Publisher's Summary

A heart-stopping emotional thriller with a breathtaking twist from the best-selling author of The Happy Couple Samantha Hayes.

January 1992. A baby girl is left alone for a moment. Long enough for a mother to dash into a shop. Long enough for a child to be taken. 

Thirteen years later, solicitor Robert Knight's stepdaughter wins a place at a prestigious London school for the gifted. The only puzzle is his wife Erin's reaction. Why is she so reluctant to let Ruby go? Doesn't she want what's best for her? As Erin grows more evasive, Robert can't help but feel she has something to hide and when he stumbles on mysterious letters, he discovers she has been lying to him. Somewhere in his wife's past lies a secret; a shocking secret that threatens to destroy everything....

Thrilling and gripping, Blood Ties will make you ask what dark secrets lie behind your neighbours' closed doors. Perfect listening for anyone who loved The Wife Between Us, The Girl on the Train or Gone Girl.

long winded

I really had high hopes for this book. started off great then descended rapidly into unbeliebale storyline and weird behaviour. Robert being a first class lawyer handled the situation bizarrely especially when he took Ruby to Northampton. Dont want to give too much away. I was left feeling a tad confused about such a jumbled storyline. Such a shame

Great book!

Really enjoyed this book. What a surprise ending but a very good one. The book was gripping, believable and covered so many different topics. Really enjoyed it. Great narration too. Highly recommend it if you like a book with an unpredictable ending!

Oh Dear!

The author clearly has no time for the working classes. They really are the dregs as far as this author is concerned. The poor and downtrodden are all the villains in this story. If you are poor you are also unwashed and without morals.

Another superb book!

So many twists in this book, and all excellently penned. This is my third book by this author, and I will definitely by reading more. A brilliant storyline, read very well. I highly recommend this book.

Good story but very slow

This was a good story with great characters but it was probably 4 hours longer than it needed to be. It was a slog to keep myself interested enough to finish the book.
