I will do anything to protect my daughter. She’s all I’ve ever wanted and all I really have, but the moment I opened that letter and accepted the gift inside, I walked us right into a dangerous trap.
I know I should have got her to tell me who she’s been talking to on the phone late at night, and where she was the day I went to pick her up from school and couldn’t find her, but she’s not spoken a word since she discovered a secret hidden in our new home.
And now she’s missing…
From the very first page of Single Mother, I knew that we wouldn’t be able to trust most of the characters. Perhaps even those we least suspect could be betraying Mel, our protagonist. As she takes each step forward, hoping to provide a home and safety for her daughter Kate, we dare not look away.
I was rooting for Mel and Kate throughout the book, even as I wondered about those who were nearest and dearest to her. Could those she had known and trusted for years turn out to betray her?
Who is the quiet woman sitting in the window, and why doesn’t she speak? Does she dare trust Tom, the handyman who is helping her renovate the hotel she inherited? And who left her that gift? What was the hidden agenda behind it all?
Definitely a page turner that earned 4.5 stars.
