Kate and Lisa are friends; both have children and busy lives. Then young girls start to disappear and Kate’s daughter is one of them. The trouble is that Lisa was supposed to be looking after her at the time. Just what sort of a mother loses her best friend’s child? What kind of mother are you?
I enjoyed this book; it was a quick read and a clever story with a predictable twist at the end which didn’t really matter since it wasn’t exactly a thought provoking kind of novel anyway. Some of the characters are quite unpleasant (you’ll have to read it to find out who) but I did really relate to Lisa trying to be all things to all people and managing to drop the ball one too many times. The family dynamics are very true to life and the story is based on an interesting premise so pretty easy reading.
All in all, it wasn’t a great book but it was still a good read and I would definitely read another by this author.
