Hello book friends,
I’m super happy to bring you a review for this fab read, that quite frankly scared the pants off of me, the thought of a stranger just being in your house when you arrive home makes me a bit 😲
Why Did You Pick It Up Vicci?
Well for one, if you’ve never read a book by Shalini Boland before then you are really missing out on some great reads, and also have you read the blurb to this book??!!
So I don’t mind telling you that this one terrified me, and I don’t really know why!
I think it is something to do with the fact that Tessa Markham comes home from work one day, let’s herself in and makes her way into the kitchen, only to find a small child in there, who turns around and says “Are you my Mummy?”
Now I’m sure if I was in that situation in real life, I wouldn’t have said ARGHHHHH!!! (or something vaguely similar) but I did, those words just took me back to early 2000’s and that horrid Doctor Who episode called The Empty Child, and he wasn’t cute….he wasn’t cute at all!!
Anyhoo I digress.
Tessa finds the said (non evil) child in her kitchen and panics, what does she do? Who does she tell? and where the hell did he come from?
After calling the police and getting the side eye from them, she suddenly gets labelled as a child abductor, and people that know her, start looking at her in a different light.
Did she steal that child?, Is she what people are calling her?, or is there something sinister going on?
She doesn’t remember taking him, but her mind has been a little distracted after her recent tragedy, so who knows.
The press hound her, and her ex boyfriend isn’t helping much either.
Be prepared to whizz your way through this one, it’s a cracker!
I listened to the Audiobook narrated by Katie Villa who did a brilliant job , I will certainly be looking out for other titles that she has narrated.
