Because of this, however, I found it not quite as compelling as it could have been and it often seemed as though there was something missing.

Lauren, desperate with fear, locks herself and her sons in the bathroom until the police arrive to investigate. In true jaqueline Wilson style it followed the story of two separate young girls one wealthy, one poor. I truly love this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves an exciting, dramatic and a bit of a sad book! Today her popular books for children have sold millions of copies and have been translated into more than thirty languages.Summary: A carefully-crafted and uncannily clever tale about a new mother's irrational (or perhaps not so irrational) panic for the safety of her two children. Looking back I'm thinking maybe I wasn't supposed to have any questions about the relationships, and the truths behind them, but the ending left me with unresolved answers and was very abrupt! Jo had her own reasons for investigating the case involving babies and she tried her best to help Lauren. When the two girls meet in unlikely circumstances, they find in each other something they've been missing all their lives.

I think that anyone should read this but remebr not to give up on it as you have to wait until the middle for much to happen. Luckily my memories of being a new mom are long gone, but no doubt reading this would bring them back😬 Also, I’d never heard of Crooked Lane Books until I found out one of my favorite authors has a new book coming out with them!

Little Darlings is her first novel, and has been optioned for screen by Free Range Films, the team behind the adaptation of My Cousin Rachel. But she knows what she saw: that night, in her hospital room, a woman tried to take her babies and replace them with her own…creatures. Funnily enough, I just started reading Once Upon a River, I’m only a short way in but think it’s great so far. A stunning debut and a uniquely creepy premise’ Annie Ward, author of Beautiful Bad You may also be interested in. So receiving this book for Christmas I had low expectations for Little Darlings, but it managed to surprise me and grab me.

The last couple of chapters were better than the beginning and middle however if I was asked if I would recommend it to a friend I would probably decline. Little Darlings book touches on more than a few themes covering motherhood, mental health issues, deception, and pain. It seems she is meant to be taken as a sympathetic and plucky detective, willing to see past the beauracracy of the police department and go the extra mile to track down criminals.I am not going to divulge any more of the plot as I don’t want to spoil it by giving too much away, however it’s safe to say that if you like a psychological thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end, then this is definitely a book for you.

The eventual climax is a heartbreaking ordeal which no mother wishes to experience and just when we think it’s over, Melanie Golding hits us with another twist and the story goes in a different direction. The line between certainty and belief; the ambiguity of what's real and what's not; the murky business of trying to establish the truth; all of these elements make this story eerie and incredibly tense. Parts of the book left me impatient for something significant to happen but instead of building up expectation, I got bored. However, since plot development is crucial to the story, I'll be keeping this review on the shorter and less detailed side of things so as not to give too much of anything away. Lauren is alone on the maternity ward with her new-born twins when a terrifying encounter in the middle of the night leaves her convinced someone is trying to steal her children.I am not great at horror myself (I can only dabble), so I can’t imagine how scary this one is to have creeped you out! It’s not a myth that I really focus on intentionally so I was assuming that It must be common knowledge, but maybe it is lesser known than I thought! Sunset is Danny’s legitimate daughter, but she hates the luxury lifestyle, the constant photoshoots. Sunset, dcéra (bývalého) rockera Dannyho Kilmana ktorého nezaujíma NIČ iné ako stratená sláva a popularita a Suzy, (bývalej) modelky, ktorá by ju najradšej vymenila. Little Darlings is her first novel, and has been optioned for screen by Free Range Films, the team behind the adaptation of My Cousin Rachel .
