Following on from my “Best of 3” top picks of Child Abduction novels, I am going to recount my fave missing girl novels of recent times.
Don’t forget you can friend me on Goodreads, HERE or by clicking the pics above.
1) Just What Kind Of Mother Are You? by Paula Daly
What’s worse than losing someone else’s child … Surely losing someone else’s!! I loved the premise of this book, but it’s Daly’s masterful characterisation that really kept it in my brain. Read my whole review, HERE.
2) Half The World Away by Cath Staincliffe
I won a copy of this book in a Twitter contest and I’m so glad I did. It’s tightly woven and intriguingly plotted – and what’s more, it totally STRESSED ME OUT! I really felt like time was running out for Lorelei. Exceptionally well-written book. Read my whole review, HERE.
3) Girl Number One by Jane Holland
I love a good serial killer thriller, so I love the cat and mouse game played here between the perp and protagonist Eleanor. What’s more, the rural idyll of Cornwall becomes threatening so well, plus Eleanor’s own patchy memory makes her recollection of her own mother’s murder unreliable. Recommended.
