Book Review and Blog Tour For “Baby Dear” By Linda Huber
Caro and Jeff Horne seem to have it all until they learn that Jeff is infertile. Caro married Jeff because her biggest wish was to be a mother, and he had the means to give their children a better life than she’d had. Jeff, who is besotted with Caro, is terrified he will lose her now they can’t have a baby.
Across town, Sharon is eight months pregnant and unsure if she really wants to be a mother. Soon her world will collide with Jeff’s. He wants to keep Caro happy and decides that getting a baby is the only way.
Then Caro is accidently drawn into an underworld of drugs…
Meanwhile, Jeff is increasingly desperate to find a baby – but what length’s is he prepared to go to?
Is Sharon in danger, and will Caro ever have the family she’s always dreamed of?
Linda grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, but went to work in Switzerland for a year aged twenty-two, and has lived there ever since. Her day jobs have included working as a physiotherapist in hospitals and schools for handicapped children, and teaching English in a medieval castle. Not to mention several years spent as a full-time mum to two boys, a rescue dog, and a large collection of goldfish and guinea pigs.
Her writing career began in the nineties, when she had over fifty feel-good short stories published in women’s magazines. Several years later, she discovered the love of her writing life – psychological suspense fiction. Her first novel was published in 2013, and was followed by four others. She has also published a charity collection of feel-good short stories.
After spending large chunks of the current decade moving house, Linda has now settled in a beautiful flat on the banks of Lake Constance in north-east Switzerland, and is working on another suspense novel.
I was shocked at how good this book was. I found myself trying to read it as fast as I could. I thought the characters were so well written, and relate-able. I could imagine being friends with Julie. The twists and turns in this book were so well placed within the story, that it makes it so unpredictable, you will think you have it figured out, but then you’re proven wrong, and its brilliant.
I love Thrillers, and read them weekly, and I do have to say, this is one of the better ones that I have read! I look forward to reading more Linda Huber books, and I believe that many of you will too.
Thanks to Bloodhound Books and Linda Huber for allowing me to join in on, and kick off this Blog Tour. This is a book that will stick with me, and one I am so glad I got to read! Bloody Fantastic!
