Beneath The Surface by Heidi Perks
don’t know where you are…
I don’t know what I’ve done…
Teenager Abigail Ryder is devastated when she gets home from school to find her family gone. Nothing makes sense. Things are missing from the house and her stepsisters’ room is completely empty. But the police think she’s trouble, and when grandmother Eleanor tells her to forget them all and move on, there’s no choice other than face the future – alone.
Fourteen years on, Abi and Adam are a happy couple on the verge of parenthood. But when the past comes back to haunt Abi, the only way forward is to go back and uncover the truth – and reveal the dreadful secrets a mother has been hiding all these years.

Find Her by Lisa Gardner
I escaped the box.
The coffin that was both my prison and my lifeline.
My prison as I waited each day for release.
My lifeline as being locked inside meant being away from him.
I escaped the box, but I didn’t escape its consequences.
Now danger’s irrelevant.
All I care about is making them pay. The other predators out there. Those just like the man who took me.
And if someone tries to grab me again? I know how to protect myself.
And when another girl is taken?
Have no doubt: I will do anything, anything, to find her.
Escaped kidnap victim Flora Dane has once again disappeared. Has the self-proclaimed vigilante become a victim? Or is something far more sinister at play? D.D. will have to race against the clock if she is going to Find Her.
