❤️ Happy Valentine’s Day!! ❤️
A missing child trope written by K. L. Slater, you betcha I was going to be right there at the forefront reading this. This became one of my midnight reads as the intrigue and the secrets of the past demanded my complete attention.
Walking from home could be a peril, and 9 year old Grace and her parents realized that when she suddenly vanished. One blind bend of the road and one moment of inattention, changed their lives, and saving Grace and bringing her back home was all Lucie and Blake wanted.
K. L. Slater’s writing once again ignited my imagination regarding the whereabouts of the child and made me follow the many red herrings placed strategically to lead the mind down the narrow off-roads. Written in 2 timelines, the book could both reveal and horrify me the way naivete and innocence could be captured and used down the merry road.
Predictable theme and slightly weird truth reveals niggled me. Yet the fast pace, hidden secrets, twisty ending made this an enjoyable read till 2am.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Bookouture, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!!

Is the missing children trope all done up? Which is your favorite book in this trope?
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.
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.
