Stolen - Tess Stimson


5 Stars!


You thought she was safe. You were wrong…

Alex knows her daughter would never wander off in a strange place. So when her three-year-old vanishes from an idyllic beach wedding, Alex immediately believes the worst.

The hunt for Lottie quickly becomes a world-wide search, but it’s not long before suspicion falls on her mother. Why wasn’t she watching Lottie? 

Alex knows she’s not perfect, but she loves her child. And with all eyes on her, Alex fears they’ll never uncover the truth unless she takes matters into her own hands.

Who took Lottie Martini? And will she ever come home?

Tess Stimson is the British author of ten novels, including top-ten bestseller The Adultery Club, and two non-fiction books, which between them have been translated into dozens of languages.

Her first "proper" job after graduating from St Hilda's College, Oxford (where she read English) was as a news trainee with ITN (Independent Television News). She reported and produced regional and world stories, travelling to hotspots and war-zones all over the globe.

In 2002, she was appointed Professor of Creative Writing at the University of South Florida and moved to the US. She now lives and works in Vermont with her husband, Erik, their three children, and (at the last count) two cats, three fish, one gerbil and a large number of bats in the attic.

This was such a good book! One of my biggest fears when my daughter was little was her being abducted! It was almost a phobia of mine.  So, I felt every one of Alexa's tears, sorrows, fears, and regrets. 

I want to say that I totally believed Alexa, and I did for most of the book. But I have to admit that even I started to doubt her. Although I did loved her and definitely felt for her. There was great character development all throughout the book. The other character I really liked was a reporter, Quinn (I started out hating her, but she redeemed herself). Doesn't everybody hate the reporters in the beginning? LOL

This was a very gut retching, sad and very real story. It was very well done. Kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting to read continuously till the end. 

Of course I am not going to give away the ending, but... WOW! OK, now you have to read it!

Something I always do when I love a book is look up the author and see what other books they have out. She has a couple other books out that I definitely going to check out.

I highly recommend this page turner that felt all too real for me!

I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from Rachel's Random Resources -  Thank You!!
