Louise loves to hear from readers and writers and can be found at www.louisejensen.co.uk, where she regularly blogs flash fiction.
Having enjoyed 'The Gift' and 'The Sister' I was really excited about having another Louise Jensen to read. Kat and her husband Neil are childless and having had two adoptions from abroad fall through at the last minute, by chance meets with an old school friend Lisa who is willing to be a surrogate mother for them. However, all is far from what it seems, and there are more twists and turns than you could throw a corkscrew at. I Whispersynced this one, (well worth the extra couple of pounds) so 'read' it in double-time, which was just as well because when I wasn't reading it, my thoughts were preoccupied with this amazing story. Highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the suspense thriller genre.
