Maggie is a single mom, after the murder of her husband years ago. Maggie’s daughter Emma is now entering her first year of college. Maggie tries to not be the kind of mother who must know everything her daughter is doing until Emma disappears. . .
Emma is trying to get on the college newspaper, but Jason the editor tells her that she needs to come up with a killer story. Emma finds out that her roommate is involved in a club where young women are meeting and entertaining elderly men. Emma is going to go undercover to try and get the scoop on what is going on in this club. . .
Maggie is trying to deal with Emma being missing. Because she is not getting much help from the police or the school, Maggie decides to investigate on her own. Maggie receives help from an unexpected source: Gina, her dead husband's old partner. She's a cop and tells Maggie she'll be able to find out more than Maggie would on her own.
Maggie is so close to finding out the real story behind her daughter's disappearance, but runs into some strange twists. . . especially when she discovers that some of the men involved in the club Emma was researching are also college professors. With so much at stake, will Maggie ever be ever to find her daughter?
Kelly Simmons' WHERE SHE WENT shows the love between a mother and her child. I also enjoyed the way she tells the story of Emma trying her best to find the story she is looking for. I truly enjoyed this book. I will be looking for more of Simmons' work in the future.
