Four books from Paperbackswap’s Box-of-Books feature this week:
And one review book that I requested from Blogging for Books … because I have absolutely NO SELF-CONTROL when I say I’m not taking on any review books this year (and I’ve already committed to about 5 in the next few months…… ugh!!)
Claudia Morgan-Brown finally has it all. Pregnant with a much-wanted first baby, she has a happy family of two young stepsons and a loving husband. When Claudia hires Zoe to help her around the house in anticipation of the baby’s arrival, it seems like the answer to her prayers. But despite Zoe’s glowing recommendations and instant rapport with the children, there’s something about her that Claudia cannot trust.
Moreover, there has been a series of violent attacks on pregnant women in the area, and Claudia becomes acutely aware of her vulnerability. With her husband out of town for work, who will be there to protect her? And why does she still feel so unsettled about Zoe? Realizing appearances can be deceiving even in a seemingly perfect world, Claudia digs deeper into Zoe’s blurry past and begins to wonder – how far would someone go to have a child of her own?
