Or some such i bought in Tesco. What a load of tripe. Names all wrong for the ages, unless set in the 70s, no mobile phone to Google on - she uses a directory at one point to look for airlines. Usual stupid storyline involving people acting like nobody ever does ever.
Scenarios that couldn't happen because that's not how the systems work as far as I know.
Ended up skim reading it to the predictable ending.

There seem to be more and more books like this being churned out. I started The Long Fall by Julia Crouch, and found it so slly and far-fetched that I skim read the last two chapters, and was glad I hadn't wasted time reading the whole book.

Not sure how to avoid it, maybe stop buying books in the supermarket with my weekly shop grin

Saw Emma's Baby in Tesco and wondered about it! Instead bought The Fire Child, and it's not exactly grabbing me! Too many similar books out at the moment.

Is that the follow up to the Ice Twins? I thought it was dreadful if so - cod Victorian schlock horror
