I’ve got a ton of Amy Cross books on my Kindle. It amazes me how quickly she pumps out so many great looking books with unique and innovative synopses. It’s about bloody time I read one.
So, I decided to start with The Disappearance of Katie Wren. The idea of a frantic mother searching the streets of London for her missing daughter was an intriguing one. I love a dark, mysterious book with sinister overtones. A perfect place to start.
Amy Cross crafted a captivating story. The Disappearance of Katie Wren is a fast-paced tour of the underbelly of London. I was pulled into the search for Katie, I think that I wanted to find her as much as her mum did.
Katie’s mum, Winifred Wren, carries the story. Winifred was the perfect character, a widow from small town England. I could picture my own mother in the role. She was a naïve, bumbling woman overwhelmed but somehow not intimidated by the big city. She offered just the right amount of comic relief to the story.
Although the story could use a thorough proofing, it was a fun read and I will not hesitate to read more books by Amy Cross.
