As she becomes convinced that Sophie is not only involved but also in danger, Karen must confront her own anxieties to stop whoever killed one young girl moving on to another – Sophie
Sam Carrington is one to watch with this debut novel. It is tense, gripping and emotive.
When Sophie is brought home by the Police after a night out with her friends Karen and her husband, like most parents would be, are not best pleased. But when, the next morning, Sophie has no recollection of these events and with the news that one of Sophie’s friends is now missing, Karen becomes more than a little worried.
This tale will make you want to lock up your daughters. The scares are very real and it made my heart race.
Saving Sophie is a novel that is a one sit read, it is superbly written and is dramatic and filled with secrets and deceit. Along with the domestic situation of Sophie’s family , which are very representational of families that are hard working with relationship issues and with a angst ridden teen thrown in, it is clear that Carrington knows what it’s all about.
It is a jigsaw that pieces together brilliantly. It has twists and turns and an ending that is just fabulous. I couldn’t breathe throughout.. isn’t that just a good sign?
Sam Carrington is an author to watch, and I can’t wait for book 2, having read about it, I’m rather quite excited.
