Drawn into a world of new friends, she spends increasing amounts of time online and volunteers more and more information about herself.When one of her new friends goes offline, Yvonne thinks something is wrong, but dismisses her fears. After all, does she really know this woman?But when the body of a young woman with striking similarities to Yvonne’s missing friend is found, Yvonne realizes that they’re all in terrifying danger. Can she persuade Sergeant Claire Boyle, herself about to go on maternity leave, to take her fears seriously?

Pre-Order The Book:
I always looking for new Mystery/Thriller novel or series to sink my teeth in to, so when I saw this one on Netgalley I had to check it out! I am on the fence about how I feel after reading this book. On one hand the mystery was very interesting and kept me guessing for a good while. On the other hand, the book dragged a bit for me and whilst the forum conversations were very much part of the story most of the time, sometimes they just felt like fillers. I also feel that the author fell in the "tell instead of showing" trap. Most of the action and dialogues were told in the third person while looking back when the characters were already on their way to doing something else, which made the book drag even more. All in all, Can Anybody Help Me, was an ok book and it was a better mystery.
