Welcome to my stop on the #99redballoons blog tour. Thankyou to the publisher for my gorgeous Arc review and I hope if you’re following the tour so far you are enjoying the wonderful blogs posts!

Ok so here’s a little bit more about the book…

THE SYNOPSIS:

Two girls go missing, decades apart. What would you do if one was your daughter?

When eight-year-old Grace goes missing from a sweetshop on the way home from school, her mother Emma is plunged into a nightmare. Her family rallies around, but as the police hunt begins, cracks begin to emerge.

What are the secret emails sent between Emma’s husband and her sister? Why does her mother take so long to join the search? And is Emma really as innocent as she seems?

Meanwhile, ageing widow Maggie Taylor sees Grace’s picture in the newspaper. It’s a photograph that jolts her from the pain of her existence into a spiralling obsession with another girl – the first girl who disappeared…

This is a gripping psychological thriller with a killer twist that will take your breath away.

MY REVIEW…

As a massive fan of psychological thrillers this book did not disappoint. The eye catching cover would have had me running for the tills as it’s eerie image was a great precursor to the story inside… chilling!

From page one this book held me captive, it’s a very well written domestic/ psychological thriller and in a style that is easy to read and so because of this and the fact that the plot will have your heart pumping I found it hard to break of for annoying everyday things I had to do like eating and sleeping πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

The storyline although not entirely new is given a fresh slant and a new perspective and I found it completely gripping. It’s pacy and never loses its flow which is a pet hate of mine and unreels the dark side of a family in despair..

So we have missing child and for a mother this is enough to have my nerves on edge but we also have secrets and a mother who is lying… intrigued? You should be- grab a copy of this and you won’t be disappointed. Well plotted and with enough questions, twists turns and reveals to keep you gasping it’s an entertaining and enthralling tale that is full of suspense . The author has a talent for brilliant characterisation, I especially liked the character of Maggie which really added a lot of depth to this read for me and an ability to build tension beautifully.

A clever, intelligent thriller that will have you floored by the end …
