Apple of My Eye by Claire Allan– When a mysterious note arrives for six months pregnant Dr Eliana Hughes, she begins to doubt every aspect of her life – from her mixed feelings about motherhood to her marriage to Martin, who has become distant in recent months. As the person behind the note escalates their campaign to out Eli’s husband as a cheat, she finds herself unable to trust even her own instincts, and as pressure builds, she makes a mistake that jeopardises her entire future. Elsewhere, someone is watching. Someone who desperately wants a baby to call their own and will go to any lengths to become a mother – and stay a mother.

My Rating: 3 Stars

My Thoughts: It’s really hard to review this book without spoilers. I will say I had no clue where this book was going until near the end. Nothing is as it seems. It was a relatively fast read and I finished it in less than a day. I was expecting a completely different story line than what this book turned out to be and the blurb was a bit misleading. However the big reveal wouldn’t have been so satisfying if I’d known ahead of time. The middle of the story seemed to lag a bit for me and I found myself skimming pages to get to some action. It was a well written story with a good epilogue that wrapped up the details nicely.
