‘Sometimes we can’t see what’s right in front of us, Kat. Everyone has secrets, even the people we love, the people we live with…’
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...
A gripping and suspenseful psychological thriller with more twists and turns than a rollercoaster and an ending that will blow readers’ minds. Fans of The Wife Between Us, The Girl Before and Gone Girl will be gripped by this unputdownable story about a mother’s obsessive love for her child.Readers are loving The Empty Nest:

I could put up with a badly written book if it was interesting. But literally nothing happens during the first three quarters of this book.
We know Kat’s daughter Amy has gone missing and that’s it. Other than that it’s just a long, dull steam of consciousness from Kat. She regularly flits back to memories from the past but with no real structure. She can also weirdly remember word for word conversations that took place many years before and these are just plonked in next to her thoughts on what is happening now. She’s also incredibly annoying as a character and given that it’s told from her perspective, that really grates on you after a while.
The storyline itself could be interesting if it was written properly but it is just so drawn out and focused on one character.
I say nothing happened during the first three quarters of the book, I can’t make a judgement on the last quarter as I gave up. It really was that terminally dull, annoying, and badly written.
It feels as if the book was written in a hurry and that a lot of the words were added in purely as a filler to bulk up the numbers.
If you’ve not yet read a book from Sue Watson I recommend all others apart from this one.
This novel taps into some of our darkest fears as parents, there were times when my stomach twisted in fear, others when I cried in recognition of the feelings of loss Kat experienced at letting go of her daughter as she left for university.
Sue Watson cleverly weaves a cast of potential suspects into this story which ensures you never know how it will end.
Absolutely loved it.
