Stolen by Tess Stimson

I’m delighted to be part of the tour today for this riveting book. Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources and Avon Books for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

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?

My Review:

Wow, this book is literally jaw-dropping. I absolutely did not see the twists and turns in this story coming at all.

Lottie is taken in broad daylight, at a wedding with over a hundred guests. I had no idea or suspicion of who might have been responsible or why. What follows is a huge search for Lottie, but it seems like they will never find her, there doesn’t seem to be anything to go on.

There are many twists in this book, and just when you feel like you might have an idea of who took her, the plot turns again, and we are none the wiser.

I sat for hours reading this book, unable to tear myself away. I just had to find out what had happened to her. The intricately and cleverly woven plot had me hooked, and didn’t give up its secrets until almost the very end. There are quite a few shocks along the way.

A fast-paced and dramatic story, this is a hard one to put down. Excellent and compelling read.

My Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.
