"Who is my real Daddy"
The Stolen Child - Sanjida Kay

This was an excellent psychological thriller that kept me wanting to know more. I was listening to the audiobook and the narration by Helen Johns was excellent too. It is well paced and convincing, with good dialogue; the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that the police didn't seem to do much, nearly all the discoveries that led to the denouement, were made by Zoe Morley, the Mum, which seemed just a little too coincidental.


Zoe and Ollie had adopted baby Evie from a drug addicted young mother. And, as sometimes happens in such cases, several years later, they were able to have a child of their own, who they named Ben. They are content with their young family and life is good. Then Zoe discovers that seven-year-old Evie, has been receiving gifts and cards signed 'Your loving Daddy'. He declares his undying love for Evie and promises to come and rescue her from her 'fake parents'. As Evie struggles to come to terms with the fact that she is adopted and her brother, Ben, is not, the thought of having one of her 'real' parents back becomes more and more tantalising.


I thought early on that I knew who Evie's father was, but I'm glad to say there were many more surprises and possible culprits along the way and the ending managed to take me by surprise.

Set in Yorkshire, in and around the Ilkley Moors, this novel has a brooding atmosphere and I loved that Zoe uses this to inspire her art.


I am looking forward to reading Sanjida Kay's earlier novel, Bone to Bone, which also seems to have been well received.

Recommended, and the audio is good too.

Review : DESERVING IT by Angela Quarles
Deserving It: A Romantic Comedy (Stolen Moments Book 3) - Angela Quarles

DESERVING IT by Angela Quarles is book Three in the "Stolen Moments" series. This is the story of Conor and Claire. I have read the previous books, but feel this can easily be a standalone book. Conor and Claire are left stranded after their flight gets canceled due to weather. Claire has always had a burning crush on Conor but knows it won't be going anywhere. But the bad weather has giving them both a change to get to know one another better and it set off their desire for each other too.
Really enjoyed this book and their story.

This was an enjoyable read.
Stolen by the Alien (Chosen by the Alien Book 2) - Ally Enne

The story had a good flow, the world-building interesting.


It was "alien" enough to not feel like a green coloured human society.


The romance part was a bit too much "drawn/mated" themed for my taste. But it worked out in the end.

Stolen Hearts (Stolen Hearts) by Sasha L. Miller
Stolen Hearts - Sasha L. Miller

Нудная середина и нудный конец. Я ожидала больше, чем "она его за муки полюбила, а он ее за состраданье к ним".


The "comfort" bit of hurt/comfort was overdone, trying to compensate for falling in love, I guess. Once Callisto's new charm was in place to stabilize his condition, everything slowed down to a crawl.
