Chosen Child, Linda Huber
The story: Ella longs for a child and thinks she’s found the answers to her prayers when at an adoption party she and husband Rick are introduced to Soraya. Amanda discovers she’s pregnant but doesn’t know if the baby’s her husband Gareth’s or her lover James’s. These two seemingly unconnected situations become intertwined when a disappearance leads to a gruesome find.
My review: I was gripped from the start, wondering at what point these two stories would come together. I didn’t have long to wait and it wasn’t in the way I expected. What starts as a tragedy turns into a crime. This is a deliciously suspenseful story where one awful secret leads to another and the characters start to wonder how well they know each other and should trust each other. There are lots of near-miss moments and I was kept guessing about how it would end. If you’re a fan of psychological thrillers and domestic noir, you should definitely read this book!
My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
