Tara wakes up in hospital after an overdose, having never used drugs. She then embarks on a journey in order to retain custody of her son, Wylie, with the help of defence attorney and childhood friend Reid, who isn't altogether convinced of her innocence, and Reid's investigative friend Willow. Tara was a well characterised character, even if at times she annoyed me. I much preferred Willow and Reid, especially Reid, who was very much a flawed individual. The narrator, Laura Jennings, was also brilliant. Every character felt like they had distinctive voices and it felt much easier to sympathise with Tara through the narration.

    Interesting mystery. Story about Tara and her friend Reid, they were there to support and help each other when they were growing up. Now Tara needs held, calls on him. Reid is not satisfied with his life, and defending guilty people. He has good and giving friends around. Angels and demons fighting to get what they want.

    Not bad. Quite light reading for a thriller - fairly predictable and lacks the depth to the characters that make a truly great read. On the other hand I did spend the first few chapters screaming (on the inside, obv.) for somebody to check Tara for needle marks, and as a parent there was the whole empathy thing going on. Overall: Light but interesting and entertaining. Worth the read for a freebie - and I might just check out the other books by this author too.

    "A steady-paced thriller" This will appeal to several types of reader. It's a thriller, wrapped up in a romance, and tied with a mystery bow. Not really my kind of book, but it's well-written, and with believable characters and situations. "A steady-paced thriller" This will appeal to several types of reader.

    This was ok for a quick read, could’ve been better. Tara was a likable character, if I was in her position I doubt I would be likable. I can’t imagine having my kid taken and nobody listening to me when I told the truth! Reid, I totally did not like. Shell of a person and a real asshole, imo. I really didn’t consider this a thriller, i could figure it out from the beginning, it all make sense clear as day (not going to give it away in a review, go read it and see if you can figure it out)

    Story ok, drew me in and won me over. Narrator has a pleasant voice. Male voices recognizable but, could be a bit deeper.

    It started out so promising!!! Not only was the twist relatively predictable, it was pretty far fetched. The characters were interesting but I still have unanswered questions

    Excellent, quick read. Quick because I never wanted to have to stop reading! I figured out the "bad guys" pretty early in the book, but it was still a pleasure moving toward that conclusion. Ms. Stewart has created an incredible woman in Tara, and Reid's coming around was fun to read. The story is suspenseful and unique, and the story lines casual and believable. Excellent, quick read.

    Tara wakes up in a hospital and is told she'd left her toddler in a parking lot and OD'ed on heroin. Now she's being arrested, needs to prepare a case, will likely lose her child to the system, and most probably will go to jail. The catch? She's never done drugs. And she's pretty sure someone's framing her for all this. Tara desperately calls her childhood friend Reid, now a defense attorney, and he must not only believe this crazy story, but build a case to prove it and defend it in court.

Now she's being arrested, needs to prepare a case, will likely lose her child to the system, and most probably will go to jail. The catch? She's never done drugs. And she's pretty sure someone's framing her for all this. Tara desperately calls her childhood friend Reid, now a defense attorney, and he must not only believe this crazy story, but build a case to prove it and defend it in court. Several things make this novel tedious. Of course the villains are "religious"; though it's at least portrayed as more of a cult. Tara and Reid spend like 1/3 of the book going over and over her claim that she's innocent. Then, in spite of their "love" (or is it just the same type of "love" they had even they first met as teens?) they can't decide if they want to commit to be together. And the huge plot hole that (view spoiler)[instead of her in-laws framing her, WHY couldn't they just kill her and take the baby they so desperately wanted? The cultish punishment of evildoers could apply all well and good to others, but they made a big messy situation out of what could've ended them up with the kid easily. (hide spoiler)] The portrayal of a desperate mother is touching, and the action scenes are tense and realistic. But the anti-church agenda and ridiculous plot holes ruined it.

    I read this late into the night. I never thought that I would have this moment ever again, and with this type of book, no less. I have never really tried mystery books, but the plot of this had intrigued me so much that I had to read it. The way that the words are articulated and written is so captivating that it makes me flip the pages, making it a book that I could not put down. It was great, and I definitely loved it!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. What I didn't like: I found Tara so freakin' annoying that I nearly didn't care who the bad guy was! She lied all the time (concealing the full truth = a lie as far as I'm concerned), she used Reid (and played on his guilt over their childhood actions), she kept repeating she was innocent/was set up yet she managed to be entirely unsympathetic, she claimed to love her son but in all the flashbacks we had of them she came across as playing pretend (no idea how the author managed that!) and natural What I didn't like: I found Tara so freakin' annoying that I nearly didn't care who the bad guy was!

Never mind that when things were worse (waking up at the hospital in the beginning of the book) she had zero heart issues or fainting or anything to make her condition feel like anything but an attempt at manipulation. Red wasn't much better. For a guy who claims to act tough and see right through guilty people and be fully immune to BS, he sure turned into putty every time she brought up their childhood or timely fainted. The childhood backstory was... that she lied to the cops for him. That's it. There was a slight continuation of him not tracking her down when CPS removed her from her parents' house and to the house of a great-uncle but it felt forced. Are we really supposed to believe a guy in his late teens/early 20s would realistically track her down that much? And do what? Force her to come back and support her or something? The bad guys were entirely far fetched, sorry. I could see them wanting Wylie and perhaps even go after Tara, but not this way and not to this extent. What I did like: Willow. She was the only person that seemed remotely interesting and real enough. I'd definitely read a book about her and her life (simply telling us she's a mother so she 'gets' Tara by default and has a hubby who is a doctor just when we need one, doesn't cut it). The writing style and prose. The constant flashbacks isn't something I personally enjoy but Ms. Stewart is a very good writer on the whole. I'd try another of her books, who knows? Maybe this one was a fluke.

    Starting off, the book was good. It isn't the type of book to keep you anticipated, but one that'll be a simple and relaxing read. The 'mystery' in this book was very simple to figure out-you were able to figure it out in chapter 1 or 2. There were merely any antagonists, except for the 'bad guy' (nickname for the criminal in the novel). The 'bad guy' was barely in the story, and it almost felt like his/her character was 'forcefully' incorporated into the novel. The flashbacks in the story sho Starting off, the book was good.

Though, these developed Reid's and Tara's love/friendship, there were many nonessential details in it. Now talking about the pacing, I think the author did a great job on that, as she had a slow pace in the beginning but increased it towards the middle and end, where it was necessary. Finally, I specifically liked that this novel didn't include a lot of descriptions and imagery like other books do; It, however, did have plenty of great dialogues that moved the plot forward. Even though at certain points I lost track of who was talking, the dialogues included details that were significant to the story. Overall, I think it's a good read, but maybe not the best mystery novel.

When she wakes up in the hospital, the detective is reading her 'Her Rights.' Using her only call, she calls a friend who she hadn't seen in ten years when she was fourteen and he sixteen. Luckily, he is an excellent defense, but he doesn't believe her. Their childhood plays an integral part in how they move in the right direction as to solving Tara's legal problems. However, Reid has a problem acquainting himself with what they meant to each other and for each other. They both have issues in dealing with society. Reid is a workaholic and lives like a hermit. Tara tries to do everything on her without a support system. With conflicts and reevaluations of their selves, they meet in the right place, leading to a conclusion the may not see coming. With support, the story ends in their favor. The characters are thoroughly developed; the plot is interesting; there are twists, and the prose is thrilling until the end.

Never again." ~ a nightmare for any parent; this fast-paced story mixes agony and despair with hope and kindness. Great read!

    It's been a while since I read a story with so much emotion & intense feeling in it, while having a good mystery too. Tara is found overdosing on heroin in an alley and accused of leaving her child to freeze in a supermarket lot. She has absolutely no idea what happened to herself, when she comes to but she knows that she is being charged with felony child endangerment. No one believes her when she says she doesn't do drugs.

Kindness can have such a profound effect. Relationships are given so much importance and most importantly, what will tug at your heart is Tara's unconditional motherly love for her son. She is strength personified but she doesn't know that herself. It's a really beautiful story that will melt your heart, make you cry sad and happy tears and overall make you fall in love with humanity itself. Also, the book cover is gorgeous and the title is so apt and attractive.

Tara Shiloh knows she’s not a drug addict but was found with a needle in her arm and a heroin overdose and she called her long-time bestie, Reid Holliston, to defend her. The plot develops from there and reaches a very good and enthralling climax with about two-thirds of the book to go. And then there is the conspiracy behind the plot and the romance section of the book which was reasonably well done. It was certainly an easy read and the jumps back in history between the two main characters was very well done and put some perspective on the current situation. I am not sure of the book has been designed to be the first in a series but time and reading will tell.

Still, it's probably worth a listen for anyone who likes this genre (mystery/romance - though the romance wasn't heavy-handed or annoying, fortunately). I still have no clue who this "Piper Anderson" is, though. :p

    Interesting, heartbreaking, yet so possible My only complaint was the slower moving plot. I usually dive into a book and there is no stopping. Being a foster family ourselves, I really wanted to read this just out of curiosity. The story itself is heartbreaking, and could easily happen to anyone. (That's the really scary part) however, I have never seen anyone that had a lawyer and a PI working for them to figure out the who and what.
