Gone Astray by Michelle Davies. Recommended by Sarah (Assistant Librarian).
When Lesley and her husband, Mack, suddenly win a £15 million EuroMillions jackpot, they move with their 15-year-old daughter, Rosie, to an exclusive gated estate in Buckinghamshire, leaving behind their ordinary lives – and friends – as they are catapulted into wealth beyond their wildest dreams. But it soon turns into their darkest nightmare when, one beautiful spring afternoon, Lesley returns to their house to find it empty: Rosie is gone. DC Maggie Neville is assigned to be Family Liaison Officer to Lesley and Mack, supporting them while quietly trying to investigate the family. But she has a crisis threatening her own life – a secret from the past that could shatter everything she’s worked so hard to build. As Lesley and Maggie desperately try to find Rosie, their fates hurtle together on a collision course that threatens to end in tragedy.
“We all dream of winning the lottery and the pleasure it might bring, but never imagine the darker events that this captivating crime debut unveils. What if…? The fast pace and intrigue of the plot are highly addictive and make this book enormously enjoyable. If you have a holiday planned then I’d recommend taking this book along.” Sarah.
