Summary

You only let her go for a second… Now she’s gone.

Erika Rice is in an elevator with her four-year-old daughter Alice when all the lights go out. It jerks to a stop on a deserted floor of apartments and the little girl runs out into the corridor. 

But before Erika can follow her the doors slam shut again. Now her daughter is nowhere to be seen.

Erika was about to take Alice away for a fresh start, far from her troubled past, when the child vanished. How could a four-year-old disappear into thin air?

And with no one to help her, will Erika ever find her daughter?

A gripping and addictive psychological thriller that will have you holding on tight to the ones you love. If you enjoyed Behind Closed Doors, Silent Child, and I Let You Go, you won’t want to miss The Day I Lost You!

Ridiculous and implausible

Well, it’s been a very long time since I have read something quite this bad. The plot is so implausible that I was tempted on several occasions to just give up. I feel that book was written to fit the twist at the end and was not fully thought through. I would not recommend this book to anyone. The narrator did the best she could with material she had. Don’t bother.

Waste of good listening time

Figured it out by chapter 10. Repetitive and absolutely unbelievable! The whole piece on why the police were delayed would never happen, nor would anyone believe that excuse. The whole story is just plain silly, but not in a funny way.

A question !!!!! Ughhhhh.

If you have children took understand this. Im going to ask a question as my review.
If your 4 year old jumped off a suck elevator through the barely open doors on the 7th floor leaving you to go back then to the lobby... What's the first thing you would do? She doesn't.

What 4 year old girl calls the bathroom a " toilet"?

What mother after losing her 4 year old is miss concerned about her ex being angry than what is happening to her MISSING CHILD?

In what world does a bunch of adults judge a frantic mother who has just lost her small child? In this day and time don't MOST people get that it's a very very serious situation?

Finally, does the author know much about children or being a mother?

I'm telling you I have no nails my finger tips look like erasers. Not from suspense, frustration.
Also, yelling at an audiobook rarely changes anything. Just throwing that out there.

Oh dear God.... When she finally finally asks for someone to call the cops she is told to " freshen up" she actually does go to the ladies room and FRESHENS UP. FRESHENS UP. Because we all knew when you lose your precious child even before the cops arrive took need to get a little highlighter going and refresh that lip gloss.

If my child was missing in a high rise at 4 years old I would care of I had poop in my pants I would be calling cops, screaming her name and praying to every god I could think of.

This book misses the mark on the emotion the fear and the urgency of the situation so badly I can't finish it. This is a credit refund situation, and possibly a Xanax. She is actually worried the people in the apt will make a COMPLAINT ABOUT HER. Huh?????

The narration... It's not very good but then she doesn't have much to work with.

What's was this author thinking?
