October 2016 Debut of the Month.
A girl is picked up for shoplifting and not wanting to give her real name, we know not why, she picks the name of a girl who disappeared ten years ago. When it all happened and Rebecca Winter’s photo was all over the place, our narrator and her boyfriend remarked how similar they were. So now our narrator dons the mantel of the lost girl and suddenly has a home, parents and two younger brothers, twins. She has a best friend and a hunk of a boy who has always had a crush on the ‘lost’ girl. She also claims to have amnesia so now as Bec she has it made, only the police have lots of questions. We follow Bec in 2014 and in alternate chapters we follow the real Bec in 2003 over the last few days of her life at home. Both time-frames build up the tension, the earlier as we hope to find out what actually happened and the latter as we wonder if Bec, the imposter, will actually get away with her lie. It’s fascinating. Many a time I thought ‘I wouldn’t have done it like that’ but as we follow both Becs’ plights we become anxious for their success. When the twist comes at the end it really hits you in the stomach. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
Only Daughter by Anna Snoekstra
In this chilling psychological thriller, one woman's dark past becomes another's deadly future. In 2003, sixteen-year-old Rebecca Winter disappeared. She'd been enjoying her teenage summer break: working at a fast food restaurant, crushing on an older boy and shoplifting with her best friend. Mysteriously ominous things began to happen-blood in the bed, periods of blackouts, a feeling of being watched-though Bec remained oblivious of what was to come. Eleven years later she is replaced. A young woman, desperate after being arrested, claims to be the decade-missing Bec. Soon the imposter is living Bec's life. Sleeping in her bed. Hugging her mother and father. Learning her best friends' names. Playing with her twin brothers. But Bec's welcoming family and enthusiastic friends are not quite as they seem. As the imposter dodges the detective investigating her case, she begins to delve into the life of the real Bec Winter-and soon realizes that whoever took Bec is still at large, and that she is in imminent danger.
