Wishlist Wednesday: Just What Kind of Mother are You, Paula Daly

Wishlist Wednesday is a weeklies hosted by Pen to Paper. As I have enough wishes when it comes to books I decided to join this weekly and tell you about them. I am obviously curious about the books on your wishlist too so feel free to leave a message.

What if your best friend's child disappears? And it was all your fault.
This is exactly what happens to Lisa Kallisto, overwhelmed working mother of three, one freezing December in the English Lakes District. She takes her eye off the ball for just a moment and her whole world descends into the stuff of nightmares. Because, not only is thirteen-year-old Lucinda missing, and not only is it all Lisa's fault, but she's the second teenage girl to disappear within this small tightknit community over two weeks. The first girl turned up stripped bare, dumped on a busy high street, after suffering from a terrifying ordeal.
Wracked with guilt over her mistake and after being publicly blamed by Lucinda's family, Lisa sets out to right the wrong. But as she begins peeling away the layers surrounding Lucinda's disappearance, Lisa learns that the small, posh, quiet town she lives in isn't what she thought it was, and her friends may not be who they appear, either.

The cover was the first thing that caught my eye. When I read the title of the book I was curious what it was about exactly. Reading the synopsis I thought girl missing in small community and I just knew I had to put this book on my list.

It sounds really good -- but I get really upset when I read books about missing or injured children, no matter how good the mystery is! (Ever since I became a mom, I'm much more sensitive to certain types of stories). It does sound like a great choice, would love to hear how you like it once you read it.
