Today iit’s my turn on the blog tour for Find Me. My review is written with thanks to the team at Bookouture for inviting me on the tour and for my copy of the book.
I’ll never forget that day. It was blisteringly hot, and I begged our mother for an ice cream. As we left you with Dad, I didn’t know it would be the last time I saw your face. Minutes later, we returned to the end of the pier where we had parked your pushchair. Dad was asleep on a bench, and your little pink blanket was empty. You had vanished.
Twenty-five years later. The morning of the anniversary of Jess’s disappearance starts like every other for her sister Kate – a rushed school run, a cold cup of coffee and a quick scan of the news for updates. But when her phone beeps with a message from an unknown number, everything changes.
I know what happened to Jess.
Finally, Kate’s a step closer to getting answers to the questions that have tormented her for so long. Why was her mother so angry that day? How did her father sleep through his own daughter’s abduction? And when the police car came screeching towards the pier, how is it that nobody saw a single thing?
As she drives her young family to the seaside town to meet the mystery messenger, she feels uneasy. Who are they and why did they reach out now? But before Kate finds out, history repeats itself and her world is turned upside down once more.
Then Kate receives one final, terrifying message… will her pursuit of the truth cost the lives of everyone she has ever loved?
This completely unputdownable psychological thriller will have you hooked from the very first page. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and The Wife Between Us.
There are lots of books about missing children, but Find Me approaches the subject from a different angle and Carla Kovach writes in such a compelling way that this really stands out from other titles. I didn’t want to put this book down and I read the whole book in just one day!
The story is narrated alternately by Kate and Natalie. It doesn’t take long for their lives to come together and I really enjoyed seeing both sides of what had happened to Jessica. Natalie’s narrative, in particular, helped Kovach to introduce us to a wide range of characters living in Looe and it is clear that they all have secrets of some kind. I was in my element trying to work out how they were all involved!
Towards the end of the novel, the tension increases tenfold as we get closer to the answers. There were parts where I was holding my breath and I couldn’t wait to see how everything would work out.
Find Me is available from Amazon.
