ABOUT THE BOOK:
Two strangers, a child, and a split second choice that will change everything . . .
Ellen was just trying to help a stranger. That was how it started: giving a few minutes respite to a flustered young mother sitting opposite her on the train. A few minutes holding her baby while the mother makes an urgent call. The weight of the child in her arms making Ellen’s heart ache for what she can never have.
Five minutes pass.
The train pulls into a station and Ellen is stunned to see the mother hurrying away down the platform, without looking back. Leaving her baby behind. Ellen is about to raise the alarm when she discovers a note in the baby’s bag, three desperate lines scrawled hastily on a piece of paper:
Please protect Mia
Don’t trust the police
Don’t trust anyone
Why would a mother abandon her child to a stranger? Ellen is about to discover that the baby in her arms might hold the key to an unspeakable crime. And doing the right thing might just cost her everything . . .
I am no stranger to books by the incredible TM Logan and once I heard about his latest novel TRUST ME, you know I just had to get my hands on a copy! And I was not disappointed!
A woman named Ellen meets young mother Kathryn and her young infant daughter Mia on the train. They get to chatting then Kathryn asks Ellen to hold baby Mia for just a few moments so she could take a phone call. Shortly after Kathryn leaves the train, and Ellen can see her walking away from the train platform, while she is still holding baby Mia. What the heck is going on here? Did she forget her baby? Why would she leaves her? How could a mother simply forget her baby?
There is much more going on here and Ellen is determined to find out just what exactly that is. What unfolds is pulse-pounding, thrilling, omg moments from beginning to end as Ellen uncovers the truth about baby Mia. People are after them, but she has no idea who those people are… are they trustworthy? Does Ellen need to protect them from those searching for them, or are those people out to help her with the best of intentions? Ellen is in the dark and not really sure what is going on, what to believe and who to trust.
I enjoyed the cat and mouse chase of this novel and the uncertainty of what is truly going on. Some people I thought could be trustworthy but turned out to be the ones she needed to avoid. Others she avoided or I thought she should avoid and be weary of, and yet those were the ones she could have (and should have) trusted all along. I loved the fact that everything was unpredictable and not easy at all to figure out and it kept me on my toes and guessing the whole way to the very shocking ending!
A fabulous book that I definitely recommend you add to your TBR list right now! Happy reading friends and way to go TM Logan. I am highly anticipating your next novel!
