We hope you get this worked out, as there’s nothing worse than a book with missing pages.
