While my eyes were closed by Lisa Green Book Review

"Lisa Dale shuts her eyes and counts to one hundred during a game of hide-and-seek. When she opens them, her four-year-old daughter Ella is gone. Disappeared without a trace. The police, the media and Lisa's family all think they know who snatched Ella. But what if the person who took her isn't a stranger? What if they are convinced they are doing the right thing? And what if Lisa's little girl is in danger of disappearing forever?"

This book was recommended to me by my good friend Laura aka Laura In Bookish Land. I love a good Thriller story and this one was no exception. I started this book when I was on the bus the other day. I love reading on the bus, it makes the journey go soooo much quicker. 

Lisa takes her youngest daughter Ella to the park. Ella loves to play hide and seek, while Lisa is counting to one hundred Ella disappears without a trace. Lisa looks for Ella without any luck finding her four year old daughter. Where could she have gone? Did she wander off alone? Did someone take her? Is she lost and injured somewhere? Or is she just hiding in a really good hiding spot? Lisa calls the police who come to the conclusion that Ella has been taken by someone. Is the person that took Ella someone Ella knows? What's if it's a complete stranger and what do they want with Ella? 
This book had me hooked from the word go. I found it very hard to put down. Linda Green has done wonderfully with this story and it is really well written. It was actually quite frustrating in places because I seriously wanted to scream at Lisa! And at the person who has Ella! There's a couple of twists and turns which had me gripped. I rated this book 4.5 stars (out of 5) and would totally recommend it to anyone who loves a good thriller or crime book!

  1. I'm not sure if this would appeal to me with a four year old character disappearing. I hope it has a happy ending!
