The lives of others have always fascinated newspaper archivist Chloe. And when she comes across a cutting of a little girl who went missing twenty-five years ago, she is moved by the unwavering devotion of the child’s parents and their belief that their daughter will one day return.
Meanwhile, news that her beloved Nan, the only family she has left, must move into a nursing home, leaves Chloe distraught and soon to be homeless. So when the missing girl’s parents advertise for a lodger, Chloe sees this as a sign – a new home and the perfect opportunity to investigate the case. But it’s not long until she realises the couple aren’t all they seem from the outside . . .
With everyone in the house hiding something, the question is – whose secrets are the most dangerous?
When a book makes your skin crawl and you hold your breath you know it is going to be a good one. I loved the sound of this thriller and couldn’t wait to start reading it. This story is about Chloe and how as she is working her job as a journalist she uncovers a story from back in the past about a little girl going missing and that the police could never find out what happened to her. Chloe decides to investigate into it. Chloe also has her nan that has Alzheimer so we see her heartbreaking decline and I really did feel for Chloe as it is very sad to see when a person has this very cruel disease. On the hunt for clues to find the missing girl Chloe unearths alot more than she could ever imagine and manages to wind her way into the lives of the missing girls parents. Who is telling the truth and who is lying? Will there be skeletons in the Chloe’s closet too? It was a unique story, one I have never read before with such anticipation as I never truly knew what would become whilst turning the page. Your in for a real treat with this debut novel. Will be looking out for this author again.
