I don’t think you can never judge Tess Stimson’s novels by their cover. What looks like is going to be a light-hearted, typical, chick-lit book actually deals with some quite serious and, at times, heavy going issues. That’s not to say it isn’t enjoyable and does have light moments but be prepared for a dark side to the purple-pastille cover.

If you like Tess Stimson you might also like to read books by Chris Manby, Jane Fallon and Adele Parks.


The Cradle Snatcher by Tess Stimson

Clare Elias has always known the risks of being married to a rich, handsome, younger man like Marc. But when she gives birth to two gorgeous babies, she discovers motherhood isn’t quite the cinch she’d expected, and Marc is better with them than she is. Desperate to regain her independence running a successful chain of boutique flower shops, Clare hires Jenna, a confident, efficient nanny keen to escape a relationship that is going horribly wrong.

Before too long, a deadly rivalry emerges, and as events spiral out of control, Clare finds herself forced to make wrenching decisions about love, loyalty and motherhood.
