  • A real page-turner

    Megan and Greg are married with a son, Daniel. Greg is abusive and Megan finally divorces him. One day, Greg picks Daniel up from school when he was 6 years old never to return with him. Megan never gives up hope finding Daniel alive and well. She marries one of the detectives that was on the case and they have a baby girl, Evie. Six years after Daniel's disappearance, Megan gets a call that Daniel has walked into a police department and told them who he was. This is a very emotional story from start to finish and I really enjoyed it. even though it was heartbreaking. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC of this very powerful story in exchange for an honest review. I highly recommend this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Nicole Trope just gets better with each book

    Amazing, brutal, thought provoking, honest. A thriller yes and also a commentary on society that is gut wrenching and hard to read in places with the author pulling no punches . Where one woman a week on average is killed by either an ex-partner or current partner in Australia this is a story of our times and a classic example of the Stockholm Syndrome within a relationship. Just another brilliant story from Nicole concerning relationships with the hope any woman that reads this and see themselves portrayed find the strength to move on.

  • A tearjerker to read in a day

    I could not put down The Boy in the Photo, and true to what I had heard about it from other reviewers, it did not disappoint me. Daniel was taken from Megan by her ex-husband when he was six years old. Since his abduction, Megan put all her efforts in finding him, with no success. Then, six years later, Daniel walks into a police station, two hour drive from where Megan lives, and identifies himself. What follows is a narrative about bringing a lost child home, getting him adjusted to his mother’s new life, while trying to get him out of the shadow of his now-dead father. Nicole did an amazing job of portraying Megan’s struggles as well as family’s, before and after Daniel’s return. Megan’s anguish at loosing her son, guilt at moving on, and attempts to reconnect with the son she once knew, are evident and capture the reader in wanting to know what happens next. Though most of the novel is written in the time since Daniel’s return, there are chapters where the reader glimpses what each passing anniversary of Daniel’s abduction was like for both Daniel and Megan. In real life, we do not have the luxury of knowing exactly what happened. We are restricted to what someone tells us about their life. These flashbacks are helpful in understanding what happened to Daniel and why he behaves the way he does. I am thankful to NetGalley, the publisher and, especially, Nicole Trope, for making this book available to me ahead of publication, and giving me the opportunity to experience Megan’s story. It is one of the best books I have read this year and I recommend it to all Jodi Picoult fans as well as anyone looking for a tearjerker to read in a day.

  • page turner

    The Boy in the Photo will tug at your heart strings when Daniel who had been abducted at age 6 is reunited with his Mom Daniel is not the same boy, but how could he be ? There is a sense of unease as Daniel struggles to adapt being back. The book is told from the past, which slowly lets you understand Daniel and Megan, and from the present. You think you have it figured out but do you ? Enjoyable read that will keep you turning the pages.

  • Very enjoyable

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to others who like a suspense thriller/mystery. The story takes place in Australia and is about an extremely dysfunctional family where the husband is physically and emotionally abusive. The wife eventually leaves which backfires when the husband shows up at school and kidnaps his 6-year-old son. Fast forward to 6 years later when the mom has remarried and had a new baby and all of a sudden gets a call that her son has been found. The book goes into overdrive and keeps on going until all is revealed. The book held my interest throughout and it was a very quick and easy read. I must admit that I had pretty much guessed the ending but that didn’t detract from enjoying reading it. Thanks to NetGalley for letting me read this advance copy in exchange for my unbiased review.
