Publisher's Summary

The must-read psychological thriller for 2019 from the million-copy-bestselling author of Silent Child.

"Your daughter is dead."

When Kat Cavanaugh hears the words every mother dreads, her perfect world shatters. She takes in the beautiful long blonde hair, torn yellow dress, and chipped blue nail-varnish. It can’t be real.

And then the police add the word "suicide". But Kat refuses to believe them.

Even when they show her the familiar looping handwriting and smudged ink on the note her little girl left behind. She knows her bubbly, vivacious daughter would never take her own life.

As she searches Grace’s perfume-scented room, filled with smiling photos, she uncovers secrets her little girl had been hiding. Secrets that could put her in terrible danger, too.

But Kat’s determined to find out what really happened to Grace on the night she died, whatever it takes....

This addictive and heart-pounding psychological thriller will keep you gripped late into the night.

Seemingly endless

I couldn’t wait for this book to just finally end honestly. I loved Silent Child by Sarah Denzil and had high hopes for this book...but it just droned on and on endlessly. The first 14 chapters seemed to be the mom rehashing the same story repeatedly. Didn’t enjoy this one at all. At the end, I stopped caring what the outcome would be. A bit anticlimactic overall.

Well written but not very realistic.

This was a 3.5 ☆ book.
It was an entertaining listen and some of the twists I seen coming in some way, shape or form. I think the "who dunnit" required such a high level of suspension of disbelief that it took away from the ending a bit.

Also, Kat's thought processes in some areas were so crazy and out of this world that they drove me crazy and I almost stopped listening a couple times.

Pretty great

The story had me rapt from the beginning. Really easy to listen to & enough intrigue to keep you involved. I found myself finding excuses to keep listening.
The "twist" wasn't quite a twist, but it was good all the same.
I liked this book so much I got 2 more from this author & listened to those in 2 days.

Great read, until the ultimately stupid ending..

This book had everything going for it. It had a complex woman with a personality disorder who was finding it difficult to mourn properly for her daughter, who recently committed suicide. She refused to believe that her daughter really did kill herself. She started her own investigation, and it was leading to all sorts of interesting places.

Then came the ending and the denouement. I have to say, I just couldn't believe how stupid and obvious it was. It totally ruined to book for me, and I asked for my credit back.

So frustrating!

AWFUL

this was seriously the WORST BOOK EVER! The only reason I even finished it was because I spent money buying it. UGH UGH such a silly moronic idea for a story

Drawn out and mostly predictable

The character development was lacking. She really hammered the same things home over and over again So that the characters were more two dimensional. I did finish it because I could not let the plot go unfinished in my mind
But if I had it to do it over again I wouldn’t choose this one.

I'm glad I'm finished

There's a twist, but I'm not invested in the story enough to really care.

Story Great, But ENTIRELY Too Long

If this was shortened by about 10 chapters, I think it still could've been epic-in spots I grew bored. But ultimately worth staying until the end.

it started out good

the books are not really good very promising and then it just kind of got boring and you got the feeling is it ever going to end. Also the ending just wasn't very good either.
