Publisher's Summary

This morning, my daughter sat right here, munching her breakfast, too excited to finish it. Now, she is missing.

The day after her ninth birthday, Lucie and Blake Sullivan agree, for the very first time, to let their daughter, Grace, make the four-minute walk back home alone from a friend’s house just down the street. 

They joke with friends about hiding behind bushes to ensure she is safe. But the joke turns sour when Grace does not appear. 

Despite the best efforts of the police and local community, Grace seems to have vanished into thin air. With hope fading fast, Lucie knows she can rely on her husband to support her through such dark times. That is until the day she makes a shocking discovery, hidden in Blake’s desk, and suddenly she begins to doubt everything she knew about the man she married.  

But Lucie harbours a terrible secret of her own. One that she has never shared with anyone, even Blake.... 

And as the search for Grace reaches fever pitch, Lucie receives a terrifying message. If she is ever to see Grace again, Lucie has no choice but to face the past she tried hard to bury forever. And she must do it alone. 

The most gripping psychological thriller you’ll listen to this year from the best-selling author K.L. Slater. If you love The Wife Between Us or Gone Girl, you’ll be totally hooked on Finding Grace.

Missing child ... suspense

An enjoyable story that shows how our past can haunt us and how we can misjudge people. Recommend... thanks Audible.

Easy listening page turner

The book was good. I couldn’t put it down. The twists are a little far fetched though. Few holes in the plot. I did enjoy the fact that it was a page turner.

A few twists

A quite good "thriller". A few holes in the plot and a few twists you didn't see coming. The narrator is good with female voices but her men are a bit creepy.

Good twist

This story kept me interested except for a while around the middle it got slightly tedious. Glad i hung in as the twisty ending was worth it.

I give up

OK, I am getting annoyed now, with the way this book was described, it sounded excellent. However, reading it I am getting really frustrated. Also this just adds to my long list of recent books that have characters in it that I think are weak, and just basically stupid. I wish that we had more authors write books about strong, independent, smart women. I’m not talking about making mistakes in our lives, I’m talking about how we learn and grow, and stand up for what we believe in, and as I teach my own daughter, paying the consequences for their own behavior. Anyway, let’s hope my next read is better. Are usually love this author, but this book is dreadful.

Can anyone actually be so GULLIBLE?

This was difficult for me to finish. The foolish Lucy is hard to swallow. She's difficult to relate to because she is so profoundly unbelievable., as are the rest of the one dimensional characters in the book. The narration was better than the story, but just barely. She sounded screechy and squeaky when delivering female lines, and flat and stuffy when speaking as a male. Save your time and money on this one, and pass it by.

Frustrating Read!

This book was awful. Every single conflict arose from either complete stupidity on the part of the main character or something completely unrealistic happening. I have been a victim of some of the same circumstances the main character was a victim to and I have two children the same age range and gender as hers, and I still could not relate to her at all. At every opportunity, she was the dumb girl in the horror movie that walks into the basement. One call to the police at any point in her story could have stopped everything.
I gave it two stars overall simply because the narrator was fine.

Finding Grace, tediously

The story was actually good. I felt it was tedious because at least the first half had not so much story with people doing things, but the majority of the time with Lucinda going on and on about how she felt, her suspicions, and her overall mental state. Once we got past that, and into more of the ‘16 years ago’ alternating chapters the story moved much faster, and had much more meat to keep your attention. The ending was almost too fast in contrast to the slower portions. But it was a very good job of tying up the loose ends.

I normally enjoy K.L. Slater.. but..

I normally enjoy most books by Slater but this one wasn't great. The premise is good, but the characters are not likable. I wanted to slap the mom who was missing her child, and the father wasn't much better. I felt it dragged and became uninteresting, which is a shame.

I would likely buy this on discount, but I wouldn't waste a credit on it.

Disappointing

I enjoyed the beginning of the book but as it progressed it was ridiculous. The main character makes one unbelievably bad decision after another until I wanted to scream. The story was improbable and Lucy was a weak and annoying character.

Disappointing.

Shallow, unlikeable characters, an implausible plot and a poor narrative.

There are many good books and good authors in this genre where the characters fill the pages and the story grips until the end, but this is not one of them.

Out of respect for the author and a commitment to myself to finishing every book I purchase, I hung in until the end although I found I eventually had to increase the narrative speed so as not to prolong the agony.

If it’s quality and fine writing you want try Peter Grainger’s delightful Inspector DC Smith series, or any of Adrian McGinty’s excellent novels. I don’t think you’ll find it here.

Boring Until The Last Hour

No Spoilers! Not enough suspense and I found the main character to be a bore. There were some twists at the end but I could see them coming early on. The main character was quite dim and I found her annoying. The only excellent part was the narrator.

If you like lots of drama with minimal suspense then you may enjoy this book.

K L Slater's usual weak female protagonist

I've listened to several K L Slater stories, usually bought on offer, hoping there will be one that includes a decent female heroine. No more, I give up.

The internal monologue of every single one is dire....no confidence, feeling unworthy, doubting her every action, guilty for ridiculous choices, etc etc

The feeling of chubby babies' bodies, having a husband/partner she doesn't deserve, unable to stand up to ridiculously scathing comments from others. I can't listen to any more of these novels with such weak female leads.

Don't usually leave reviews but I'm so frustrated with K L Slater's portrayal of women, I feel I have to.

Not the best K.L Slater book

I own a few books by K.L Slater. In general I enjoy her books, easy to follow and lots of twists. I'm not sure if reading so much of her stuff is why I found this really predictable and knew the twist very very early on. I like to keep a few notes on the books I read, and looking back on them I spotted the culprit as soon as they were introduced. The red herrings were obvious and overall it just bored me. There are hints to the main character having a few secrets and none of them really surprised me at all.
I do like the narrator, I do like the author.. this book just didn't do it for me. If you want my advice, try another one of K.L Slaters books.

Predictable!

I nearly stopped listening on a number of occasions but based on the reviews I'd read thought it could only get better... I was wrong!

I'm annoyed that I wasted 8 hours of my life on this book, it was ridiculously predictable and just another 'child disappears', 'parents have secrets', 'child reappears' storyline so unless you haven't read one of the many missing child thrillers before, don't waste your time on this one.

Flat storyline, long-drawn

Flat storyline, long-drawn, no real surprises. only finished it, because I wanted to give it a chance and for the principle. disappointing, particularly considering many of the other reviews. Great performance by the reader, though.

Mediocre. Wish I hadn't bothered

The main character is one of the worst judges of character, naive and idiotic. The story was unrealistic and a slog. But something must have kept me going to the end so 3 stars from me
