MY REVIEW

A missing child – my most favorite trope – and I was hooked. Lottie disappeared from a wedding proceedings and it was hell on earth for mum Alex

My second book by author Tess Stimson, I was quickly taken over by the mystery and the pain that rocked the world of the mother.

The story was realistic in its emotions. But therein started my niggles too. The story dragged in the midsection. The prose needed more red herrings. Some parts were slightly unbelievable.

Overall I loved the premise and the twisted ending which blindsighted me completely. I had fixed my focus on another suspect… But I was so wrong.

I enjoyed that I was hoodwinked, and if the mid section had been sharper, this would have been a rocking thriller.

MY RATING

Rating: 3 out of 5.

BOOK BLURB

You thought she was safe. You were wrong…

Alex knows her daughter would never wander off in a strange place. So when her three-year-old vanishes from an idyllic beach wedding, Alex immediately believes the worast.

The hunt for Lottie quickly becomes a world-wide search, but it’s not long before suspicion falls on her mother. Why wasn’t she watching Lottie?

Alex knows she’s not perfect, but she loves her child. And with all eyes on her, Alex fears they’ll never uncover the truth unless she takes matters into her own hands.

Who took Lottie Martini? And will she ever come home?

BOOK DETAILS

Publication Date: August 2021

I downloaded the digital version of the book from an online retail, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.

  1. I totally agree, Shalini. I have to write my review of this one, but it will be very similar to yours. I also think the middle was a bit too slow, but overall, a good thriller. I also had a different suspect in mind, it was a great twist.
