Woman On The Edge by Samantha M. Bailey @sbaileybooks @headlinepg @annecater

Book Description:

SHE GAVE YOU HER BABY… AND THEN SHE JUMPED.

Woman on the Edge begins with a shocking, tragic event and doesn’t stop there. An impressive debut that will keep you reading until the final twist’ Samantha Downing

‘Riveting, hold-your-breath suspense’ Heather Gudenkauf

A moment on the platform changes two lives for ever. But nothing is as it seems…

In a split second, Morgan’s life changes for ever. A stranger hands her a baby, then jumps in front of a train.

Morgan has never seen the woman before and she can’t understand what would cause a person to give away her child and take her own life.

When the police question Morgan, she discovers none of the witnesses can corroborate her version of events. And when they learn Morgan longs for a baby of her own, she becomes a suspect.

To prove her innocence, Morgan frantically tries to retrace the last days of the woman’s life. She begins to understand that Nicole Markham believed she and her baby were in danger. Now Morgan might be in danger, too.

Was Nicole a new mother struggling with paranoia?

Or is something much darker going on?

Pulse-pounding, heartrending, shocking, thrilling. This is a thriller you won’t stop thinking about.

My Thoughts:

The blurb for this book just screamed at me, “READ ME!”. I knew as soon as I read the blurb I had to discover for myself why a woman would hand over her baby to a complete stranger and then kill herself. It sure didn’t disappoint either.

The story flicks between Nicole, a high flying career woman in the weeks in the run up to her giving her baby away and Morgan, a totally unsuspecting stranger whose life is turned upside down.

Like Morgan, I was desperate for answers. As the police start looking into Morgan with suspicions turning on her, this made for a frantic read that I daren’t put down. I was interested in both these women, and their stories totally consumed me. I basically read it in two sittings as I couldn’t rest until I knew the outcome.

Woman On The Edge is a story that will have your heart racing whilst tearing through the pages. This is a book once started, you really won’t want to be disturbed. If so, it will be at that person’s peril. A white knuckled read if ever I’ve read one. The pacing, suspense, tension, ending, all of it ticked the boxes for me in this genre and would highly recommend it.

My thanks to Headline Books, NetGalley and Anne Cater for a readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
