Dear AmyDear Amy by Helen Callaghan

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In her guise as ‘Dear Amy’, agony aunt for a local newspaper, Margot Lewis has dealt with all sorts of letters – but never one like this…Dear Amy, I’ve been kidnapped by a strange man. I don’t know where I am. Please help me, Bethan Avery. This must be a cruel hoax. Because Bethan Avery has been missing for nearly two decades.
A very interesting premise that didn’t live up to its billing, nor its very high cover price. The problem with the book for me was the monologue type of meandering through Margot’s life and introspection. The is a danger that the reader gets really annoyed with this and stops caring and stops reading. To be the first class psychological suspense novel it claims to be, for me it would have to be much tighter, have lots more suspense and a believable plot.
I received a copy of this novel via Netgalley.

Dear Amy is available from Amazon here.
