“NOW YOU SEE HER” – Joy Fielding – 2011
“Marcy Taggert lost her 21-year old daughter, Devon, in a canoeing accident a year ago. But because Devon’s body was never recovered from the waters, Marcy has found it difficult to come to terms with her death and keeps seeing her daughter in the faces of strangers. Now, on a holiday to Ireland – which should have been a celebration of her 25th wedding anniversary until her husband left her for another woman – Marcy is convinced she has just seen Devon walk past her table where she is sitting in a pub in Cork. Desperate to prove that she is not going mad, and that her daughter is still alive, Marcy begins a search to find Devon. But what if the truth, though her only salavation, is even more disturbing than she could ever have imagined?”

This had me sitting on the edge of my chair frantically turning each page to follow Marcy in her search. Excellent suspense right up until the end. Believeable characters and dialogues in a novel where we feel we are actually visiting Dublin and Cork with Marcy, learning loads of Irish history along the way. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be looking out for more Joy Fielding novels at my local library.
