A chance encounter
She sees the teenage girl on the train platform, standing in the pouring rain, clutching an infant in her arms. She boards a train and is whisked away. But she can't get the girl out of her head…
An act of kindness
Heidi has always been charitable but her family are horrified when she returns home with a young woman named Willow and her baby in tow. Dishevelled and homeless, this girl could be a criminal - or worse. But despite the family's objections, Heidi offers them refuge.
A tangled web of lies
As Willow begins to get back on her feet, disturbing clues into her past starts to emerge. Now Heidi must question if her motives for helping the stranger are unselfish or rooted in her own failures.
I give it - 5/5
My review - Mary has done it again!
For those who know me, know that I adored her first book THE GOOD GIRL and was super excited when she announced that she was writing another book - PRETTY BABY. I could not put this book down, I read it from start to finish, it gripped me from the very first page and didn't let me go.
I like that there was different chapters from Heidi, Willow and Chris, it was nice to read what they where thinking or what they where up too. They are all very different characters. Heidi opens up her home to homeless Willow and her daughter. But there is so much more to this young girl then you think.
I loved how the story kept me guessing until the end, and it was a brilliant way to end the book!
This was such a fantastic book that everyone needs to give a read. Mary really knows how to write a book that will keep you reading until the very hours of the morning and leave you with a book hangover like it did to me, I don't regret any second.
