BLOG TOUR: Little Boy Found - LK Fox


One rainy morning, just after Nick drops off his young son Gabriel outside the crowded school gates, he has a minor collision with another car. The driver won't surrender his insurance details, so Nick photographs the licence plate. When he gets home, he enlarges the shot on his phone and spots something odd about the picture - Gabriel in the back seat, being driven away by a stranger. Nick needs to know what happened to his boy, but losing Gabriel turns out to be far less terrible than the shock of finding him. Now, to discover the truth, he must relive the nightmare all over again...Be warned, this is not another missing child story: what happened to Nick and his son is far more shocking.

What did I think?

It's not something that I usually comment on, but I have to say that I love the cover of this book - the colours work so well together and the blurry boy reaching out from behind the glass gives me goosebumps...more so now that I have read the book.  So what's it all about?

Nick drops his son off at school and bumps into another car.  The driver isn't very forthcoming and leaves the scene before details are swapped, luckily Nick manages to snap a picture of the car reg on his phone.  When he enlarges the picture, he can't believe what he sees - his son Gabriel in the back of the car.  How can that be?  He's just dropped him off at school, but when he rings the school Garbiel's name is not on the register.  Nick's mind is in turmoil as he tries to make sense of what has gone on.

Meanwhile we encounter another story, that of Ella who is infatuated with Ryder, the lead singer of a band.  Ella would do anything to meet Ryder but when her dream comes true it rapidly turns into a nightmare.  What on earth does this have to do with Nick's story?  A-ha!  Even my suspicious mind couldn't work this one out and, although it seems quite unrealistic, it was still a pretty good storyline.

Little Boy Found is quite a page turner and although you hope for a happy ending, you do fear that it may not happen.  Nick's life is put completely under the microscope and his history is revealed, warts and all...some of it I guessed and other bits of it, I didn't.  I did get a surprise at the end but with so many unhinged characters, I did feel as if anything could happen! 

I chose to read an ARC and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.  I am releasing my review as part of the blog tour.
