Have You Seen Her by Lisa Hall book cover.

Bonfire Night. A missing girl.

Anna only takes her eyes off Laurel for a second. She thought Laurel was following her mum through the crowds. But in a heartbeat, Laurel is gone.

Laurel’s parents are frantic. As is Anna, their nanny. But as the hours pass, and Laurel isn’t found, suspicion grows.

Someone knows what happened to Laurel. And they’re not telling.

Have You Seen Her is the breath-taking new thriller with a killer twist from bestseller Lisa Hall.

Have You Seen Her by Lisa Hall is published by HQ (2nd May 2019) and is available to purchase in digital, paperback and audiobook formats.


As I really enjoyed reading The Party last year, I was quick to pick up Have You Seen Her.

Lisa Hall has a marvellous ability of drawing her reader into her stories. They are fast-paced, have plenty of suspense and shocking twist endings.

Have You Seen Her did not disappoint, I loved it and thought it was another great read.

The story begins with a young girl going missing at a bonfire night. Her mum and nanny are frantic with worry and a search for Laurel begins immediately. It follows the relationship between the mother and father, Fran and Dominic, and how they cope with the disappearance. Their nanny, Anna narrates as first person and she discloses in time her secrets and throughout her thoughts and feelings towards each character.

The tension between characters I found believable for such a traumatic time. I enjoyed guessing the guilty party, as there seemed a few, but also desperate for them to find Laurel.

Have You Seen Her is a thriller with great suspense writing to keep you hooked throughout, with an excellent ending which I loved. I did not guess the double twist. It’s an addictive read that you need to make time for before starting.

Lisa loves words, reading and everything there is to love about books. She has dreamed of being a writer since she was a little girl – either that or a librarian – and after years of talking about it, was finally brave enough to put pen to paper (and let people actually read it). Lisa lives in a small village in Kent, surrounded by her towering TBR pile, a rather large brood of children, dogs, chickens and ponies and her long-suffering husband. She is also rather partial to eating cheese and drinking wine.
