All Tara longs for is her lost child to find her. But she should be careful what she wishes for . . .
Tara’s life is almost perfect. Her handsome husband Dino adores her. They have two beautiful children. Although money is tight, their marriage is happy.
But there’s something missing.
Tara can never forget the baby she was forced to give up for adoption all those years ago. The boy she called Ryan. She always wonders what happened to him.
Finally, a young man comes looking for Tara. He says he’s Ryan, her long-lost son.
His arrival will destroy everything in Tara’s carefully-constructed new life.
Because Tara has been keeping secrets from her husband and everyone around her. Secrets that Ryan’s appearance will force into the open — with horrifying consequences.
As a newcomer to Jane E. James’ work, I was pleasantly surprised by the depth and complexity of this psychological thriller. The author’s decision to switch between past and present was a masterful choice that kept me hooked from start to finish. It added to the suspense in a way that made the story feel more layered and interesting.
But what really stood out for me were the characters. Each one was expertly crafted, with unique personalities and motivations that made them feel like real people. I found myself invested in their lives and decisions, rooting for some and despising others.
Overall, I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good psychological thriller. It’s a well-written and gripping story that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. Don’t miss out on this one!
