I turn to where I left my baby in his pushchair and pull up short. With a racing heart, I look around wildly, fear gripping my stomach. I only looked away for a moment. The pushchair and my baby are gone.
Kelly is taking her twin daughters to their first day of school, ushering them into the classroom, her heart breaking to think they might not need her any more, when she turns around and sees that her newborn baby is gone.
As a desperate search ensues, baby Noah is quickly found – parked in front of a different classroom. But when Kelly reaches forward to comfort him, she finds something tucked beside his blanket. A locket that belonged to her sister Freya. A locket Kelly hasn’t seen since the day Freya died.
And then Kelly’s perfectly-ordered life begins to unravel…
This was a solid thriller. Wendy Clarke’s book is twisty and well written. She introduces an intriguing cast of characters and a problem that readers won’t be able to resist finding out the meaning behind.
This story is narrated by Kelly who tells her story from present and past time periods. As she weaves together Kelly’s story and makes connections to her current life and her past life, a plot begins to slowly unravel at just the right speed.
I enjoyed this story a lot and will definitely read more books by Wendy Clarke.
