24 June, 1994 – Nineteen-year-old Leila Hawkins runs from her father’s birthday party into the stormy night wearing her sister Stella’s long red coat. Some say she was crying, others swear they saw her get into a passing car. Nobody ever saw her again.


Present – This time every year, on the anniversary of that fateful night, Stella decorates the small seaside town she grew up in with pictures of her beautiful missing sister. But after twenty-five years, is it even worth hoping someone will come forward? Perhaps the upcoming documentary will spark people’s memories by reuniting all the guests who were there the night Leila went missing.


As old friends gather and long-buried secrets begin to surface, the last thing Stella ever expects is a direct response from someone claiming they took Leila. They want private details of Stella’s life in return for answers. But as the true events of the night of the party play out once again, who is lying? And who is next?


From the bestselling author of The Perfect Friend, this absolutely gripping psychological thriller will keep you up all night and leave you sleeping with the light on. If you loved GoneGirl, The Girl on the Train and The Wife Between Us this book is for you!

Barbara is the Amazon and USA Today bestselling author of psychological thrillers INVISIBLE, FLOWERS FOR THE DEAD, THE DARKEST LIES, and HER LAST SECRET. 

More importantly, she loves cakes, wildlife photography and, last but definitely not least, her two dogs, Scamp and Buddy (who force her to throw tennis balls for them for hours).

Having spent over twenty years as a national newspaper and magazine journalist, Barbara has interviewed the real victims of crime - and also those who have carried those crimes out. She is fascinated by creating realistic, complex characters, and taking them apart before the readers' eyes in order to discover just how much it takes to push a person over a line.

When not writing feverishly, she is often found hiding behind a camera, taking wildlife photographs.

The Girl In The Missing Poster


Barbara Copperthwaite



Heidi Lynn’s Book Reviews

First, I want to thank Barbara Copperthwaite, Bookouture and NetGalley for providing me this book so I may bring you this review.

Barbara Copperthwaite is a pure creative genius when she created The Girl In The Missing Poster storyline. If you are a true crime TV documentary fan like I am you must add this to your tbr list. This story will literally blow your mind repeatedly over and over again! 

This book is dedicated to Julieanne, Barbara’s friend and life twin. It is also for all the missing and the ones who are left behind.

Instantly my heart went out to Stella who we find out her sister went missing without a trace 25 years ago. Not just her sister-her identical twin sister. I can’t even fathom the idea if one of my sisters went missing! 

My favorite part of Barbara’s book was the documentary series investigating Lelia's disappearance on Netflix! What sets her book from the others is she had written in the documentary transcript. When you read this section you can mentally see this play out as a tv series in your mind. It was very clever how she did this. 

Through this documentary that they are filming you get a better idea of the bond the two sisters shared, you learn about their parents, past loves, etc. 

Dog lovers are in for a big treat with this storyline. Barbara gave Stella a very unique career path in being a dog behaviorist. It was not a profession I had ever heard about. However, I got to learn all about it. 

There were a lot of powerful sayings in this book that hit close to home for me personally. 

Barbara’s climatic ending basically left me speechless! It was one of the best endings I have ever read. It was one of the most powerful endings that came out of nowhere. 

The Girl In The Missing Poster has a Netflix series written all over it! Oh what an amazing series that would make! 

After reading Barbara’s book I totally fell in love with her writing style! She definitely gained a new fan in me! I would love to read and review more of her books.
