  • Loved it

    Loved this story. Had me gripped right until the last sentence. What a turn of events! A mix of emotions from start to finish. Such refreshing characters and heartbreaking story of love, hate, family, and betrayal. So good.

  • Keeps you guessing

    Single Mother draws you in slowly but knowing Samantha Hayes, you just know you are in for a wild ride with lots of twist and turns and an ending you won't see coming. Single Mother did all that and more. The pages turn themselves as you follow Mel and her daughter Kate on a journey to a new life as Mel inherits a hotel from an unknown benefactor. Sound too good to be smooth sailing for this mother and daughter team? You are right the waters become rough quickly. Your light will stay on at night for just one more chapter. Great read to keep you guessing.

  • ...just one more chapter! Unputdownable!

    “Single Mother” was an unputdownable, read late into the night kind of book! I very much enjoyed the short, suspenseful chapters, continually telling myself, “...just one more chapter!” It's hard to believe that this was my first read by Samantha Hayes! The story itself follows single mother Mel and her twelve-year-old daughter Kate. They are down on their luck and trying to escape Mel’s abusive ex when an unexpected inheritance seemingly solves all of their problems. Mel endeavors to not only rebuild a stable environment for Kate but also to restore the old, inherited, and beaten down hotel. When Kate goes missing one night after a disturbing discovery on the grounds, Mel fears the worst. Hayes has penned quite the thrilling tale with “Single Mother,” skillfully snatching up her readers and sending them racing down a twisted, winding path. While I did figure out a few of the reveals beforehand, I was altogether satisfied with how the story came together. Sarah’s character may have just been my favorite; at first, she was eerily unsettling, creeping around the hotel, but as her story came to fruition, I felt the heartbreak, fury, and finally the satisfaction in her ultimate breakthrough and resolve. I'd recommend this book to the many thriller fans out there; you won't want to miss this one! On another note, I'd like to mention that I enjoyed the author's letter at the end; it’s always interesting to find out the inspiration behind the written word. Many thanks to NetGalley, the author Samantha Hayes, and the publishers at Bookouture for my copy of this ebook. I have honestly and voluntarily reviewed this title.

  • Definitely recommend

    Mel is the single mom of Kate, and she is always having to find inventive ways to make ends meet. Her ex is in prison and she is terrified he will be out soon and try to contact her and Kate. When Mel receives a letter from a solicitor notifying her she won a huge inheritance that includes a small seaside hotel, it seems too good to be true. The only stipulation is that there is a permanent resident at the hotel who must be allowed to continue to live there. Mel and Kate pack everything up and make the move.....only to find out that there are some disturbing things going on at the hotel. The permanent resident. Miss Sarah, never speaks to anyone, human bones were found buried near the foundation of the hotel, and threatening messages are being left around the hotel. Mel has no idea where to turn, who to trust, or if anyone is really who they seem to be. Let me start by saying I am a big fan of this author's previous books. This one started out a little slow for me but about halfway through really picked up speed and then it was non-stop suspense through the last chapter. I definitely recommend this suspenseful read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Loved!!!!!

    My Review: I love, love, love this author so much!!!!!! When I saw she had a new book coming out I knew I had to read it. I’ve read so many books by Samantha Hayes and I’ve loved them all. There was never a bad one. This book was no exception to that. It kept me guessing all the way through. I loved that twisty ending. This book was about Melanie who was a single mother to a twelve year old and was down on her luck. She had miraculously inherited a hotel just in the nick of time. But strange things start happening at the hotel and then her daughter goes missing. Melanie had to figure out what’s going on and fast to save her daughter. What secrets did this hotel hold? Who gave her this hotel as she had no family? Who had a grudge against her and her daughter? You find this out and so much more. So I want to start out by saying how much I loved this book. I do want to warn readers I found it a bit slow paced in the very beginning. I know most books are slow to start as you are getting to know the characters but this was extremely slow but it definitely picks up by the middle of the book so don’t give up. It’s definitely worth it in the end. I loved all the characters and they worked well together. I found them all to be hiding secrets and when the truth finally came out there was an explosion of emotions. I liked the plot as well. Melanie was abandoned as a baby and didn’t know who would leave her such an extravagant gift like a hotel. It was fun watching her play detective to try and figure out what secrets were lurking behind the shadows. That ending was awesome. There were so many twists and turns. I didn’t know which direction I was heading in. It was like a winding road that was never ending. As you can see I loved this book for so many reasons. Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
