    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.

    Incredible

    Wow. I read this book in two nights....could not put it down! It was full of so much suspense, I found my heart racing through some parts wanting to know what was going to happen next. Megan's son was taken from her when he was 6 years old and 6 years later she received the call every mother would want to hear "they found him." I could go on and on reviewing this book but I do not want to give anything away. A mother's love is something like no other....pick up this book now and read it.

    Shocking

    I loved the original concept of this novel and found it a compelling read. Megan has her life destroyed when her ex husband disappeared with their 6 year old son Daniel, she has tried desperately to find her son to no avail however six years later her mysteriously appears at a police station and they are reunited. After six years apart though Daniels temperament has changed beyond recognition and Megan is scared for herself and her new family. Megan’s story reads very well, her concerns and fears about her son are very genuine and well conveyed, Daniel is harder to read but still well written. The story is a real page turner however I must confess I suspected (correctly) how the story was headed, that said it didn’t spoil my enjoyment as it really does read well from a parental perspective.

    A fab read

    Hesitation... Trepidation... Fear was what I felt as I turned the pages of this book. Parental kidnapping was the initial plot arc. Megan and Greg were divorced when Greg kidnapped the 6-year-old Daniel and disappeared. It took another 6 years for Daniel to come back, but... Who was the boy who had returned? They shared the DNA but Megan wasn't sure there was anything left of her sweet boy. She was scared now for her daughter Evie and husband Michael. Nicole Trope managed to combine emotions and suspense in this story, weaving them both together to make them shimmer on the pages of this book. I read this with my heart in my throat feeling all the emotions that Megan experienced with joy, sorrow, fear, and despair. How was a mother to reach a child who had been brainwashed to believing lies about her by the father? The story wrenched these emotions from my heart, but my brain was aware of the vein of danger that ran in the periphery of this book. A lot of Daniel's story had loopholes. What was he hiding? Snapshots of his life and Megan's were shown, written as chapters, giving me a wider understanding of how the mother and son coped with their loss in the intermittent 6 years. I guessed the twist, it was quite obvious, but that hardly deterred me from enjoying the winding road of the story. One of my midnight reads, I was so happy losing sleep over it!!

    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.
