Publisher's Summary

It was fate that she crossed my path. And that is why I chose her.

The day Louisa and James bring their newborn son home from the hospital marks a new beginning for all of them. To hold their child in their arms makes all the stress and trauma of fertility treatment worth it. Little Cory is theirs and theirs alone. Or so they think....

After her mother’s suicide when she was a child, Louisa’s life took an even darker turn. But meeting James changed everything. She can trust him to protect her and to never leave her. Even if deep down she worries that she has never told him the full truth about her past - or the truth about their baby.

But someone knows all her secrets, and that person is watching and waiting, with a twisted game that will try to take everything Louisa holds dear.

Perfect for fans of Louise Jensen.

wanted to like

This book was horrible. It dragged on and on and on. I couldn't understand what the heck was going on either because there was no male voice as a narrator but a couple males talk and it's hard to tell them apart from the women. I was very disappointed with this book. Don't waste the credit or money. The ending is the only decent part and it's not worth the money.

What??? Please rewrite the ending.

I loved this book and had no idea who the bad guy(s) were. It’s back and forth as to who, if anyone, was trying to steal her child. Good psychological thriller, but I didn’t like the end. This could have easily been a super 5-star rating, but the ending let me down.

powerful narration, weak story

The narration by Anna Cordell kept me engaged with this story, but the story itself was unsatisfying. It tried too hard to generate diversions that ended up being irritating distractions. The characters were paper thin and unrealistic and the back story which could have been developed in interesting and meaningful ways turned out to be somewhat farcical.

Disappointing

Personally I did not like the ending. It all got very confusing at the end.
