Gripping subjects, brilliantly drawn characters and a twisty turny journey from beginning to end. A tense, thrilling read and definitely 5 humongous ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ from me’ Angela Marsons.
Someone stole a baby…
One sunny day in July, someone took three-month-old Alicia Owen from her pram outside a supermarket. Her mother, Marie, was inside. No one saw who took Alicia. And no one could find her.
They silenced her cry…
Fifteen years later, a teenager on a construction site sees a tiny hand in the ground. When the police investigate, they find a baby buried and preserved in concrete. Could it be Alicia?
But the truth will always out.
When Alicia disappeared, the papers accused Marie of detachment and neglect. The Owens never got over the grief of their child’s disappearance and divorced not long after. By reopening the case, DC Beth Chamberlain must reopen old wounds. But the killer may be closer than anyone ever suspected…
The latest crime thriller featuring Family Liaison Officer DC Beth Chamberlain, Hush Little Baby is tightly plotted, fraught with tension and impossible to put down. Perfect for fans of Cara Hunter and K.L. Slater.

Thanks to aria and the author for my kindle version of this gripping, heart breaking story, in return for my own honest review.
This book had me mesmerised from the minute I picked it up, it is the first book I have read by this author in this series. Hush little baby is book 3 of 3 in the DC Beth Chamberlain series. I toughly enjoyed this book, although it is heart breaking to find out what has happened to poor Alicia.
The plot is very well written, I didn’t guess any of it, and was surprised by the outcome, as a mother of 2 children I simply don’t know how Alicia mother coped with the death of 2 babies, Alicia’s twin brother died in birth and then Alicia was kidnapped and murdered.
i would like to give this book 5 stars but i cant simply because i think that the story to do with Alicia was over too quick, the last few chapters of the book had nothing to do with the cold case of Alicia but that of a personal matter for DC Chamberlain.
