Her Sister's Child by Alison James
Genres: Psychological Thriller
She rolls over and reaches for her instinctively: her baby. Her hand hits air and flaps redundantly. She stumbles out of bed and switches on the light. But this only confirms it. The baby is gone. Someone has taken her.
Sixteen years ago, Lizzie Armitage woke to find her newborn baby gone. Just days later, Lizzie was dead.
Her sister Paula swore she would do everything she could to find the child. If she hadn’t promised to keep Lizzie's pregnancy secret, maybe the baby wouldn’t have disappeared. And maybe Lizzie would still be alive. But, in nearly a decade, Paula’s never found any trace. Until now…
When Paula bumps into an old friend from the past, she realises she wasn’t the only one who knew about her sister’s child. Someone knows what happened that day. Someone knows where Lizzie’s baby went.
But can Paula find out the truth before another family is ripped apart?

The idea behind this book sounds so intriguing but for whatever reason I struggled with it. I wanted to love it and while I didn’t hate it, the book just didn’t do it for me. The ending was rushed and felt ingenuine.
All of the characters are well written although I did have some issues with Johnny. I got more into the book in the middle than at the beginning. while I am normally alright with different timelines in a book and switching between them with the number of characters here I wasn’t crazy with that.

A very unique scenario – it also sounds like one that will pull on my heartstrings.

This so sounds like my kind of read and one that will keep me reading until I am finished.
Thanks for the review. I like reading reviews that are less than 5 star, because I realize that not everyone loves the typical books. This book does sound intriguing, and I’ve put it on my reading list.
