I’m back on my mystery/thriller run, and I’ve got one you may have missed in your January reads!
Thank you Avon Books for my gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis: 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 worst. 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?
This may be tough to read as a mother of a young daughter like myself, but I read it much like the movie “Taken” with Liam Neeson. It was adventurous as such towards the middle of the story, but fell flat in the end for me. If you suspend your disbelief, I think you may be okay with how the book ended, but it’s a bit far fetched. Not a bad read, but not one I would read again.
