twist. A great suspense thriller.
I have walked around like a zombie for the last week whilst reading ‘The Trophy Child’, mainly because I literally could not put it down and had way too many late nights just wanting to finish a chapter! The story had me gripped and the ending was a great unexpected twist.
Karen is a ‘tiger mum’, she pushes Bronte to the limit with out of school activities and extra tuition. Noel, Karen’s husband buries his head in the sand and throws himself into his work & the occasional extra marital dalliance
Verity, Noels’s daughter from his first marriage lives with them, Verity’s Mum has MS and is in a care home. Verity mildly puts up with Karen but her anger tends to over flow when she witnesses how horrible Bronte’s life is becoming at the hands of her Step Mum.
Everything changes on the day Bronte disappears, it starts a whole domino effect of events. Everyone comes under scrutiny and the family is never the same again, but this isn’t entirely a bad thing!
