I found nobody’s baby in my local library and the name of the book and blurb on the back really caught my attention, I was very excited to read it.
When I first started reading nobody’s baby I really enjoyed the first part of the book of her finding the baby and my expectations went high I thought this is going to be great book but as the story goes on I seemed to lose interest and thought the story dragged on abit.
The only reason I continued reading was because I really wanted to find out what happened to the baby and her parents.
The story is told from Izzy’s pov ( witha small excerpts of someone else’s) , so although I enjoyed the beginning I really thought this book would have been a lot better, I was either confused or i lost interest In most part’s of the book.
My rating 2 stars **
In the middle of the night Izzy Lomas finds an abandoned baby on her doorstep. It could have been left by any desperate person … except that the baby’s name, pinned in a note to its carrycot, brings back a striking memory from her childhood. If you had a baby what would you call it …
If Izzy’s suspicions are correct and she tells the police, it could end in tragedy. Allowing herself some time to investigate, she frantically tries to trace the baby’s mother, but every twist and turn in her search seems to lead to a dead end. And the longer she stays silent, how many people is she putting in terrible danger?
Nobody’s Baby is an engaging and eerie thriller about loss, control, and the desperate edge of human emotions.
