Someone took your daughter. And nobody believes you…
Three-year-old Ally was found alone in a parking lot.
She was barefoot and dressed only in a yellow sundress. In the middle of winter.
What kind of person would abandon their daughter?
Fifteen years later and Ally has a new family. 
But her real father has sent her a letter.
And now Ally is missing. 

A gripping twist-filled thriller that will have you looking over your shoulder. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and Teresa Driscoll. 

Thank you to Bookouture for my copy of this book. The premise was good but unfortunately for me, the book didn’t live up to it.

I am going to keep this review short and sweet. I chose not to review during the blog tour as like I said I wasn’t a massive fan of this book. I’m going to give a quick list of the things I liked and disliked


  • It was quick to read


  • I didn’t engage with the characters
  • The story went off on tangents which I didn’t think had any relevance
  • I didn’t think the story was very realistic.

Sadly I don’t have much more to add on this one.
