it was amazing

It's just an ordinary day at Peabody St Nursery. Nine children ages between three & five are playing happily together or on their own. One of the staff begins to gather them together for a story when three armed men appear. They lock the staff in a cupboard, seriously injuring one of them and whisk the children off in a minibus.

The injured member of staff had her phone in her pocket & the staff called for help. By the time DCI Anna Tate arrives the minibus is gone. As a mother who lost her child when her ex-husband abducted her daughter, this is a case that fills Anna with an even great desire to reunite these children with their parents.

Understandably the parents are distraught. The Brady's have an additional worry as their son Liam has cystic fibrosis & needs medication to keep him alive. The parents blame the staff, especially as the owner has had previous problems with another nursery she runs. When a ransom note arrives Anna worries that time may run out before they find the kidnappers.

This was a fast paced well written story. I liked the characters & I'm delighted to hear that there are more stories featuring Anna Tate- especially after that ending!

Thanks to Netgalley & the publisher for letting me read & review this five star book.
