S.B. Caves is certainly a new name to me in the mystery/thriller department but I do hope this is not his first and only book. The book intrigued me and pulled me in from the first few chapters and although it was a little slow to start it picked up and became a fast-paced read. My love for crime novels means I am always seeking out new books from both authors known to me and also those who are new to the scene. In this case, the publisher was kind enough to allow me a copy to read and review.

5☆ Gripping, Fast Paced,Heart Racing, Addictive, Thriller!

I know where she is, literally had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through.
So many twists and turns it had me second guessing myself over and over.
It's fast paced, Gripping, highly addictive, Thrilling and just a bit shocking.

Be prepared once you start this book you will not put it down till the very end!

4.5 stars for I Know Where She Is by SB Caves.

I hate to think how I would have coped had one of my children been abducted. In the beginning I was judgmental of Francine, whose daughter Autumn was abducted some 10 years prior to the start of this book. Francine coped by becoming a functioning alcoholic who regularly consults psychics. Her husband Will coped by turning his daughter's disappearance into an industry.

Fast forward, and Francine receives a hand delivered note with only the words 'I KN

I Know Where She Is by SB Caves was a thriller about Lena who was trying to find her young daughter who had gone missing almost a decade before. I enjoyed this book, it was fast paced and I could not put it down and read it in one day. The subject matter is not for the faint hearted. I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for my e-copy in exchange for an honest review.

"A white envelope, unmarked, no stamp. Scrawled in chicken scratch: I KNOW WHERE SHE IS."

Francine receives this message ten years after her daughter, Autumn Cooper-Wright, went missing and no amount of searching ever turned up a clue. Francine descended into an alcoholic haze, she and her husband, Will, divorced and only recently has she begun to get herself put back together. Francine frantically calls her husband for a meet, but he's moved on, has a new wife and is expecting a child, and he th

On the tenth anniversary of her daughter, Autumn, disappearance, Francine receives a note pushed through her letter box with the words, ‘I Know Where She Is’ wrote in childish handwriting.

She takes the note to her ex husband, Autumns dad Will, for his help, but he shuts her down, and tells her that it will be kids, and to leave him alone and that she needs professional help.

Then a strange young woman, Lena, appears stating that she wrote the note, and that Autumn, now called Melody, is being hel

A very gripping story about a mother who goes all out to find her daughter who disappeared 10 years ago. On the 10th anniversary of Autumn's disappearance the mother gets a note saying "I know where she is." And they're off and racing. It got a little far-fetched towards the end but by then you're so invested in the story that you power on through. I would read more from this author.

Oh my goodness this was so NOT what I was expecting but in a good way so don’t worry! From the moment Francine got that anonymous letter through her letterbox, I was hooked! Do be warned that although this hard hitting thriller does contain scenes that some people may find upsetting, it will also hold you hostage to its powerful story of a mother determined to bring her daughter home.

And Francine is very much on her own in her quest to find out what happened to Autumn 10 years ago and whether or

This was a book I wasn't sure of at the beginning as it took me a couple of chapters to connect with, but once we connected my excitement grew with the story.

I can't imagine what it would be like to have a child taken from you in such a way never knowing if they were dead or still alive. This is what happens with Francine. The only thing she has held onto for ten years is hope , its hope that has kept her from completely going under, afterall, her ex husband is one hell of a no hoper at all, he

I almost hate giving this book 5 stars, but the story sucks you in, and this earns it 5 stars, It is a page turner.

Where I say I hate to give it 5 stars is due to the storyline. It is pretty sad imho that something like this storyline could even be conceived! Sad and brutal.

This may be my most candid review ever, my reviews are typically is it good or not.

That being said....

10 heart pounding stars ⭐️ x 10!

I loved everything about this book. The main character Francine because she never quit even when the odds were against her; Autumn because she took the worst possible situation ever and drew strength from it and came out as quite the badass heroine!
There wasn’t a slow or boring part in the book. I am so beyond glad I got to read this. It was so good I finished it in one day. Yes, the subject matter is dark and depressing and hits a few nerves, but you will root fo

Firstly I found the start of this a bit slow. Over two days I was reading the odd pages. Then I sat this afternoon and thought I better give it a chance. I'm so glad I did. The pace picked up and apart from making dinner I couldn't put it down until I'd finished it.

At the beginning we meet Francine. Her life fell apart ten years ago when her daughter went missing. She struggles each day and the only thing keeping her going is hope- hope that her daughter Autumn is still alive. Francine ex husba

Trigger Warning: pedophilia, child sexual abuse, violence

With the current news of "famous and powerful people" being enmeshed in rampant pedophilia, I wouldn't be surprised that something as depicted in the book actually exists. I would actually bet on it. But there is something else that is bothering me, and I don't see anyone mention it. I believe the dad is in on it. His behavior throughout the book, him being a celebrity in his own right, being friends with Glenn and shielding him, the fact

10 years ago Francine's daughter, Autumn, was abducted, whilst Francine dallied in a store. Abducted - in an eye-blink. Gone. Any parent's worst nightmare. It caused an inevitable rift with her snowflake of a husband, who blames her for what took place. On the tenth anniversary of her daughter's disappearance Francine receives a note pushed through her letterbox: "I know where she is". The next day a young woman approaches Francine, claiming to have sent the note. The stranger knows things only ...more

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.

The book opens with Francine, whose daughter was abducted 10 years ago.
While everyone around her ( including her ex husband) seems to have moved on, she is positive that her daughter is still out there.

One day she receives a hand written note which only says : I know where she is. From then on it's a fast paced thriller as Francine embarks on a ( somewhat implausible) journey to retrieve her daughter.

When I picked up this book I had no idea I was about to be thrown head first into an action packed, utterly gripping, edge-of-your-seat ride. There’s no gentle introduction – right from the beginning this is high tension reading, with dramatic, explosive scenes coming one after the other at breakneck speed.

The book starts at the approach to the 10 year anniversary of Francine’s daughter’s disappearance. Francine is a mess – drinking to excess then overexercising to counteract th

I received an ARC of this book to review and give my honest opinion.

‘I Know Where She Is’ by S. B. Caves is a mystery/thriller novel. Autumn has been missing for 10 year after going missing when out one day with her Mum, Francine. On the 10th anniversary of her disappearance Francine receives a hand written note. All that is on the note are the words, ‘I know where she is’.

Given that this story is set in America where the unbelievable often happens, this book, although thrilling in places, stretches the bounds of credibility both in storyline and characterisation. Set around a theme of paedophilia, the book often makes uncomfortable reading to say the least. The assertion by one of the main characters that such is the involvement of officials at all levels of national governance that reporting people and crimes is useless, is not believable. The main characters al

I Know Where She Is, chosen at random from my Kindle as I fancied reading a thriller, did draw me in quite quickly. The characters, most of whom are too underdeveloped, form rather an odd cast, and I was not overly convinced by any of them. I Know Where She Is was relatively engaging, and very well paced, but after a while everything became very unlikely, even silly. A bit of a strange book, really.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from netgalley.

What a high to end the year on!!! Definite 4.5 stars. Rounded to five for some Christmas spirit.

Autumn is kidnapped ten years ago and her mum never gives up hope. Then a strange girl (I imagined her as Luna lovegood) turns up with some strange tales around a house and lots of girls and celebrities being involved.

Like a lot of other reviews, this wasn’t what I expected. but I loved it!

‘I Know Where She Is’ is a fast paced- if very disturbing-thriller that firmly connects with the biggest fear of every parent, the abduction and torture of their child. More importantly, it reveals that secret homicidal rage that lurks in the shadows of every parent’s heart should harm come to their child. And, the question, how far would you go to get your child back?

I requested this from Netgalley in return for an honest opinion .I regret to say, despite some glowing reviews,, that I found it rather nasty rubbish. It’s an American book featuring female child abduction and male child abuse.. That this happens we know all too well from TV news and papers, but I don’t need to read a fictionalised account as well . The real thing is bad enough. And this story I found unbelievable, blown up to daft proportions.. It left me feeling disquieted.

I strongly feel it is irresponsible and neglectful of the author/Publishing team not to mention a large theme of this book, or at least mention that there is a major trigger point in the shape of graphic sexual abuse and sexual violence.
If I knew of the content beforehand I probably wouldn’t have started it, but I would have definitely read some reviews first - then most likely avoid it.

I must admit, I Know Where She Is was not what I was expecting - in a good way! This book is edgy, full of sass and shows just what lengths a parent, in this case the mother Francine, will go to.

Its been ten years since Francine's daughter, Autumn, disappeared when she receives a scrawled note simply saying.....I KNOW WHERE SHE IS. Francine knows that this has to have something to do with Autumn, but her ex-husband and Autumn's father isn't so sure and is extremely dismissive of Francine. I didn

Where do I start with a review of this book short of saying "I loved it" from
the first word?

The cover is just my type of cover – pink and black is one of my favourite colour combinations, and it just looks so perfect for this book, given the title and the startling cover image of a girl in the woods at night time. It was the cover and synopsis that had me requesting the book as well as the fact the title is about someone's whereabouts. This insinuated I'd be in for a thriller with a lot of drama

I have been drawn to I Know Where She Is since the first time I heard about it. The stunning colour scheme of the cover, the eerie lone figure in the woods and the blurb captured my imagination. Did it live up to my expectations? Yes, it sure did! Not quite what I was anticipating but nevertheless a gripping story. It is a lot darker and intense and due to the nature of some of the content I feel I have to give a *trigger warning for alcohol, rape and child abuse. Having said that the author tak ...more

Wow this book got under my skin! I felt invested in Francine's story almost as soon as I started reading, I wanted the same answers as she did - I wanted to know what had happened to her daughter. I think being a mother myself made the storyline even more real for me, my motherly instincts took over and I couldn't help but feel involved. This wasn't always a good thing because there were some scenes that were incredibly difficult for me to read and brought tears to my eyes. The further I read, t ...more
