*(Gifted) I received a copy of Finding Grace in exchange for this post, all thoughts and opinions are my own
Today it’s my turn to be on the blog tour for Finding Grace by KL Slater, who happens to be my favourite author at the moment. I reviewed Closer back in October and absolutely loved it! Finding Grace had a lot to live up to for me. Did KL Slater manage to meet my high expectations? Well you will have to read on to find out I’m afraid!
This morning, my daughter sat right here, munching her breakfast, too excited to finish it. Now, she is missing.
The day after her ninth birthday, Lucie and Blake Sullivan agree, for the very first time, to let their daughter, Grace, make the four-minute walk back home alone from a friend’s house just down the street.
They joke with friends about hiding behind bushes to ensure she is safe. But the joke turns sour when Grace does not appear.
Despite the best efforts of the police and local community, Grace seems to have vanished into thin air. With hope fading fast, Lucie knows she can rely on her husband to support her through such dark times. That is until the day she makes a shocking discovery, hidden in Blake’s desk, and suddenly she begins to doubt everything she knew about the man she married.
But Lucie harbours a terrible secret of her own. One that she has never shared with anyone, even Blake …
And as the search for Grace reaches fever pitch, Lucie receives a terrifying message. If she is ever to see Grace again, Lucie has no choice but to face the past she tried hard to bury forever. And she must do it alone.
The most gripping psychological thriller you’ll read this year from the bestselling author K.L. Slater. If you love The Wife Between Us or Gone Girl, you’ll be totally hooked on Finding Grace.
My Thoughts on Finding Grace
Finding Grace is every parents nightmare. You are reluctant to let your 9 year old walk a short distance to home, but then when do you start to let them have a little independence?
When Lucie and Blake make the decision to let their 9 year old daughter, Grace walk up the street to home from her friends house, their worst nightmare and every parents nightmare happens. She doesn’t reach home. She disappears in a blink of an eye.
Both parents have secrets to hide, and it all starts coming out in the wash while the hunt for Grace continues.
I do like the psychological side of this book. It’s what KL Slater does best. You are gripped from a few pages in, I know I was. In fact I read it in just a couple of evenings. It’s fast paced and will get you hooked.
Another grand slam of a book from KL Slater, and I can’t wait to read her next one!
