An absolutely gripping and emotional pause resister
"You wouldn't trust a stranger with your wallet. Or your house keys. So why your little girl, the most precious thing you have?"
Teresa’s heart stops when she enters her daughter’s bedroom to find that her sweet, trusting little girl is gone.
Teresa can’t bear to think who would snatch a terrified three-year-old from her mother in the middle of the night, but all the signs point to someone close to home. Hasn’t Jessica’s stepfather been acting a little oddly? Or is it, as Teresa is beginning to fear, something to do with Angie, her daughter’s babysitter who lives next door...?
Gentle, retired Angie - she must be lonely, with only her memories to keep her company in that big, old house. And she’s always had a special connection with Jessica...was trusting Angie with her precious daughter the biggest mistake of Teresa’s life?
What do we really know about those who watch our children? Jessica’s Promise is a compelling domestic drama for fans of Jodi Picoult, Lisa Wingate, and Kerry Fisher.
