Many thanks to Suzy and Suzy Approved Book Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.
This book was quite striking, a family drama which soon turned into a thriller.
Josh’s partner Grace died suddenly, and he became the sole caretaker of her 7 year old son Logan. He needed the child’s birth certificate to apply for guardianship. That started the ball rolling as there was no document for Logan other than his vaccination certificate. Josh’s need to get to the answers raised the pitch of the book so much that I was rolling in excitement too.
My first book by Hannah Mary McKinnon, this was a great domestic suspense with a few of over the top reactions by Josh. I didn’t mind that. Josh was a great father, his love for Logan kept the book alive. It seeped in his every action. There may have been times when he slipped up but his heart was always in the right place.
I like thrillers and I don’t mind if a story became mysterious and thrilling. In fact, I look forward to that. The author did not disappoint. The book took some twists and turns, and soon Josh’s questions led to secrets and reveals and a truth so horrifying that I could only stare at it with widened eyes. Oh my!!
Hannah’s characters touched my heart especially his sister and his best friend. They stood by him through thick and thin. Few scenes were a bit far-fetched, but the entire book gripped me so much that this book became my favorite read.
Twists and turns, actions and reactions, lies and truth were weaved beautifully by author Hannah McKinnon, but this story was actually about love. A father’s love for his son. Period.
I got the book from Amazon, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!

When Josh’s longtime partner, Grace, dies in a tragic accident, he is left with a mess of grief—and full custody of her seven-year-old son, Logan. While not his biological father, Josh has been a dad to Logan in every way that counts, and with Grace gone, Logan needs him more than ever.
Wanting to do right by Logan, Josh begins the process of becoming his legal guardian—something that seems suddenly urgent, though Grace always brushed it off as an unnecessary formality. But now, as Josh struggles to find the paperwork associated with Logan’s birth, he begins to wonder whether there were more troubling reasons for Grace’s reluctance to make their family official.
As he digs deeper into the past of the woman he loved, Josh soon finds that there are many dark secrets to uncover, and that the truth about where Logan came from is much more sinister than he could have imagined…
