Book Review: She’s Mine by A.A. Chaudhuri

Secrets can destroy you. Especially a big one like this.


Twenty years ago, Christine Donovan took a call she should have ignored while shopping. In those few seconds while her back was turned, her toddler, Heidi, was kidnapped. She’s never been seen again.

Despite having two other children with husband Greg, Christine remains guilt-stricken that her neglect caused her child to be stolen, while haunted by a secret that consumes her.

Just as she takes measures to finally heal, a note is posted through her door, with the words she has always longed to hear: Heidi isn’t dead.

Christine might finally get the answers she craves – but what she doesn’t know is that finding her daughter will uncover dark secrets close to home.

In seeking the truth, Christine might destroy everything that she loves … so how far is she willing to go to find Heidi?


The characters are awful people, the storyline is dark, and the ending is completely twisted. The makings of a perfect book.

I went into She’s Mine expecting a decent read but nothing too original. I’m glad I was proved wrong. I’m not sure I’ve ever read a book like this. The author held no bounds when unveiling twists your eyes won’t believe you have read. And the best part? You won’t really feel sorry for any of the characters because they are all deplorable.

She’s Mine is also probably the first book I’ve read with multiple first-person narratives that really works. Some characters narrate for a lot of the book, others turn up for just a couple of chapters. However, each chapter is exactly how it’s meant to be.

Trust me on this one and pick up a copy of She’s Mine here.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
