Liked this book. I felt sorry for the friend and her one mistake by watching her friend's child. Good and easy read.

Overall, I liked the book. It was an easy read, captivating story, but I would caution some readers: there is child abduction, domestic abuse (emotional mostly but physical too) and murder. Maybe it’s just me but I keep asking myself: what was her one mistake?

This was a complete waste of a few hours. I kept hoping it would get better. It didn't. The writing fell flat, the characters were ridiculous, and the ending was predictable.

Her One Mistake by Heidi Perks is one of the most interesting psychological thrillers I have read in a long time. Charlotte, an extrovert single mom of three children has become best friends with Harriet, a reclusive married mother of one daughter, Alice. Because Harriet seems over-protective of her daughter, she has never left her with anyone until the day of the school fair. Because she needs to attend a class, Harriet drops Alice off with Charlotte so all the children can enjoy the fair. Then the worse that can happen, happens. Alice disappears while playing with Charlotte's kids. She is nowhere to be found. The police are called and Harriet and her husband must be notified. Imagine babysitting your best friend's child and then losing her without a trace. Charlotte's and Harriet's worlds are thrown upside down and their friendship severely damaged. What follows is so convoluted that the reader will never guess the outcome. The storyline is very original and fast-paced. This thriller does not disappoint. Highly recommended.
