Woman Magazine

A mother’s desperation
Woman On The Edge by Samantha M Bailey, Headline, PB, £8.9 9
Get ready for this white-knuckle read, which starts the minute a stranger hands Morgan her baby before jumping in front of an oncoming train. As this psychological thriller continues, the questions keep coming. Why Morgan? Were the two women really strangers? One twisty thriller you’ll find difficult to step away from.

Peterborough Telegraph

Samantha M. Bailey
Headline £8.99
When a woman approaches her on a subway platform, says her name and thrusts her baby into Morgan Kincaid’s arms, her life changes in seconds as the woman commits suicide on the track. With no witnesses to her strange story, police suspect widowed Morgan of being a baby snatcher who pushed the woman. When Morgan tries to clear her name she discovers the mother was a businesswoman, who had enemies. And Morgan fears those enemies may be coming after her and the baby in this
tensely twisty tale. 8/10
