The Girl Who Came Back by Kerry Wilkinson
After reading Kerry Wilkinson's Two Sisters, I knew I'd be reading more books by this author. When NetGalley offered The Girl Who Came Back, I quickly made my request.
If anything, I liked this one even better than Two Sisters.
Thirteen years earlier, Olivia Adams disappeared from her back garden. Now, Olivia sits in a coffee shop observing her mother and unsure of whether or not she will approach her.
Olivia does reach out to her mother who has never given up hope. But whether the young woman is Olivia or an impostor, whoever she is--she is not universally welcomed.
This one hooked me at the beginning and held my interest until the end. Even when some of the puzzle works itself out, there are a few surprises to come.
Oh, yes, I will be seeking more of this young author's books!
(I've had this draft ready for a couple of weeks, holding out to schedule it for closer to publication date, but just read Lark's review of Good as Gone by Amy Gentry which has a plot that sounds similar. I've added Gentry's book to my list as I want to compare the two novels.)
Read in July.
Psychological/Suspense. Sept. 8, 2017. Print length: 303 pages.
