And then, in the blink of an eye, Ellie was gone.
Ten years on, Laurel has never given up hope of finding Ellie. And then she meets a charming and charismatic stranger who sweeps her off her feet.

Gripping story and great writing

The writing is top notch, really good. I would say it’s one of the best written stories I’ve listened to. Some stories can drag in places but this kept my interest up all the way through. Some of it is horrific, hard to listen to really cause it’s so life like. Narration really good too, there’s nothing worse than narrators not pulling different accents off, but this worked well!

I thought I’d twigged the ending about half way through, I was along the right lines but the unexpected twists mean I was far enough from guessing it all! I would recommend for anyone that likes this genre.
