Book Review of Dear Amy by Helen Callaghan

Here is the book blurb.

Margot Lewis is the agony aunt for The Cambridge Examiner. Her advice column, Dear Amy, gets all kinds of letters – but none like the one she’s just received: 

“Dear Amy, 
I don’t know where I am. I’ve been kidnapped and am being held prisoner by a strange man. I’m afraid he’ll kill me. 
Please help me soon, 
Bethan Avery”

Bethan Avery has been missing for years. This is surely some cruel hoax. But, as more letters arrive, they contain information that was never made public. How is this happening? Answering this question will cost Margot everything . . .

This book was a real page turner. Initially the police don’t seem to take much notice when Margot shows them the first letter she has received from Bethan Avery, even though another young girl Katie has recently disappeared.

But then they want to involve Margot in a Crimewatch style reconstruction of the cold case. There were so many revelations that kept me wanting to read more pages and before I knew it, I had finished the book in just a few days. The story also swaps between Margot’s current life and her history, which builds up a fascinating picture of her life.
