Snap – Belinda Bauer ★★★★

Blurb; On a stifling summer’s day, eleven-year-old Jack and his two sisters sit in their broken-down car, waiting for their mother to come back and rescue them. Jack’s in charge, she said. I won’t be long.

But she doesn’t come back. She never comes back. And life as the children know it is changed for ever.

Three years later, mum-to-be Catherine wakes to find a knife beside her bed, and a note that says: I could have killed you.

Meanwhile Jack is still in charge – of his sisters, of supporting them all, of making sure nobody knows they’re alone in the house, and – quite suddenly – of finding out the truth about what happened to his mother.

But the truth can be a dangerous thing…

My Review; I had to read this one as I saw so many great reviews for it. It is a brilliant book, clever plenty of unexpected turns but there is one thing that has bugged me with this book and it’s the ending. It just seemed a bit too soon for me, a bit rushed. So much more could have been written and a sentencing seen. But maybe it could lead to a follow on? Who knows…

I felt so sorry for those poor kiddies Jack, and his little sisters. Jack had a lot of responsibility placed on him and he tried his best for his sisters. As for the police force and detective team they didn’t have a clue at all in this book and made several mistakes along the way. Interesting story for sure.

I awarded a fair four stars and would highly recommend. I will be looking into other books by this author in the future.
