Thank you to Amazon Publishing for gifting me a beautiful hardcover copy of this book to read and share my review with my followers. Can we take a few moments to just admire the beauty of this book cover? Absolutely beautiful I LOVE IT!!



A page-turning debut of suspense about a young couple desperate to have a child of their own—and the unsettling consequences of getting what they always wanted.

Christopher and Hannah are a happily married surgeon and nurse with picture-perfect lives. All that’s missing is a child. When Janie, an abandoned six-year-old, turns up at their hospital, Christopher forms an instant connection with her, and he convinces Hannah they should take her home as their own.

But Janie is no ordinary child, and her damaged psyche proves to be more than her new parents were expecting. Janie is fiercely devoted to Christopher, but she acts out in increasingly disturbing ways, directing all her rage at Hannah. Unable to bond with Janie, Hannah is drowning under the pressure, and Christopher refuses to see Janie’s true nature.

Hannah knows that Janie is manipulating Christopher and isolating him from her, despite Hannah’s attempts to bring them all together. But as Janie’s behavior threatens to tear Christopher and Hannah apart, the truth behind Janie’s past may be enough to push them all over the edge.



Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it!!

Oh my goodness! Just WOW!!! This book is simply amazing! This novel will have you sitting on the edge of your seat, gasping and breathless over the craziness and goings-on in this novel! I loved how dark and twisty this novel was and you will NOT be disappointed!!

Christopher and Hannah are a happily married couple. One is a doctor and one is a nurse. The only thing missing in their happy lives is a child of their own. They desperately want a child and then as luck would have it young Janie comes into their lives. She needs a place to live, they want a child in their home… PERFECT! Talk about great timing! They decide to take her into their home until more permanent arrangements can be made.

This novel is told in alternating POV’s – Christopher’s and Hannah’s. There is much suspicion as to the way Janie came into their lives. Where does she come from? Where are her parents? As the mystery of Janie begins to unfold, not everything is as it first appeared to be, and it is clear there are way more dark and sinister parts at play here. Janie becomes manipulative, often pitting Christopher and Hannah against one another, and shows favouritism.

Without giving too much away this is definitely a must read that you need to add to your TBR list right now!! You will not regret it.


MY RATING: 5/5 stars
