Her One Mistake by Heidi Perks Review

Her One mistake by Heidi Perks is a compelling thriller that covers every parents worst nightmare: a child gone in the blink of an eye. The reader can't help but wonder about Charlotte's real involvement in the child's disappearance but then you start asking yourself questions about another character's weird behaviour. And then there's the mother, Harriet, who your heart can't help but to break as she becomes overly emotional following her daughter's disappearance. Although the author left hints about what happened, there were plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing until the end. This is definitely a book that kept me on the edge of my seat. It didn't leave one moment for the reader to get bored. I couldn't put it down.

The story alternates between the two main characters, Charlotte and Harriet, and goes back and forth before and after Alice's disappearance. It also includes some of Harriet's diary entries. This was a well-written and intense novel about manipulation, friendship and deceit through secrets that had me hooked from the very start. I look forward to reading more books from the author.

Thank you to NetGalley and Simon & Schuster Canada for my copy in exchange of an honest review.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Here's a quick synopsis:
It all started at the school fair…
Charlotte was supposed to be looking after the children, and she swears she was. She only took her eyes off of them for one second. But when her three kids are all safe and sound at the school fair, and Alice, her best friend Harriet’s daughter, is nowhere to be found, Charlotte panics. Frantically searching everywhere, Charlotte knows she must find the courage to tell Harriet that her beloved only child is missing. And admit that she has only herself to blame.

Harriet, devastated by this unthinkable, unbearable loss, can no longer bring herself to speak to Charlotte again, much less trust her. Now more isolated than ever and struggling to keep her marriage afloat, Harriet believes nothing and no one. But as the police bear down on both women trying to piece together the puzzle of what happened to this little girl, dark secrets begin to surface—and Harriet discovers that confiding in Charlotte again may be the only thing that will reunite her with her daughter....
