Today I am reviewing The Girl in the Missing Poster by Barbara Copperthwaite. This was released on the 23rd of February, published by Bookouture.


Book Blurb

24 June, 1994 – Nineteen-year-old Leila Hawkins runs from her father’s birthday party into the stormy night wearing her sister Stella’s long red coat. Some say she was crying, others swear they saw her get into a passing car. Nobody ever saw her again.

Present – This time every year, on the anniversary of that fateful night, Stella decorates the small seaside town she grew up in with pictures of her beautiful missing sister. But after twenty-five years, is it even worth hoping someone will come forward? Perhaps the upcoming documentary will spark people’s memories by reuniting all the guests who were there the night Leila went missing.

As old friends gather and long-buried secrets begin to surface, the last thing Stella ever expects is a direct response from someone claiming they took Leila. They want private details of Stella’s life in return for answers. But as the true events of the night of the party play out once again, who is lying? And who is next?

From the bestselling author of The Perfect Friend, this absolutely gripping psychological thriller will keep you up all night and leave you sleeping with the light on. If you loved Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and The Wife Between Us this book is for you!

I didn’t think I could love Barbara Copperthwaite‘s books any more but, then she gives us The Girl in the Missing Poster, which when I was done, shot up to my favourite book of hers to date!

This book is absolutely fantastic! The premise sucked me in, it’s is execution perfectly done and it all just plays out and comes together so seamlessly that the pages just turned themselves. M

Barbara Copperthwaite is in fine form with this book and has delivered a highly addictive, first class and thrilling read that I can’t recommend highly enough.

This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play and Barnes & Noble if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK, but will post to Waterstones & Foyles if also available.
