Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing The Mother’s Fault by Nicole Trope. This was released on the 15th of October, published by Bookouture.
She’ll do anything to save her son. But what if telling the truth means losing him for ever?
On a crisp winter’s evening, Beverly is cooking for her son. Eight-year-old Riley is climbing a tree in the garden, and Beverly smiles as she watches him. Nothing makes her happier than her precious child having fun – she never thought they’d be happy again.
The water on the stove is boiling, and Beverly slides in a handful of spaghetti. When she glances out of the window again, Riley is not there.
She races outside, her heart thumping. Riley is nowhere to be found.
Instinctively, Beverly knows that her son has not just run away. She knows this because of her secret – the one she has kept for eight years. The one that means she has no choice but to keep neighbours at a distance, that stops her sleeping at night.
She thought she’d made the right decision, that she was protecting her son. But now he’s gone. Could this be all her fault?
She’ll do anything to save him. Yet if she tells the truth, she could lose him for ever…
A totally gripping psychological thriller that will get your pulse racing like crazy as it hits you with twist after twist after twist! If you loved The Wife Between Us or The Girl on the Train you’ll be utterly glued to this page-turner.
“Your past is catching up with you…Your child is paying the price…”
My second book by fellow Aussie Nicole Trope, The Mother’s Fault is a powerful tale where its lead is torn between a lie and the truth when faced with the disappearance of her eight year old son. The reader is taken on quite the journey through the pages, that are chock full of secrets, tension, suspense, red herrings and twists galore, making for such a thrilling read.
If you are a fan of psychological thrillers and family dramas, then The Mother’s Fault is a must read from a very talented author that I look forward to read more from.
Thank you to Nicole Trope, Bookouture and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Mother’s Fault, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

Let’s Get to Know Nicole Trope
Nicole Trope went to university to study Law but realised the error of her ways when she did very badly on her first law essay because, as her professor pointed out, ‘It’s not meant to be a story.’
She studied teaching instead and used her holidays to work on her writing career and complete a Masters’ degree. In between raising three children, working for her husband and renovating houses, she has published six novels. She lives in Sydney, Australia.
