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…
‘You know that feeling? When you want something so badly, you almost feel you’d kill for it?’ 

MORAL OF THE STORY:
THINGS AREN'T ALWAYS AS THEY SEEM.
SOME FRIENDSHIPS ARE BETTER LEFT IN THE PAST.

Ok! Where do I even begin? This book was such a wild ride. The who's, what's and why's never stop and after a while you begin to question your own sanity. Just when you think you have the slightest inkling of what is happening, Louise Jensen throws you into another direction. Spinning what you "thought" you know completely upside down!

This is my first book by Louise Jensen but it will NOT be my last! I have already ordered my copy of  The Sister and cannot wait to dive into it. I was completely entranced by The Surrogate. It held me tightly in its grasp from the very beginning and still has yet to let me go even though I have turned the last page. Louise Jensen has proven to me, with just this book, that she is a mastermind at psychological thrillers. She penned such a suspenseful thrill ride that had me flying through the pages at a fervent pace. 

The Surrogate is delivered in Kat's perspective but also has 'Now and Then' segments that hop back and forth between Kat and Nick. Louise Jensen crafted this aspect beautifully. Not once do you ever get confused or need to backtrack. Each character also stands so strongly. The Main cast appears to be Kat and Nick yet all of the secondary characters play a major role in this novel. Each one has a vital part in the strength of this story and the entire package of the novel. 

The Surrogate will have you questioning every relationship and motive and the sincerity of people. Should you rekindle that friendship or leave the past behind you?

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of The Surrogate and cannot wait to dive into Jensen's previous and future work. She is a real gem in the literary world and will have you on the edge of your seat in nail-biting suspense!

  1. The steel Daytona has not only been a rare bird that replica watches has often made extremely difficult to obtain, but also an icon among luxury chronographs. I had hublot replica around for a couple of weeks and, not too long after starting to wear it. Has it retained its magic, or has its fame made it let its guard down as competition became fiercer every year. Lots of questions on my mind, so I set off seeking answers. Although, come to think of it, I am tag heuer replica quite sure how this scientifically questionable saying caught on, the Daytona history at this fake rolex sale may very well be coming out your elbow too you have heard it so many times. But these shall already suffice to keep decent and fun human beings from spending too much time around you, should you talk about these frequently. The emphasis is on not calling everything by its reference all the replica watches sale like a total douche and not on being ignorant about watch history.
