I gave them my baby… but can I trust them?Giving away my child is the hardest decision I have ever had to make. But when I move into the Thorpes’ stunning home so they can support me through the pregnancy, it seems like they are everything I could have hoped for. They cook me delicious, healthy meals and make sure I’m getting the best medical care. They never question my background, or why I am giving them my child.But before long, I begin to wonder if something is very wrong with the Thorpes. I try to ignore how Travis lets his hand linger on mine for a little too long, and how Marcia comes to check on me during the night. I tell myself that when they control and monitor my movements, it’s just because they care.Keeping my baby safe and making sure they are going to the perfect family means everything to me. But when a threatening note turns up outside my door and I begin to unravel the Thorpes’ secrets, I realise I may not make it out of here alive.After everything I’ve been through, I’m not going to give up without a fight. And I’ll do anything to keep my baby safe…
My heart bleeds each and every time when I read stories about people being desperate for a child. Either they cannot conceive and they have to deal with the disappointment each month or something goes wrong during the pregnancy and they have to work their way through one more loss.
Some people give up completely. Others seek help.
Marcia has almost given up hope when she realises angels do exist and one of them is called Grace. They are both determined. Marcia wants to become a mother, Grace wants to give a couple the ultimate gift. Marcie is looking for a selfless person, Grace is looking for the perfect parents. It seems like they have both found what they are looking for.
End of story, right? They all live happily ever after, right? Well, no.
This is already heavy stuff, but you ain’t see nothing yet. Find out some heart breaking backstories.
I wonder whether you will follow in my steps: never suspecting the baddie, being suspicious of the innocent. In my opinion, when an author can achieve this, they have written a wonderful book.
The prologue is a grabbed-me-by-the-throat one. It’s a chapter that is meant to suck you into the story and I will tell you, it worked like a Dyson on me. 😊
I can tell you this: life gave Grace a whole lot of lemons. Will she be able to make lemonade out of them?
I loved this story. There was not a lot that could drag me away from it, but we all have to eat sometimes, don’t we? 😉 5 stars.
