This is the first book I read by the author Jake Cross and wow was it really good. He is my new favorite author. It is a stand alone novel which is nice.
This book is about a mother, Anna, who will do anything to get her five year old daughter back. I really liked how the author portrayed Anna. All this mother wanted was to get her daughter back and would stop at nothing to do this. In the end she had to be brave and face her demons of the past to do this.
I also liked there were so many twists and turns throughout the whole book. You never knew what surprise was coming next. This book had me guessing up til the end. I just love books like this.
Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
