It was heartbreaking for the parents, and the nanny.
We follow the investigation at the parents house, where the police ask questions.
The community join together to try and find this little girl.
I was surprised by a few things. Although, things are rarely what they seem.
Laurel goes off to catch up with her Mum at a bonfire night, but never actually makes it. Anna the nanny took her eyes off Laurel for a split second- and she vanished.
A well-paced, interesting take on the classic 'girl goes missing' plot.
I've read rather a few crime / thriller stories recently, and I must confess, was starting to get slightly jaded with the genre. There seems to be quite a bit of 'sameyness' out there at the moment, and I was gagging to read something a bit different.
Have You Seen Her met this need to a degree, and was certainly enjoyable.
Anna is a n ...more
This is an amazing, gripping read, a real page-turner that I didn't want to leave until I discovered what had really happened to Lauren, a young girl who goes missing whilst attending a fireworks display with both her Mum, Fran, and her nanny, Anna. The story is told from the point of view of Anna and is so full of twists and turns it is a tense nightmare with surprising revelations, accusations and is totally unputdownable!
From the very beginning, the reader is drawn into this fas ...more
A great book, intriguing from the start which kept me on my toes all the way through. Topped off with a superb ending.
The story is told from Anna's perspective who was very attached to Laurel and in some ways has replaced her parents role as they were always so busy and didn't spend much time with thei ...more
Written in the first person enabled me to ‘walk’ through the novel. Suspicion lurked around every corner. I was gripped, as were the characters, by “the dark hand of fear.”
The novel is about consuming passions – passions that will dictate actio ...more
The police hunt begins and still Lauren is nowhere to be seen. Eventually with no leads the police start to look closer to home.
They all have secrets and some are darker than the others. I was gripped from the first page and read this book in one sitting I HAD TO KNOW!!!! So many suspects, secrets and lies. This book had me tapping my kindle faster and faster and as for the ending I honestly did not see that coming. A really good psychologica ...more
