Good morning / afternoon / evening everyone,
Today I have decided to write a different kind of post. I don’t usually write reviews but this book was definitely worthy of a review.
This is Local Girl Missing by Claire Douglas. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish. Following a diary format, we follow the lives and stories of Francesca Howe and Sophie Collier who were best friends before Sophie made her disappearance.
After finding out Sophie’s remains had been found, Francesca made her way back to their seaside home town to try and figure out what happened the evening Sophie disappeared with help from Sophie’s brother.
I particularly enjoyed the writing style Claire used in this book to write the story and almost make you feel as though you were there in the town – experiencing the things Francesca was experiencing.
The book stays throughout as an eerie atmosphere and there are no moments of pure happiness and blue skies until the very end. The characters are particularly interesting and leave you with questions about them individually and their links towards Sophie’s disappearance. It almost leaves you becoming a detective in the story as there are so many possible links to what happened to Sophie that evening.
This book was a recommendation off one of my friends and I have managed to finish it before them, and was so intrigued by it I simply couldn’t put it down until my questions were answered.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a complete book worm and loves stories with different twists and turns to them, especially if you’re secretly a detective when it comes to story lines like these. You can find Claire through her Twitter by clicking here and finding the book here – Local Girl Missing for £6.18 currently!
This is definitely a different kind of post for me and I really hope you enjoyed it and find the book interesting if you buy it after reading this post!
Until next time,
