The Empty Nest by Sue Watson
About The Book
Kat remembers the days when her only daughter Amy wouldn’t leave her side. Amy was the baby who cried when you walked out of the room, the toddler who was too shy to speak to strangers, the small child who clung to Kat’s legs in the school playground.
But now Amy is grown up, and Amy is gone – to university in a town several hours away. Kat’s house – which once felt too full, too noisy, too busy – is deathly quiet, and Kat awaits the daily phone call to tell her that her beloved daughter is thriving and happy.
Until the day Amy doesn’t call, sending Kat into a panic. Her husband and friends say she’s being paranoid – surely Amy is just out, having fun? But Kat feels sure something is very wrong – she knows her daughter, and she would never just disappear.
As the hours turn into days, her fears are confirmed: Amy is missing. But there are secrets about her daughter that Kat doesn’t know about yet. And the truth about Amy’s whereabouts may be closer to home than Kat could ever imagine…
Kat and Amy are more than mother and daughter, they are best friends, so, Kat is not taking very well that Amy has left for the university, she is missing her so much! But when in the first weekend that Amy has to return home she doesn’t appear and is not returning the calls or messages, Kat will start suspecting that something really bad has happened. The problem is that no one is believing her! What she will do?
This is one of those stories that you can understand easily the characters feelings and thoughts, even if sometimes I thought that Kat was too overprotective and too much obsessed with her daughter, I could understand easily that when her daughter didn’t answer her phone and no one knew about her, she was scared that something bad had really happened.
Of course there are a lot of secrets and twists on the story, starting that is not the first time that Kat has been scared that something happened to Amy and there was nothing to worry about… that’s why neither the police or Kat’s husband believe her. So, Kat will have to ask for help to Amy’s best friend and her mother.
The Empty Nest is a way to remember that no matter how much we think that we know someone, there’s always a hidden part of them that we can not see and that it could surprise us, for better or worse.
Be prepared for secrets and twists, surprises and lies, all of them wrapped beautifully to this delicious psychological thriller!

About The Author
Sue Watson was a TV Producer at the BBC until she wrote her first book and was hooked.
USA Today bestselling author, Sue has written fifteen novels – many involving cake – which have been translated into several languages and involved tough ‘cake research.’ Sue is now exploring the darker side of life with her thrillers OUR LITTLE LIES, THE WOMAN NEXT DOOR and THE EMPTY NEST. Writing in this new genre doesn’t involve the deep research of baked goods and Sue’s hoping the change in direction will be reflected on the weighing scales.
Originally from Manchester, Sue now lives with her husband and teenage daughter in Worcestershire where much of her day is spent procrastinating, eating and watching ‘My 600lb Life,’ on the sofa.
