I have something for you. When Quinn Cruz receives that cryptic text message from her older sister Nora, she doesn’t think much of it.

Nora’s “something” is more shocking than Quinn could have ever imagined: a little girl, cowering, wide-eyed, and tight-lipped. Nora hands her over to Quinn with instructions to keep her safe, and not to utter a word about the child to anyone.

While Quinn struggles to honor her sister’s desperate request and care for the lost, scared Lucy, she fears that Nora may have gotten involved in something way over her head—something that will threaten them all.


My Review:

This book was a good read, but it didn’t live up to my expectations somehow. I had read a lot about it, and perhaps I had assumed it would be a ball hit out of the ball park.

I felt at times that it was a little too “cryptic.” That the parts about the mother were too involved and lengthy. I felt that the book could have been edited a bit more concisely.

About The Author:

Nicole Baart is the mother of four children from four different countries. The cofounder of a non-profit organization, One Body One Hope, she lives in a small town in Iowa.


I was given a copy of this book for my honest review.

  1. Thanks for your review Brenda. I like to see what you are reading, and it really helps to hear what you have to say about the book, before I would consider reading it. I do love mysteries and suspense, as you do, and happy that this has become part of your blog..Bonnie in VERY cold WI.

  2. Enjoy your book reviews. As an avid reader, I will read a book if someone says it’s really good. Think I’ll pass on this one though. Thanks and have a great weekend.
