Little Girl Gone by Alexandra Burt


A baby goes missing. But does her mother want her back?

Estelle knows she holds the key to what happened that night – but what she doesn’t know is whether she was responsible…

When Estelle’s baby daughter is taken from her cot, she doesn’t report her missing. Days later, Estelle is found in a wrecked car, with a wound to her head and no memory.


Over the last couple of years, I have read many thrillers, and I am so glad I did, otherwise gems like this book would have passed me by. I chose this book by pure chance, as I wasn’t sure what type of book I fancied picking up from my (figurative) pile of books to be read, but once I did, I couldn’t put my kindle down, I was captured from beginning to end.

The book is utterly gripping, I was constantly coming up with new theories as to what might have happened, more so than other books of this genre, and other than a correct medical diagnosis, every single thought I came up with was disproven, sometimes only paragraphs later, this book certainly kept me on my toes. 

The book takes place in both present day and flashbacks to the past, telling us how Estelle and Jack met, and then everything that led up to Mia’s disappearance and Estelle’s car crash. There was one time for me that it wasn’t really obvious that it was the past but it was only that once, the rest of the book it was completely obvious which time period we were in. 

Despite Estelle’s mistakes and the suspicion put upon her I couldn’t help  but like her. She was incredibly bright and I really felt for the trouble she was going through. Jack, her husband was supportive at first, but towards the end was more and more absent, which didn’t help her one bit. I am very surprised he didn’t realise something more than the initial diagnosis was the issue, but from an outsider looking in it’s probably easier to see that. I do feel that he really cared about her though.

This book was just brilliant, that got more and more intriguing ass it went on, with a finale that was wonderfully twisted. You won’t want to put it down, eager to find out what happened to Mia.
