I was provided with a review copy of The Second Life of Amy Archer from Lovereading and Orion Books.
This is a suspense-thriller that has been generating a lot of buzz as of late, and with such an exciting-sounding premise, it’s not difficult to see why:
Ten years ago, Beth Archer’s daughter Amy, mysteriously vanished from a local playground and in the preceeding decade, her world and her marriage, has been torn apart. On the anniversary of her disappearance, Beth is carrying out her usual lonely vigil and receives a knock on the door. She is shocked beyond disbelief at the little girl stood there: a girl who looks exactly like Amy, only she hasn’t aged a day since her disappearance. Not only that, but this girl has her daughter’s memories, things that only Amy would know. How is this possible…?
Honestly? Whilst I didn’t fall completely in love with the book, I can’t say I hated it either. It was an intriguing enough read to keep me turning the pages to see which direction the book would ultimately take. Overall a 3 out of 5 star rating from me.
You can read my review (and others) of this novel here.
Thanks to Lovereading and Orion for the review opportunity.
