    A really good read with twists and turns

    3.5 stars from me. I really enjoyed this book. The story begins with a woman whose husband has unexpectedly left her for a younger woman, so she's now having to cope on her own with her young Son. So, 'same old same old' I hear you say, but, it's so not and that's what I thoroughly enjoyed about the entire book. It's well written and kept my interest throughout as Nina (the lead character) is firstly held hostage and then pulled into a dark, complex situation. The story is told from the perspective of the different characters and it really worked for me. Many thanks to Netgalley, Harper Collins UK and Caroline Green for the opportunity to preview in exchange for this honest review. This was my first Cass Green book, but, definitely won't be my last!

    An intense read

    I’m sure this book will haunt me. May I refer firstly to the shocking revelation in the notes at the end of the book that two women per week are murdered by their husbands or ex’s every week. Added to that many women and children seeking refuge from an abusive partner are turned away from Refuges because of lack of governmental funding. There are probably thousands of women who are in an abusive relationship and too scared, proud or unable to escape. What this book outlines so well is the effect abusive relationships have on the children long-term. This novel has a unique plot. Three people, Nina, Angel and, Lucas with a screaming, stolen baby Zach find themselves in a potentially compromising, invidious situation. It’s incredible to note how the fingers of fear and panic can make people react and force them to make the wrong or dangerous decisions. It’s so well crafted that it makes your sympathies fluctuate. Truth or lies? Inevitably, you find yourself as judge and jury. Who can you trust? How should this situation be played out? It’s very intense from the first page, and the decisions made, and the cliff-hanger chapters add to the momentum. The ending is sensational and turns around completely. Thank you to NetGalley and HarperCollins.

    Intriguing premise, well-written, engrossing

    I didn't quite know what to expect going into this book, and for the first little bit, I wasn't sure where it was heading - whether it would be really good, or mediocre and predictable. But, after the first handful of chapters, it definitely drew me in. As a trauma survivor, this book resonated with me. The story does leave you guessing, not just about what exactly has happened but about who people are and what their intentions may be. I felt that the simplicity of it - there weren't a lot of characters or settings, allowed the author to really develop the characters that are there and allowed me as a reader to easily connect with them. The book is written largely from the perspectives of three separate characters, and the story slowly pulls together based on what's shown of each person, which gave it a very rounded feel. I found much of it very believable and true to life - there weren't any points where I had to really suspend disbelief, even where the context was somewhat outlandish. It was very well-written, obviously well researched and touches on points that are painful but all-too-present in our societies. I will definitely look for other books by this author, I've already recommended it to others.

    Don't you Cry

    Don't You Cry by Cass Green Thank you Netgalley for giving me the opportunity to read this book and give it an honest review. I have read all of Cass Greens books so far and loved them all, this one is just as fabulous as the others. Cass Green has a wonderful dark sense of humor that she integrates into her stories that is so fun. But don't be misled by thinking that means her stories are not frighteningly thrillers. Don't you Cry keeps you in Suspense from the beginning where Ninas home is invaded by two young people , holding her hostage and a baby. Nina has to use her wits and her ability to connect with people to try and get out of the situation. Many twists and turns and hair raising moments. You will be sitting on the edge of your seat. 5 stars!
