Hide and Seek by Amy Bird

In a thriller that follows similar trends to Gone Girl, Hide and Seek by Amy Bird evaluates the dynamics between a couple about to have their first child and the secret that could tear their world apart. The book opens with Will and Ellie Spears attending their 20-week scan for their first child, and discovering that they are expecting a boy.

I love the Mercy Thompson series. Night Broken might be the book eight, but the writing is still crisp, the action thrilling and even though Mercy is now married, the romance is as engaging as it’s ever been. The love between Adam and Mercy is awesome, they are what true love is all about.

This is how the book begins, throwing us straight into the action without knowing who, what or why, even leaving a description of Natalie until a later chapter. It is a while before we learn that she walks with a cane, and longer before we are told that this down to a knee injury from years previous. However, getting back to the issue at hand, she is determined to…
