BLOG TOUR: Trust Me - T.M. Logan


Ellen was just trying to help a stranger. That was how it started: giving a few minutes respite to a flustered young mother sitting opposite her on the train. A few minutes holding her baby while the mother makes an urgent call. The weight of the child in her arms making Ellen's heart ache for what she can never have.

Five minutes pass.

The train pulls into a station and Ellen is stunned to see the mother hurrying away down the platform, without looking back. Leaving her baby behind. Ellen is about to raise the alarm when she discovers a note in the baby's bag, three desperate lines scrawled hastily on a piece of paper:

Please protect Mia
Don't trust the police
Don't trust anyone

Why would a mother abandon her child to a stranger? Ellen is about to discover that the baby in her arms might hold the key to an unspeakable crime. And doing the right thing might just cost her everything . . .

What did I think?

I always get excited when I see a new T.M. Logan book being published as they are guaranteed to be exciting and gripping reads.  His latest book, Trust Me, is no exception as it sets off at lightning pace with such an intriguing premise.  

Ellen is left literally holding the baby when she helps a young mother on the train and the mother gets off at the next station, leaving the baby behind along with a note telling Ellen not to trust anyone.  Ellen's senses are immediately heightened and she sees danger at every turn especially as stepping off the train with a baby that isn't hers, she is an assumed kidnapper.

I couldn't help but put myself in Ellen's shoes and believe me, it's not a pair of shoes I'd covet but this is where I got a little annoyed at her.  The note specifically said don't trust the police but she seems intent on handing Mia over to the authorities at the first opportunity.  Of course, I'm not saying I would have been any different and I'm reading a fictional book after all so it's all part of the story.

There's so much going on in the story that I felt quite dizzy at times but I had totally bought into the 'don't trust anyone' storyline so I suspected everybody at one time or another.  My sleuthing skills were way off though as I was surprised at every turn as the story raced towards its heart-stopping conclusion.

Although I read it in 4 chunks, I would still say that this is a gripping and addictive book.  If I'd been reading a physical copy I definitely would have found it difficult to put down, whereas I only read digitally in bed so it takes me a lot longer to read ebooks.

Completely gripping with a constant element of danger that kept me on the edge of my seat, Trust Me is a blisteringly fast-paced rollercoaster of a read and another cracker from T.M. Logan.

I received a digital ARC to read and review for the blog tour; this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
