Summary

How far would you go to keep your family safe?

Angie Watts had the perfect ordinary family. A new home. A beloved husband. Three adored children.

But Angie’s happy life is shattered when her son Liam falls in with the wrong crowd. And when her son’s bad choices lead to the murder of her husband, it’s up to Angie to hold what’s left of her family together.

Her son is missing. Her daughter is looking for help in dangerous places. And Angie is fighting just to keep a roof over their heads.

But Angie is a mother. And a mother does anything to protect her children - even when the world is falling apart....

Boring!! No Story

I am on chapter 22 and I am sending it back! I dont know why it is in the 'Thriller' genre! The write up sounds like it could have been good when it says about the missing son in with the wrong crowd and the murder of her husband.

Well the husband was already dead when the book started, you heard what happened in the prologue and the son is already missing and at the moment has no part in the book, just the mum wondering where he is! No exciting storyline about who the son was involved with etc.

Which leaves the Mum Angela and the 2 kids she has left so now we just have a story (hardly) about Angela being skint and struggling for money. She cant pay her rent and gets kicked out of her house, and basically that has been it so far apart from Angela's depressing whingeing on about only having 25.00 to get the food shopping (even though she brought wine), about the sky sports being cancelled, her daughters mobile phone having to be cancelled, feeding the kids egg in toast, having to make a birthday cake instead of buying one....and it goes on...and on. If there was a book category for 'Boring, Dull and I would rather watch paint dry' this book would be top rated in that category but Thriller......no, taking a vow of silence, being put into isolation and having no contact with another human would be more thrilling than this!
