I had heard lots of good things about it and I had read some pretty cool reviews and it sounded like a book I would enjoy!
She was fifteen, her mother’s golden girl. She had her whole life ahead of her. And then, in the blink of an eye, Ellie was gone. Ten years on, Laurel has never given up hope of finding her. And then she meets a charming and charismatic stranger who sweeps her off her feet. But what really takes Laurel’s breath away is when she meets his nine-year-old daughter. Because his daughter is the image of Ellie. Now all those unanswered questions that have haunted Laurel come flooding back. What really happened to Ellie? And who still has secrets to hide?
I honestly found this a bit of a struggle to begin with as nothing seemed to move anywhere. But, as I got to half way it really took off and I just HAD to get to the end to confirm my suspicions throughout!! After I finished this book it defines took a couple of days for it to get out of my system and feel ready to take on a new book. An enjoyable read that I would recommend to people who like a book with a twist.
