After reading previous MH books, I would go as far as to say she was a lot better than Martina Cole and each of her books I have loved. However after reading this new book I am unsure what to say about it. The story is of Sue and Terry Day, an estranged couple whos youngest child has been caught in a fire in Sue's home and their elder daughter has subsequently gone missing. The husband Terry has run off with a younger lover Leanne, and when Sue gets involved with Leannes father Dave, things go terribly wrong. Although the writing was good and I enjoyed the book, I thought it lacked substance and the ending felt slightly rushed. I'm hoping this is just a blip in her career and the book is a "bump in the road" in her otherwise flawless writing and I will wait to read her next book before deciding if she is worth reading again.

I have read all Mandasue's books and while I consider The Charmer her most boring book, Snatched wasn't much better. I'm not saying I hated it but it was so un-realistic and slow.
My first complaint would be the dialogue, especially the slang and when the characters were arguing. Frankly it was embarassing and at times humourous. Sue's friend Julie's chatter is like that of a 5yr old. And her slang when they are in the pub when she calls Sue's love interest 'Sir Dwayne of Dweebdom' is cringe-worthy!
Heller's attempt at teenage arguements is so corny and 1980's.
I am unsure whether Heller wanted the reader to Love, hate or feel sorry foe Sue Day but personally I couldn't stand the character. The woman had no interest in finding out what happened to her daughter and had basically written her off, too busy starting a relationship with the first guy to show any interest in her. Her treatment of Connor made for uncomfortable reading.
Terry Day's relationship with Leanne wasn't believable and frankly annoying and the 'fun day' arranged for Sue went on for so long it became mind-numbing.
Heller's best books were her first three and to be honest the rest have not been in their league.

Have read all of Mandasues books and this is the worse almost as though she is on the same road as Martina and has lost her spark - was such a shame as was so looking forward to this - a very easy read - ok for a holiday read but would recommend Billy Jo, Sadie, Kaitlin or Fallen Angel by other authors as these are excellent

I was gripped from the first page, Mandasue really is a great writer, I've read all her books now, and don't know what I'm going to do without another gripping read in my hands.I just hope she writes another one, there's twists and turns that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Would recommend to anyone who likes a gripping thriller.Thank you Mandasue Heller it's been a privilege to read your books.

really disappointed I have read all her other novels and was surprised at how early I knew who the baddie was... and how obvious the whole plot was... there were details that were quite right either, very little reference to the missing girl by her mother and the whole thing just didnt seem right.

I just loved this book. There was so much going on in it, with twists and turns all the way. I liked the way it took nearly three quarters of the way through the book until you found out what happened to Nicky.....really, really good.

I enjoy reading Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers, and now I can add Mandasue Heller to my list of favourite authors. I would recommend this to everyone.

Format: Paperback
This is the first of MH's books I have read and I have to say I will definitely be going back for more. Not always been a big reader as I need to be captured right from the start, and many books do take time to draw me in. Not with this one though.....from the first page right to the last I was gripped. Only thing I couldnt understand was the geography of this, most of it situated in council estate in Manchester and then Dave Miller's house seems to be not too far away in the country and one minute it was a long way for Sue Day to be going out of Manchester and the next minute she is back doing shopping and back on the estate. Didnt seem to add up. Other than that highly recommended.

This book was good but not the best. I have read most of This authors books but this one was furthest from reality as Nicky was or should have been a main concern. This one I would give 2.5 out of 10.
