Three damaged women scarred emotionally and physically from their past. Three individual battles to fight: Beth's friends meant everything to her. Unlike all of the others who claimed they cared, she knew differently. Betrayal and pain became her every day life but they were always there, protecting her from the evils which followed her every move. Letting them go would be so incredibly difficult, but Beth knew that despite their pleas, she had to destroy them. All Lizzie had ever wanted was to be Mummy’s little angel but the nightmares continue to haunt her, tormenting her mind and creating the all-familiar rage within the confines of her soul. Would she ever find the strength to confront the cause and lead a normal life once again? How could Elise live without her fix? Didn’t the doctor understand that the drugs hid the horrors of her past? Didn’t he realise that they made life bearable? And really, would life be worth living without them? ONE MAN Ever since he had been a young boy, he had always enjoyed an incredible ability to listen to people without ever judging them. He cared and he knew instinctively which path he should follow in life. Could Jonathan Davies, a highly experienced and compassionate psychiatrist help these women overcome the horrors of their past or would the mother of all demons destroy him too?

About the Author:

Award Wining Author, JW Lawson is already gaining recognition for her writing talents in the US and world-wide. The first of a trilogy of sensational thrillers, Third Time Lucky has received numerous five-star reviews in the UK. The second book of the series, Mummy's Little Angel is the winner of the highly acclaimed Worlds Best Story competition and has also received some outstanding reviews from the professional team of judges in the competition. She is currently writing her third thriller, Crossroads which will be available in 2017 and the final book of the current series, Hush Little Baby will be available in 2018.

Review:

This is certainly a 5-Star book - although it does seem a little strange to say "I love it", given the harrowing content. I won't summarise the story, as that has been done elsewhere - suffice it to say that it is a harsh introduction to the mental and physical damage caused by abuse.It's a well-written book - you really care for the characters. You get inside their skin; you see, feel and suffer as they do; you are willing them to succeed and overcome their problems.
I liked the short chapters at the beginning which were each broken down into three short sections - these cause an urgency to your reading; the need to turn the page; read the next section / chapter; find out what happens next. As the plot developed I was well and truly hooked. The twist at the end was a true surprise.
I have great admiration for anyone who can research and write a complete novel, as the time and dedication needed are immense. Well done J W Lawson on an excellent first book - I admire you. If there is a follow-up, I will gladly buy it.

I adore psychological thrillers but can sometimes find books following a predictable pattern however this book is refreshing in that it'soriginal and you can really feel the pain the characters are suffering,it moved me to tears and you are routing for the characters to triumphthrough their battle. The book sensitively highlights the appallingtreatment of abuse victims without making belittling or sensationalising the experiences; clever writing helps the imagination to fill in thegaps. Hurry up Book 2 I say, brilliant new author!!

A compelling psychological drama that is impossible to put down. Thewriting flows beautifully and the story drags you in and won't let yougo. JW demonstrates a deep understanding of the human psyche and thecharacters leap off the screen and into your own head. I've read andenjoyed Mummy's Little Angel as well, and the quality of both areexceptional. I can wait for more from this author.

One of the best books I have read for a while, with twists and turns.Once you begin to read it you want to carry on until the end. Can't wait for a sequel!
