Then she vanishes by Claire Douglas #ProvidedForReview #BookReview #Favourite #ThenSheVanishes @Dougieclaire @sriya__v @PenguinUKBooks

Are you looking for a great thriller with a twist I doubt you will see coming?

A well written novel?

And maybe a new favourite author?

Then can I recommend Then she vanishes by Claire Douglas – It kept me reading when I should have been sleeping. And I love my sleep.

Book Blurb:

One missing. One a murderer. One trying to find the truth.

Flora has her whole life ahead of her – until the summer night she vanishes.

Her sister Heather was a good girl – until the spring morning she kills two people.

Jess Fox was once like a sister to them both.

But called home to investigate Heather’s crime, she begins to wonder if she really knew either sister at all . . .

I am sure Then she vanishes by Claire Douglas will be featuring in my top reads of 2019 post at the end of the year. It was great. I didn’t want to put it down.

I was hooked from the very first page. From the very first sentence.

“I feel calm as I watch the sun rise behind the row of ice-cream coloured houses. Not as I imagined a person would feel who’s about to commit murder.”

Page 1.

You would want to keep reading, wouldn’t you?

I thought that Then she vanishes was well written. It was well paced. And the characters were all very believable. It was good. I finished the book and I had no complaints. Then she vanishes ticked all the boxes for me. I was entertained.

I really liked the structure that Claire Douglas used. There were multiple POVs and a dual timeline going on, but I felt it all worked well and built up the tension and mystery to an ending that I didn’t see coming. At all. I wasn’t even close with any of my guesses. It wasn’t a surprise twist out of nowhere, it was an extremely well plotted hard hitter of an ending. That ending swung a punch – It was emotional, heart-wrenching and memorable.

And Claire Douglas did a fantastic job at building small cliffhangers and leaving the reader with more and more questions at the end of the chapters. It all made for a book I didn’t want to put down. And the book had me glued to the page right from the very beginning and I devoured it.

Have you read it? What did you think?

If you haven’t picked up The she vanished by Claire Douglas I suggest you do. It is worth a read.

I received a copy of the book from the publisher – Thank you! And thank you to Sriya Varadharajan for inviting me to be part of the blog tour.
