Little Darlings by Melanie Golding is a suspenseful thriller novel with some possible supernatural elements.
The reader is left guessing. Is the main character Lauren mentally ill? Is she being harassed by another woman? Or is she the victim of a supernatural being that is trying to kidnap her newborn twins and swap them out for a changeling? It definitely makes the reader think about how we support and care for new mothers and how easy it would be for them to slip into madness between the lack of sleep and hormonal changes.
I enjoyed the POV of the police officer the most because Lauren is such a slippery character to nail down. Whereas the officer is focused and thorough in the investigation into Lauren’s allegations.
I recommend Little Darlings that enjoy darker and more difficult thrillers without easy answers. This is definitely a creepy novel that keeps you guessing until the end!
