Publisher's Summary

Nine years ago her daughter was taken. And now she’s back.

Two-and-a-half-year-old Holly is playing happily in a pink, plastic playhouse, while her mother Rachel sips coffee and chats with a friend nearby. It should be an ordinary day for all of them. But, in the blink of an eye, it turns into every family’s worst nightmare.

Holly is taken by a stranger and never found.

Nine years later, Rachel is living a quiet life in Dorset. She’s tried to keep things together since the traumatic day when she lost her eldest daughter. She has a new family, a loving partner, and her secrets are locked away in her painful past...until one afternoon when Rachel meets a new school parent Kate and her teenage daughter Bella. 

Rachel’s world is instantly turned upside down - she’s seen Bella before. She’d recognize that face anywhere - it’s her missing child. And she will stop at nothing to get her back...

From the million-copy best-selling author of The Secret Mother and The Perfect Family. If you loved Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, and The Sister this book is for you.

Predictable Ending

I figured out the "twist" very early on. I did not like this book.

Great surprise ending!

This story was well-read and kept me engaged all the way through, with a surprise ending that I didn't see coming, even though I thought I knew the answer.

Plain awful

Couldn’t finish it page after page of repetitive whining, endless of bunch of nothing. I liked her other books but this one is going back. I don’t care if the end might be redeeming, I would not invest 7 hours for 15 min of a “ shocking twist”. Skip this one

Returning it.

Hard to follow

I have read several of Shalini Bolands books and typically I really like them. All of her books kinda jump around past/present however this one made it vrry hard to follow. I don't typically have an issue with this writing style but this one was very hard to follow

Wow! What a Great Story

Wow! I have read some amazing plot twists, but this one blew me away! For someone who usually guesses most plots before the end, this one had me blind sided in a fun way. When reading a mystery it is nice to be proven wrong.

Predictable

Started out extremely well and caught my interest. After a few chapters it seemed to drag on a bit. After that the plot became predictable and, although I didn’t, I wanted to skip to the end to find out how it turned out.
It’s not a bad read but not this author’s best book.

Complete waste of time

This had to be the most boring story I had ever listen to I ended up falling asleep several times through it only to not actually find that I had lost any of the information I can skip several chapters and keep the story right on going the ending was absolutely no surprise or mystery whatsoever and they actually knew the ending about halfway through the third chapter
