At first I thought I wouldn't like this book but I hung in there, glad that I did. It was pretty intense, the stories of these women. Everyone has their fair share of burdens in life, along with some secrets that they don't want to share. Definitely worth listening to, even those jaw dropping parts. Makes you wonder how many people actually share their lives along with these women. Narrator's did a great job as well as the author. 😀😀😀

Everyone lies...but some lies are deadly. For Claire Daniels, life is good. She has everything she’s ever wanted - a career she loves, friends she can rely on and a husband who dotes on her. All she needs is to start a family of her own and things will be even better than good. They’ll be perfect.

I know my daughter better than I know myself, and if there’s one thing I know for sure at this moment it's that Maisie is not okay. My ex-husband, Shaun, and I are still friends. We would do anything for our beautiful little girl, Maisie. But now Shaun has moved in with Joanne, and suddenly Maisie has a brand-new family. And there’s something not quite right about it.... I know Joanne isn’t everything she says she is. Yet no-one will listen. I need to discover what she’s hiding. Because if I don’t, my daughter will be in terrible danger.

I finished listening to it in one day it was that good! For any mother it will make your blood pressure rise. I didn't see the ending coming at all. Had to go back and play the last few chapters but it all made sense. Narrator did an excellent job bringing the authors words to life. For me anyway... definitely worth the money. 😀😀😀

The real nightmare starts when her daughter is returned.... A bone-chilling psychological thriller that will suit fans of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, Daughter by Jane Shemilt, and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. A girl is missing. Five years old, taken from outside her school. She has vanished, traceless. The police are at a loss; her parents are beyond grief. Their daughter is lost forever, perhaps dead, perhaps enslaved.

Close to tears, her eyes fall on a get-well-soon card on the window sill, and the nurse reassures her that her loving husband will be back soon. But Ella has never been married. In fact, she has lived alone her whole adult life; working hard, rarely socializing, quietly harboring a terrible secret from her past.
