The Surrogate

‘You know that feeling? When you want something so badly, you almost feel you’d kill for it?’

Be careful what you wish for…

Kat and her husband Nick have tried everything to become parents, and are on the point of giving up. Then a chance encounter with Kat’s childhood friend Lisa gives Kat and Nick one last chance to achieve their dream.

But Kat and Lisa’s history hides dark secrets.

And there is more to Lisa than meets the eye.

As dangerous cracks start to appear in Kat’s perfect picture of happily-ever-after, she realises that she must face her fear of the past to save her family…

From the no. 1 bestselling author of The Sister and The Gift, this is an unputdownable psychological thriller which asks how far we will go to create our perfect family.

Louise Jensen has already shown her talent to write intriguing books with her debut – The Sister so when this came out I knew I had to dive back into that creative mind of hers to see what she’d come up with next.

Using the familiar backdrop of infertility and wanting a baby, she shows the heart wrenching journey, emotional turmoil and deep decision making that goes into this process. When someone offers you the chance of a lifetime, a lifeline to the very dream you felt crumbling before you how could you not take it? Jensen uses this to offer a up a thriller that will have you feeling sorrow, anger, and that tingling of suspense at wondering what could possibly go wrong now?

Jensen winds so many questions and confusion into her story you start to wonder who can you trust, who is lying or is anything what it seems? You’re going to feel on edge through a great portion of it. I felt like I had to push myself a bit in the middle as I had trouble caring about Lisa and Kat for a while which sucked because they are the story. Eventually the story ramps right back up again and provides one heck of an ending!

The ending alone made reading this worth it and proved yet again why Jensen is so great. Even if you think you know what will happen there are so many twists and turns that smug sureness is going to turn into awe.
