She told my little boy a secret and now he’s gone…
Tucking her little boy Ollie into bed one night, Sarah notices his beloved teddy bear, which she bought him when he was born, is missing and in its place is a new toy given to him by her ex-husband’s new girlfriend, Laura. When she asks Ollie about it, he begins to shift uncomfortably, before whispering ‘Laura told me a big secret and she said I can never tell you’.
Sarah’s heart sinks. But when she raises her concerns, nobody wants to listen. To everyone else, Laura is the perfect stepmother and Sarah is just the jealous ex-wife. But Sarah knew the moment she met Laura she couldn’t trust her, from her overly perfect stepmother act to the way she evaded questions about her own history.
Soon Ollie is asking to spend more time with his dad and Laura, and shrinking away from Sarah. Then, when she calls to him in the garden one day, Ollie doesn’t answer back. The garden is silent. Ollie’s sandpit is empty. Ollie has disappeared.
Another Sheryl Browne book that didn’t disappoint! The best way to describe the plot of this book is a love triangle … on steroids!
It seems Sarah and Steve have moved on from their failed marriage. Each seems happy with a new significant other but when Sarah requires an in-person meeting with Steve’s new girlfriend Laura, something doesn’t sit right with her.
Sarah is suspicious of Laura’s past and how it might connect to her niggling concerns about her intentions regarding her son, Ollie. As Ollie spends more time over Laura and Steve’s house, Sarah becomes more and more suspicious about “something” not being right!
Once again, Sheryl Browne constructs an intricate cast of characters and rightly weaves together a plot that will have you on edge up to the last page!
I can’t guarantee that you won’t guess how the story ends but I will tell you this… someone in this story is crazzzzzy. It might not be who you think and it will definitely keep you hooked. If this is your first Sheryl Browne book… I would first ask where the heck you’ve been, but then I would say, you’ll be sure to pick up all of her others! Welcome to the crazy train! Lol love me some Sheryl Browne books! Xo
