“Wow!! Just wow!!… Brilliant! More than brilliant, amazing!!!… Absolutely gripping, addictive and captivating… I was absolutely hooked from the first page to the last. A massive five stars from me.” NetGalley reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Numbness floods my body as I stumble up the steps leading to my house. Inside I know my five-year-old’s bed is empty, her dresser is ransacked, her overnight bag is gone. I can see her dolls lying untouched through the window of our perfect family home – in the place where I thought I could protect her forever. My daughter is missing.
You’d think my first instinct would be to call the police.
But I know who’s taken my daughter.
And I know that the police can’t help me.
Only I can convince the woman who has my baby to give her back. She thinks she knows my secrets… but she has no idea.
Fans of Liane Moriarty, Sally Hepworth and The Girl on the Train will love this utterly unputdownable domestic thriller from USA Today bestselling author Nicola Marsh.

A single mother moves into the neighborhood and integrates very quickly with her neighbor. This neighborhood is FULL of secrets.
This is a neighborhood I would not want to live in for fear of my marriage. It makes a great book though.
Look forward to reading more books from this author! Great read never would have guessed ending!
Quick Twisty Read
The sort of book you rush through to learn the secrets the author explicitly and somewhat clumsily puts in front of you. It reminds me of some movies I only watch halfway through but then have to go to Wikipedia to read the plot summary so I know what happened.
It is entertaining and not badly written, but it’s not like a good Liane Moriarity novel where you become invested in the characters and there’s some depth and nuance to the story.
