Totally did not see that ending coming!
Brilliant detective story with plenty of twists and turns which left me guessing along the way. Very well thought out and plotted. I had the advantage of listening to the Audible book so didn‘t have to guess whose perspective we were reading which I understand confused some readers of the conventional book. Audible has several people narrating. First in a series which is great news!

Must tell you about this one before I get stuck in to my #FallIsBooked TBR - finished reading it at the weekend, and it‘s excellent. First in a series.

I‘ve been trying to get into this all day and I‘m only about 30 pages in! 😬I just can‘t seem to get into it! The formatting is super different and I think that‘s what‘s throwing me off. It doesn‘t have chapters and it switches perspectives but doesn‘t tell you who‘s perspective it‘s from so you have to try and figure it out. I did read at the pool where it was loud and distracting so I‘m hoping that was this issue! Have you read this? Thoughts?

I really enjoyed this book! The only thing I wasn‘t keen on was the pages of tweets, although I understood the cultural significance of a ‘trial by twitter‘ I didn‘t feel they really added anything to the story and by the end I was skimming them. I recognised that there was going to be a twist but I definitely didn‘t guess it which is always a sign of a good book for me 👌🏻 Looking forward to reading the next in the series 😀

Oh my gosh I absolutely did not see that coming! A riveting mystery with excellent characters that I did not figure out the ending to before the midpoint! Very excited for more from Cara Hunter.

This is Scarlett. She is angry that a) I gave her water in a bowl rather than a glass, and b) that my hands are occupied with coffee and books rather than pets. This is some serious reproach, you guys.

QuietlyLaura Such a cute angry kitty! 😍 My kitty gets angry when she doesn‘t get running water from my bathroom sink! My husband started that trend and I never let him forget it! 😉 1y

Basic plot was ok (8 year old Daisy disappears from a party. Was she abducted by a stranger or is the answer closer to home?) but none of the characters were very sympathetic. Rating: 3 ⭐️

Savugirl I'd read the blurbs on the book and didn't think it'd be as good as it turned out to be. Hope you enjoy it, as well. 2y

Another Richard and Judy 99p book club bargain which I enjoyed. Kept me wanting to read until the end and I had no idea how the ending would turn out. 😁

Last night, 8-year-old Daisy Mason disappeared from her parents' summer party. No one in the quiet suburban street saw anything - or at least that's what they're saying. DI Adam Fawley is trying to keep an open mind. But he knows that nine times out of ten, it's someone the victim knew. That means someone is lying. And that Daisy's time is running out...

This book was so engaging it hooks you from the first page right through to the end. Nothing is quite how it first appears. The only thing is certain is that daisy is missing. This book is one you certainly won't want to put down
