Editorial Reviews

Review

"Perfect balance of suspense, action and heart-racing tension.  It draws you in from the first well-written paragraph."  Richard Hanners, Hungry Horse News.

"A tense thriller that taps into every mother's worst fear."  D. Burke, author.

"The author was familiar enough with her settings and characters to create a unique story.  She even accomplished the "le Carre Effect (increasing the plot tension as the book nears its climax such that the reader is obsessed with finishing the book.)" T. Hughes, Amazon Reviewer.

"The  concept my be fairly simple, but the execution is awesome.  Without giving away the plot, suffice it to say, the villain of this take is one of the spookiest and most depraved you will ever encounter."  Dixon Rice, author of The Assassins Club.

"A beautifully written novel that makes characters real and believable.  The author's excellent storytelling abilities, makes the experience absolutely fascinating." Angela Townsend, author of Angus McBain. 

From the Author

Writers are told to write about what you know.  Sounds easy enough, except I had not traveled the world or had a interesting job or run a brothel or committed murder.  What could I possibly know that would appeal to readers?  Well, I know about babies and pregnancy.  I gave birth to four babies in five years.  Okay, I thought, how can I make that into a story readers would enjoy?  They like suspense.  Now, I had two ideas - babies and suspense. What else?  I know about Seattle and Montana.  Now, I had two settings.

The idea was born.

More About the Author

Marie Martin lives in a fertile valley at the base of the Rocky Mountains where laughter comes easy, love easier. Marie and her siblings were raised on ten acres of clump grass and bull pine trees.

They roamed nearby creeks, woods, and the cemetery. In her blog, Shady Nook, you may read stories of her childhood growing up in a rural area filled with unique people and a landscape known as the Big Sky County.

Marie is the mother of four grown children and now shares her life with a cocker spaniel by the name of Katie Lou.

What starts out as four pregnant women becoming friends at the OB/GYN office they all went to, quickly becomes murder, mahem and who can you trust.
This is a real heart stopping clever take on who can be trusted. All of these women have no men in their lives at the moment, one is married, but her
husband is thousands of miles away on a ship. The other three are single ladies who are glad to be pregnant, but are also okay with being single.
When you can't trust the very people who should be able to protect you, what do you do? One of the ladies relies on a long ago loves family member.
Hang on folks, this is a page turner and a really great story.
Ms. Martin is a new to me author, I will be wanting more like this from her and soon....what a great read.

This book complimentary from the Author.

A complimentary copy of this book was sent for me to review on my kindle.
Four women become friends through their pregnancies by meeting at the baby clinic.
Its not long before giving birth that something seems wrong as one or two of the mothers become anxious and wary. What is it that concerns them? Why does one of them go on the run after giving birth? Is there a killer out there? What are they after? A well written story full of suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat, a good twist at the end that works well. Motherhood will never seem the same again!!

I read this book because I got it free on my Kindle. I like to finish a book that I start, it was hard with this one but I trudged through. The story is highly unlikely, predictable, and just plain weird with one of the characters constantly taking out loud to her dead cat. Don't waste your time on this one, it made my brain a little mushy.

I rarely stop reading before finishing a book...I keep hoping the author will redeem herself/himself, but I had to make an exception in this case. The story was so-so, but the writing was so awkward, I could not make myself pick this book back up. I find it very hard to understand the glowing reviews...perhaps family and friends?

Flat characterization of killer and no mystery, just wait till he finds her cheap violence and suspense, with newborn babies. Pointless and dull.

This fast paced story takes many unpredictable twists and turns, and will keep the reader intrigued throughout the book. It contains the perfect balance of mystery, action and heart racing tension. A beautifully written novel that makes characters real and believable. The author's excellent storytelling abilities, makes the experience absolutely fascinating!

I wish I could have given this truly awful book zero stars! While the story idea was good, the writing was terrible. The dialog was unrealistic, even between friends.

I got this book as a 'free' Amazon purchase - and STILL paid too much!

I really enjoyed the story in this book but it was not without its flaws. Some of the characters needed more developing and I found some of the dialogue less than believeable. I think the story was strong and the author did a good job of describing the mind of a deranged individual. Over all, it was a good read and not your typical storyline.
