My review of The Mother’s Fault by Nicole Trope

Nicole does it again – Another thrilling story you just have to keep reading

This is the 3rd Nicole Trope book I have read since being approved on NetGalley and is as good as the previous books.

Nicole has this knack of writing as the character just how you would imagine the character to be thinking.

When she writes as 8 year old Riley you are in the mind of an 8 year old, when she writes as a worried mother you become that worried mother, when she writes as the mentally unstable protagonist you are in the mind of that person.

Although you already know what is going to happen if you have already read the description of The Mother’s Fault, it doesn’t occur until well in to the book as Nicole gives you time to really get in to every character.

When we do get there the tension builds up to a thrilling end which you will only know about if you read the book…

I’m now going through all Nicole’s back catalogue as a result of the 2 books I gratefully received from NetGalley

Publishers Description of The Mother’s Fault by Nicole Trope

I am cooking spaghetti, his favourite, while he plays in the garden. But when I look up, he’s gone. I call the police, my hands shaking so much that I hit the wrong digits twice. ‘My son is missing.’

When the police turn up, I’m trapped in the web of my lies.

I have hidden the truth from eight-year-old Riley, my little boy who loves climbing trees and always has scraped knees. I have hidden my secret from everyone.

Riley knows his father is dead but he has no idea why. He doesn’t know his dad’s real name, and there are no pictures in the house. Not a single person knows what happened eight years ago.

I love my son more than anything but the truth is, I have always feared for him. When the first gift arrived in our mailbox, wrapped in blue paper with silver stars, I realised I was right to be afraid.

Now, I can see the question in the detectives’ eyes. Am I a mother with a missing child or a mother with a lot to hide? I need them to save my son – but how much can I tell them without losing him forever?

A totally gripping psychological thriller that will get your pulse racing like crazy as it hits you with twist after twist after twist! If you loved The Wife Between Us or The Girl on the Train you’ll be utterly glued to this page-turner.
