It had me gripped from the start, it really was unput down able, in fact I was so impressed with it I ordered the other books by Emily Gunnis.
But if I had to choose just one it would be The Girl in the Letter.
Looking forward to more from this author.
Such an amazing novel full of power,money,and the truth behind the lies with all that are involved with the disappearance of lovely Alice.
And the story that unfolds of that awful night and the present and the future.
And the awful things that lovely little Nell has to go through for someone so young .
Like me you will be riveted by this book and you won't be able to put it down till you in the truth
