A mother’s job is to keep her children safe.
Tess has always tried to be a good mother. Of course, there are things she wishes she’d done differently, but doesn’t everyone feel that way?
Then Emma, her youngest, is attacked on her way home from a party, plunging them into a living nightmare which only gets worse when the man responsible is set free
But what if she fails?
So when Tess sees the attacker in the street near their home, she is forced to take matters into her own hands. But blinded by her need to protect her daughter at any cost, might she end up putting her family in even greater danger?
There’s nothing she wouldn’t do to make it right . . .
Oh we do so love a good psychological thriller and domestic drama and Tammy Cohen always writes the most addictive narratives, no different here with “Stop At Nothing” a book I devoured in short order.
Every parent knows, to some extent, that feeling of hopelessness when one of your children is hurting, especially when there is seemingly nothing you can do. That is the crisis facing main protagonist Tess, who makes extraordinarily awful but sympathetic choices after her daughter is hurt..
Stop At Nothing is a twisty and engaging read, an authentic story about trust and judgment, about impaired thinking when facing adversity and a lot about how you find out who your real friends are. It is about a mother’s tiger love and how what is on the surface rarely reflects the underneath…
Gripping and clever, one of those books that you lose a day with, I thoroughly enjoyed it and definitely recommend it.
