Reviews for Searching For Sophie

Searching For Sophie - Fallen Angel Reviews

Searching for Sophie is a gut-wrenching story that grabs you by the heart and twists until the reader is completely spellbound. The way Melanie explains giving birth then turning the child over for adoption is told so lovingly that the reader is moved by the events. I found Kieran to be compassionate and caring, with a huge heart. He may appear tough inside and out, but he does have his moments where he can be a cuddly bear. I like the vulnerability that Rachel Brimble extends to Kieran. She creates characters that spring to life. They all show a great deal of emotion and the character of the kidnapper is one that chilled me to the bone. This engaging read takes the reader by storm with all the intense action, great plot, wonderful dialogue, and a cast that takes hold of the reader, this story still makes my head spin.

Searching For Sophie - The Romance Studio

Rachel Brimble writes like a pro even though this is her first novel. She builds the suspense well, hinting along the way at who the villain may be. But she gives us two choices, either of whom could have done it. Means, motive and opportunity are well constructed for both. Kieran and Melanie seem to blow hot and cold, not sure what they want from one another. Sophie is a brave little girl with a lot of spunk. Ms. Evelyn and Bridget, Melanie's mother, add some flavor to the story as the kind of women we don't want to work with or be related to!

I think Ms. Brimble does a great job letting us get into the mind of a birth mother who has been forced to give her child up and the dreams of the child herself. The author builds her stories well, keeping me interested and loving it from first page to last. I can’t wait to read more from her in the future.

Overall rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
