    Now you see her by Heidi Perks a five-star read that you will be compelled to read. This was such a great book, its emotionally charged and thrilling to read, told on a duel POV of two parents who are friends until an event that would rock anyone to the core. There is a clear story a before the event and after story, a clear break to the friendship and a fault line that can never be fixed. The pain in this story is almost like another character its one that I can only hope no one faces, but I the reality of life sadly some will. The author has a great talent in sucking you into the story and making you feel like you are right there Harriet and Charlotte like you were watching little Alice when she went missing, this story will keep you gripped you will be reading this and need to sleep or go out or do things in general and you won’t be able to as you will feel compelled to read the next page to find out what that plot twist was about and who is the real guilty party. Once you pick this story up you won’t put it down.

    Worthy of a Full Five Stars - and more!

    What an awesome read! Never in a million years could I have predicted how things were going to turn out. Charlotte reached out the hand of friendship to Harriet five years ago as she was new to the area and didn't seem to have any friends of her own. Five years on, they are fellow mums and whilst Charlotte is more relaxed with three children, Harriet is a bit of a 'helicopter' mum with her daughter Alice. Charlotte is therefore delighted when Alice is left in her care one Saturday and heads off the the school fete with all four children in tow. However, before too long she realises that now she only has three of them in her sight ... This is a tremendously intricate read. Told partly in the present and partly in retrospect, it very quickly demanded one hundred percent of my attention, and I found myself loathe to lay it aside even to get some sleep. It is fairly obvious that something isn't quite right: Harriet is aware of it, Charlotte suspects it after a fashion, and the police know that things don't add up. But can they work it out? Indeed, could I? With several twists and surprises along the way, this novel hooked me from the first page to the last. Compulsive reading due to excellent writing, skilfully created characters and a very clever plot made this book totally worthy of a full five stars - and more! My thanks to publisher Random House UK for approving my request via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.

    Dark Dorset

    I was pleasantly surprised by this book, it really does keep you guessing - you will probably figure out roughly whats going on but there are a few twisty bits and red herrings thrown in there. Admittedly I probably enjoyed this more because of my brain whirring to figure the sequence of events out than I did the actual book but it did get the old grey matter functioning (something that happens less and less with this genre as time goes on). The story has two narrators: Charlotte - Separated mum of three, still in touch with her ex and you get the impression that it's not just for the sake of the children. She's quite content with her life, has a fairly wide circle of friends but is happy to stay home of an evening and just relax once the children are in bed but she is making an effort to get out more, if only to show Tom that she still has a social life (particularly if it means he has to come over and look after the children). Seems to be a reliable narrator and you can really feel her anguish when Alice goes missing at the school fete under her care. Harriet - Married to Brian and the ultimate helicopter parent of Alice. Something just feels off about her from the start but this could be put down to how protective she is of her daughter. As things unfold you realise that she isn't the most reliable narrator and could well inhabit a fantasy world, but you are never sure who is telling the truth - her or Brian. If Brian is right then she is mentally ill and if she is right then Brian is the one with the problem; the author does make it cloudy and hard to unpick until quite a way in to the book. The book shifts timelines quite frequently and moves from the aftermath of Alice's disappearance to the events leading up to it and back again. With snatches told from the interrogation room where Charlotte is being interviewed again a couple of weeks after the disappearance and after some undisclosed event has taken place. Moving back through the day of the fete and even before Alice is born. The timeshifts are dealt with smoothly and really do help keep the tension ratcheted up. It deals with the procedural elements well and the FLO plays a large role in the book, usually they are glossed over but Angela is quite a strong presence in the story. It also details with the social media judgments passed on Charlotte and how this affects her daily life and her relationships with her friends and other school mums, it also shows the fallout on her children because of it. A really strong proponent of the genre and one I thoroughly enjoyed.

    Now you see her

    It sarts off at a steady pace, then the intrigue starts. As you read you begin to get an idea of what's happening. But how wrong that idea was! The story begins to lead you into a world of deceit and psychological torment. There is a surprise around every corner. Brilliantly written. Well worth the 5 stars it deserves. Thank you. Looking forward to the next read.
