I loved, loved, loved the book. I couldn’t stop reading it, even when it was 2am. I had to know the truth. The book captured me so slyly that I was the prey in the web it wove around me.
The cover and a missing child arc always makes me pick up the BOOK. The main character Libby paid a huge price for just a moment of distraction. Her son rushed to the elevator all by himself to press the shiny buttons. AND HE WAS LOST!! The cameras caught the back of a woman walking with him…
Haylen Beck is amazing, I couldn’t believe the way his writing pulled me slowly into the story with its emotions. I thought I knew thrillers. What I didn’t know was that a thriller can cause so many emotions to wrench my heart along with fear and angst. I loved the way the author made me go – No no don’t do it!! But alas the characters didn’t listen to me.
I didn’t know one can have a story filled with a mind gripping thrill, the kinds that made me scream, with just two main characters. The scenes molded in a smooth manner, the tension never let go. There were times when I couldn’t believe what I was reading, all in a good way.
How far could two women go when they believe they are entitled to a child… FAR… VERY VERY FAR
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher Vintage Digital, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
Libby would do anything for her three-year-old son Ethan. And after all they’ve been through, a holiday seems the perfect antidote for them both. Their hotel is peaceful, safe and friendly, yet Libby can’t help feeling that someone is watching her. Watching Ethan. Because, for years, Libby has lived with a secret.
Just days into their holiday, when Libby is starting to relax, Ethan steps into an elevator on his own, and the doors close before Libby can stop them. Moments later, Ethan is gone.
Libby thought she had been through the worst, but her nightmare is only just beginning. And in a desperate hunt for her son, it becomes clear she’s not the only one looking for him.
