Thank you to Simon and Schuster Canada for gifting me a beautiful paperback ARC copy of this book to read and share my review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
A moment on the subway platform changes two women’s lives forever—a debut thriller that will take your breath away.
A total stranger on the subway platform whispers, “Take my baby.”
She places her child in your arms. She says your name.
Then she jumps…
In a split second, Morgan Kincaid’s life changes forever. She’s on her way home from work when a mother begs her to take her baby, then places the infant in her arms. Before Morgan can stop her, the distraught mother jumps in front of an oncoming train.
Morgan has never seen this woman before, and she can’t understand what would cause a person to give away her child and take her own life. She also can’t understand how this woman knew her name.
The police take Morgan in for questioning. She soon learns that the woman who jumped was Nicole Markham, prominent CEO of the athletic brand Breathe. She also learns that no witness can corroborate her version of events, which means she’s just become a murder suspect.
To prove her innocence, Morgan frantically retraces the last days of Nicole’s life. Was Nicole a new mother struggling with paranoia or was she in danger? When strange things start happening to Morgan, she suddenly realizes she might be in danger, too.
Addictive, thrilling, and edgy (see what I did there!). This book will have you sitting on the edge of your seat as you flip through the pages to see how the story unfolds and see what will happen next. Imagine you are standing and waiting for your train to come, and a stranger approaches you saying “take my baby” then places the baby in your arms and falls in front of an oncoming train. Wow!
I love how this book dives right into the heart-pulsing drama from the very beginning of this story. Woman on the Edge is told from alternating POV’s – Morgan in the now, and Nicole from before. I loved how it was written this way to show both sides of the entire story from each woman’s point of view. and also reading from Nicole in the “before” helps us to understand what was going on in her life that led to the events in the here and now.
I enjoyed reading about both Nicole and Morgan’s characters, and they were both likeable and fun to read about. I loved learning about their individual lives, and the events that led to their fateful meeting that day on the subway platform.
Full of twists and turns, darkness and secrets, this book will draw you in to the very end! Way to go Samantha, I look forward to reading your other novels!
MY RATING: 5/5 stars
