First of all I’m going to address the elephant in the room as far as genre and bloggers overload goes. Yes this title has the word girl. And gone. And yes we are fed up with gone girls and domestic noir overload – there have been rumblings in the proverbial jungle and I myself swore after a recent disappointment that I wouldn’t be going there again for a while..still I’d heard great things about this one from trustworthy sources so hey, what the heck right? One more for the road…

Riveting psychological suspense? No.
Marketing blurbs, man.
Wow! That was a great thriller. I had my suspicions in the beginning about what happened. I was very surprised with how things played out though and the ending!! Remember Mia had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I was hooked from page one. I'm surprised I haven't heard more book buzz about this one. Especially being along the same lines as Gone Girl and Girl on the Train which have been ma ...more
This is Alexandra Burt's first novel, and I believe that she is up on top with all the rest of the psychological thriller writers.
Estelle's husband Jack was unpredictable in many ways. When baby Mia is born she cries all the time with colic. Jack has to work a way from home for a few weeks, but while he gone, seven-month-old baby Mia disappears. Estelle Paradise failed to contact the police to tell them that her baby daughter has been taken from her cot in Brooklyn, NY.

LITTLE GIRL GONE is a novel of psychological horror, focusing on a seven-month-old baby who has simply disappeared. Not an ordinary abduction, all evidence of the infant is missing, from clothes and diapers, to prepared bottles and even soiled diapers in the trash. I was constantly seeing this in late Victorian, European terms: the emotionally and psychologically abusive husband, gaslighting the confused and unstable wife; the woman involuntarily committ ...more
One day Estelle's baby, Mia, disappears. ALL of Mia's things disappear. EVERYTHING of Mia's disappears. Not one sock is left. Not one pacifier is left. Not one bottle of formula is left in the refrigerator. What's going on? Estelle's husband blames HER! What about HIM? This is a ...more
Finally I have finished this book. The blurb said a psychological thriller. I found it to be mostly psychological sessions with an amnesiac woman. BORING!!!! While reading it was the darndest thing I found myself absent-mindedly playing with a rope and turning it into a noose.
I skipped so many pages of this book, it was sad. Finally about 55% of the way through the book it started to get exciting for about 15 minutes. Then finding nothing to hang the noose from, I got out my gun and star ...more

Wow! This is my first reaction as I finish this exquisitely written novel. The psychological suspense is incredible. You don't know what is really happening and then Boom! Once I got going on this book I finished the 2nd half in less than a day. It will keep you guessing and that is what a book in this genre should do. I thought I knew what was happening, but you won't, no matter ho ...more

I know what most of you were thinking when they heard this book was out, probably something along the lines 'Oh, no. Another Gone Girl!' And you know what, that's not a bad thing, I was in the same group of people, slightly getting fed up of books compared to Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train.
But you know how they say never to judge a book by the cover? Well, I guess same way it could be said ...more
Brief synopsis: When Estelle’s baby daughter is taken from her cot, she doesn’t report her missing. Days later, Estelle is found in a wrecked car, with a wound to her head and no memory.
Estelle knows she holds the key to what happened that night – but what she doesn’t know is whether she was responsible…

As the blurb says, the novel is about Estelle and finding what happened to her daughter, Mia. The story starts with Estelle in the hospital, having amnesia – she dose not know what happened to her or to her baby. Therefore, a big part of the novel is focused on Estella trying to recover her memory. There is some action as well – in the memories that are ...more
Little Girl Gone (also published as Remembering Mia) is a tense psychological thriller from debut author Alexandra Burt.

Committed to a psychiatric hospital, Estelle is desperate to unravel the mystery of Mia's dis ...more
With the economic downturn, I'd hoped that publishers would deal with shrinking book sales by careful selection of what to publish; fewer books would be released but the cream would still rise to the top, and those books that still ...more
