This morning, my daughter sat right here, munching her breakfast, too excited to finish it. Now, she is missing.
The day after her ninth birthday, Lucie and Blake Sullivan agree, for the very first time, to let their daughter, Grace, make the four-minute walk back home alone from a friend’s house just down the street.
They joke with friends about hiding behind bushes to ensure she is safe. But the joke turns sour when Grace does not appear.
Despite the best efforts of the police and local community, Grace seems to have vanished into thin air. With hope fading fast, Lucie knows she can rely on her husband to support her through such dark times. That is until the day she makes a shocking discovery, hidden in Blake’s desk, and suddenly she begins to doubt everything she knew about the man she married.
But Lucie harbours a terrible secret of her own. One that she has never shared with anyone, even Blake …
And as the search for Grace reaches fever pitch, Lucie receives a terrifying message. If she is ever to see Grace again, Lucie has no choice but to face the past she tried hard to bury forever. And she must do it alone.
The most gripping psychological thriller you’ll read this year from the bestselling author K.L. Slater. If you love The Wife Between Us or Gone Girl, you’ll be totally hooked on Finding Grace.
Wow! This book is totally unputdownable!
I was gripped right from the start with this book. What should have been quite straightforward, a little girl walking the five minute walk home from her friend’s house, with adults keeping an eye surreptitiously at either end, turns into a nightmare when she doesn’t make it home.
As the book progressed, I had so many suspicions. But there’s so many twists and turns in this fantastic plot, as more lies are uncovered, and I did not see the end coming at all.
I was desperate to get to the end and find out Lucie’s past secrets, and to find out what had happened to Grace.
Definitely one of the big psychological thrillers of this year, compelling and addictive.
