Lost Child by DS Butler (Book Review #181)

I rate this book 2 out of 5 stars.

(Finished Reading: 14/06/18

My 37th book this year)

Beth is looking after her niece, Jenna, at the fete. She looks away just for a short moment and Jenna is gone. Nowhere to be seen. 2 years later life has been turned upside down for everyone. Beth is still feeling guilty for Jenna’s disappearance.

One day someone anonymous sends a recent photo of Jenna to Beth. Beth is back to her home town immediately in hope to find Jenna because Beth is sure she is still alive, waiting to be found.


I’m lost for words. I rarely give such low ratings but this book had too many down points for me to ignore. I absolutely hated Beth. We are continuously told how Beth’s mind is unstable, how she keeps losing it, how she cannot control herself. But none of this came across through the emotions. None of the characters made much sense. Their only purposes were to add to the list of potential abductors.

Even as the events unfolded I just wanted the book to end so I could pick up the next book on my list. Apologies to the author but this book is on a complete different level to many others that have been published in this genre. I would definitely say it’s not worth the read. I would also say a definite no in reading other books by this author.
