Blog Tour / Stranger Child by Rachel Abbott

From the author of number one bestseller, Sleep Tight.

One Dark Secret. One act of revenge.

When Emma Joseph met her husband David, he was a man shattered by grief. His first wife had been killed outright when her car veered off the road. Just as tragically, their six-year-old daughter mysteriously vanished from the scene of the accident.

Now, six years later, Emma believes the painful years are behind them. She and David have built a new life together and have a beautiful baby son, Ollie.
Then a stranger walks into their lives, and their world tilts on its axis.
Emma’s life no longer feels secure. Does she know what really happened all those years ago? And why does she feel so frightened for herself and for her baby?

When a desperate Emma reaches out to her old friend DCI Tom Douglas for help, she puts all their lives in jeopardy. Before long, a web of deceit is revealed that shocks both Emma and Tom to the core.

They say you should never trust a stranger. Maybe they’re right.

My Review

What I loved about this book...
I loved this book!  Rachel Abbott is an new author to me and from reading the description (above) I was so excited to get reading it as soon as possible.  What I loved the most about this book was the plot.  There are a few 'curve balls' in this story which definitely kept me on my toes.  I really could not put this down, so much so that I starting reading one evening and eventually had to force myself to put it down needing sleep but picked it up as soon as woke up again in the morning because I could not wait to finish the story.    I really can't wait to pick up more books by this author.  I have Sleep Tight on my TBR and I can't wait to get to that sooner rather than later!

About the Author
From Goodreads

I lived most of life in the north of England, and worked for many years as the managing director of an interactive media company. I wrote every day - everything from creative proposals to user manuals - but most exciting of all was writing interactive dramas - including for the Cluedo (Clue in the US) interactive games. I was fortunate enough to sell my company in 2000 and we moved to Italy where we bought and restored an old country house.

My first novel Only the Innocent is about the cold-blooded execution of a well respected man, and as the story develops it becomes clear that sometimes murder can, perhaps, be justified. Only the Innocent was launched in November 2011 and reached the #1 spot on Amazon UK in mid February - and stayed there for four weeks.

I am now lucky enough to be able to write full time, and details of my books can be found at my website.
