    This is the story of two friends who are each running from their past Kate wants to keep a low profile she is terrified that her past is going to catch up with her but we don’t know what that past it Annie’s problems go a lot further back to her childhood and she has never allowed herself to get close to men or have a long term meaningful relationship They are both starting new jobs new starts with new bosses who are going to have a big impact on themWhen I first started reading this book I was aware that there was uite a buzz about it and I must admit that for the first half of the read I was wondering why It was certainly enjoyable an easy to read book with big hints of romance but I couldn’t see why everyone was getting so excited about it Then I got to the “reveal” and I realised exactly why It is a book that is well worth sticking with because when you get to that point and everything all makes sense is when you really start to enjoy the read I loved the second part of the story which suddenly turned much darker and intricate although was still easy to read and very much a page turnerI liked both parts of the story eually and there is a cast of characters who are really fun to read about My only real gripe about the story is the character of Ana Louisa a six year old with a vocabulary way beyond her years She is meant to be precocious and cute but to me she just came across as an obnoxious little brat I really did pause a little when I got to the section where her parents were allowing her to use her toy kitchen to role play Gordon Ramsay and Hells Kitchen complete with the “F” word whilst they were in the room It just made me feel a little uneasy as I cannot imagine any parent condoning that That aside though this is a really good read Many thanks to the publisher for the review copy

    I'd heard great things about this novel from several trusted sources so it accidentally dropped into my basket during a recent book shopping trip and boy was I in for a treatThis is simply superb totally captivating storytelling genius with unforgettable characters that I loved with all my heart Two brilliantly drawn and utterly gripping strong female leads with a supporting cast that makes for a rollicking good read often darkly humerous and completely addictive from first page to lastKate has run away from her life and is living incognito on a farm Annie is facing huge potentially life changing differences in hers told in alternating chapters between the two we start to learn about their current lives their past lives their friendships and the reasons behind their actions It is perfectly paced perfectly constructed and is one of those novels that you just know you will remember for the rest of your life and probably read several timesThe mystery element is intriguing you know there are secrets hovering just below the surface but you tend to forget about those as you get totally caught up in the lives of these two women one of whom has a dark past and you watch them head into an uncertain future There is a beautifully done romantic aspect and I usually don't do romance but this was authentic and rather lovely but added to that is a story of deep friendships and lasting ties which is emotionally stunning The vibrant characters live and breathe in your imagination as you read there really is no downsideAnd gosh if that was not enough the author floored me with a beautiful little twisty turn that I absolutely did not see coming Yes mea culpa this time I was caught out but it is so brilliantly perfect that I'm not even cross with myself I had to put the book down for a moment while my brain caught up to the authors genius then I rocketed through the rest in record time couldn't wait to see how it all panned out for Kate and AnniePlus horses The book has horses Really is there anything else to say?Sheer brilliance Highly HIGHLY recommended Happy Reading Folks

    Having never read a Lucy Robinson book before shocking I know I was very excited to receive a review copy of The Day We Disappeared Some of my favourite bloggers are huge Lucy Robinson fans so I went into this book with very high expectations I also went into the book expecting it to be the norm for this genre and thought I had an idea of where the book would go How wrong I was The Day We Disappeared was such a different read from what I was expecting It's a story that will remain in my memory for a long time Lucy Robinson is a born storyteller and she has written a book that is just impossible to reviewI became totally invested in the lives of both of our main characters really uickly and so felt for them throughout the book as if I knew them This is because of Lucy Robinson's ability to create realistic and believable characters that feel like people you could know in real life The villains of the piece are also believable scarily so at times It's clear that for those parts of the story Lucy has carried out meticulous research using it to tell a gripping and authentic story that will have you thinking about the book long after you've finished it Lucy is a wonderful writer and The Day We Disappeared is full of humorous moments and characters that help to lighten the mood in what was at times a darker read than the cover and blurb suggests It's not just Annie and Kate who are standout characters but their friends as well all of whom have their role to play in the telling of this storyIt isn't often that a book leaves me speechless or makes my jaw literally drop but The Day We Disappeared managed both of those things and I was so glad I could talk to fellow bloggers and Lucy herself about this book because I needed to talk to somebody else that had read it about how amazing it was after I'd finished it Thinking back to my reaction at certain events in this book is almost comical I imagine my face was a picture I can only apologise for the briefness and lack of detail in this review but with a book like this it's almost impossible to discuss in any detail without giving things away it's very much about discovering the book for yourselves which I hope you will I think this is going to be one of 2015's best books and fans of Lucy Robinson or those like me who are new to her work are going to absolutely love it I can imagine some might find the start a little slow going but seriously it soon gets really goodThe Day We Disappeared is a book you will want to recommend to strangers in the street and scream at anybody looking at it in a supermarket or bookshop to buy it You will finish reading it and immediately want to tell the world about it It is a truly inspirational heartwarming and at times heartbreaking read with such a satisfying ending Lucy has written an incredible novel that I can't recommend enough and I now need to read her other books ASAP Don't let this one sit on your TBR too long though it won't be long before someone spoils it The cover and the blurb do perhaps give off that Women's Fiction vibe yet the big discussion amongst bloggers and authors recently on Twitter has been #ReviewWomen2015 and this is a book that can and should be used to strengthen that argument it's so much than a book for women I'm not a woman and really this book has to be a bestseller

    Where to start? Where on earth to start? It's not often that I am left speechless but oh my goodness words totally failed me when I came to the end of this extremely clever and uite captivating story Lucy Robinson is one hell of a talent she's created some characters made a plot and then smashed the reader straight in the face with a great big unexpected twistI started reading The Day We Disappeared with no preconceptions at all I vaguely thought that it would be a kind of romantic comedy and the early chapters seemed to prove that There's certainly a lot of humour in Robinson's writing and romance features uite heavilyI can't say much about the story it's one of those books that would be so easy to spoil in a review and I'm damned if I'm going to spoil this one for anyone Let's say that it's a story of secrets of friends of family and of running away Both Kate and Annie are well formed characters with their own problems their own demons things that have shaped them Lucy Robinson doesn't disclose these secrets easily so I'm certainly not going to eitherTake two scarred and vulnerable women Hide them away from their family their friends and from themselves really Create two new worlds for them an eventing yard and a city business populate both of these with charismatic characters and then add some darkness to the plot Deal with some pretty scary and very serious issues and deal with them sensitively and compassionately but keep the humour going tooThat is exactly what you've got from The Day We Disappeared and I loved it It's one of those books that stay there in the corner of your mind niggling away making you think and wonder and yes making you feel a little bit uneasyThis really is perfect storytelling warm and funny and mysterious and downright terrifying in places

    45 starsI generally don't read Woman's Fiction but the blurb of this novel catched my interest and now I'm glad I gave ventured out of my comfort zoneFrom the blurb Annie has a secret But if she's not going to tell we won't either It's a heart breaking secret she wishes she didn't have yet Annie isn't broken not uite yet Especially now there's someone out there who seems determined to fix herKate has run away But she's not going to tell us why that would defeat the point of running wouldn't it? It's proving difficult to reinvent herself however with one person always on her mindScratch beneath the surface and nobody is really who they seem Even Annie and Kate two old friends aren't entirely sure who they are any Perhaps you can work it out before their pasts catch up with them for good I read some other reviews and I must agree the lives of these two women are connected in a way that no one can guess Really maybe you'll get a strange feeling when you've read on and on but the plot twist does really surprise and I agree with the blurb and dare you to guess the plot twist because that would take hours and you wouldn't guess right I really liked the main characters and all the secondary characters as well and combined with an exciting sometimes light sometimes angsty and dramatic writing style I devoured this read The relationships between Kate and Annie and their bosses were enticing too I especially liked Mark who is your typical cold stubborn Alpha on the outside and a mushy actually sweet and caring guy But there were many other layers and it was a delight to read about all these relationships with their uirks not only those of the main characters but also of the secondary characters I felt like every character was real and authenticLucy Robinson has a true writing talent that goes beneath a realistic and witty narrative voice but also extends to creating a seriously uniue story line which is hard to find in that combination nowadays ARC via NetGalley

    I do have to be careful reviewing this one The reason it is so good is a massive spoiler but just let me tell you all is not as it seems and there are some serious issues underneath Lucy’s fabulous entertaining writing It’s partly about how we appear on the outside isn’t always our real selves As I started to read it seemed a perfectly pleasant romantic story with two storylines I couldn’t uite fit together other than the two women were friends All I can say is keep readingWe are introduced to two women; Kate who has escaped her life physically by running away to a remote eventing stable in Exmoor and Annie who has been trying to escape her life since she was seven and her mother died Annie suffers from severe anxiety which hampers her everyday life and makes it hard for her to form relationships As the story progresses we learn in short flashbacks what happened on her seventh birthday to make her this wayBeing a horse person I also loved Kate being on the farm and the star of the show is undoubtedly Stumpy Mark’s star event horse Where would any of them be without the love of Stumpy? The book is well researched enough that Kate’s complete ignorance of horses does not go un noticed and she confides in someone early on This makes it so much believable that she wouldn’t be outed although there is to this than just thatAnd oh I cried I also laughed Lucy’s books being that wonderful combination that get all your emotions going There’s tension there’s a dash of fear but all in all wonderful real feeling characters And when they don’t uite feel real enough maybe there’s a good reason for thatReview copy provided by publisher

    The Day We Disappeared is sad funny and keeps you guessing It's a brilliantly written book with a clever plot fast pace and intrigue It's a combination of love story and psychological thrillerThere are two parallel stories Annie in London and Kate in Somerset The chapters alternate between the two women each one falling for her handsome boss Kate is clearly running away or hiding from something but is gradually making friends and building a new life for herself Annie has a tragic past which is clear from the outset but has a great network of friends to rely on and keep her focusedIt took me a couple of chapters to get into the book It reads like chick lit which is no bad thing but chick lit has to be very well written to keep me reading all the way through In this case I was sucked into the story soon enough with its humour romance and suspense Then there's the sudden twist which I have to admit I had already suspected but not completely sussed outThe Day We Disappeared is an excellent choice for fans of I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh It's very easy to get so engrossed in the story that you forget the time and then to shout OMG when the twist arrivesI received an Advanced Reader Copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    Rating 435What a lovely read I was in the mood for a Mystery and my friend told me about his book that had a really cool twist Say the words “huge twist” and I’m in And yes oh yes did it take me by surprise But wonderful than any twist is that this book had deep friendship love self healing I liked that one of the MC’s struggled with mental health and it was an important part of her story and it was engaging and at a certain point intense from start from finish The story centers around two girls who know each other each one with her own journey secrets struggles relationships — and I don’t want to say because you need to read this and see what it’s all about The writing is gripping and clever with layers and subtleties building up the story and characters And the characters and relationships are perfect I won’t say — but if you want a book that allows you to connect with the characters be happy and wrecked and terrified with them and totally surprised at the same time then try this book Also I’m not usually a fan of Contemporary books so I’m so happy this one worked out for me
