Weekend Read: Precious Thing by Colette McBeth


To me a good book has several twists and turns and leaves you thinking 'what the….' at the end. Precious Thing by Colette McBeth is exactly that book. 

At the start we meet Rachel, a news reporter who is called back to her hometown to report on the disappearance of a young woman. 

The missing young woman turns out to be Rachel's best friend Clara… As Rachel goes about finding her missing friend, she discovers things which makes her question whether they were actually real friends at all. There a lot of questions to be answered - but until Clara is found, who will answer them?

This is an addictive read which I devoured in just a few hours, desperate to know how it was going to end. The ending is a real: 'Nooooooooo!' moment. You just don't see it coming. 

If you liked Gone Girl, then you'll really love this. Though it may leave you questioning your best friend…
