Summary

A heart-stopping emotional thriller with a breathtaking twist from the best-selling author of The Happy Couple Samantha Hayes.

January 1992. A baby girl is left alone for a moment. Long enough for a mother to dash into a shop. Long enough for a child to be taken. 

Thirteen years later, solicitor Robert Knight's stepdaughter wins a place at a prestigious London school for the gifted. The only puzzle is his wife Erin's reaction. Why is she so reluctant to let Ruby go? Doesn't she want what's best for her? As Erin grows more evasive, Robert can't help but feel she has something to hide and when he stumbles on mysterious letters, he discovers she has been lying to him. Somewhere in his wife's past lies a secret; a shocking secret that threatens to destroy everything....

Thrilling and gripping, Blood Ties will make you ask what dark secrets lie behind your neighbours' closed doors. Perfect listening for anyone who loved The Wife Between Us, The Girl on the Train or Gone Girl.

long winded

I really had high hopes for this book. started off great then descended rapidly into unbeliebale storyline and weird behaviour. Robert being a first class lawyer handled the situation bizarrely especially when he took Ruby to Northampton. Dont want to give too much away. I was left feeling a tad confused about such a jumbled storyline. Such a shame

Good story but very slow

This was a good story with great characters but it was probably 4 hours longer than it needed to be. It was a slog to keep myself interested enough to finish the book.

Loved it!

This is the first time I've read/listened to a book from this author and I really enjoyed it. I liked the characters and the story which flowed brilliantly. I will definitely be seeking out other stories from this talented writer.
