About The Book:
Someone is watching her. She just doesn’t know it yet. The unputdownable new book from the bestselling author of Her Name Was Rose. Everyone has a secret. But some are worse than you could ever imagine. Nell Sweeney has led an ordinary life. Every day she walks to and from the hospital where she works as a nurse, believing that no harm can befall her. Until one day she is taken. Because someone out there has a secret. Someone out there has been watching Nell – and they’ve been watching others like her too. Nell is the unlucky one – she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. And if she isn’t found soon, someone will make sure that she isn’t the last woman to be taken

My Review:
I enjoyed both Forget Me Not and Ask No Questions by Claire Allan and she continues to impress me with The Nurse. Claire Allan writes what I call intelligent thrillers and doesn't use formulas or banal plots. Yes, this is yet another missing child book BUT this time the child is a twenty-two year old adult and she has been missing for four days before her parents find out...I like that it was unique in that way.

Told from three points of view we get chapters from Him. Marion the mother and Nell herself. I love books that have that format. I find when it is done this way you get inside each characters head. I also loved being surprised halfway through the book. This was such a treat to read because of the fresh take on kidnapping stories and what we do for those we love the most. I have The Liar’s Daughter on my TBR pile and I will have to bump it up as Claire Allan never disappoints.

With many thanks to NetGalley, Claire Allan and Avon Books UK for the giving of the ARC.
