Book Review ~ Chosen Child, by Linda Huber @LindaHuber19


Available on Amazon UK and Amazon US

Ella longs for a child of her own, but a gruesome find during an adoption process deepens the cracks in her marriage. A family visit starts off a horrifying chain of events, and Ella can only hope she won’t lose the person she loves most of all. Amanda is expecting her second child when her husband vanishes. She is tortured by thoughts of violence and loss, but nothing prepares her for the shocking conclusion to the police investigation. And in the middle of it all, a little girl is looking for a home of her own with a ‘forever’ mummy and daddy… 

I started reading Chosen Child, the new psychological thriller from Linda Huber, with high expectations, as one of her previous books, The Cold, Cold Sea was unforgettable. I was not disappointed. Right from the start we are drawn into the routine lives of her characters and know something dreadful is bound to happen.

When it did I was taken completely by surprise – and couldn’t put the book down until I’d found out how the nightmare could ever be resolved. I particularly liked the Cornish setting, and Linda’s keen eye for the little details that keep the reader guessing.

Highly recommended.
