Publisher's Summary

Happy. Married. Missing.

Leigh Fletcher: the happily married stepmum to two gorgeous boys goes missing on Monday. Her husband, Mark, says he knows nothing of her whereabouts. She simply went to work and just never came home. Their family is shattered.

Kai Janssen: married to wealthy Dutch businessman Daan, she vanishes the same week. Kai left their luxurious penthouse and glamourous world without a backward glance. She seemingly evaporated into thin air. Daan is distraught.     

DC Clements knows that people disappear all the time - far too frequently. Most run away from things, some run towards, others are taken but find their way back. A sad few never return. These two women are from very different worlds, their disappearances are unlikely to be connected. And yet, at a gut level, the DC believes they are.

How could these women walk away from their families, husbands and homes willingly? Clements is determined to unearth the truth, no matter how shocking and devastating it may be.

The Sunday Times number one best seller Adele Parks returns with her most provocative, compelling book to date.

A gooden

This is terrific a story of interesting characters and a great plot. I’ve always wanted to know what it would be like to write such a story. Couldn’t cope in real life though.

Great page turner

I really enjoyed this page turner of a book. It took me places I expected and places I didn’t. It had twists and turns and was a great fun read. Everything I enjoy about domestic thrillers.

Both of you

I found this nook very long winded and repetitive.. Started off well but I lost interest a quarter way through.

It doesn’t get any better, avoid.

Before I start it’s probably worth me pointing out that I don’t normally leave bad reviews. Usually if a book is bad I send it back.

I stuck with this book because I kept thinking ‘it has to get better in the next chapter’ it doesn’t, if anything the plot becomes increasingly stupid.

It’s as though the author had a few passable ideas but was in a hurry to get them onto a page. The plot is unbelievable and the editors haven’t sense-checked it. As the first lockdown is mentioned in the story I can only imagine that the author had promised to get a book to the publisher while trying to home educate three children.

In the hands of a more skilful writer the ideas could have been convincing, this is set in the real, but the story is unbelievable and just daft.

The narrator does a good job with the material available to them.

Don’t make the same mistake that I did. Don’t believe the hype.

I was so looking forward to reading Both Of You

I'm a massive Adele Parks fan, I've flown her flag on many, many occasions even convincing people at airports to purchase her latest book but this one is dire. Completely unbelievable, totally unreachable and basically a load of garbage. I'm sure authors when they reach a certain standard are paid to write a book every year but it would be better to wait for a great idea than to push out such rubbish. With so many new up-and-coming authors in the wings, I'm afraid the Queen of Suspense has definitely lost her crown with this one.

Disappointing.

Was able to guess far too early on who the kidnapper was. I couldn't invest in any of the characters. I found it somewhat "flat" ...but others may enjoy it. I've read worse, unfortunately.

Part porn part yawn,,,,!!!!

Absolutely dreadful book. I got to chapter 11 and could take no more. Chapter ELEVEN and still nothing has actually happened!!!!!
Both main characters were so unlikeable that I couldn't give a stuff about either of them. The narrator droned on and on with her annoying voice with a put on croak.
I usually enjoy books by Adele Parkes but this one was dreadful... I should have read the reviews first.
I returned the book and got my credit back!!!!
Don't waste your credit

Outstanding as always

Firstly, I don’t usually write reviews, if I don’t enjoy a book I bare in mind the author has ploughed everything they have into their work, some things are better left unsaid.........was a bit aghast at the other reviews. Hence now writing a review .
I’ve read a number of Adele’s books and have never been disappointed I’m glad to say that stands.
The story is gripping it twists and it turns and is full of intrigue and surprises/shocks, It’s compelling, and interesting that it was set within the “possibilities” of the beginning of lockdown. The characters were interesting I enjoyed learning enough about each of them to cast suspicion and intrigue. The story is exiting and believable. Unlike others I thought the ending apt, brief, but unlike others I personally enjoy that, I like being left to imagine what could happen next........ I think that’s the key to a fantastic read. I want to be left pondering.
Amazing work, can’t wait for the next one.

Not enough of an ending leave you needing more...

Love Adele Parks book and did enjoy this book, her writing is amazing but was so disappointed it didn’t have more to ending, was pretty obvious throughout who did it! Really needed a better round up. I told my friend who I always share recommendations, especially Adele parks books, not to bother with this one because ending to abrupt and frustrating!!!!
