    Description

    What if the person you trust most in the world is lying to you? 

    I’d heard of the Baby Caroline case, of course. When a baby is snatched from her mother’s arms, the whole country knows about it. I knew about the parents left lying by the swimming pool, the open window in the nursery. But I never dreamed it had anything to do with me. 

    Today, my beautiful daughter turned one. We were unwrapping gifts and blowing out candles when the knock came at the door, and they took my mother away. The police say she’s not really my mother. That she stole me, 30 years ago.

    When I visit her, desperate for answers, she looks me in the eye, and says nothing. I can barely breathe. Is my whole life a lie? I have to find out, but the more I learn, the more scared I become. And soon I start to wonder, am I losing my grip on reality, or is my own daughter in terrible danger? 

    An absolutely gripping psychological thriller, perfect for fans of Gillian Flynn, Ruth Ware, and Lisa Jewell.

    PERFECT

    What else can I say...other one than in my opinion the author did it all as well as did the narrator! Thank you Audible!

    Don't pass this one up!

    I'm a fan of Miranda Smith and like her other titles, this one was really good. Marion has led a pretty sheltered life on account of her mother never wanting to travel or go anywhere. Never knowing fully why, Marion was prohibited from participating in school trips, sleep overs, and often wondered why she'd never met any other family members to include her own father. Now, an adult with a child of her own, Marion's life is flipped on its head when her mother is arrested at the birthday party she's put together for her own one-year old daughter, Ava. With so many questions and very few answers, Marion is determined to get to the bottom of everything only, who is she to believe? Will she believe the mother who raised her or the one claiming to be her mother after years of trying to find her after she was kidnapped from her crib at just three months old? The book goes back and forth from past and present. It is told from Marion's present time and Eileen's past. Brace yourselves for a plot-twisting ride as Marion seeks out the truth of the past.

    Ruined by the ending

    Don’t want to give any hints on how it ended but I felt it was ridiculous. Had to put away all sense if reality. The first 3/4 of the book was great and as was the narrator.

    Contrived and manipulative tale

    I'm a big fan of domestic thrillers, and I chose this book based on its excellent reviews. From the beginning, there was something vaguely yucky about the story. My negative feelings increased the more I listened. By the end, I concluded that the whole point was for the author to create a tale in which she could insert a major twist, with no consideration to character development or psychological realism. I'll be adding this novel to my list of "worst books that I actually finished."
