Five-year-old Cally waits in her pretty pink bedroom for the sound of the front door opening and her mother’s sweet voice in the hall. But when the doorbell finally rings, and Cally creeps out of bed to peer through the banister, a large man in uniform is all she sees. Her mother is missing...
Teacher Annabel Braddock was last seen drinking at the local pub with her best friend, Jennifer. Witnesses saw tears running down her cheeks, and friends say she was having problems with a colleague at work, and that her marriage had broken down.
But as the two women hugged goodbye, neither noticed the car speeding towards them. As the dust settled, Jennifer lay unconscious on the ground and Annabel was nowhere to be seen. She’d never abandon her little girl, so did someone snatch her?
As family crowd around Jennifer’s hospital bed, hoping she’ll wake up, police visit Annabel’s home and her inconsolable daughter, Cally, tells them she had seen a man outside staring into her room as she climbed into bed that evening. Was it her childish imagination, or had someone been watching Annabel’s home?
When Jennifer finally opens her eyes and tells the police what happened that night, it’s clear there are plenty of people with a reason to harm Annabel. With an unpredictable husband, a colleague who denies harassing her and a neighbour who seems to know her every move, could she be in imminent danger? As the hours turn to days, will little Cally ever see her precious mother again? Or will she be next?
If you love fast-paced, gripping crime thrillers that keep you up all night, you’ll be completely addicted to One Girl Missing. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Cara Hunter and Clare Mackintosh.

Loved and OMG!!!!! I live for the endings of a book and this one had it all. It was super intense and very shocking. I was on the edge of my seat the whole entire time. I couldn’t flip through the pages fast enough. I didn’t know what was going to happen next or who was going make it out. Also, be warned that tissues are needed for certain parts. I got so emotional at times and used a whole box of Kleenex. Ok, so I promised myself I would start this series from the very beginning since I have been reading them out of order but once I read this blurb I just couldn’t help myself. It sounded so good and I thought why not since I have already started it out of order anyways. This is a great series that can definitely be read any way you like it. I’ve read half of this series so far now and I can’t wait to read the rest of them. As usual the characters are my favorite part of these books. This whole team of detectives work so well together to solve the crime as quick as they can. Each of them add their own strengths to help the team out to get the job done. Also, after reading so many books in this series I have gotten so invested in each of these characters lives outside the job. It’s like I’m best friends with each and every one of them. I feel everything that they are feeling whether it’s good or bad. I laugh or cry with me depending on the scenario. These characters are what makes these books so special. I really hope this series never ends. As always Carla Kovach did a wonderful job and I can’t wait to start another book by her.
In conclusion, the plot, the characters and all the twists in this book made this book an enjoyable read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
