I think it wasn't right for me. I couldn't turn off my critical mind and go with the story.  Rebecca Gray slowly went blind in her mid twenties. About twelve years later, she is a new widow, whose mom has just died, and the mother of a three month old baby boy. The book opens with Bec making her daily trek to the park where she meets with other mothers and babies. She knows that someone is stalking her, she can feel it. Luckily she has a photographic memory, which serves her well, making every path she has traveled a memory that she can follow, the next time she covers that ground.  Once Bec gets home, she knows that someone is or has been in her house. Later she bumps into things, in her house, that have been moved from the place she had put them. Is extreme grief and sleep deprivations causing Bec to experience out of control paranoia? Despite her fears and certainty that things are not right, that someone is following her and entering her home, Bec refuses anything but token help. Rather than let others check out her house, she does it herself, sticking her cane in closets and calling out to the stalker. When friends offer to walk her home or give her a ride, she refuses. Finally, after an outing in the park, when she faints, and later recovers, she is sure that her three month old son has been swapped with another baby. Throughout the next few days, when Bec gets frustrated, angry, tired of waiting for the police to practice the protocol for this type of incident, Bec will grab the baby (or not) and her cane and stomp out of the house, night or day. She stomps to the park to "search" for clues, or around the neighborhood, or sometimes even just stomps out of the house and gets no farther. Bec is a strong woman to have navigated the troublesome events of her life so well, to this point, but I think her acts of stubbornness and impetuousness didn't sit well with me. It's one thing to go charging (literally) blindly around town, but she doesn't seem to have the immediate welfare of the baby that is with her, in mind.  Publication date: August 11, 2020. Thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for this ARC.

    WOW! This book was SO addictive, could not tear myself away! OK before I get to the book I want to share something about myself that many of you don’t know. Like the MC in this book Rebecca I also have a degenerative eye disease. I have been losing my sight slowly since the age of 10, I am now 50 so it’s been a slow process. Also like Becca I am a mother, but when my kids were babies my vision was not as bad as hers in this book. The reason I share this is because it is very rare that you read a WOW!

Like the MC in this book Rebecca I also have a degenerative eye disease. I have been losing my sight slowly since the age of 10, I am now 50 so it’s been a slow process. Also like Becca I am a mother, but when my kids were babies my vision was not as bad as hers in this book. The reason I share this is because it is very rare that you read about a main character who is blind and if there is a blind character they are usually NOT accurately depicted. Rea Frey really did her homework and I applaud her depiction of Rebecca in this book. Like Becca I can be stubborn and probably frustrating to those that care about me when it comes to help. I appreciated how strong and independent she was, Blind/visually impaired people are able to do much more than people give them credit for. Now I do have to say it wasn’t perfect. There were a few little technical things that I did notice, but only somebody who deals with voiceover technology on their phone will notice that. Also before I get to the book *finally* I just want to clarify some things after reading some reviews. When a blind mother goes home from the hospital with her baby they don’t send a social worker, they are completely capable of taking care of their child just like you. Also just because someone’s lying doesn’t mean they’re helpless, they’re as unlikely to ask for help as anyone else, maybe even less so. Additionally the blind/visually impaired have an unemployment rate of 70% and on average get $767 a month disability from the government. I just have to say it is a shame we do not take better care of the disabled population in this country. *steps off soapbox* This was a tension filled domestic thriller that gripped me from the very first page. My heart was racing as Becca navigated through the park thinking someone was following her. My heart broke when Becca discovered the baby in the crib was not hers. And I was frustrated right alongside Becca as everyone didn’t seem to believe that this was not her baby. This is a book about the strength of the mother child Bon and Becca was not the only mom whose story was told in the book. We also get the perspective of Crystal... becca and Crystal met at grief group having both lost their husbands within the past year. Crystal is the mother to a precocious 10-year-old daughter. Crystal is a good friend to Rebecca, but Crystal is hiding something. The tension was seriously ramped up the entire book. I needed Becca to be believed and her baby to be found. I also needed to know what in the world Crystal was hiding. Not sure if I’d called this a thriller or not but I was definitely riveted! The audio was narrated by Samantha Desz Who did a stellar job of tightening the tension in the story. An addictive story with an ending I’m still thinking about.

This book may rock your world and break your heart at the same time! This story wrenched, ached and hurt my heart deeply. Rebecca (Bec) Gray, widowed mother suffers from degenerative disease and loses her vision, and the darkness grows and seeps through her life, slowly destroys everything she worked on. And she has responsibility of her three month old baby Jackson. She needs to accept more help! How can she handle all those burdens and move on her life? And the worst part starts one day at the park, she thinks her baby replaced with other one but when she informs the authorities, nobody believes her. But a mother always knows. This is instinctive! When you give birth to a child you share a sacred place from your soul and your heart with him/her. This unique bond will always stay between a mother and child. Does Bec suffer from another psychological illness called Capgras delusion (Cotard’s syndrome): people who experience it will have an irrational belief that someone they know or recognize has been replaced by an imposter. It can be associated with brain injury, schizophrenia and Alzheimer. But Rebecca only loses her vision not also her mind! At least we want to believe in her story and root for her from the beginning. We’re also introduced with Crystal who lives a few blocks away, recently widowed, raising her ten year old daughter Savi and their nanny Pam. She and Bec form a genuine friendship at their grief support meetings. She is the other narrator of the story, suffering from depression and loss. She and daughter try to help Rebecca, supporting her even though they seem suspicious about her declarations about her replaced son story. I liked the idea of the plot and gripping, depressing, dark atmosphere of the story but there are so much repeating which ruined the building mystery a little. The ending was still great but some parts are predictable. It was still emotional, terrifying, tear jerking, provocative and effective story about grief, friendship, loneliness, motherhood, depression. The conclusion was satisfying and writing was riveting. I cut some points for plot holes and illogical parts (Forensics may solve the problem by blood test to make sure Rebecca was not delusional.) and repeating drama. But I’m still rounding up 3.5 stars to 4 because of the promising plot and great outcome of the story. I’m looking forward to read more books of the author. Special thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for sharing this heart wrenching ARC with me in exchange my honest review.

    ***HAPPY PUBLICATION DAY*** The premise of a baby being switched and a mother believing that this is not her child, is not a new one. In this novel, what makes it unique, is that the mother in question is blind. Rebecca has certainly been through a lot.

In this novel, what makes it unique, is that the mother in question is blind. Rebecca has certainly been through a lot. Her husband died before Jackson was born and she was relying heavily on support from her mother. A few months later, her mother passes away. So we have a mother who is losing her vision, is almost totally blind, and is trying to care for a newborn by herself. Rebecca has been struggling but because she is living in her mother’s house, she knows her way around quite well. She has even been going to a mother’s support group in a nearby park. On one such meeting Bec has a fainting spell, falls and hits her head. She is hurt, bleeding, but refuses to go to the hospital. Her friend Crystal insists that she stay at her home for a few hours and get some sleep. O.K., that is the primary set up. What happens after is the main storyline. When she goes to pick up Jackson from his crib, she knows it is not her baby. Of course any mother would know her own baby, even one who is blind. We know every inch of our baby’s body even though he may look similar to another baby. Each baby’s cry is unique, their smell, their feel! From here we follow Bec’s efforts to get someone to believe her that her baby has been swapped for another. Even her friends doubt her because they aren’t quite sure that the baby isn’t Jackson.(Quite hard to believe that these friends can’t tell the difference in her baby??) She finally gets support from her ex boyfriend who is a homicide detective. I’m not going to go through the story because that would be a spoiler. I didn't feel the empathy, etc that I should have felt for Bec. Her constantly resisting help when she so obviously needed it didn't make sense. I would think in real life there would have been social workers involved and help would have been recommended. Her ex boyfriend suddenly is around to help her identify the baby who is not Jackson using the newest technology, he is a homicide detective. I think a simple blood test would have given her the proof that she needed. The ending was too perfect and didn’t tie up a lot of loose threads that were introduced. Examples, her fainting spells, because there was more than one; the fact that she thought she was being followed; the over the top actions of a troubled child. This novel is a quick read and I would almost categorize it more as chick-lit than mystery/thriller. There is a mystery but the main focus of the story is, can a blind mother care for her newborn alone with no help? I received an ARC of this novel from the publisher through Edelweiss. The novel is set to publish on August 11, 2020

    Imagine that you have slowly lost your sight, then your husband and on top of it all, your baby is crying, you go to pick him up to comfort him, but the baby you are holding is not yours! Not only that, no one believes you!

Friends think you are stressed out, exhausted, etc. But you know your own child, you have been feeling as if someone has been following you, things have been moved in your home, etc. Bec goes through a string of emotions when she discovers that her son is gone. No one believes her and she goes on a mission to find out the truth and naturally to find her missing son. This was slow to start for me, but then picked up as Bec and her friend Crystal's friendship and stories were told. I flipped back and forth with my feelings for the book. Bec's friends all thought she needed more help, she was losing her sight, lost her husband and her mother in a close amount of time and was raising a newborn. Who would not need help in that situation? But at the same time, she was resilient and showed determination and strength. Plus, she wanted her son back. Her Friends and ex-boyfriend, although skeptical do try to help. Did things get a little repetitive? Yes, but there was the emotional aspect of the book, the feelings expressed, and the search for her missing son. With, this is one that I can say that I liked but did not love. I cannot quite put my finger on what would have made me enjoy this book more, besides not feeling very connected to the characters. It is still enjoyable, and I look forward to more books by this Author. I am teetering between a 3 and a 3.5 for this one. Thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All the thoughts and opinions are my own.

The only drawbacks I found were the red herrings that really don't lead anywhere, but tend to lend credence to the doubters in Rebecca's life.

    Thanks to NetGalley and St Martin's Press for an egalley in exchange for an honest review. Dear Rea Frey, how is it that you manage year after year to put your characters and me in such tense situations and I always come back for another?

Dear Rea Frey, how is it that you manage year after year to put your characters and me in such tense situations and I always come back for another? All I can say is keeping waving that magic spell because I fell for this one instantly. We have widow Rebecca(Bec) who is raising her infant son all by herself after losing her husband and mother. If that's not enough heartache for one person to go through, Rebecca is also blind and has a very stubborn streak in allowing others to help her. However, Rebecca's life is about to be turned upside down, even more, when something happens to her son. Then we have Rebecca's friend Crystal, also a widow, raising a tween daughter on her own, dealing with friction from her daughter's nanny and having a difficult time fitting in with the other moms in the neighborhood( except for Rebecca). But will Crystal be there in Rebecca's time of need? My thoughts: Although I had a sensation that I knew where this story was headed, I still enjoyed it enough to linger on my balcony this afternoon. I will leave it to other readers to raise doubts as to the plausibility of the storyline, but I was happy to bask in the fictional world of Rea Frey once again.

This was quite the tale about a young mother who faces insurmountable obstacles, for you see, she is blind, has recently lost both her husband and mother, and has a new baby to care for. Rebecca Gray, has certainly had a lot stacked against her, but through a group of wealthy neighborhood friends she seems to have formed friendship alliances which are helping her through this tough time. Then the unthinkable happens and brings into question whether Rebecca is competent and whether a mother really does know her child. Up against those who disbelieve her, Rebecca seems to wage a one woman war against what she holds in her heart to be true. Then an old flame shows up and the struggle is to get him to believe that what Rebecca is experiencing isn't the result of trauma, but one of truth. This was an interesting tale, one which had many of those needed twists and turns we all seem to expect in our thrillers. There were some slightly farfetched occurrences, but overall this story held my attention and made for a fine escapism book from the trials of today. Thank you to Rea Frey, St Martin's Griffin, and NetGalley for a copy of this book to be released in August of 2020.

Once an accomplished musician she has gradually been losing her sight and is now almost blind. To make matters worse she lost her husband almost a year ago and then her mother a few weeks ago. Still grieving both of them, she is slowly adapting to life on her own back in her mother's house, where she grew up, in suburban Chicago. She has made friends with other women with babies in the neighborhood park and another single mother who recently lost her husband has been helping her update the interior of her house. However, life is about to get worse for Bec after she falls and bumps her head in the park, she finds herself in a living nightmare, convinced the baby in her stroller is not her son. None of her friends or the police believe her, after all the baby looks like Jackson as far as her friends can tell, and think she's just confused and needs a good night's sleep. This is a tense and emotionally charged read that's hard to put down as Bec struggles to get someone to listen to her. Rea Frey has artfully described the challenges that come with being blind and learning to not only navigate the streets and city on your own but to also look after a baby you can barely see. Then there is the question of whether Bec is delusional and suffering from a psychological syndrome or why anyone would want to swap a perfectly healthy baby for another.

The story was far-fetched and the way much of the plot played out, I basically had to suspend disbelief the entire time. But what annoyed me most was actually the main character Bec (short for Rebecca), who was so overwritten as a character that I ended up tremendously disliking her (even though I think the intention was, based on the way she was portrayed, the reader is supposed to sympathize with her). Bec is diagnosed with a condition that causes her to gradually lose her eyesight, yet despite that, she is happy and intent on living a blissful life with her wonderful, supportive husband and their soon-to-be born baby. But then Bec’s husband dies in a horrible accident and instantly her world is shattered. Unable to bear living in the same house without her husband, Bec decides to move in with her mother, who still lives in the house in Elmhurst that she grew up in. Shortly after her son Jackson is born however, tragedy strikes again, as Bec’s mother dies unexpectedly, and with no other living relatives to speak of, Bec is left to take care of her infant son Jackson by herself. Fortunately, Bec has a group of friends and neighbors – other moms in their small, close-knit community – who understand what she is going through and are more than willing to help her out. The problem is, Bec is fiercely stubborn (probably “obsessively stubborn” is a more accurate term) and basically refuses any type of help from anyone — in fact, she is so adverse to people even offering to help her that she often goes out of her way to demonstrate she is perfectly capable on her own, even if it involves lying about predicaments that she finds herself in. To me though, it’s not just the fact that Bec constantly and deliberately pushes away all help of any kind that annoyed me, but also the aggressively defiant way she refuses the help, almost as though she is insulted by the notion that other people are offering to help her. It defies logic and quite frankly, I found her behavior tremendously offensive. One example (out of many) that especially frustrated me was when she’s at the park with the other moms and she passes out briefly (likely from sleep deprivation and exhaustion, which she was already complaining about early on in the story) — she then falls and hits her head and of course, her friends rush to help her, but she refuses their efforts to help her up, refuses to let them tend to her wound, refuses to let them accompany her home. Instead, she ridiculously insists that she has no problem walking home by herself in that condition (with her baby in tow) and to prove it, she charges forward to grab the stroller and head home, except that her friends intervene and force her to let them accompany her (they actually had to get on either side of her and drag her with them!). Another example — the stairs in her old house, which have broken steps that caused her to trip and nearly fall multiple times, yet doesn’t get it fixed because she either doesn’t have time (overexertion with doing everything herself) or doesn’t want to ask others to help her fix it. So instead, it’s one excuse after another — she knows her way around the house well enough to avoid the broken step, and is very careful on the stairs when carrying the baby (indeed, the 2 times — maybe more, I just stopped paying attention after awhile — that she actually fell down the stairs, she wasn’t holding the baby, which I guess is justification that she’s in the right? And don’t get me started on the “drama for drama’s sake” plot point of having Bec – and other characters -- repeatedly trip / nearly fall / actually fall down the stairs multiple times over the course of the entire story – why not just get the darn stairs fixed!?). I think one of the reasons why Bec’s stubbornness irked me as much as it did was because of the impact of her actions and behavior on her baby, which she seemed completely oblivious to. Decisions such as choosing to take her son with her everywhere she went Instead of hiring a nanny or babysitter or even having her friends help watch the baby for a few hours so she could run errands or whatnot, were irrational, especially when a few of those situations actually put the baby in danger (like that one scene where she had the baby in a carrier strapped to her chest and insisted on going to the park all alone late at night to poke around, even though she was given specific instructions to stay home). This kind of nonsensical behavior from Bec basically permeates the entire story. I actually had a lot more issues with the story (particularly as it relates to Bec’s interactions with her ex Jake and also the local police), but I can’t bring those up without giving away the plot, so I won’t list those at this time. Overall though, as I mentioned earlier, the entire story felt very unrealistic to me. I mean, I get the message the author is trying to send here — the blind young widow who rises above her circumstances in spite of tragedy, who should be admired for her strength, courage, and unfaltering devotion to her infant son — but execution-wise, it went the wrong way in my opinion. I think most of us would agree that asking for help when it’s warranted (I.e.: when one is injured, as an example), is not normally viewed as a sign of weakness, so for Bec to be portrayed to such extreme, just doesn’t make much sense. One thing I do want to mention — this is actually the third book I’ve read by Rea Frey and I actually liked both of her previous novels quite a lot, so I’m a bit disappointed (and surprised) that this one fell so far off the mark for me. With that said, it hasn’t put me off from reading her works in the future, though I do hope that I will take to her next book much better. Received paper ARC directly from publisher (St. Martin’s Griffin).

    Rebecca (Bec) Gray has made so many adjustments in the last year. Her husband died in an accident before she gave birth to their son, Jackson.

Her mother recently succumbed to cancer and she’s now alone to care for her three-month old son who is the center of her life. But recently, Bec’s suffering from extreme anxiety, particularly around Jackson, imagining something happening to him. She’s Rebecca (Bec) Gray has made so many adjustments in the last year.

One of the remarkable aspects of this story is being able to “see” the world through the eyes of someone with sight impairment. I’ve often speculated about how the sightless manage the mundane daily tasks and that was completely answered through Bec’s routines. She has a system, mostly using step counts to augment her own exceptional memory skills. But what was abundantly clear was how she identifies her own child. The descriptions and details leading up to his going missing were painstakingly outlined, even to the point where it slowed the pace of the story to a crawl. If you can hang in there, there’s a nice payoff because, unlike the people around her, there was no ambiguity in my mind about whether or not she was mistaken because I had been utterly convinced she could “see” her child. I enjoyed the story after it shifted to the search for Jackson. It became a layered one about Bec’s efforts to get people to believe her, including law enforcement and her close friends, and following the clues to figure out the who, when and how of Jackson’s disappearance. Magnifying the situation was the fact her baby had been swapped with another so who was this child and why he was exchanged? It became a page turner where I then couldn’t put the book down. The resolution wasn’t anything like I’d imagined but it was consistent with the characterizations leading up to the climax. It was a slow burn but eventually got there, taking the time to develop Bec’s world so I could see it through her “eyes.” 3.5 stars Posted on Blue Mood Café (Thanks to St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley for my complimentary copy.

This domestic thriller is satisfying and addictive.

    This book was slow to start and middle ways it picked up and I could not turn the pages fast enough. This is my third book by Frey and she gets better with every book. I loved the twists and my heart pounded so hard many times while reading this book. I highly recommend this 4 star book. The Mary Reader received this book from the publisher for review.

While reading this on my Kindle, I kept looking at the percentage read indicator, and wondering when something would actually start happening. Rebecca ‘Bec’ Gray is a new mother to three-month old Jackson. She is almost totally blind. She lost her husband and her mother within the last year. This lady has a lot on her plate! With all that going on, I was at about the 20% completion mark that I finally felt like we were over the character introductions, and the detailed descriptions of widow’s grief that both she and her friend Crystal were suffering. Bec starts to hear footsteps following her as she walks to the park. She finds her front door open upon her return from the park, and the baby’s play crib moved to the center of her living room. However, she still doubts what she has encountered and primarily passes it off as sleep deprivation. After one incident when she thought she heard footsteps in the house, she searches the house by herself, using a coat hanger to jab into the corners of rooms to find out if anyone was hiding there. Her friends at her new mother’s group and her grief group are not very helpful. In my opinion, they were too quick to pass off the strange occurrences as sleep deprivation also. After fainting and hitting her head, Bec agrees to rest at a friend’s house for a few hours. When Bec goes to check on Jackson after her rest, she is horrified to discover that the baby boy in the crib is not her Jackson. She has a hard time convincing anyone of the baby swap. Then the to-ing and fro-ing started as Bec tries to find Jackson. It sounds like a great plot, but for some reason that I cannot exactly put my finger on I just did not feel too connected to any of the characters. Rebecca started to annoy pretty quickly. Internally I was shouting at her to trust herself and get more help. The book’s ending was too simply too neat. However, as I read the last page, I still had many unresolved questions about other unresolved incidents in the book. While this is a solid read, it is not a stellar read in my opinion. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. These are my honest thoughts.

When Rebecca absolutely knows this is not her baby, she goes to all lengths to find him even though no one believes her because they see no difference between this baby and Jackson. Rebecca’s friends do help her, but they can’t be there 24/7 if she needs help. Besides all these things happening and her friends seeming to help, they appear to be a bit shady along with the babysitter of one of the friends. I actually didn’t like or trust any of Rebecca’s friends. They just seemed to not be sincere, and they all seemed to have problems of some sort and secrets. I felt something sinister as I read, and as odd things happened, and as authorities reacted, the tension increased and I believed her that this baby was not her son. UNTIL I FIND YOU has a tension-filled build up, and you can feel the dread and fear Rebecca has. The ending is a big surprise. Those readers who enjoy thrillers and solving mysteries, will not be disappointed. 5/5 This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Expected publication date: August 11, 2020 Rebecca Gray has suffered immeasurable lost in the last year. After her husband, Chris, passed away, Rebecca started to lose her sight, thanks to a degenerative eye disease. Almost totally blind, Rebecca is hit with another loss when her beloved mother passes away. Left with only the house she grew up with, and her three month old son, Jackson, Rebecca is slowly learning how to rebuild her life. While spending time with her son and her “Mom group” friends at an outdoor park, Rebecca passes out. When she wakes up, she is embarrassed and ashamed but on top of that she notices one thing- Jackson’s stroller is there, and there is a baby in it, but it isn’t Jackson. Due to her limited sight, Rebecca cannot get anyone to believe that the baby was switched out of his stroller. Finally, with the help of her detective ex-boyfriend, Jake, Rebecca begins to unravel what really happened to her son. “Until I Find You” is the third book by Rea Frey that I have read. All of her novels have been pulse-pounding, gripping suspense novels full of family drama and powerful relationships. This one is no different and in fact, Rebecca’s near-blindness helps a reader bond with her even more. Starting completely over, Rebecca must face the challenges of first-time motherhood in a world that she can no longer see. Her bravery and dedication to her son is admirable, and highlights the bonds of a mother-child relationship. This novel started off slow, with a lot of characters thrown at you all at once (all the females in the Mom group were difficult to differentiate at first, as they all had similar personalities and common enough names), but once the story got rolling, and every character find the right slot, something clicked. The plot became un-put-downable and absolutely gripping. As the ending drew near, I was able to guess the “who” but when the “why” came, it completely knocked me off my feet. I did not expect the final twist in this plot, and I really appreciated how Frey builds up to it, making the ending unpredictable yet still believable. Well told and high intensity, Frey delivers with “Until I Find You”. It’s a novel that has a unique plot in an over-done genre, and I’m happy to see it. I look forward to Frey’s next work with anticipation.

And honestly I don't know if I would have been on the edge of my seat like I was if I had already known about these things beforehand. The main narrator is Rebecca/Bec (1st person POV). She has a disability. And I found that part of the book to be outstanding. It added so much to the story. And made everything about this book so much more powerful. The story takes place in a suburb outside of Chicago. Bec plays the cello and is a music teacher. She has a 3 month old son, Jackson. The second narrator is Crystal (3rd person POV). Even though Crystal is written in the 3rd person I think that the author did an amazing job. The POV is written so seamlessly that the reader does not even notice that some of the chapters are not in 1st person. Crystal is an interior designer and has a young daughter. There are things happening to Bec. And honestly I was scared and terrified. And I was wondering what was happening to her. The author manages to take some things that would be hard to read ... but she makes the story absolutely riveting. For most of this book I could not turn the pages fast enough. The book has some romance. Although it's not the main focus of the book. The ending is everything, especially in a thriller. And that is the only part of the book that I am not sure about. It wasn't a bad ending. But I think that I would have preferred something different. I was mesmerized by much of this book. And the reveal was interesting. But I just wanted more. But overall this was a really good thriller and I could not put this book down. Thanks to netgalley and St. Martin's Press for allowing me to read this book.

If that isn't enough, Bec's baby disappears, but she isn't believed. C'mon, mother's intuition, right? It seems like(in my unprofessional opinion) that if one of your senses is taken away that the other senses are overly sensitive. Maybe that's bs, but maybe that's why I fell for this storyline and loved it. Plus, Bec was a believable character. I was flipping pages so fast to get to the conclusion of this latest novel by Ms. Frey. Thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for the arc.

    I initially found it quite hard to believe that blind mother Bec’s friends couldn’t see that her baby was swapped with another, yet I carried on and glad I did. The twists and ratcheting tension kept me on my toes and I liked Frey’s cast of characters. I thought I knew where this story was going but then questioned myself time and again. An enjoyable read in which I became emotionally connected. Thanks to St. Martin’s Press for the ARC in exchange for my honest review.

One day she believes Jackson has been replaced by a different baby. No one believes her. Not her friends. Not her former lover. Not the police. Bec knows her son and he is not the baby in Jackson’s crib. She’ll stop at nothing to find him. A few streets away, Crystal, also recently lost her husband unexpectedly. She bonds with Rebecca in a grief support group and tries to help the new mom while managing her difficult ten-year-old daughter. I couldn’t imagine going blind and having to protect myself when out in public, let alone be responsible for a newborn. More than once I was curious why Bec didn’t put her son’s welfare ahead of her desire for independence when she thought she was being followed or that her house had been breached. I had a hard time putting myself in her shoes because I’d accept all the help offered. Capgras syndrome is a psychological/neurological disorder where people believed a loved one has been replaced with an imposter. Though relatively rare and most often occurring in dementia patients, I wondered if the syndromes causing Bec’s blindness could have affected the neuropathways that can sometimes cause the disorder. I was surprised none of the professionals suggested that. I also wondered why professionals didn’t do a blood test for DNA, these days DNA doesn’t take long to process. Additionally, certain blood types can’t produce other blood types, so in some cases maternity could have been quickly dismissed. UNTIL I FIND YOU starts slowly and feels a bit repetitive until Jackson’s (possible) disappearance. I was initially more interested in Crystal’s chapters, curious why she employed a nanny who seemed to triangulate mom and daughter. Young Savi ran that household, which was never addressed. Crystal chalked the behavior up to grief, but never set limits. Rea Frey created lots of red herrings, very possible suspects if Jackson had been switched. I assumed he had been, as the book would probably be less interesting in the end, but I was never really sure until the end of the book. UNTIL I FIND YOU is a great choice for mystery, thriller and women’s fiction readers and would also make a good beach read.

This book not only blew me away but made me uncomfortable in the best of ways. As a mother myself, I was literally on edge of my seat from start to finish. I literally CANNOT imagine. This novel was emotional and nerve-wracking and played on one of my biggest fears. I would absolutely loose my shit if one of my children were taken! And on top of that to be blind when sight would easily resolve this strife is INSANE! It was also refreshing to read a thriller that felt relatable, I was actually able to connect with its main character for once. Don't get me wrong I will always be a sucker for the cheating spouse, murder your BFF, someone is peeping in my window type thriller, but those things feel like fantasy in my world. Could they happen? Sure. Likely? Not really.. AHH the wonders of fiction. BUT the truth is that children DO get taken, more than any parent would like to admit. And for that reason this book was bloody brilliant and distressing. Everything uncomfortable about it aside, this book also gifts us something else. It gifts us a reminder of the unbreakable and powerful bond between a mother and her children. Until I find you is a definite must read. If this book wasn't on your radar before now, I highly recommend that you remedy that! I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Frey has mastered writing such well-developed characters that are infused with emotion so strong you can't help but feel it too while you're reading.  The main female lead protagonist, Rebecca Gray (Bec) has lost her vision after battling a degenerative eye disease, she has recently lost her mother and husband leaving her alone with her new baby to navigate this world as a new mother without her husband. One afternoon, Bec faints and when she wakes up, she discovers that someone swapped her baby.  Of course no one believes her and thinks that she is just under tremendous stress with all that has gone on recently but Bec is adamant that her son has been swapped and she will stop at nothing to find him. I love how Frey developed Rebecca's character to what she was and I applaud her on the research she must have done to trust perfect this character, which she did.  I love her writing and her ability to create very real characters with real emotion.   This was an easy read for me because I am a big fan of Frey's writing and already look forward to reading what she comes out with next. If you are a fan of domestic drama and are looking for a quick read then pick up a copy of this book when it releases on August 11, you will not be disappointed.
