Single Mother - by Samantha Hayes

✨ Books-On-Tour Review ✨

🎉 It has been my absolute pleasure to read & review #SingleMother by #SamanthaHayes! Today's my stop on this @Bookouture #BooksOnTour #BlogTour with my #BookReview. 

“Single Mother” was an unputdownable, read late into the night kind of book! I very much enjoyed the short, suspenseful chapters, continually telling myself, “...just one more chapter!” It's hard to believe that this was my first read by Samantha Hayes! 

The story itself follows single mother Mel and her twelve-year-old daughter Kate. They are down on their luck and trying to escape Mel’s abusive ex when an unexpected inheritance seemingly solves all of their problems. Mel endeavors to not only rebuild a stable environment for Kate but also to restore the old, inherited, and beaten down hotel. When Kate goes missing one night after a disturbing discovery on the grounds, Mel fears the worst.

Hayes has penned quite the thrilling tale with “Single Mother,” skillfully snatching up her readers and sending them racing down a twisted, winding path. While I did figure out a few of the reveals beforehand, I was altogether satisfied with how the story came together. Sarah’s character may have just been my favorite; at first, she was eerily unsettling, creeping around the hotel, but as her story came to fruition, I felt the heartbreak, fury, and finally the satisfaction in her ultimate breakthrough and resolve.  

I'd recommend this book to the many thriller fans out there; you won't want to miss this one! On another note, I'd like to mention that I enjoyed the author's letter at the end; it’s always interesting to find out the inspiration behind the written word. 

Many thanks to NetGalley, the author Samantha Hayes, and the publishers at Bookouture for my advanced copy of this ebook and my spot on this Books-On-Tour event!

Single Mother
Author: Samantha Hayes
Publication Day: January 5, 2021
Pages: 357

Book Blurb:
I will do anything to protect my daughter. She’s all I’ve ever wanted and all I really have, but the moment I opened that letter and accepted the inheritance, I walked us right into a dangerous trap.

I know I should have got her to tell me who she’s been talking to on the phone late at night, and where she was the day I went to pick her up from school and couldn’t find her, but she’s not spoken a word since she found that little pile of bones buried in the garden.

And now she’s missing…

A jaw-dropping, addictive and totally twisty psychological thriller that will have you sleeping with the light on! Perfect for anyone who loved The Girl on the Train, Friend Request or The Wife Between Us.
