Cornerstone Digital (1 Jun. 2018)
She was your responsibility. And now she’s missing.
Charlotte is looking after her best friend’s daughter the day she disappears. She thought the little girl was playing with her own children. She swears she only took her eyes off them for a second.
Now, Charlotte must do the unthinkable: tell her best friend Harriet that her only child is missing. The child she was meant to be watching.
Devastated, Harriet can no longer bear to see Charlotte. No one could expect her to trust her friend again.
Only now she needs to. Because two weeks later Harriet and Charlotte are both being questioned separately by the police. And secrets are about to surface.
Someone is hiding the truth about what really happened to Alice.
Unputdownable psychological suspense from an exciting new talent, perfect for fans of Shari Lapena’s THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR and Claire Mackintosh’s I LET YOU GO.
My thoughts …
Now You See Her had me gripped from the off, it’s a gritty, nerve-wracking thriller that I could not put down, I was hooked.
When Harriet asked her best friend Charlotte to look after her daughter for the first time, Charlotte is more than happy to help, she’s also shocked at the request as Harriet has never left her daughter with anyone, ever! Charlotte takes the children out for the day when disaster strikes, Alice disappears and Charlotte is being branded a bad mother.
Harriet and her husband, Brian, are in turmoil over their missing daughter, and as Harriet starts to fall apart, we see things that may not have been clear to the world before.
Told in now and then chapters which detail the events leading up to Alice’s disappearance, Now You See Her takes us on a journey through friendship, secrets, and heartbreak and delves into the effects of the most horrible situation you can imagine.
As the build up to Alice’s disappearance is revealed, there are some bloody brilliant twists that will leave you breathless. Secrets and lies are unravelled and nothing you think you know is real, it’s bloody fantastic!
Slick and intelligent, Perks has created a world which will make you question everything, which will make you squeal with shock, and which will have you on the edge of your seat throughout!
Perks is a wonderful writer, and her characters are real and believable. They could be the people living next door to you. Her plot is plausible and presented in a way that will have you glued to the pages. And I mean completely, utterly, gripped. You won’t be able to put it, your life will be on hold, and you will have to put EVERYTHING on hold until it’s finished.
Now You See Her is bloody fantastic and is one you MUST buy – NOW!!!!
Hugest thanks to the team at Cornerstone for my spot on the blog tour and to the author for the most amazing book!
