Rea Frey is a master at domestic suspense! This one may be the best one yet!
Rebecca Gray has had a time of it. Diagnosed in her twenties with an eye disease that will leave her totally blind, every day she can see a little less. Shadows, outlines, and soon there will be total darkness. To make matters worse, her husband is killed in an accident while she is pregnant with their son, Jackson.
Bec moves to the suburbs alone. In a home meant to be shared with her husband and son. She makes friends with a few other moms but suffers almost debilitating fear and anxiety over her ability to take care of and protect her son. Having lost her husband, she isn’t taking any chances with her only child.
But life in the burbs isn’t as idyllic as it sounds. And Bec finds this out in the most painful of ways. One day at the park she passes out. Her friends bring her to their house and talk to her about getting rest and taking better care of herself. With the aid of a friend’s sleeping pills, she gets some rest and wakes up only to find that the child in her crib is not Jackson.
The police, as well as her friends, think she may be confused and still grieving her husband. Tiny babies all look alike. Except for their mothers. Mothers know their baby’s smell, touch, and every breath. And Bec knows this is not her child.
With help from a past love, she will move mountains to find out who took her child and who is this baby in the crib? And the ending will leave you speechless!
I have to say that as I was reading this I am recovering from my 4th eye surgery, so this was already a scary time for me. Reading this had me jumping at every noise! And my husband wondering if I was ever coming out of the bathtub!
Another Great Job!
