I am thrilled to be sharing my review today of one of my March recommended #hotbooks Trust Me by T.M. Logan. Many thanks to Zaffre for my review copy and to tour organiser Tracy Fenton for my invite onto the tour.
TWO STRANGERS, A CHILD, AND A SPLIT SECOND CHOICE THAT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING . . .
Ellen was just trying to help a stranger. That was how it started: giving a few minutes respite to a flustered young mother sitting opposite her on the train. A few minutes holding her baby while the mother makes an urgent call. The weight of the child in her arms making Ellen’s heart ache for what she can never have.
Five minutes pass.
The train pulls into a station and Ellen is stunned to see the mother hurrying away down the platform, without looking back. Leaving her baby behind. Ellen is about to raise the alarm when she discovers a note in the baby’s bag, three desperate lines scrawled hastily on a piece of paper:
Please protect Mia
Don’t trust the police
Don’t trust anyone
Why would a mother abandon her child to a stranger? Ellen is about to discover that the baby in her arms might hold the key to an unspeakable crime. And doing the right thing might just cost her everything . . .
Trust me, T.M. Logan has smashed it out of the park again with Trust Me! He’s a great thriller writer who always manages to get me completely addicted to his books within a couple of pages but Trust Me really did deliver a hook that sucked me in, desperate to discover the reason a woman leaves her baby on a train in the care of a stranger…
Ellen was a wonderfully strong protagonist-a woman so maternal in her instincts that it seemed almost cruel that she had no children of her own. But that probably made her more protective of baby Mia when she is abandoned on her train whilst Ellen is holding her. I liked the way she thought outside the box, trusting no one, which seemed to go against her nature as such an amiable person! And I know how she felt as I hadn’t got a clue who the bad guys were here or why someone was so determined to find baby Mia…
The shocking moment Ellen realised that she had been left literally holding the baby packed a huge emotional punch that continued throughout Trust Me as T.M. Logan played with my sympathies. It’s one of those books that you just can’t physically put down once you’ve picked up, a thrill fest that delivers a gripping storyline and a brilliant twist. Loved it!
