Fourteen-year-old Cynthia woke one morning to discover that her entire family, mother, father, brother had vanished. No note, no trace, no return. Ever. Now, twenty-five years later, she'll learn the devastating truth
This was my first Barclay novel and it sure didn't disappoint! I was gripped from beginning to end; No time for goodbye is a fast paced novel and the drama factor of this novel was out of this world. Personally this is one of my favorite reads of 2016 due to the awesome plot-line and the portrayal of the characters. I particularly liked how Barclay left every chapter with a cliffhanger to keep me reading which worked as i read half the book in a whole day because of Barclays phenomenal writing. Barclay also left a huge twist near the end which was very unexpected. I wasn't very keen on how Barclay gave the answer of what happened to Cynthia's family a bit early as he could used these pages to build up the tension more. But all in all "no time for goodbye" has defiantly built up Barclays reputation and I will certainly be buying more of his books in the future.
Pros= Plot line/ cliffhangers/characters
Cons= Gave away answer to the mystery to early
