It’s every mother’s worst nightmare…All NEW from Gemma Rogers

Snatched in broad daylight from Bushy Park on a trip to the swings, Eden disappears without a trace.

Brooke Simmons, regains consciousness, dazed from a blow to the head, to find Eden, her best friend’s child is missing.

Someone has taken Eden and Brooke knows who.

But it’s a secret she can’t share with Ali or the Police without revealing the web of deceit she’s spun.

I needed to read this book when I read the blurb, it sounded right up my street and it really didn’t disappoint. This has been told from the point of view of three of the main characters and I thought it was brilliant. To get the point of view of the abductor is very rare and I really enjoyed getting his point of view. It was a very different experience but one I really enjoyed.

I felt quite sorry for Ali, she has an abusive husband, granted they were both under a lot of pressure but there was no need for him to physically try and strangle her. I really wasn’t a fan of Christopher. He pissed me off if I’m honest and I wanted to throttle him. Christopher was quite whiny if you ask me. He made the abduction all about him, when it was actually all about Eden.

Brooke I’m not too sure of. She really shouldn’t have lied to Jimmy about Eden, she also shouldn’t have exploited the situation, but she did, for her own gain. However, I did feel sorry for her and the hit she took. She didn’t know Jimmy was going to do what he did.

Jimmy, I definitely felt sorry for, he abducted Eden, under the impression that she was his daughter and was about to be taken from him. However, he did go about it the wrong way. If that had been me in that situation I’d have asked for the DNA test as proof.

Would I recommend the book? Yes I would, it was brilliantly written, fast-paced and I loved the three person point of view. Very unusal way of writing, but it worked.
