Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Narrated by a still-grieving mother who lost her daughter ten years earlier, is now in shock as a woman turns up with a girl she claims is her ‘reincarnated’ daughter. We only see the plot from the poor mother’s slightly unstable point of view which makes for a tense, fast read. The ‘reincarnation’ takes a minute or two to accept and then when a sinister turn occurs you get completely hooked.

Synopsis

The Second Life of Amy Archer by R. S. Pateman

On 31st December 1999, ten-year-old Amy Archer went missing from her local playground. Her body was never found and the lives of her parents, Beth and Brian, were torn apart. On the 10th anniversary of the disappearance, Beth is alone, still struggling with the enormity of her grief and the horror of not knowing the fate of her only child. But the fear and confusion have only just begun, and Beth's world is turned upside down when a stranger knocks on her door, claiming to know what happened to Amy. Beth is introduced to a little girl who is the uncanny double of her missing daughter, who knows things that only Amy would remember: the name of her favourite toy, the place where she scratched her initials, what Beth likes for breakfast. But this can't be Amy, she hasn't aged a day...Now Beth is forced to question everything she has ever believed in, and push her faith and her sanity to the limits, if she is to find out the truth about what happened to Amy.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
