The Escape – C.L. Taylor ★★★★★

Blurb; Look after your daughter’s things. And your daughter…”

When a stranger asks Jo Blackmore for a lift she says yes, then swiftly wishes she hadn’t.

The stranger knows Jo’s name, she knows her husband Max and she’s got a glove belonging to Jo’s two year old daughter Elise.

What begins with a subtle threat swiftly turns into a nightmare as the police, social services and even Jo’s own husband turn against her.

No one believes that Elise is in danger. But Jo knows there’s only one way to keep her child safe – RUN.

My Review; Wow. Brilliant. I was hooked. A well deserved five stars. Highly recommend to you all. I won’t forget this story in a rush! I kept forgetting to breathe towards the end it was that intense. I did not expect that outcome at all! It’s wierd how everything can link together even if you’re far from home.

From the beginning you can tell Jo has some personal issues to deal with and live with, her character doesn’t have much confidence. I felt sorry for Jo as she was being framed and used yet not everyone believed her. I personally think she’s a good mother and it wasn’t her fault she’s got agoraphobia, but I must say she did handle things the wrong way.

I loved the cliffhanger of an ending… Cheeky! Leaving the reader to finish the story for themselves. I also loved the cover. A cleverly written story that makes the reader think and keeps them on the edge of their toes!
