My Little Girl by Shalini Boland

I’m so pleased to be part of the tour today for this gripping book. Thanks so much to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Your daughter is missing. Did someone close to you take her?

Seven-year-old Beatrice has gone missing. Her mother Claire’s whole world has been turned upside down in just one moment and she can’t stop shaking. She’s desperate to find her precious daughter, but nothing about the day she disappeared makes sense…

The mother-in-law: Jill was meant to be looking after Beatrice. She says she didn’t take her eyes off the little girl but her version of events doesn’t add up… Claire has never got on with her, so why should she trust her now?

The husband: He should have been with their only child. Instead, he changed the plans without telling Claire. She didn’t think there were any secrets between them, but maybe she was wrong?

The first wife: Laurel has always been jealous of Claire’s family. Has her husband’s ex-wife taken her daughter?

Which one of them is lying? And who really knows where Beatrice is?

From the million-copy bestselling author, this totally addictive psychological thriller will keep you guessing all the way to the final shocking twist. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the TrainGone Girl and The Wife Between Us.

My Review:

Oh wow, this is such a compelling book! Right from the start we are landed straight into the action. Jill has taken her granddaughter out, and in the blink of an eye, she goes missing. The confusion and panic are so well portrayed that it’s real edge-of-your-seat stuff.

Everything about this book combines to make the perfect psychological thriller. The sultry heat of summer provides a languid backdrop that’s totally at odds with the events taking place, but really adds to the atmosphere. The multiple points of view are perfect, making us completely unable to know who to trust, and feeling like everyone is a potential suspect.

The tension just builds and builds, and it’s totally impossible to put this book down. As we near the end, the twists and turns are not like anything that you could have predicted. An absolute smasher of a book, I couldn’t stop reading it. Completely all-consuming and gripping, loved it.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.
