    Leave No Trace wasn't much of a thriller or a mystery as a whole but it incorporates a captivating natural setting and it was an interesting exploration of what abandonment looks and feels like within a variety of dynamics. In my opinion, this story requires the reader to suspend disbe...

    My Experience: I started reading Leave No Trace on 6/16/18 and finished it on 6/25/18. This book is wow! and nature with camping for an extended period of time is an interesting topic! I like the concept of being left behind, either through unplanned death, shunned, or abandonment. I l...

    After I read Rose's fantastic review, this book jumped to the next on my tbr - and what a great book it was! Lucas Blackthorn and Maya Stark are two very differently fractured people, brought together when Lucas becomes a patient in the psychiatric facility where Maya works. He's a ...

    ????? / 5 I know everyone raved about her previous book but Leave No Trace is the first book I have read by Mindy Mejia, and after this one I am definitely going back ASAP to read Everything You Want Me to Be. What it's about: Maya is a speech therapist at a psychiatr...

    I was a huge fan of Mejia?s debut and have been impatiently waiting for her next book since late 2016, but man was the wait worth it! This was totally different from Everything You Want Me to Be, I love when authors switch things up and avoid getting caught in a formulaic cycle and M...

    Having been a huge fan of?The Last Act of Hattie Hoffman?I was intrigued to find out how Mindy Mejia would follow that up. Leave No Trace is a gorgeous, emotionally resonant read, once again peppered with beautifully drawn characters who creep up on you. Descriptively this is ...

    Special thanks to Simon & Schuster Canada and NetGalley for a free, electronic ARC of this novel. ?Leave No Trace? is the newest novel by author Mindy Mejia (of ?Everything You Want Me To Be? fame.) Her novels have always seemed to end up on my TBR list, but I have ye...

    This is a very enjoyable read, a different type of story looking at the relationships in families. What a mother is really,not the child's adoring idea of her Mom but the naked truth, Mom without the rose-colored glasses. We meet a speech therapist , Maya Stark, who works in a house f...

    ?Leave No Trace? was quite different from ?Everything You Want Me To Be? but it shared one shining quality, strong, well developed, deeply troubled characters that I desperately wanted to help. Here are some of the key points of the story. Maya Stark is a young woman who has...

    At its core, Leave No Trace is slow burn mystery about the reappearance of a young man who disappeared many years before with his father. Where have they been all this time, and why did they disappear in the first place? Where is his father now? But the book is so much more than th...

    Beautiful, atmospheric, and compelling. My first thought when I finished this one was a simple "wow". No doubt the forests and lakes of the Boundary Waters in Minnesota hide many secrets, but it turns out they could hide people as well. Ten years after he disappeared with his fathe...

    After reading Everything You Want Me to Be last year, I knew this was an author I would follow. In this outing she gives us a very different book but with equally compelling characters. The blurb gives a great snapshot of the story so I won?t get into the plot too much. The MC?s...

    I loved Ms. Mejia?s last book, Everything You Want Me To Be, so I jumped at the opportunity to land an advanced copy of Leave No Trace. For the most part, I really enjoyed this one as well. For me, the start was a little slow. To be fair, I had just read two outstanding books by g...

    EXCERPT: Normally I liked winter - the four-foot drifts, the nostril freezing arctic blasts that drove all the tourists away, leaving the town to the hardy, the survivors who bundled up and shoveled oceans of snow before retreating to our mugs and fleece blankets to wait out the endles...

    Unputdownable! Leave No Trace is a highly addictive psychological thriller that kept me glued to the pages! Lucas Blackthorn was last seen when he was nine years old--he and his father disappeared without a trace. 10 years later, he makes a dramatic reentry into society which...

    Mindy Mejia's talent shines through in Leave No Trace. I loved her previous book as well but she shows that she's clearly not a one trick pony here with a different style altogether. Leave No Trace was beautiful, atmospheric and suspenseful. The characters were well rendered and it was...

    This is a wonderfully atmospheric psychological mystery from Mindy Melia that grips from beginning to end. It is set in Duluth, Minnesota and the vast wild wilderness of the forests and lakes of Boundary Waters, locations which are evoked beautifully with Melia's rich descriptions. Jos...

    Leave No Trace was just a fast and fabulously told joyride from start to finish. I know many of you love Mindy Mejia's books, but I've never had the opportunity to actually pick up one of her novels before this one, and I'm so happy that I did this time. In rural Minnesota, Maya Star...

    THREE STARS AUDIO: Not the best narrator, but not the worst either. I was able to listen to the whole novel without cringing too much. That's always a good thing. This is my second book to read by Mindy Mejia, a super-talented author, and I did enjoy it. As with Everything You Wa...
