First, thank you to NetGalley for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This debut novel was a wonderful read! I’m expecting many more good things from Jane Haseldine.
30 years ago, Julia’s brother was abducted from their bedroom and never seen again. She is now an overprotective mom whose marriage is falling apart due to her obsession with her children’s safety. So, don’t you know, one of the boys is kidnapped right out from under her nose. The ensuing story is thrilling, suspenseful and will keep you wondering.
The book has great character development. Yeah, her husband is a jerk, and her friend is a bit of a flake, but all in all the book moves at a good pace, has some believable dialogue and keeps your attention.
