Books-On-Tour - Two Little Girls by Frances Vick

I'm very excited to share my review for Frances Vick's new novel, Two Little Girls. Thank you to Bookouture for the eARC and the Blog Tour invite. 

About the book:

An innocent girl is taken. The killer confesses.
But that’s not the whole story. That’s not even the beginning...

It’s 1985 and the disappearance of ten-year-old Lisa Cook shocks the nation. Her best friend, Kirsty, traumatised and fearful, gives evidence that helps to put the Cook family’s lodger behind bars.

…But what if Kirsty made a mistake?

Now, decades later, Kirsty leaves a life she loves to move back to the hometown she hates – tortured by her memories, she’s determined to finally uncover the truth about what happened to Lisa that day. But someone is waiting for her there, someone close to her family. Someone who is hoping to finish off a job that was started years ago…
An absolutely gripping emotional drama for fans of The Couple Next DoorWhisper Me This and Laura Elliot

My thoughts:

Two Little Girls by Frances Vick was a great story! It was the first book I read by the author and I really enjoyed her work. I thought she did a phenomenal job blending the innocence of the children with the disturbed minds of adults around them.

The two little girls, Lisa and Kirsty, are best friends, but they are completely different from one another. Where Kirsty is impressionable and looks up to Lisa, Lisa is a liar and likes to distort the truth.

After Lisa goes missing, Kirsty has to help the police in their investigation, but when she tells them what they want and maybe put an innocent boy in prison, the reader has to wonder how police can coerce people into making false statements.

This was a quick and easy read and it had me turning pages until the very end, which was not what I expected at all. It didn't leave a moment for me to get bored. I will be reading more from the author in the future.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
