Baby Doll by Hollie Overton

Baby DollBaby Doll by Hollie Overton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lily has been held captive for the past eight years but now her captor has made a mistake and Lily is able to get free. While she was in captivity she had a daughter who is now six and Lily wants nothing more than to keep her daughter safe and return home to her family.

Showing up after eight years of being missing it’s not easy for Lily or her family to deal with the aftermath of the kidnapping. This is the story of what happens once Lily returns home to find her twin sister is now with Lily’s high school sweetheart and the man that had taken her hostage is a well known and respected man in society.

Baby Doll changes the view point all throughout the story between Lily, her mother Eve, her sister Abby and her former captor Rick. Returning home after eight years when her family never expected to ever see her again brings a lot of issues into Lily’s family. There was a lot of drama all throughout as the characters do their best to overcome a really horrific situation.

I found myself completely engaged in this story rather early on even though a part of me questioned the characterization in this read. Lily who had been held captive really seemed to be the strongest character in the book but I suppose there’s no right way for anyone to react to something horrible. I gave up questioning the personalities fairly quickly though and just sat back and enjoyed the ride through the twists and turns and ended up really liking the story in the end.

Overall, this one is really more drama based than thriller which wasn’t what I expected but still good writing and enjoyed the read.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    • Thanks! I think if anyone wants a good “thriller” they may be disappointed since the MC makes her escape in the opening pages but I got hooked on the drama of her returning home to her somewhat dysfunctional family and leading up to the trial. LOL

    • Thanks! I hate when that happens and they don’t tell you one way or another, I’d rather just get the decline so I know to definitely look for it elsewhere if I really want it.
