Thank you to Zaffre Books and Readers First for a copy of Trust Me by T M Logan. This is the first book I’ve read by T M Logan although I do have some of his previous books on my Kindle writing to be read.
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 . . .
Having read the opening chapters on Readers First last month, I was thrilled to receive a copy to be able to continue the story. I raced through this book, helped by having a midweek day off and staying up past my bedtime.
The book is called Trust Me and very quickly I didn’t feel I could trust anyone. We are slowly introduced to the main characters as little pieces of information are drip fed to the reader. The story is full of intrigue and fear. Can Ellen protect Mia from evil? I enjoyed the pace of the story and found myself unable to put it down.
This is a non spoiler review, so I’m not going to ruin the story for you. To find out more about Ellen’s challenge, grab a copy for yourself and enjoy the entertaining drama.
