    Unfortunately, this book didn't work for me. My main problem is that I felt no emotion. I didn't feel sorry for the main character, nor did I feel anything for Lucy. Lucy was kidnapped when she was 2 years old by someone that thought she could do a better job raising her than her biolo...

    Allison and her mother lived a quiet life, isolated, very few friends. Her mother did not encourage her to mix with young people, so when she died Allison was quite alone. But Allison longs for a child and carefully prepares a diabolic plan to snatch a child. She does this so succes...

    So disturbing, I could hardly put it down. The protagonist is completely insane, convincing herself otherwise; psychotic and lost in a never ending tangle of lies. This is a story told through the eyes of a child abductor. My heart ached for the little girl, for her family and in a str...

    Alison has lived with her adoptive mother for most of her life, except for a brief time away at university, which ended in disaster. In fact her life has been full of ups and downs and she is not the most gregarious person. When her mother passes away she feels lonelier than ever. She ...

    1985 Alison Brown, age 40, desperately wants a child. Having just lost her beloved adoptive mother, Alison is so lonely for her. Alison has considered other means of having her own child, but none are acceptable to her. She moves to a home in Newcastle, furnishing it for herself...

    Finding Lucy is a 3.5 stars as although the storyline is good there were no twists or suspense. This is a crime thriller written differently then others I have read as this deals with child abduction but from the perpetrators side. Although this was a good idea there were no moments t...

    I received this book "Finding Lucy" from NetGalley and all opinions expressed are my own. I did like the story concept but a lot of the story was not believable. Everything just came out great in the end with everyone happy and no one upset - really upset - that a young child was taken...

    I found this an easy read with a storyline I have not seen in this type of book before - the story of a child abduction told from the viewpoint of the abductor. A story of secrets and lies, and also of forgiveness. I enjoyed this book and was surprised to find I felt sympathy towards t...

    I find this book special and great . The story was about Stacey who was taken away Alison Brown changed her name to Lucy . When Lucy was about 25 she finds the answers, Alison has cancer . I read these books a lot because they are special for me . I would like to thank Netgalley f...

    So disturbing, I could hardly put it down. The protagonist is completely insane, convincing herself otherwise; psychotic and lost in a never ending tangle of lies. This is a story told through the eyes of a child abductor. My heart ached for the little girl, for her family and in a str...

    interesting story. ...

    This was interesting but I thought it had a fairly facile ending. The issue of child abduction was treated fairly cavalierly as well. ...

    Alison Brown was somewhat of a loner and when her mother died she was at a loss and lonely. When visiting her mother's grave she came across the grave of a baby girl named Lucy Brown aged two. Alison came up with an elaborate plan of abducting a little girl, renaming her and moving to ...

    I find this book special and great . The story was about Stacey who was taken away Alison Brown changed her name to Lucy . When Lucy was about 25 she finds the answers, Alison has cancer . I read these books a lot because they are special for me . I would like to thank Netgalley f...

    So disturbing, I could hardly put it down. The protagonist is completely insane, convincing herself otherwise; psychotic and lost in a never ending tangle of lies. This is a story told through the eyes of a child abductor. My heart ached for the little girl, for her family and in a str...

    Just like real life This novel is just like what you might here about on the news. I really liked the book except for the bad language at times. That part I could have done without. ...

    Finding Lucy was an addictive read when Alison discover a little girl she decides to abduct her and call her Lucy I could not put my kindle down for wanting to find out what happens next! ...

    interesting story. ...

    This was interesting but I thought it had a fairly facile ending. The issue of child abduction was treated fairly cavalierly as well. ...

    I really enjoyed this one! The plot was consistent and moved along at a great pace and the characters were well developed. ...

    Alison Brown was somewhat of a loner and when her mother died she was at a loss and lonely. When visiting her mother's grave she came across the grave of a baby girl named Lucy Brown aged two. Alison came up with an elaborate plan of abducting a little girl, renaming her and moving to ...

    Unfortunately, this book didn't work for me. My main problem is that I felt no emotion. I didn't feel sorry for the main character, nor did I feel anything for Lucy. Lucy was kidnapped when she was 2 years old by someone that thought she could do a better job raising her than her biolo...

    It's rare we come across a completely original story in the crime genre and i'm afraid this is another which makes use of the missing/abducted child trope. However, this book views it from a wholly different angle to many others, namely by looking at it from the perpetrators perspectiv...

    Allison and her mother lived a quiet life, isolated, very few friends. Her mother did not encourage her to mix with young people, so when she died Allison was quite alone. But Allison longs for a child and carefully prepares a diabolic plan to snatch a child. She does this so succes...

    Alison has lived with her adoptive mother for most of her life, except for a brief time away at university, which ended in disaster. In fact her life has been full of ups and downs and she is not the most gregarious person. When her mother passes away she feels lonelier than ever. She ...

    1985 Alison Brown, age 40, desperately wants a child. Having just lost her beloved adoptive mother, Alison is so lonely for her. Alison has considered other means of having her own child, but none are acceptable to her. She moves to a home in Newcastle, furnishing it for herself...

    An interesting angle that started with a fairly frightening concept, that of a woman very purposefully setting out to steal a child, targeting that child, and then going ahead with a startling plan. It held my attention because it was unusual, in that something we would all see as quit...

    Finding Lucy is a 3.5 stars as although the storyline is good there were no twists or suspense. This is a crime thriller written differently then others I have read as this deals with child abduction but from the perpetrators side. Although this was a good idea there were no moments t...

    Finding Lucy is a 3.5 stars as although the storyline is good there were no twists or suspense. This is a crime thriller written differently then others I have read as this deals with child abduction but from the perpetrators side. Although this was a good idea there were no moments t...

    Enjoyed the quite unique premise of this book .. a child abduction told mostly from the perspective of the abductor, with a few narratives from Lucy interwoven throughout. Unfortunately I didn't feel that the idea quite worked in reality as I couldn't take to Alison's character and fou...

    I received this book "Finding Lucy" from NetGalley and all opinions expressed are my own. I did like the story concept but a lot of the story was not believable. Everything just came out great in the end with everyone happy and no one upset - really upset - that a young child was taken...

    I found this an easy read with a storyline I have not seen in this type of book before - the story of a child abduction told from the viewpoint of the abductor. A story of secrets and lies, and also of forgiveness. I enjoyed this book and was surprised to find I felt sympathy towards t...

    A really interesting read. A missing child story but definitely different to the many out there. A story told from the perpetrators side. I really enjoyed the well written characters with all their flaws. Touching on mental health and how this affects people through life. A good saga w...

    I find this book special and great . The story was about Stacey who was taken away Alison Brown changed her name to Lucy . When Lucy was about 25 she finds the answers, Alison has cancer . I read these books a lot because they are special for me . I would like to thank Netgalley f...

    So disturbing, I could hardly put it down. The protagonist is completely insane, convincing herself otherwise; psychotic and lost in a never ending tangle of lies. This is a story told through the eyes of a child abductor. My heart ached for the little girl, for her family and in a str...

    Just like real life This novel is just like what you might here about on the news. I really liked the book except for the bad language at times. That part I could have done without. ...

    Finding Lucy was an addictive read when Alison discover a little girl she decides to abduct her and call her Lucy I could not put my kindle down for wanting to find out what happens next! ...

    interesting story. ...

    This was interesting but I thought it had a fairly facile ending. The issue of child abduction was treated fairly cavalierly as well. ...

    Alison Brown was somewhat of a loner and when her mother died she was at a loss and lonely. When visiting her mother's grave she came across the grave of a baby girl named Lucy Brown aged two. Alison came up with an elaborate plan of abducting a little girl, renaming her and moving to ...

    Unfortunately, this book didn't work for me. My main problem is that I felt no emotion. I didn't feel sorry for the main character, nor did I feel anything for Lucy. Lucy was kidnapped when she was 2 years old by someone that thought she could do a better job raising her than her biolo...

    It's rare we come across a completely original story in the crime genre and i'm afraid this is another which makes use of the missing/abducted child trope. However, this book views it from a wholly different angle to many others, namely by looking at it from the perpetrators perspectiv...

    Allison and her mother lived a quiet life, isolated, very few friends. Her mother did not encourage her to mix with young people, so when she died Allison was quite alone. But Allison longs for a child and carefully prepares a diabolic plan to snatch a child. She does this so succes...

    Dove into this book without reading anything about it. Found it to be an Original take on a familiar theme. It was interesting, some what intense, with a very quiet, haunting darkness. Listened with TTS Mildly not Clean. Foul Language. ...

    Alison has lived with her adoptive mother for most of her life, except for a brief time away at university, which ended in disaster. In fact her life has been full of ups and downs and she is not the most gregarious person. When her mother passes away she feels lonelier than ever. She ...
