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.

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.

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.

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.
