‘Stunning!’ – JO BROWNING WROE

‘Superlative’ – DAVID BALDACCI

We didn’t call the police right away. Later, I would blame myself, wonder if things might have turned out differently if I hadn’t shrugged it off, insisting Dad wasn’t missing missing but just delayed, probably still in the woods looking for Eugene.

Mia Parkson’s life is turned upside down when her stay-at-home dad, the family’s anchor, goes missing. The only witness? Eugene – her younger, nonverbal teenage brother. As the Police struggle for leads, and her mother and twin brother struggle to keep things together at home, Mia gains access to key clues about her father’s disappearance. Headstrong, hyper analytical, and with secrets of her own, she decides to try and solve the case. But could Mia’s impulsive actions be putting her whole family in danger?

A gripping, heart-wrenching, missing-person story, Happiness Falls is about family, the pursuit of happiness and how far we go to protect the ones we love.
