At 99p, it is a steal!!


Oh my freak!! This was the book that kept calling my name all through the day until I finished it.

I read four chapters of it in the afternoon, and I was in a trance. I wanted to read the book at one go. But work and life forced their way into my reading time, and I had to let go of my kindle. But fear not!! The shadowy tendrils of the intriguing plotline beckoned me all through. Full credit to author Charlotte Duckworth.

Hyperemesis Gravidarum – a condition which led to difficult pregnancy. Post that Esther was happy when her husband decided to be a stay at home dad to look after Riley. Everything seemed wonderful. Rob was the perfect father. Until she received a message with just a word. Sorry.

My second book by this author, I loved if far more. Filled with suspense and intrigue, the book kept giving spikes to my heart rate. The twists started early on, and the author knew how to keep inciting my curiosity. I was shocked at how addicted I was to this book.

The day was filled with stress due to adult life and this book – yes, this very book – provided me the best escape route. Just when I knew what was happening in the story, the author pulled the rug from under my feet. Everything I knew went for a toss, and there was a new interpretation to all the lines I had read in the chapters bygone.

I read the book with my breath hitched in my throat, wanting to know how it would all end. And let me tell you one last thing…

Omg this was so freaking awesome.

I loved everything in the book.

The perfect husband…

After a difficult pregnancy, Esther is grateful that her forward-thinking husband Robin offers to put his career on hold so that she can return to the job she loves.

The perfect father…

Robin flourishes in his new role of stay-at-home parent, but Esther finds leaving her daughter behind to go to work more challenging than she’d thought, and soon the imbalance in their relationship brings old tensions to the surface.

A perfect lie?

Then one day Esther arrives home from work to find Robin and Riley are missing. As the police investigate their disappearance, it becomes clear that nothing about this modern- day family is what it seems…

Was Robin the perfect father everyone thought he was? Or was it all a perfect lie?

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
