When I think of summer a lot of things come to mind – the beach, hanging out by the pool, vacation, barbecues, picnics and reading.
The summer is a great time to catch up on all of those books you have been meaning to read but never had the time to. It’s also a great time to grab a good book and find a shady spot to read and let your mind go on an adventure.
Recently we were at the beach and I saw A LOT of people reading.
If you are someone who enjoys reading during the summer months (or year round), I have a book suggestion for you – Baby Doll by Hollie Overton.
Escape was just the beginning.
Held captive for eight years, Lily has grown from a teenager to an adult in a small basement prison. Her daughter Sky has been a captive her whole life. But one day their captor leaves the deadbolt unlocked.
This is what happens next… to Lily, to her twin sister, to her mother, to her daughter—and to her captor.
For fans of Gone Girl and Girl on the Train, Baby Doll is the most tense thriller you will read this year.
“What a compulsive read! A brilliant first novel that kept me transfixed and entertained until the very last page.” – Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of Die Again.
About the author;
A tense, unique psychological thriller, Baby Doll is a remarkable first novel from TV writer Hollie Overton, who has worked Cold Case, The Client List, and the new Shadowhunters on ABC Family.
Debut author Hollie Overton was raised by her single mother, and Hollie—an identical twin herself—draws on her unique childhood experiences for her first novel, Baby Doll. Overton’s father was a member of the notorious Overton gang in Austin, Texas, and spent several years in prison for manslaughter. Hollie is a television writer and resides in Los Angeles.
I have a copy of the book. I have been trying to read a few pages here and there when I could. I didn’t bring it to the beach with me (I rather be in the water than on the beach reading). So far, from what I read, it’s a very interesting read. It’s a real page turner. It’s the kind of book you don’t want to put down – you want to continue reading the next page because you want to know what happens.
I really enjoyed Gone Girl and I heard good things about Girl on a Train. I can see why Baby Doll compares to those popular titles.
I am looking forward to reading more of Baby Doll.
