Publisher Description

THE UNMISSABLE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER WITH A SHOCKING TWIST

'Haunting . . . this story will stay with you' Jane Corry, author of My Husband's Wife & The Dead Ex

Would you risk your life to save a stranger?

___________

A local schoolgirl has been missing for weeks when Margot Lewis, agony aunt of the 'Dear Amy' advice column, receives a letter:

Dear Amy,

I've been kidnapped by a strange man.
I don't know where I am.

Please help me,
Bethan Avery

This must be a hoax. Because Bethan Avery is another young girl, who went missing twenty years ago.

As more letters arrive, Margot becomes consumed by finding the sender and - unlike the police - convinced that the girls' disappearances are connected.

Solving this puzzle could save someone's life - but could it also cost Margot her own?

Who to trust

"Wise men speak when they have something to say; fools speak when they have to say something." How true is that phrase? I can think of many this applies to...and not just men!!

Dear Amy came up as one of THE books to read this summer - a debut to watch according to Deadgood Books so I knew I wanted to read. So I was made up when the publisher approved my request through Netgalley.

Helen Callaghan definitely has a way with words. The way she described the head nun Mother Cecilia as a "female Gandalf" with a "hothouse brain" and "alchemy wizardry" conjures up such an image of the character.

The first half story is sinister at points but not a goose-bump chilling thriller; but as the story unfolds, it gets darker, the tension builds and the twists start to appear.

Helen Callaghan's debut is a brilliant read that keeps you guessing all the way. I did question and mistrust a number of characters throughout the story.

Big thank you to Penguin UK, Michael Joseph and Netgalley for sending me an advanced copy of Dear Amy in return for my unbiased review.
