July 2022 Book Recommendation – The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell

It was supposed to be a simple date between young parents Tallulah & Zach, but they never came back. Their baby was left in the care of Tallulah’s mother, Kim. This happened in 2017. In 2019, a new resident arrived and saw “Dig Here” sign that reopens Tallulah’s case. The investigation starts again and this time, it looks like it is finally going somewhere. Where is Tallulah? And who placed the “dig here” sign?

2017: 19 year old Tallulah is going out on a date, leaving her baby with her mother, Kim.

Kim watches her daughter leave and, as late evening turns into night, which turns into early morning, she waits for her return. And waits.

The next morning, Kim phones Tallulah’s friends who tell her that Tallulah was last seen heading to a party at a house in the nearby woods called Dark Place.

She never returns.

2019: Sophie is walking in the woods near the boarding school where her boyfriend has just started work as a head-teacher when she sees a note fixed to a tree.

‘DIG HERE’ . . .

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
