All the Lovely Children by Andrew Nance

Here is the book blurb.

Charly Bloom’s life took a wrong turn that has left her alone and frustrated. When she gets a call from an old flame, she returns to her hometown to investigate the disappearances of four children. The abductions are eerily similar to a set of previous crimes.

Two decades ago, Charly and her two friends decided to play amateur detectives and help find a girl who was stolen from her home. Then, another girl went missing. Clues overlooked by the inept sheriff left only one child to survive: Charly. She managed to fight back and kill the Snatcher. Or so everyone thought…

Is the Snatcher back, or is there a copycat? Charly must face her past and her own personal demons in a race against time to save the latest victim.

The book starts in 1982 when four young girls have been abducted in Temperance, North Carolina. It sounds very similar to another series of abductions in the town back in 1959, when Charly was a young girl herself. Charly, now a private investigator, agrees to return to her hometown to help the sheriff, Kit, an old flame, with the case.

The book switches back and forth between 1959 and 1982. So first time round, Charly had managed to evade her mum keeping her home and do some amateur sleuthing with her best friends, although it almost got Charly murdered herself. But she fought back and killed the Snatcher.

So why are there so many similarities this time? And how is it affecting Charly, bringing back all the horrific memories?

All the Lovely Children is available on Amazon, currently priced at £11.39  in paperback and is also available in Kindle format. A good read which weaves the two timelines together well.
