Publisher's Summary

What should have been a fun-filled, carefree day takes a tragic turn for the worse for one mother when her best friend’s child goes missing in this suspenseful, compulsively listenable, and darkly twisted psychological thriller. 

It all started at the school fair....

Charlotte was supposed to be looking after the children, and she swears she was. She only took her eyes off of them for one second. But when her three kids are all safe and sound at the school fair, and Alice, her best friend Harriet’s daughter, is nowhere to be found, Charlotte panics. Frantically searching everywhere, Charlotte knows she must find the courage to tell Harriet that her beloved only child is missing. And admit that she has only herself to blame.

Harriet, devastated by this unthinkable, unbearable loss, can no longer bring herself to speak to Charlotte again, much less trust her. Now more isolated than ever and struggling to keep her marriage afloat, Harriet believes nothing and no one. But as the police bear down on both women trying to piece together the puzzle of what happened to this little girl, dark secrets begin to surface - and Harriet discovers that confiding in Charlotte again may be the only thing that will reunite her with her daughter....

This breathless and fast-paced debut - perfect for fans of Big Little Lies and The Couple Next Door - takes you on a chilling journey that will keep you guessing until the very last page.

Predictable

Very predictable...saw the whole thing coming a mile away. Kind of a waste of money.

I Guessed Wrong!

I totally guessed wrong about the "who done it" for a good part of the book. That is what made it a great book for me. I was entertained by this book and enjoyed it.

Addictive, Good Domestic Thriller

Her One Mistake held my attention throughout and left me wanting to listen every chance I had.

A woman watches her neighbour's child, and she looks away for just a moment and that child is gone. Feeling horrible and soon shunned by her friends, she feels horrible about her mistake. However, as the story progresses, we find out things are not as they seem, and the hunt to find the child takes some unexpected twists and turns.

Well narrated and enjoyable to listen at the speed of 1, Her One Mistake is a satisfying listen. I would recommend.
