#Review of The Secret Mother by Shalini Boland @ShaliniBoland @bookouture

Today I am delighted to be taking part in the blog blitz for The Secret Mother by Shalini Boland!!


‘Are you my mummy?’

Tessa Markham comes home to find a little boy in her kitchen. He thinks she’s his mother. But Tessa doesn’t have any children.

Not anymore.

She doesn’t know who the child is or how he got there.

After contacting the police, Tessa comes under suspicion for snatching the boy. She must fight to prove her innocence. But how can she convince everyone she’s not guilty when even those closest to her are questioning the truth? And when Tessa doesn’t even trust herself…

A chilling, unputdownable thriller with a dark twist that will take your breath away and make you wonder if you can ever trust anyone again. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, Girl on the Train and The Sister.



Oh my goodness I did not know where to put myself after reading this book!!  My emotions were all over the place – it really is an absolutely excellent book and I loved every page and I was hooked right from the start.

The whole book completely gripped me, the characters were brilliant and the plot was so well planned it made the book one I most certainly did not want to put down.  This has to be one of the best reads of the year for me, I was completely enthralled – no hesitation in giving the book 5 stars – so highly recommended – you really need to get a copy of this book!!!
