Giving birth was traumatic enough for Lauren but to have a gypsy come to you while you are still in the hospital and tell you she wants to trade your twins for hers would be even more traumatic.
Lauren had a very difficult birth and a husband who has checked out in the helping department with the twins.
Along with sleep deprivation, Lauren is deathly afraid to leave the house because of the woman she saw hours after the birth of her twins and again in her front yard and scratching at the window.
LITTLE DARLINGS moves along quickly sharing Lauren's fears and her wonderful care of her twins Morgan and Riley.
Then one day when Lauren finally ventured out and had a good time with her friends, she became exhausted, sat on a bench in the park, fell asleep, and when she woke, the stroller was gone.
A nightmare for any parent, but it seemed more pronounced for Lauren because of the threat from the gypsy.
No one believed Lauren about any of this.
They do find the stroller, but Lauren screams that they are not her babies. They had been switched and were changelings. This started an entire other problem for Lauren.
LITTLE DARLINGS will be frightening for anyone but even more so for any reader who is a new parent.
The book has a bit of paranormal and fairy stories as part of its theme, but it is more of a thriller and a mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat. 4/5
This book was given to me as an ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
