*BLOG TOUR* The Family at No. 12 – Anita Waller ★★★★★

Blurb; When Janette answers the door to a potential customer looking to board his dog, she never imagines he has nefarious plans.

But minutes later he’s dead and in her cellar.

Weeks later she realises she’s pregnant.

And so she becomes Mother and the baby Child, and a hidden life begins.

But all secrets come out eventually . .

My Review; I was hooked from the first page. Blown away. Wow. What a sick, twisted, dark and disturbing read the first half of this was. I really felt for the ‘child’. As a mother of 3 I would never let that happen to any child. Utterly heartbreaking. The story is split into 3 books and we see how the child progresses with her life. I can’t say too much without some sort of spoiler but you will devour this read, I did. It’s one that will be hard to forget. Would recommend to all however, it does contain a rape though so trigger warning for that. A well deserved five stars from me. This book made me feel a whole range of emotions. Brilliantly written.
