Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Stolen by Lesley Pearse, read by Lucy Brownhill.

Sussex, 2003. When a beautiful blonde girl is found half-drowned on a beach, she has no memory of who she is or what horrors have left her there. But an article about her in a Brighton newspaper rings alarm bells for beautician Dale, who shows the police photographs of Lotte Wainright.

The girls met working on a cruise ship, and their friendship blossomed as they sailed the seas of South America, until Lotte fell under the sinister influence of an older American couple. To her regret, Dale hasn't seen Lotte since leaving the ship months earlier...but the girl on the beach - although badly bruised - is indeed her much missed friend.

Their reunion only marks the beginning of a dangerous tidal wave of secrets, lies and nightmares. Where has Lotte been? Who is the man who seems to want to kill her? And what has become of the baby she's recently given birth to? Dale and Lotte must dig deep and find the strength to hold on against the odds if they are to rebuild their friendship and survive Lotte's stolen - and deadly - past.

Not as “Bubble Gum” as it appears to be

The summary and I hate to say it, the cover art made me think this book was going to be a little “Nancy Drew-ish”. However, it was a pleasant surprise when the characters and plot developed more dimensionally and there was a lot more to the story than I anticipated. It’s no interweaving story of mystery and suspense, but it was entertaining enough.

Don't bother

I read the reviews before getting this book but on listening to it I'm wondering if I had the right one.....This is the most boring unbelievable rubbish ever. Fantasy trying to be crime, I laughed at the ridiculousness of it.

an intriguing and gripping tail.

I enjoyed this. I listened to the audio version over the course of 3 days whilst making dinner or doing chores.. had me intrigued from start to near the end.. predictable ending but I liked the characters so didn't mind the 'everything comes good' ending.

The end couldn't have come sooner!

On what planet was this a number one bestseller? I kept listening to this book in the hopes that it was going to have a 'twist' at the end...sadly not. If you enjoy a predictable narrative with plenty of reinforcing, repetitive plot reminders and unrealistic characterisations then this is the book for you! The book is appropriately titled. I feel robbed of the hours I spent listening to it.

Not what you expect

Initially listening I thought I knew, the story after introducing the characters - but I was wrong - this book is an awesome thriller to listen to ......

what a waste of time. story messy and soppy.

struggled to finish. only did as something to do while on a long haul flight. found myself thinking I could have written this better and that's saying something! pretty unbelievable and poorly thought out.
