The Suspect by Fiona Barton Review

Hello everyone! Mommy Reads here! :) A few weeks ago, a fellow bookstagrammer sent me her extra copy of The Suspect by Fiona Barton. I've previously read The Widow and loved it and was looking forward to her new book. 

At first, I found it a bit confusing with all the different characters and different POV's but it didn't take long to sort them out. I ended up loving how the story went back and forth between the reporter, the detective, the mother as well as snippets of what happened to the girls in Thailand. Kate Waters is an established reporter used to covering the latest stories but will soon find herself in the middle of her next feature. One of the themes is the love of a mother for her child and how far will a teenage or young adult child respond when they make a mistake they know will let their parents down. It's one of those books you won't want to put down and simply read cover to cover in one day. I loved it and will definitely recommend and will be on the lookout for future books by Fiona Barton!

Here's a quick synopsis:
When two eighteen-year-old girls go missing during their trip to Thailand, their families are left desperate and frantic with worry. Journalist Kate Waters always wants to be the first to the story and to discover the truth. With the girl's disappearance, she can't help but think about her own son she hasn't seen in two years since he left home to travel. As the case unfolds, they will all find that even this far away, danger cancan lie closer to home than you might think.

My rating: 4.5 stars
