Morgan is in shock as people run to her and the baby. How did this woman even know her name? Things happen quickly from this point on, and I had trouble putting the book down. Woman on the Edge alternates chapters between Nicole before the incident and Morgan after the incident, and author Bailey does a good job building the characters of these two women.
Although I figured out who the “bad guy” was pretty quickly, there were several strong possibilities along the way that kept me guessing if I was correct until the very end. Both characters are being blamed for things they had no control over and have difficulty moving on with their lives. Bailey gives us a window into the dark paths of mental illness, and while it was often uncomfortable for the reader, it did bring an important reality to the story.
Although some of the situations and their conclusions seemed a bit preposterous, Bailey did an excellent job capturing her audience with a thrilling first chapter and then holding our interest throughout. Hopefully. we will see many more books from this talented writer.
