It was fate that she crossed my path. And that is why I chose her.
The day Louisa and James bring their newborn son home from the hospital marks a new beginning for all of them. To hold their child in their arms, makes all the stress and trauma of fertility treatment worth it. Little Cory is theirs and theirs alone. Or so they think…
After her mother’s suicide when she was a child, Louisa’s life took an even darker turn. But meeting James changed everything. She can trust him to protect her, and to never leave her. Even if deep down, she worries that she has never told him the full truth about her past, or the truth about their baby.
But someone knows all her secrets – and that person is watching and waiting, with a twisted game that will try to take everything Louisa holds dear.
After reading Gemma Metcalfe’s debut, ‘Trust Me’, I had high expectations and I wasn’t let down.
Beautifully written and full of twists that leave the reader wondering just how much was fact and how much was taking place in Louisa’s mind. Louisa is facing what could be explained with a diagnosis of Post Natal Psychosis. Having undergone fertility treatment Louisa has been left with a lot of unanswered questions about her pregnancy and, subsequently, her son. Someone is very interested in her and Cody, her son, and this leaves her scared for her and her son’s lives, she is convinced that her son will be kidnapped. Many strange things are taking place but no one believes her when she tries to explain the various things that have taken place.
As the story progresses Louisa’s past is transpiring. Not only had she lost her mother to suicide but she had other ‘issues’ that affected her emotional wellbeing with the result being that Louisa is a character that has you, the reader, starting to second guess everyone and everything that is taking place.
Gemma Metcalfe has, once again, taken what could be an exceptionally creative approach to the topic at hand and created something exceptionally beautiful.
