Bonfire Night. A missing girl.
Anna only takes her eyes off Laurel for a second. She thought Laurel was following her mum through the crowds. But in a heartbeat, Laurel is gone.
Laurel’s parents are frantic. As is Anna, their nanny. But as the hours pass, and Laurel isn’t found, suspicion grows.
Someone knows what happened to Laurel. And they’re not telling.
Have You Seen Her is the breath-taking new thriller with a killer twist from bestseller Lisa Hall.
A story that is every parents worst nightmare, your child going missing. As with the characters in the story, when they realise Laurel is missing, I could feel the sense of dread and fear rising in me.
Anna is the little girls nanny and you can tell just how much she loves Laurel also. It soon becomes clear that Anna has run away from something in her past which she is keeping secret and I was dying to know just what that secret was.
Laurel’s parents are not the most likeable of people. They are both self absorbed and more than the odd occasion I wanted to give them both a slap. It was hard at times feeling empathy for them as they were so wrapped up in themselves.
I enjoyed seeing how much FLO’s do within this instance, working with the family and generally trying to be there whilst also hoping to find out more information. I loved how the author focuses more on this aspect than the general detective side that we so often see in these sort of books.
As I have come to expect with this authors books, nothing is ever quite what it seems. There are lots of red herrings to steer you off course, having you second guessing at everyone and everything.
Have You Seen Her is an enthralling, twisty read and a guaranteed page turner. I was hooked from the off and the author ensured I stayed there until the very last page. A must read for fans of psychological thrillers.
My thanks to NetGalley and HQ for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
