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…

The Surrogate by Louise Jensen

The Surrogate is the first book I’ve read by Louise Jensen and indeed won’t be the last.

Kat and Nick are desperate for a child. After being unable to have their own, they turn to adoption. Kat and Nick are devastated after two adoptions fall through and they are at a loss on what else they can do.

Enter Kat’s best friend from high school, Lisa. Lisa offers to be a surrogate for Kat and Nick, and graciously, they accept.

But…

But Kat and Lisa share a long history together, which has separated their friendship for many years. Then, Kat becomes suspicious of Lisa, as strange things begin happening.

I enjoyed reading The Surrogate. Louise Jensen did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. The trouble I had was, I’m not sure I liked any of them. While Jake was my favorite, he was a secondary character. I am unsure if this was intentional or not.

The lack of connection with the characters was the only reason I gave it 4-stars. It was a pretty solid story with a twisty ending.  Who doesn’t love a twisty ending?

I can’t wait to read more of Louise Jensen’s books. I think she is a fantastic writer with a bright future ahead.

Bravo. 4-stars.

Thank you bookouture and Louise Jensen for allowing me the opportunity to review an advanced copy of this book.  All opinions are my own.
