Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
I will do anything to protect my daughter. She’s all I’ve ever wanted and all I really have, but the moment I opened that letter and accepted the inheritance, I walked us right into a dangerous trap.
I know I should have got her to tell me who she’s been talking to on the phone late at night, and where she was the day I went to pick her up from school and couldn’t find her, but she’s not spoken a word since she found that little pile of bones buried in the garden.
And now she’s missing…
A jaw-dropping, addictive and totally twisty psychological thriller that will have you sleeping with the light on! Perfect for anyone who loved The Girl on the Train, Friend Request or The Wife Between Us.
Single mother Mel is struggling . . . . she’s escaped an abusive relationship and is endeavouring to bring up her twelve year old daughter, Kate, alone. However keeping food on their table, paying the rent on time and all the usual financial headaches just don’t get any easier until a surprising letter gives them the chance for a fresh start with an inheritance of a property and life changing sum of money . . . but who is it from? What’s the catch?
This is a story of a mum who will do all she can to protect her daughter but, in her endeavour to make the right decisions, sometimes makes totally wrong ones. It is a story of relationships, secrets, surprises, shocks and betrayal, complete with plenty of twists after a so normal start. It is an engaging psychological thriller that will definitely help distract you from our current lockdown reality!
