Local Girl Missing – Claire Douglas ✶✶✶✶✶

The old Victorian pier was once a thing of beauty. It’s also where twenty-one-year-old Sophie Collier vanished eighteen years ago. Francesca has spent the last twenty years haunted by the disappearance of her best friend. But when she receives a phone call from Sophie’s brother saying that a body has been found, she knows she can’t keep hiding from what happened. With her own secrets to keep, Francesca doesn’t relish the idea of digging up the past or returning to Oldcliffe. But it is time to go back to where she grew up, and it looks like she isn’t the only one there hiding truths…

Right I have to start off by saying this has to be one of the best books I have read so far this year. Amazing. I managed to devour this book in TWO sittings, TWO! The ending will have your jaw dropping, it did with me. Brilliant twist. Brilliantly written! Absolutely loved it. I would highly suggest you all go read this book NOW if you haven’t already. I have a new favourite author Claire Douglas. Thanks to Netgalley I got the chance to read this story and review it. I read Claire’s previous book The Sisters and loved that just as much as this book. Brilliant writer who knows how to shock the readers with dramatic twists and turns and keep them hooked throughout. I know I probably sound crazy right now but honestly I LOVED THIS BOOK. One I will not forget for a while.. It was one of those books that I was so engrossed in that any tiny noise in my house made me jump, love books like that. I cannot wait for her next book already, hurry up! I don’t need to say this but I found it easy to read and loved how the chapters focused on the two main characters Frankie and Sophie clearly enough to not be confusing. Excellent. A five star read for me.

Local Girl Missing is the PERFECT story for readers who enjoy an outstanding suspense, mystery, thriller and drama filled story with plenty of lies, secrets, twists and turns. Enjoy, I did.
