Until We Are Lost
 is a dark and twisting story that will keep you rapidly reading until the end.  There is a lot of switching from present-day to the past and sometimes it was difficult to figure out what time period we were in but overall it was a unique and powerful story.

Tara and Sophie are twins and helped each other through the problems in their lives.  But Sophie is missing and Tara desperately wants to find her.  Sophie is the brash and extroverted twin and Tara is introverted and doesn't want to cause problems for anyone.  Tara is also seeing a psychologist to try to get help figuring out why she has no memory of the six months after their father died in a fire and she knows that Sophie can help.  Can the doctor help Tara regain her memory of those 6 months and the memory of the trauma she faced growing up?  And will she be able to find Sophie again - the one person that she knows will always protect her.

Until We Are Lost is a great book full of twists and turns.  Even if you guess one of the main plot points early in the story, keep reading - there are more surprises to come.  It's probably one of the darkest books that I've read and enjoyed recently so now I think it's time to read a fluffy romance.
