Her parents ultimately divorced, moving on with their lives as best they could. Her mother Sarah remarried and had a new baby. Her father Dan spiraled out of control and was left a crushed, defeated man.When out of the blue, Little Olivia simply skips back into their lives as a teenager, some 13 years later, and no one can believe it...or her! Could it really be the same missing girl from so long ago? Or is this an imposter trying to embed herself into the lives of those so vulnerable and desperate to have her back. Kerry Wilkinson delivers a very taught, twisty thriller that was extremely hard to put down. I was all-in from the beginning. We set aside a weekend to read this book but basically it took just over one day.(Interrupted only by work)!! Although I did figure out some of the twists along the way, it certainly didn’t deter my enjoyment of this book at all!! I still hung on every word, even reading beyond the goals we set for ourselves!My first book from this author and will definitely be on the look-out for more! Highly recommend for all psychological thriller lovers!Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Kerry Wilkinson for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.For this review and our full traveling sister review please visit Brenda and Norma's Fantastic Traveling Sister Book Blog http://www.twogirlslostinacouleereadi....

Good Books The Girl Who Came Back A parent will always know their own child... right?Another winner for Kerry Wilkinson and Bookouture. Very gripping read, I never wanted to put it down and flew through it quite quickly. His style of writing is easy to read and engaging. It really keeps your attention. Six year old Olivia Adams disappeared from her garden one afternoon without a trace. Things like that just don't happen in little Stoneridge... until that day. She becomes a cautionary tale, the reason parents want their children home before dark, why they hold them extra close. You don't want to end up like Olivia, do you?It's thirteen years later and Olivia is back... or is she? She has a strange, sort of vague story about being taken by travelers. She's stingy on the details. She doesn't want to pursue any legal action. But mom looks into her eyes and she just knows her daughter has finally returned to her. Some people just aren't convinced, including her bully of a second husband. Who is right? Very enjoyable read. I went back and forth as I tried to figure out what was going on. I did figure it out a bit early, but Wilkinson threw some extras in there that made it stay interesting and kept me engaged in the book. It lost a little favor from me when the police were only vaguely interested in her return, I'm not sure if that's realistic or not but it just struck me as a little odd. All in all, another fine book from Bookouture and definitely worth the read!I received a copy of this book from Net Galley and Bookouture, thank you! My review is honest and unbiased.

  6. Typically, if a book is dealing with the return of a missing child, the perspective is from that of the parent s or others trying to discern if the child is the real deal Here, the book is told from the perspective of the child After 13 years of being missing, Olivia returns to the town of her childhood and finds her mom Her mom is convinced it s her, but Olivia s new stepfather and his brother aren t Given that she was five when she was nabbed, it s understandable that her memories of her early [...]

  11. I love everything Kerry Wilkinson writes he has such an addictive, page turning style of writing And this book is definitely one of his very best From the first line to very last, this was a superb, mind blowing read Everything I thought I knew was turned on its head as I kept reading, every page revealing something knew that made me question myself and the characters This is the kind of book I love best, where you don t know whom to trust, where every character is flawed yet supremely human, wh [...]
