Blog Tour: The Family at No 12 by Anita Waller

Thanks to @rachelsrandomresources for my copy and spot on the tour

When Janette answers the door to a potential customer looking to board his dog, she never imagines he has nefarious plans.

But minutes later heโ€™s dead and in her cellar.

Weeks later she realises sheโ€™s pregnant.

And so she becomes Mother and the baby Child, and a hidden life begins.

But all secrets come out eventually . .

This book gets pretty dark. There are so many trigger warnings, and it makes for very uncomfortable reading.
The plot starts off as a slow burn, but if you can get through the opening pages, it becomes a gripping and intriguing read.
I wasn’t sure if I ‘liked’ the characters as such, but they really added to the suspense in the plot.
As my first Anita Waller book, it was a strong introduction to her work, and I look forward to more.
