    1. 30 years ago little Mandy Miller, three years old, disappeared without a trace from the village Hallow's End. Her family and the village never really got over the disappearing. Elaine Ellis arrives at the village to scatter her mother ashes. Elaine's mother grew up in Hallow's End, but Elaine has never been there and little does she know how her arrival will affect the town.I can honestly say that I had the story figured out around 27% and my theories came through. But, I still enjoyed the story [...]


    2. This was a really cleverly written book. How things that were never settled can resurface and come back to haunt you.A child goes missing, no one knows where, body never found, just a jumper. A jumper stained with blood. The place it was found belonged to a man with some sort of learning disability, did he do it?Its a small village and tittle tattle is riff. Even if its 30 yrs past.There are some red herrings along the way which I did miss. Highly recommended.Thank you to Carina UK via Net Galle [...]


    3. Elaine has come to Hallow's End, with the intention of spreading her mother's ashes in a garden of the community she grew up in. She soon finds herself embroiled with a seventeen year old and a old mystery. What did happen to Mandy when she disappeared at the age of three, and who is responsible for her disappearance. The answers will change Elaine's life in many ways.A good mystery, with interesting characters. I loved the character of Brody, she was the most fully developed and I liked her sar [...]


    4. Fourth book of my holiday reads. Really enjoyed this book, full of mystery and suspense.I have to admit I did work something out about the main character Elaine quite early on but there were still plenty of twists and turns that weren't expected. Brodie I loved. A typical hormonal teenager but for me she is the stand out character in this book and shows an incredible strength for one so young. She certainly makes her mark in everyone's lives that she comes across. Great read and highly recommend [...]


    5. Primarily a novel of suspense and mystery. There is a gentler romantic element and a touch of paranormal. This is a story of dysfunctional families and how the actions from the past have impacted on the present day. I liked the characters, even the secondary ones in this story. Like another reviewer I did have an inkling early on in the novel how the story would turn out but it didn't lessen the level of enjoyment. My only gripe was the paranormal element, I couldn't really see the point of it w [...]


    6. (review copy)Posted in full reviewedthebook/2015 The Lost Child is an exciting and fascinating novel which is difficult to be defined by genre, but it does present the reader with a mystery that will have you rapidly turning the pages to discover more. I’m becoming more and more of a cover fiend as late and The Lost Child’s cover is stunning but I also learnt that from the first time I read that blurb, it hadn’t let me go and I just had to read this book at some point in the near future. I [...]


    7. I started lost child early Sunday morning at 5.30 and by 9am I was very happy for two reasons firstly I could not get into any book since reading two brilliant books back to back so was in a bit of a reading slump that lasted a few days and the Lost child brought me out of this slump and made me see the sunlight again with other books.The second reason was that I was happy I was on this books blog tour as everyone who loves a mystery needs to read this book and shout about it afterwards.The best [...]


    8. The Lost Child by Ann Troup is a book that I liked but didn't love and I really can't my finger on why. It starts off so good, building mood and tension and then came the big revealless that half way through and from there, the book just lost steam for me.Mandy Miller disappeared from Hallow's End when she was only 3 years old and all that was left behind was a bloody sweater. Thirty years have passed and Elaine Ellis is coming to Hallow's End to scatter the ashes of her mother who left Hallow's [...]


    9. A three year old child, Mandy Miller, disappears from Hallow's End never to to be found. Years later Elaine Ellis returns bringing her mother's ashes to scatter in Hallow's End. She finds herself involved in the mysteries and secrets that this town holds. I was concerned when one of the biggest secrets is revealed very early, but was pleasantly surprised that there were plenty more secrets and surprises to come. This book definitely has more than it's share of family secrets. I loved the charact [...]


    10. Thank you to NetGalley for sending me this book in return for my honest review.The idea on which this book is based is by no means a new one: a child disappears, is presumed dead, but then unexpectedly returns many years later. However, Ann Troup presents a thoroughly refreshing view on the original concept.Troup’s writing flows in such a way that it is a delightfully easy-to-read story. Her writing has a comfort and ease to it that I found thoroughly enjoyable, making me finish the book much [...]

    14. Originally posted on Paris Baker's Book Nook.First things first, I love a good cover, and wow, what a cover!! Those colours are so striking, it’s fabulously eye-catching. Well done, Carina!When Elaine Ellis travels to Hallow’s End to scatter her mother’s ashes in the place she grew up, it’s quickly apparent this village holds dark secrets. The disappearance of 3-year-old Mandy Miller may have happened thirty years ago, but it still haunts over the village and its residents. 15-year-old B [...]


    15. It feels a bit odd, I worked out what the main mystery was within the first 10% of the book, or at least I had a very strong feeling. I then had to stop as my lunch break was over, and when I came back to the book that evening, despite reading on purely to see that my hunch was correct, and then seeing what other twists and turns the story may take, I did read the rest of the book in one sitting in a little over 3 hours. The fact that I did that while not being sure how much I was enjoying, or e [...]


    16. Rating: 2.5 Rounded up to 3 Elaine Ellis is back in her mother's home town to scatter her mother's ashes. While there, she befriends Brodie, a teenage tearaway living with her Great Aunt. Brodie comes from a family destroyed by the loss of her sister Mandy when she was three - Mandy disappeared without a trace and Brodie's mother never got over it. Somebody in the town knows what happened to Mandy - but why is Elaine being dragged into it? Is her family more involved than she'd like? This was ok [...]


    17. I received this kindle book from Net Galley in return for an honest review.Mandy Miller disappeared from Hallow’s End when she was just 3 years old. She was never found.The story starts with the main protagonist, Elaine Ellis, on her way to Hallow's End to scatter the ashes of her recently deceased mother.

Arriving in Hallow’s End the mystery and the secrets start. The disappearance of 3 year old Mandy many years ago hangs like a dark shadow over the village.Elaine meets teenage girl Brodie and seems to be the only one cracking this girl’s shell. Brodie is Mandy’s sister and her whole family is just a mess, a lot to go through in her young age.Back home h [...]


    19. This started really well for me. I like the premise, I liked the main character, I was intrigued enough to not be too bothered by the slightly passive narrative and to keep turning pages. And then about half way through the mystery was solved (or at least a chunk of it) - and the pace simply slowed, and that's when the narrative style started to get to me. Don't get me wrong, this was a really good story and there was still lots to unveil in the second part of the book, but without the suspense [...]


    20. An intriguing read surrounding the disappearance of a young girl, Mandy Miller, who vanished from Hallow's End when she was 3 years old, leaving her mother devastated and the village embroiled in mystery. 30 years later, Elaine Ellis takes her mum's ashes to the village intending to scatter them in a place her mum had remembered fondly, but instead, she finds herself caught up in Mandy Miller's story and begins to uncover shocking details.'The Lost Child' is a well written book with plenty of dr [...]


    21. Πολυ καλο βιβλιο , page turner , δε θα βαλω πανω απο 3 αστερια γιατι ειναι κατα καποιον τροπο προβλεπομενη η υποθεση . Η Elaine μετα το θανατο της μητερας της πηγαινει στον τοπο καταγωγης της τελευταιας , οπου μαθαινει για την Mandy , ενα μικρο κοριτσι που εξαφανιστηκε πριν 30 χρονια και πα [...]



    22. This pacey, character driven story concerns the mystery of a lost child almost thirty years ago, and it was a remarkably good read. It begins with Elaine Ellis selecting the most agreeable final resting place for her recently deceased mother. This, you would think, would be a respectable, somewhat sombre affair. But Elaine, and the vessel containing the late Jean Ellis, experience misfortunes faltering between comedic and tragic. Soon after the fairly unceremonial scattering, her mother’s loss [...]


    23. A lost child. The secrets hidden deep - or not so deep?Elaine comes to the Hallow’s End to scatter her mother´s ashes there. But the seemingly peaceful village has its share of secrets - 30 years ago a child went missing, never found. While Elizabeth enters an unexpected friendship with teenager Brodie, the sister of the mising child, builder Dan, her former flame, rebuilds her house - and finds that Elaine might not be who she claims to be. Ah well. The first 60 % of the book were all I want [...]


    24. Wow! So many twists & turns! The unexpected kept popping up every other page! Great story, great mystery. I have to see what else this author has written. So many surprises in this story, a page turner. This will keep you up, reading until the end.


    25. Boring, silly and just not my sort of book. Finished it as quickly as possible because I hate leaving a book not finished and I have a pile of far more interesting books waiting to be read.


    26. Originally reviewed on beccasbooooks/2Well, well, well.I finished The Lost Child by Ann Troup late last night, while tossing and turning in bed and fighting against sleep because I just couldn't bring myself to end the day without reaching the end of this novel first. I am so impressed, mightily impressed, so impressed in fact that I really, really, really cannot wait for Ann Troup's second novel. I finished The Lost Child in just over 24 hours, and I can't remember the last time that I read a b [...]


    27. Gripping could not put it downLoved the book thought I knew the ending but I was wrong looking forward to reading another book by this author


    28. I had no idea what to expect when I started reading this book. I was completely intrigued by the synopsis and I love a good mystery so I was ready to dive in. I was not expecting to get completely sucked into the story and ended up not being able to put my Kindle down. I loved Elaine in the beginning of the book she came off as a person who just lost her mother and was trying to keep herself together. She went to the one place that her mother mentioned she grew up in, not knowing that much about [...]


    29. The mystery surrounding Mandy Miller, 'The Lost Child' is encircled around you as a reader from the opening paragraphs of this book. Set in a small Devon village it is very easy to get your bearings and visualise the countryside settings including all of the people. It is easy to see how such a shocking event as the disappearance of child would turn such a village into a time capsule and the sense of the trauma affecting almost everyone who lives in the village is evident.Our main protagonist El [...]
