Title: Lost You
Author: Haylen Beck
Publisher: Crown Publishing Group
I’ve never read any of Stuart Neville’s books, but this book was absolutely amazing and mind blowing. I’ve actually become such a fan of thrillers lately. This book takes you on a emotional rollercoaster that will have you asking what’s going to happen next. Beck takes you into the lives of two women who fall into the dark world of motherhood, surrogacy, and a very shady agency. Libby longs for a baby, but her fertility issues are making that all impossible. She gets lost in the anticipation of receiving her baby and commits unspeakable acts to become the mother she always wanted. Anna is in desperate need of some money, and when she’s presented with the opportunity to make some money by becoming a surrogate she immediately jumps at the opportunity. Even though she has signed a contract….she can’t help but start having second thoughts….and her feelings start getting in the way. Throughout this story you will see a lot of going back and fourth, but it’s so essential to the story.
Libby is a single mother whose marriage didn’t work out. However, she has her little man Ethan by her side to make her happy. Life hasn’t been easy, but now that her novel is going to get published, Libby will embark on a new journey as a published writer. So she takes a mini trip with Ethan to celebrate. Even though she’s ‘s on this trip, libby is overly anxious and very protective of Ethan. Ethan, like every young child is curious and even though it was only a split second, he makes a mad dash for the elevator when Libby was distracted and before she has a chance to react…he vanished! The hotel security and police immediately begin a search for the boy and utilize their security surveillance system….and they come across something shocking. Libby is brought in and right before her eyes, she’s sees a woman….her…taking Ethan.
Beck did an amazing job keeping me at the edge of my seat. When i thought I finally figured something out, he goes and does a total plot twist on you. Fast paced and in your face. I promise this will not disappoint.
Huge thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I definitely will be getting a physical copy.
