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. 

It’s been ten years since Ellie disappeared, but Laurel has never given up hope of finding her daughter.

And then one day a charming and charismatic stranger called Floyd walks into a cafĂ© and sweeps Laurel off her feet. 

Before too long she’s staying the night at this house and being introduced to his nine-year-old daughter. 

Poppy is precocious and pretty - and meeting her completely takes Laurel's breath away. 

Because Poppy is the spitting image of Ellie when she was that age. And now all those unanswered questions that have haunted Laurel come flooding back. 

What happened to Ellie? Where did she go? 

Who still has secrets to hide? 

Wow.. just wow! I've been hearing talk about this book on Facebook and around the blogosphere, but honestly, as a mother of 2 teen girls, I was wary of picking it up, as I am with all missing children books. I am always hesitant to read any psychological thrillers, normally I end up not liking them, or figuring out the "culprit" early on and then it's all meh to me. But this book caught me off guard, I had an inkling of an idea of what happened but wasn't 100% sure how everything would play out. 
There were so many twists for me in this book. I stayed interested and couldn't put it down until I knew exactly what happened. 

The story and writing kept me needing to know what was in the next chapter and what exactly had happened to poor Ellie.
