Welcome to my spot on the blog tour for Stolen by Tess Stimson. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on the tour. Read on for more info and my review.
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 has created a novel that will have you constantly turning in different directions. The red herrings in Stolen took me by surprise, and kept me whole-heartedly invested.
From the begging to the riveting finale, you will be hooked. I couldn’t put this down and read it all in a day. The atmosphere of dread is heavy throughout the novel, ans as a reader, you just need to hold on tight for the ride.
The disappearance of a child is heartbreaking but to read the judgement of Alexa’s parenting was awful, too. Life doesn’t work the way we wish it did, and no body is perfect. That part alone created a pit in my stomach and a sense of empathy for Alexa.
The twists and turns are incredible. I haven’t read a story this good in a long time. While the subject matter is definitely not light hearted, this is an edge-of-your-seat ride, that I highly recommend.
Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for the review copy and the opportunity to honestly review this book on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
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.
