Description

This morning, my daughter sat right here, munching her breakfast, too excited to finish it. Now, she is missing.

The day after her ninth birthday, Lucie and Blake Sullivan agree, for the very first time, to let their daughter, Grace, make the four-minute walk back home alone from a friend’s house just down the street. 

They joke with friends about hiding behind bushes to ensure she is safe. But the joke turns sour when Grace does not appear. 

Despite the best efforts of the police and local community, Grace seems to have vanished into thin air. With hope fading fast, Lucie knows she can rely on her husband to support her through such dark times. That is until the day she makes a shocking discovery, hidden in Blake’s desk, and suddenly she begins to doubt everything she knew about the man she married.  

But Lucie harbours a terrible secret of her own. One that she has never shared with anyone, even Blake.... 

And as the search for Grace reaches fever pitch, Lucie receives a terrifying message. If she is ever to see Grace again, Lucie has no choice but to face the past she tried hard to bury forever. And she must do it alone. 

The most gripping psychological thriller you’ll listen to this year from the best-selling author K.L. Slater. If you love The Wife Between Us or Gone Girl, you’ll be totally hooked on Finding Grace.

Great story!

I really enjoyed the story! I had just had to keep listening to find out what happened in the end. I did guess one of the twists but most of them were a mystery right up until they were revealed. The narrator was quite good, a few of the female voices sounded a bit similar but I certainly enjoyed the narration all the same.

Sadly predictable, making you hate the protagonist.

The initial set up and mystery following Grace’ disappearance is intriguing but as the author breaks into the protagonists past the “twists” become very predictable. I uttered to myself “how” and “whhhhhy” to many of the ridiculous mistakes the main character makes. Overall I found it disappointing. The reader does a lovely job how ever so I soldiered on to the finale.

slow at first, but full of twists after

this book was good, but started slow with lots of detail. it wasn't until the last third that I was really wanting to know the ending. lots of twists.

A Quick Read But Relateable

I don't think this book will stand out in my mind when comparing it to others that still hold my attention, however it still kept me engaged and I tried to piece things together throughout the book, questioning the motives of characters. It put me in the shoes of a possible situation that no one wishes to go through, which was interesting.

Boring Until The Last Hour

No Spoilers! Not enough suspense and I found the main character to be a bore. There were some twists at the end but I could see them coming early on. The main character was quite dim and I found her annoying. The only excellent part was the narrator.

If you like lots of drama with minimal suspense then you may enjoy this book.

A Really GOOD Book That Stays On Focus

I am so happy to have found this author! She writes in the style that I love. She stays on focus of the story and doesn't go off on tangents about things that don't forward the story. I love that style because I never get bored with the book. Can't wait to read more by her. The narration was great!

Disappointing

I enjoyed the beginning of the book but as it progressed it was ridiculous. The main character makes one unbelievably bad decision after another until I wanted to scream. The story was improbable and Lucy was a weak and annoying character.

Great book

Great story. Some parts are predictable; there are a couple surprises. You want to just smack Lucy for being so naive. But overall, it was an enjoyable read.

Good for a quick listen

I really enjoyed this book. The story was well written and easy to understand. The only thing was that it was a little slow. I wish it had some more overshadowing. But overall great book. Would recommend.

Finding Grace, tediously

The story was actually good. I felt it was tedious because at least the first half had not so much story with people doing things, but the majority of the time with Lucinda going on and on about how she felt, her suspicions, and her overall mental state. Once we got past that, and into more of the ‘16 years ago’ alternating chapters the story moved much faster, and had much more meat to keep your attention. The ending was almost too fast in contrast to the slower portions. But it was a very good job of tying up the loose ends.

Don't waste your time....

Struggled to finish, it was really drawn out with nothing really happening until the very end and the main character made me want to scream....

Disappointing.

Shallow, unlikeable characters, an implausible plot and a poor narrative.

There are many good books and good authors in this genre where the characters fill the pages and the story grips until the end, but this is not one of them.

Out of respect for the author and a commitment to myself to finishing every book I purchase, I hung in until the end although I found I eventually had to increase the narrative speed so as not to prolong the agony.

If it’s quality and fine writing you want try Peter Grainger’s delightful Inspector DC Smith series, or any of Adrian McGinty’s excellent novels. I don’t think you’ll find it here.
