Book Review – Only Ever You by Rebecca Drake


Jill Lassiter’s three-year-old daughter disappears from a playground only to return after 40 frantic minutes, but her mother’s relief is short-lived–there’s a tiny puncture mark on Sophia’s arm. When doctors can find no trace of drugs in her system, Jill accepts she’ll never know what happened, but at least her child is safe.

Except Sophia isn’t. Someone is watching the Lassiter home in an affluent Pennsylvania suburb, infiltrating the family’s personal and professional lives. While Jill struggles to balance building her photography business with parenting high-spirited Sophia, and David is distracted by pressure to make partner at his law firm, both of them are holding on in a marriage that’s already been rocked by loss.

Three months after the incident at the park, Sophia disappears again, but this time Jill and David become the focus of police and media scrutiny and suspicion. Facing every parent’s worst nightmare a second time, Jill discovers that someone doesn’t just want Sophia for her own, she wants to
destroy the entire family.


My Review
4 out of 5 stars

This book gave me some serious anxiety! My heart always breaks for parents that have a child go missing. As a parent myself, even though my children are older, it is one of my worst fears. I felt so bad for Jill and her husband when Sophia went missing a second time. Just once would have been devastating enough.

This book had my attention from the beginning and all of the twists and turns kept me interested in the story. Once I thought I had things figured out, something would happen and it would change. I love being on the edge of my seat like that, flipping pages as fast as I can to see what will happen next.

This was my first book by this author but I will definitely be checking out her other ones.

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
