A great read!

This was my second book by Kathryn Croft and I enjoyed this book much more than "The Stranger Within". I thought the narration was really well done and although there were times I had to go back in the book because I couldn't remember something, I think it was more likely I was multi tasking and not paying attention rather than an issue with the writing.

The ending was way more "surprising" than the ending of her other novel The Stranger Within. The story kept me guessing and thinking which for me is a good book!

Very Dark!

This is a great book for people who want to read a really dark murder mystery. There are very graphic sexual assault scenes so please keep that in mind. The lead character was great to follow, but I was disappointed with the development and presentation of the other characters.

Terrible. Skip this one.

I hated this book. It's predictable and there's little to no character development. Don't waste your credit on this.

Well done

I liked the story but I realized early on that one of the two men in her life was hiding something... and there was an inconsistency in the final explanation.

Slow to Start, but worth it

Would you listen to The Girl You Lost again? Why?

The story was exciting and unexpected. However, it did take a long time to get in to it. I almost stopped listening, but decided to push through and I am glad that I did.

Oh Snap.. Is She or isn't She The Girl You Lost?

I absolutely would recommend this book to anyone into suspense and mystery. Although the premise is tragic as losing a child is life altering- it's also dark and nerve racking. You have to choose what to believe and who to believe. There's some sketchy characters and wondering who the male narrative is keeps you guessing until the end. Definitely worth the credit, in my opinion.

Oh man... a lot of twists !!

This was pretty good- although it did contain some pretty intense scenes (rape) . It was a little hard to listen to sometimes. Good story though and great narration.

Quite good ....

This book moved along quickly. The accent wasn't too distracting - loved the male voice. Although I guessed the ending, it didn't spoil the story for me because I wasn't sure I was right until it was revealed. Creepy in parts but believable. I would recommend for soft thriller / mystery fans.

What an ending!!!!

I could not stop listening to this book. Have gotten totally hooked on Kathryn Croft and, plot wise, I thought this was one of her best. But PSA- do not listen if you are squeamish, as it is quite dark and disturbing

Much better than I expected

I'm not usually a big fan of stories in which an adult turns up saying they are someone who disappeared as a child. I bought this during a two for sale, and it turned out to be my favorite of the two. I won't spoil the plot, I'll just say if you like psychological mysteries, you'll love this one

Very predictable...

This book was kind of slow and very predictable. There are better British mysteries out there, I would skip this one. There is nothing new or intriguing here.
