Synopsis:


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.


Review:

This is a real page turner , that will have you reading late into the night. We've all seen the news stories, of girls who were abducted, and return home. What we DON'T get to see, or hear about for some time, is their adjustment. How they adapt back into their families, and the domino effect of their return on families who had discovered a new normal, that is now tossed overboard. If the book reads like a movie, it's no surprise, as Hollie is a TV writer, and she knows pacing and dialogue, which definitely drives the story line. I did feel like it wrapped up a bit too neatly and quickly, but with the TV pacing, it is understandable. And the story is a good read, and while it might be a mother's worst nightmare, it is ultimately a story of strength,love and faith in ourselves to survive, making it a great Summer read.
