FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE SISTERS – ONE OF THE BEST SELLING DÉBUTS OF 2015 – COMES A TENSE PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER RIPPED STRAIGHT FROM THE HEADLINES . . . 

Twenty years ago
21-year-old Sophie Collier vanishes one night.
She leaves nothing behind but a trainer on the old pier – 
and a hole in the heart of her best friend Francesca.

Now
A body’s been found.
And Francesca’s drawn back to the seaside town she’s tried to forget.
Perhaps the truth of what happened to Sophie will finally come out.
Yet Francesca is beginning to wish she hadn’t returned.

Everywhere she turns are ghosts from her past.
The same old faces and familiar haunts of her youth.
But if someone knows what really happened to Sophie that night then now’s the time to find out – isn’t it?

Except sometimes discovering the truth can cost you everything you hold dear – your family, your sanity and even your life . . .

About this book

I really enjoyed this book — but be warned, it’s unsettling and spooky.

Frankie’s never got over the death of her best friend Sophie.

Eighteen years later, part of her body is washed up near Oldcliffe, the seaside town where she grew up. She returns to Oldcliffe to help Sophie’s brother identity the body and find out about his sister’s death…

Well written and engaging, Local Girl Missing is just a little bit creepy. Using Sophie’s diaries as a counter to Frankie’s current day narration, the story weaves its tale with twists and turns that make you question what you knew.

Well worth a read 5 sparkling stars 🏨🏨🏨🏨🏨

I am obsessed with books.  In fact, I'd rather be reading than doing anything else.   I enjoy trying out new books and new authors; I do like to "mix and match" genres.  I often have access to books before they are published and would welcome the opportunity to review most books... just not horror or sci-fi, please :)
