You might ask, why do I let her? Why would I risk my darling baby? How could I let my sister stay?
Because I have a dangerous secret, too. One that only Carrie knows about. And if that secret gets out, I could lose my little girl....

There's Social Services, a previous lost child for the couple, the current baby girl being hurt while in the sisters care, husband wanting sister to leave, wife wanting her to stay, husband believes she's guilty, wife believes she's innocent.
Oh Boy! The drama just doesn't stop! And NO, those aren't even the spoilers! Believe me! There's much, much more in this hard to put down read!
I highly recommend you grab a copy on the quick!!

But Alexa’s loyalties are well and truly divided. Her sister has been there for her through thick and thin all her life. But Perry, her husband, is the man she’s chosen to spend the rest of her life with and have a gorgeous baby girl with. I couldn’t help but sympathise with this mixed up woman struggling to make sense of the events going on around. And that before you consider the blow to her confidence that motherhood has dealt; unable to leave the house with her daughter unless Carrie or Perry are by her side.
I have to mention the location. With Nottingham being the backdrop for this tense psychological thriller brought a warm and fuzzy to me. I’m a Nottingham girl originally so the references to familiar locations around the city and its suburbs was great for me.
The Girl She Wants is a thriller that made me chase my tail as I read. I wanted to be Alexa having that confidence in Carrie’s innocence but as I read the police based chapters the doubt crept in. As Alexa’s doubt grew so did my own… but then boom that climax … that was not what I expected in the slightest!!
I’m ashamed to say this is my first novel by K.L. Slater despite me having a number in my kindle. Fortunately for me, I loved The Girl She Wanted so I can’t wait to dive into another Slater creation when my TBR allows.
What does the title mean?
Why did Perry's work crew turn potentially violent towards him?
Why was there not a back-up borehole expert?
What hospital has nurses working a 9-5 shift?
How did the bereaved daughter obtain the doctor's address, or even suspect him?
And so on.
Further spoiler: the twist is not so much jaw-dropping as utterly ludicrous.
The plot was reasonable but the characters were shallow and cliched and the story plodded on getting worser and worse
By the end I was skimming the pages just to see who killed who and why
When compared to the authors previous books this might have been written by someone completely different and not at all talented , hopefully the next book will be up to standard
