A provocative novel of psychological suspense about two women locked in a desperate fight over a child each believes is rightfully hers   "Deliciously twisty and seriously dark . . . I couldn't put it down."--Natasha Bell, author of His Perfect Wife Libby needs a break. Three years ago her husband split, leaving her to raise their infant son Ethan alone as she struggled to launch her writing career. Now for the first time in years, things are looking up. She's just sold her first novel, and she and Ethan are going on a much-needed vacation. Everything seems to be going their way, so why can't she stop looking over her shoulder or panicking every time Ethan wanders out of view? Is it because of what happened when Ethan was born? Except Libby's never told anyone the full story of what happened, and there's no way anyone could find her and Ethan at a faraway resort . . . right? But three days into their vacation, Libby's fears prove justified. In a moment of inattention, Ethan wanders into an elevator before Libby can reach him. When the elevator stops and the doors open, Ethan is gone. Hotel security scours the building and finds no trace of him, but when CCTV footage is found of an adult finding the child wandering alone and leading him away by the hand, the police are called in. The search intensifies, a lost child case turning into a possible abduction. Hours later, a child is seen with a woman stepping through an emergency exit. Libby and the police track the woman down and corner her, but she refuses to release Ethan. Asked who she is, the woman replies: "I'm his mother." What follows is one of the most shocking, twist-y, and provocative works of psychological suspense ever written. A story of stolen identity, of surrogacy gone horribly wrong, and of two women whose insistence that each is the "real" mother puts them at deadly cross-purposes, Lost You is sure to be one of 2019's most buzzed-about novels. Praise for Lost You "An emotionally wrenching psychological thriller . . . The story unravels at an anxiety-inducing pace, and shocking twists appear around every corner."--Associated Press "Extremely binge-worthy, so suspense fans, definitely be on the lookout for this new release." --She Reads "The twists and turns are not only masterfully paced and layered but so is the emotional impact.  . . .  an adrenaline-pumping, anxiety-inducing thriller built around a core so sentimental it just might make you cry."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)… (lisätietoja)

Quick read about two mothers and how they are connected through a child.
Years earlier, Libby did a terrible thing, and she lives in fear of being discovered. While on vacation with her 3-year old son, she realizes that he is missing. She dreads that her past is catching up with her, and she is terrified of the consequences. When she comes face-to-face with Anna, she knows she is right, and now she has to try and save her son.
This is a fast paced novel, related to the desire to have a child, and the lengths you will take to make that dream a reality. ( )

This was a solid 3 star read for me. I really enjoyed 3/4 of this book but I felt a little unsatisfied with the ending which just wrapped up very quickly and it wasn't totally believable. The writing is not anything amazing but it was great "escape reading" and perfect for this busy time of year. I was very interested in the topic, which was the more "dark side" of paid surrogacy. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and their back stories and Beck (aka Stuart Neville) did a great job building up the suspense.

As the story went on each of the women became more desperate with their desire for the baby and this part was harder for me because I often felt most for the baby himself.... I enjoy domestic thrillers and think this would be a great beach read or one to discuss with friends because it has some very interesting talking points. ( )

To be honest, when I started reading this, I didn’t really know where this story was going. The story opens up with Libby and her son Ethan taking a trip to a Florida resort. Circumstances spin out of control when Ethan enters an open elevator and disappears in the resort. Security footage reveals he was taken and the hunt is on to find Ethan and his abductor before it is too late. On face value that by itself could have been a really interesting story just on that alone. That is where the story takes a different turn, and we flash back in time to meet Anna. A young woman, recently unemployed, who with few job opportunities accepts an opportunity to earn 75,000 dollars. The catch...she has to become a surrogate... and give her baby away to the adoptive family when the pregnancy is over. Not having many choices, she jumps in. As her pregnancy progresses, she finds the idea of turning her baby over a lot harder to swallow. Her decision to keep her baby sets off a firestorm that ultimately causes Libby and Anna’s paths to cross with deadly consequences. This is a really engaging story, I zipped right through it. There is a consuming sadness to this story as most of the characters are very negatively impacted, with few winners. Thank you to Netgalley for the copy in exchange for an honest review. ( )

This book starts out with a bang! It kept me reading just to find out what really happened. The ending is a little of a let down as it goes out with a whimper imho. All in all, a really good story with lots of layers. I will definitely be keeping my eye on this author.
I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley and the publisher and voluntarily chose to review it.

4.5 stars.

Lost You by Haylen Beck is an enthralling domestic mystery that is impossible to put down.

Life has not always been easy for Libby Reese, but she is finally in a good place. Her three year old son Ethan is the light of her life and she is about to become a published author. Despite a few misgivings, Libby decides to book a vacation for herself and Ethan. But their vacation in paradise goes terribly wrong when Ethan disappears inside their hotel. Who would want to take Ethan? And more importantly, will Libby locate her son before it is too late?

Libby and her now ex-husband Mason struggled for years to have a baby and she now is a devoted yet over-protective mom. She leads a solitary life which is just fine because she enjoys her own company. Libby and Ethan's vacation is off to a wonderful beginning when they are befriended by a couple of guests at the resort. Finally kicking back and relaxing, she is not quite as vigilant as she normally is. When Ethan vanishes after a moment of distraction, Libby is frantic to locate him. But why is she so reticent to answer Lieutenant Michal Cole's questions?

With a breathless cliffhanger in the present, the story goes back in time and presents a heartrending portrait of a couple desperately trying for a baby. Libby will do anything to fulfill her dream of motherhood even when Mason has doubts about their next step. But how does their decision in the past result in Ethan's possible kidnapping in the present?

Lost You is a brilliantly executed twist-filled mystery. The characters are surprisingly sympathetic in spite of their troubled lives and deep flaws. The storyline is completely engrossing and Haylen Beck builds the suspense with each jaw-dropping revelation. I absolutely loved and highly recommend this clever, multi-layered mystery to readers of the genre. ( )
