Book Review – Woman On The Edge

Woman On The Edge by Samantha M. Bailey
Genre: Thriller

Synopsis:

A moment on the platform changes two lives for ever. But nothing is as it seems…

‘Take my baby.’

In a split second, Morgan’s life changes for ever. A stranger hands her a baby, then jumps in front of a train.

Morgan has never seen the woman before and she can’t understand what would cause a person to give away her child and take her own life.

When the police question Morgan, she discovers none of the witnesses can corroborate her version of events. And when they learn Morgan longs for a baby of her own, she becomes a suspect.

To prove her innocence, Morgan frantically tries to retrace the last days of the woman’s life. She begins to understand that Nicole Markham believed she and her baby were in danger. Now Morgan might be in danger, too.

Was Nicole a new mother struggling with paranoia?

Or is something much darker going on?

Thoughts:

I was fortunate to receive this ebook ARC through NetGalley. The book is set to be published on March 3, 2020.

I really enjoyed how Morgan and Nicole’s story was woven together. Morgan’s chapters were present day where she is trying to figure out why all fingers were pointing to her doing something sinister to Nicole. Nicole’s chapters took the reader from the time she was about to give birth up to the point of meeting Morgan on the platform at the train station. The story was fast paced and I like that when reading this type of genre. The only thing I thought fell short for me was that I was pretty much able to figure out who was ultimately responsible for Nicole’s demise before the end of the book.

All in all, I was happy with this story and gave it 4/5 stars.
