  2. She s Not There was a very enjoyable read that was easy to follow and had a decent storyline which kept my attention from start to finish Being a parent myself, you never stop worrying about your children and the thought of them going missing is just devastating So I truly felt for Caroline when she discovered Samantha wasn t in her crib upon checking on her I imagine she must have felt her heart had been torn out, I would having lost my youngest son for only a couple minutes many years ago in a [...]

  4. Many thanks to Netgalley for my copy of this novel in exchange for a fair and honest review I m just going to preface this by stating there must be something wrong with me I have read 2 child abduction books in a row while having a 3 year old and a 7 month old at home I think its officially time for a change of plot I ve only read one other book by Joy Fielding called The Wild Zone, and while I enjoyed it, there s no comparison as she has only grown talented as a storyteller Carole Shipley and [...]

  5. OK I m playin among the stars here I was fullout ready to give this one a 4 star review However, this would be a 3.5 if the category existed Reasons to follow His answer was as direct, as forceful, as an arrow to the heart You shouldn t have left your kids alone Caroline Shipley and her husband, Hunter, are celebrating their anniversary at a beautiful Mexican resort But they are certainly not alone in their getaway The Shipley s are accompanied by their two young daughters, Michelle and Samantha [...]

  6. 3.5 It was rather refreshing to read a suspense story without explicit violence or descriptive paragraphs of murder Although somewhat light and not as tightly written as some this is a compulsively readable story Kidnapped child, lightly based on the McCann kidnapping, a family in crisis, the journalists trying the mother in the press all made this a quick flowing story Interesting characters, really wanted to see who done it and why A few things didn t ring true for me but you can t have it all [...]

  7. A few years ago I did a binge read of most of Joy Fielding s books They re what I would describe as psychological thriller light They are not my usual thing, but they suited my mood at the time And then I hit a couple of particularly weak ones, and I lost interest She s very prolific, so I think her efforts tend to be uneven Last year, I read and enjoyed Someone Is Watching I thought Joy Fielding was back to form And I liked She s Not There just as much Be forewarned, if you have difficulty read [...]

  9. SHE S NOT THERE by Joy Fielding is a light psychological thriller without any gore or violence, a nice change from what I normally read, but still packs a real emotional rollercoaster This is the first book I have read by this author but it won t be the last A Canadian novelist and actress She lives in Toronto, Ontario, just like me so that explains why I like her and her writing This is a fast paced light psychological thriller, a child abduction story, told from the mother s point of view, the [...]

  10. Basing a novel on a real life tragedy that has accounted for a wealth of headlines and proved so divisive as the disappearance of Madeleine McCann from Portugal in 2007 is undoubtedly a sticky wicket and mired with potential pitfalls Firstly, from a UK perspective, the story has rarely been off the front pages and without meaning to be callous, the majority of the general public think that the handling of the investigation has proved an enormous waste of money Indeed it is hard to justify how mu [...]

  11. Upon reading the blurb, I instantly thought of the tragic true life kidnapping of Madeleine McCann, a three year old girl who vanished from the family s holiday apartment in Portugal whilst her parents were out to dinner at a nearby restaurant This year marks the ten year anniversary of her disappearance According to Google thanks Google , police have recorded thousands of potential sightings of Maddie since she went missing I can only imagine what a roller coaster of an emotional ride her paren [...]

  13.

  14. This is the first book I have read by this author and it certainly won t be the last This is one of those slow burners that gently draws you in and then before you know it, it has got you hook, line and sinker, not allowing you to go anywhere until you get to the very end.You can t help but think of the Madeleine McCann case when it comes to this book A couple having a meal with friends close by whilst the children are left in the hotel room unsupervised The majority of people certainly hold the [...]

  15. As the blurb said, a lost child, a phone call fifteen years later claiming to be the lost child, and then flashbacks along with the present and future repercussions All this sounded great which made me request for the book This is my first Joy Fielding book, I have heard of her but haven t read any of her previous works Hoping to lose myself in the book, I started the story with great enthusiasm The story starts well, there is the feeling of anticipation of how, when, why The author has a great [...]

  17. Way back in 2006 I read a novel called The Deep End A suspense tour de force, it caused me to become a fan of Joy Fielding She s not there is another solid suspense story which has disturbing similarities to the true case of the disappearance of Madeleine McCann I m not sure if the author used this case as a jumping off point for her novel, but it seems likely.The story is told from two perspectives fifteen years apart Caroline Shipley, her husband Hunter, and their two young daughters travel fr [...]

  18. Joy Fielding writes light mysteries and most of them are very entertaining Her latest had a good premise but it was also a let down for me because it lacked plausibility I was not the perfect mother when my children were growing up but I always looked after their safety and would never have left them alone in a hotel or anywhere else I have to say no one but an irresponsible mother, and she was not, would leave her two small children in a hotel while going to dinner even if her husband did insis [...]

  19. I would actually give this book a 3.5 but I could barely put it down so I bumped it to 4 I received this from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.I saw another reviewer refer to it as a psychological light thriller and I think that s a perfect description It is obviously based on the Madeline McCann case where the parents left their children unattended while they went to a dinner with friends at a restaurant while vacationing in Spain.In this one, the parents leave their daughters alone [...]
