    The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: A beloved teenage daughter goes missing in Losing You, a stranger (of sorts) in The Girl on the Train. Despite this difference, these compelling psychological suspense novels, each set in England, offer a gripping, twisty story.

Très difficile de refermer le livre une fois ouvert ( )

This is another standalone by Nicci French.(Yes, it was another present)

Just before she's supposed to go on holiday, a young girl doesn't return home. As time passes the mother gets more and more worried, though everyone else doesn't seem to think anything bad happened.

Once again I missed a connection with the characters. I liked the story, though it wasn't very original, and the end did not come as a surprise.

It was a quick read though, and it's nice to read as well, but after a few of Nicci French's books, I find them repetitive and that's why I wouldn't choose them myself. ( )

Losing You by Nicci French (2008) ( )
  michelestjohn | Mar 26, 2010 |
I enjoyed this book very much; in fact, I spent several hours reading it yesterday, wanting to know how it turned out. Nina is a single mother living on an island off the coast of England. Just before Christmas on her birthday she plans to vacation in Florida with her two children and her boyfriend. Suddenly she realizes her 15 year old daughter, Charlie, is missing, just at the time they should be packing and preparing to go to the airport. No one else, including the police, seems to take this seriously, so Nina singlehandedly and full of purpose begins to retrace her daughter's steps to try to locate her. There is a lot of suspense and intrigue in the plot, making for a very good and fast read. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312375387, Hardcover)

It’s Nina Landry’s birthday, and she’s supposed to have her kids ready to leave in a few hours for a Christmas holiday in Florida with her new boyfriend, but her fifteen-year-old daughter Charlie spent the night at a friend’s and hasn’t come home yet. Not by ten a.m., not by eleven. Nina is getting angry---they have a plane to catch, and Charlie hasn’t even bothered to pack. As time passes, though slower and slower by the minute, Nina becomes uneasy. Her anger gives way to worry, and that worry quickly builds into panic.

By one p.m., she’s wondering, has Charlie run away, or has something far worse happened? And why won’t anyone---not the cops, not Charlie’s friends, not Charlie’s father---take her disappearance seriously?

As day turns to night on their home of Sandling Island sixty miles from London, and a series of ominous secrets leads Nina from sickening suspicion to deadly certainty, the question becomes less whether she and her daughter will leave the island in time and more whether they’ll ever leave it again.

In Losing You, the newest thriller from the long-acclaimed master of psychological suspense, Nicci French unravels one mother’s life and replaces it with every mother’s worst nightmare.
