What really happened the night Flora disappeared?

Review

I loved Then She Vanishes and I was hooked from the first page. Claire Douglas has a wonderful talent of captivating her readers.

This is a beautifully written story about family loss, secrets and revenge. With a dual timeline describing events leading up to Flora’s disappearance in 1994  and present time with her younger sister, Heather, killing a mother and son in Bristol and the events around this killing.

Jess a childhood friend of Heather’s, is a journalist who becomes intrigued by the story around Heather and decides to investigate.

A wonderful story, which I found incredibly addictive.
