Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Now You See Her by Heidi Perks.

She was your responsibility. And now she's missing.

Charlotte is looking after her best friend’s daughter the day she disappears. She thought the little girl was playing with her own children. She swears she took her eyes off them for only a second.

Now, Charlotte must do the unthinkable: tell her best friend, Harriet, that her only child is missing. The child she was meant to be watching.

Devastated, Harriet can no longer bear to see Charlotte. No one could expect her to trust her friend again.

Only now she needs to. Because two weeks later Harriet and Charlotte are both being questioned separately by the police. And secrets are about to surface.

Someone is hiding the truth about what really happened to Alice.

Pause-resisting psychological suspense from an exciting new talent, perfect for fans of Shari Lapena's The Couple Next Door and Claire Mackintosh's I Let You Go.

Disappointing

This book started really well but descends into an implausible plot. It drags on far too long at the end.

loved it, but one flaw.......SPOILERS

I loved this, but the one thing that I kept thinking was why didn't she just run away with Alice? the end result would have been the same?

Terrible end

The book started Strong and I couldn’t stop listening. Then the story get weaker and weaker and the last chapter is pointless. Could have been so much better

Good start disappointing end

I enjoyed this book until about half way through when the twist was revealed after that it just became silly. The books premise of a stolen child and what happened to her is common ground for these types of psychological thrillers. The twist was however clever and I did not anticipate it, but what happened next takes the suspension of reality to have any chance of believing the rest of the book. Without spoiling the book its difficult to say anymore other than the narration was fairly good. Generally not a book I would recommend.
