Grace Is Gone: A Novel was released in 2020 to positive reviews. The book takes place in Ashford, Cornwall where Meg lives with her daughter Grace. Everyone in town knows them as Grace is a loving mother and Grace, despite her many illnesses, is always upbeat and optimistic. That all changes when Meg is found brutally bludgeoned in her bed and Grace is nowhere to be found. The community is rocked by this and it looks like Meg’s abusive ex is the culprit. A local journalist named Jon is drawn to the story despite his reasons not to be, but he believes finding Meg can help absolve him of some past sins. Meg’s neighbor has her own guilt and helps. As the two work together to find Grace, they find more questions than answers and a story far more twisted than they could have imagined.
