Release Date: Now
I received a copy of this book from Canelo in return for an honest review.
The first thing that I noticed about this book was the front cover of the book. You can tell that it is a thriller and the name of the book pops out. The synopsis of the book was also very interesting to me and I had no idea how the book would go once I started reading it.
You meet Francine, Autumn’s mother, who has never given up on the search for her daughter despite it being 10 years. She arrives home to find a note on the floor which says “I know where she is”, there is no return address, name or contact details from whoever has left this note, but immediately, Francine knows this is about her daughter, and contacts her ex-husband about the discovery. However he writes off this discovery as the work of trolls and tells Francine he won’t help.
Francine doesn’t give up hoping to find her daughter and meets Lena a short while later who tells her about a girl called Mel. Francine is convinced Mel is her daughter and takes Lena in to find out all the information she can so that she can get back her daughter. There are however many obstacles as Lena isn’t exactly mentally stable and she is alone as her ex-husband refuses to help.
We learn soon after what has happened to Autumn and why she was abducted and how she is still alive. I didn’t expect the book to take this turn in the subject of what happened to her, but the book kept you on your toes switching in the parts of characters so you learn more about what is happening to them and their view points.
Overall, you’re rooting for Francine to get her daughter back as you can see that she will do whatever it takes to get her back, even if it means killing people! The book ends with the whole family being reunited and Francine’s plan for the future; even though she is reunited with Autumn, the danger isn’t over and I could see the story possibly carrying on into another book. I’d recommend this book if you like thrillers!
