A Mother's Sacrifice by Gemma Metcalfe - Book Tour & Book Review
Today I am excited to be kicking off the blog tour for psychological thriller A Mother's Sacrifice and I'm thrilled to be sharing my review with you Publication Date: 9 March 2018 Publisher: HQ Digital
It was fate that she crossed my path. And that is why I chose her.
The day Louisa and James bring their newborn son home from the hospital marks a new beginning for all of them. To hold their child in their arms, makes all the stress and trauma of fertility treatment worth it. Little Cory is theirs and theirs alone. Or so they think
After her mother’s suicide when she was a child, Louisa’s life took an even darker turn. But meeting James changed everything. She can trust him to protect her, and to never leave her. Even if deep down, she worries that she has never told him the full truth about her past, or the truth about their baby.
But someone knows all her secrets and that person is watching and waiting, with a twisted game that will try to take everything Louisa holds dear.
From the dramatic birth scene at the beginning to the dramatic unpredictable ending this was one rollercoaster of a book!
Even before Louisa and James bring home their longed for son something was not right - Louisa receives a congratulations card that rocks her world - but who it's from and why it stuns her is the mystery that kept me turning the pages.
Louisa is an anxious parent and she's suffered with depression in the past - not surprising given that she discovered her mother's suicide when she was little. But was she too anxious and too paranoid, especially when she believes someone wants to steal her baby.
So she's had a bad start in life but she feels that having her son is a new beginning for her and is desperate to be a good mother and prove to James that she can be, despite all she's been through, or because of it.
But someone is watching her and this part I found really creepy, they were outside her house.
There are hints of something else that happened in Louisa's past.
I was totally gripped by the story from start to finish, lots of surprises and twists, I was constantly changing my mind about people, I distrusted everyone from her husband, to her friends and her awful mother in law! The going back to Louisa's past in snippets gave me an insight into Louisa's mind and how she was like she was. There was just enough information to keep me reading and wanting to learn more.
Fabulous writing, superb plot, sympathetic and well drawn characters, this is a complex and brilliant psychological thriller.
