Some Other Child

Sharon Buchbinder delves into old family secrets and spins a layered mystery that continues to surprise until the very end. Sarah Wright is a complex character, she is a mixture of caretaker and child and we get to know her at one of her most trying and vulnerable times. She is at times weak and at other times obnoxious but yet she never comes across as unlikable. She is any woman and her vulnerability and strength make her an ideal heroine. I enjoyed the fact that there were so many interconnected pieces to this puzzle and that Sarah had no idea how everything fit together until the end. I love my mysteries with a little romance and was happy to see Dan come back into her life. He comes across as a solid presence and his ability to appear just when he is needed is outstanding. The setting was good and the details at the hospital made me feel as if I were right there with my very own security badge walking the corridors. This was a solid mystery and made for an entertaining read. I will keep my eye out for this author’s next offering.


When Sarah Wright comes back home to take care of her injured alcoholic mother she doesn’t realize that a year later she will face even tougher challenges after her mother is injured again. If that isn’t enough her beloved aunt goes missing, but not before trying to reunite Sarah with the love she left behind. When Dan Rosen appears back in her life it’s a good thing because everything else keeps getting worse and worse for Sarah. She’ll need to uncover old family secrets and find the real bad guys before even thinking about her own happily-ever-after.
