Summary from Goodreads:


Clinical psychologist Dr Emma-Jane Glass falls for her captor when the roles of client and therapist are reversed in a psychologically layered story of revenge and grief. Is it a case of Stockholm Syndrome, or something else?

When Dr Emma-Jane Glass’ interview on local radio is deemed to be sympathetic towards a mother’s actions to kill herself and young child, Drew Rogers hatches a plan to teach the psychologist a thing or two about being a grief-stricken spouse left behind. Abducted and held captive in an empty property, Dr Glass swaps places in the psychologist’s chair.

Drew puts the motivation of his wife’s actions down to his extra-marital affairs, but then the sordid truth behind his family’s disappearance is revealed.

Hard-hitting and emotional, Dr Glass is the first novel in the Glass Minds Series from the author of Rachel’s Garden, The Entrepreneur, Willow Weeps and Rosie Shadow.

A deep winding tale that will keep you guessing.

I had a wonderful time reading this story. It kept me guessing through the entire book and the intricate weave of the story is incredible. Louise Worthington really has a talent for story telling. 

The characters were each so unique. They held their own and brought the pain of the situation to life, but the pacing was slow and at times it made the story fall flat. I had to hold onto those wonderful characters to get me through. With the seriousness of the story, a little excitement could have broken up the strenuous emotions that are felt throughout the book. By the end I was depleted beyond belief.

Glad I read this story.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
