Synopsis/Blurb (Taken from Goodreads):
“Two strangers, a child, and a split second choice that will change everything . . .
Ellen was just trying to help a stranger. That was how it started: giving a few minutes respite to a flustered young mother sitting opposite her on the train. A few minutes holding her baby while the mother makes an urgent call. The weight of the child in her arms making Ellen’s heart ache for what she can never have.
Five minutes pass.
The train pulls into a station and Ellen is stunned to see the mother hurrying away down the platform, without looking back. Leaving her baby behind. Ellen is about to raise the alarm when she discovers a note in the baby’s bag, three desperate lines scrawled hastily on a piece of paper:
Please protect Mia
Don’t trust the police
Don’t trust anyone
Why would a mother abandon her child to a stranger? Ellen is about to discover that the baby in her arms might hold the key to an unspeakable crime. And doing the right thing might just cost her everything.”
Having read a couple of previous books by T. M. Logan I couldn’t wait to request it on NetGalley and when I was approved I couldn’t wait to get started. I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect but I loved it.
Trust Me is a fast paced and gripping book, with a well-executed plot that had me swiping through the pages on my Kindle until the very end. I did work out the ending but I wasn’t disappointed as there were plenty of twists that I didn’t see coming.
The book is told through multiple points of view, the main one being from Ellen the main protagonists. We don’t know who some of the points of views belong to at first but all is revealed at the end. I thought this worked very well in adding that little bit of extra suspense and mystery.
The characterisation was spot on for me. The characters felt believable and well developed. The main protagonists Ellen was definitely my favourite. You know from the very start that she is a character you know you will like. I liked Ellen’s character as she came across brave, caring and a character who can be resourceful and quick thinking thanks to her Navy background.
This was a truly addictive read and would recommend to anyone who is looking for an action packed, fast paced read. Trust Me is definitely my favourite book from T. M. Logan, and can’t wait to give his other books a go.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publishers Zaffre (Bonnier Books UK) for my eARC in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
