I hesitated on this choice because of the title, thinking it would be another predictable story about Surrogacy gone wrong. Well I was the one who was wrong, dead wrong. This book HAD me, yes a 'gripping psychological thriller' indeed. Right after finishing it, I went to Amazon to search for Louise Jensen books. She has the ability to write stories with suspense and shock value, while completely getting rid of predictability. Not formulaic at all, I knew these people, the characters, and could not wait to find out what happened. The decisions and dilemmas they faced seemed universal and relatable, but still so unique.
The audiobook was enjoyable too. I usually do the whisper sync thing so I can switch back and forth between listening and reading. I was so happy I had it for this one so I could listen even when I was too busy to hold the book!
This is the third book of Louise Jensen’s I have read and they just get better and better.
The author takes very flawed and often psychologically damaged characters that are realistic and ones that the reader can connect to. She writes a plot line that is captivating, at times riveting, in which she places her characters so well that all the pieces fall easily into place. Except those twists and turns she throws that throw her characters for a loop and her endings that are unexpected.
This novel kept me reading from beginning to end. I was glued to the storyline, to the past and present presentation of each character, and to the many circumstances that occurred that I did not expect. To top it off, the conclusion of this novel is one you won’t fully see coming, just as most of the events that occurred throughout the novel.
For lovers of mysteries and psychological thrillers or who like a good read, “The Surrogate” is for you.
Kat is thrilled to find Lisa has conceived and is impatiently counting weeks until baby makes 3 and a happy, loving, future will be theirs. But the past kinda complicates that, and suddenly the present isn't working out too well either.
I loved this story, and Louise Jensen kept me at my kindle almost non stop. This's the second one I've read of hers, and looking forward to the next.
Kat and Lisa were once as close as sisters. The secrets they share mean their trust is for life… Or is it?
Just when the couple’s dream seems within reach, Kat begins to suspect she’s being watched and Nick is telling her lies.
Are the cracks appearing in Kat’s perfect picture of the future all in her head, or should she be scared for the lives of herself and her family?
My Thoughts: From the very beginning of The Surrogate: A gripping psychological thriller with an incredible twist, I was worried about Kat and Nick’s plan to use her childhood friend Lisa as their surrogate. There were so many red flags for me, and I thought that Kat should have been more wary. There were the secrets and lies about what happened to Jake, Lisa’s twin; and then there was something between Lisa and a troubled boy Aaron that suggested some kind of conspiracy between them.
Was Lisa lying about being pregnant? Why did she keep demanding more money from Kat and Nick? Why does she keep Kat away from the doctor appointments?
Then there was Nick’s childhood friend Richard, who is cold and secretive, too. What is he hiding? Did he sabotage Kat and Nick’s attempted adoptions?
Kat’s fears grow along with her suspicions. Who, if anyone, can she trust? Can she even trust Nick, who seems to be lying about so many things? Is he having an affair?
When the answers to the questions are finally revealed, it might be too late for any of them. I couldn’t stop turning the pages, and I didn’t see the truth taking the shape that it did. What I had suspected turned into something completely different…and almost unbelievable. 4 stars.
But there are secrets (so many secrets) behind the friendship and will these secrets damage their friendship? The more you get into the book, the more you want to find out what all the secrets are and how they will come between this friendship.
