I found this book while perusing kindle unlimited. The blurb sounded interesting, so I grabbed it and gave it a read.
It doesn’t quite live up to its gripping synopsis, but it’s well written, though there’s a lack of tension. I didn’t feel worried for the characters.
And it was very obvious who had taken Aiden, (to me anyway and I always say everyone, but who it was). Along with a couple of cliches of the genre that you’ll guess if you read it.
I would’ve liked more tension and perhaps more interaction between mother, son and father. We’re too much in the mother’s mind. I didn’t really get to feel the after effects of what happened Aiden, how it affected him. However, I did like how Emma was portrayed, I found her realistic.
It did keep me up at night though, stewing over the terrible events that happened in the book.
Despite this, it was a good, quick read if you’re looking for something crime/thriller-like that isn’t too heavy writing wise. It’s available on kindle for 99p or free on unlimited and I consider it worth it.
Note: This book does have themes of child abuse. It is only mentioned and never described graphically.
Normally, this would be considered a spoiler, but I considered it worth mentioning and considering the blurb, it should be fairly obvious anyway.
