The Donor


Book Description

When Lizzie’s daughter Meg is given a life-saving heart transplant, Lizzie feels hugely grateful to the nameless donor. Then she receives a letter from the donor’s mother, Karen, asking to meet, and it seems like the least she can do.

But as soon as Karen is welcomed into their lives, Lizzie feels something isn’t right. And before long, she can’t help but worry that by inviting Karen in, she might have put Meg in danger . . .

My Review

A perfectly paced, page turner!

What a fantastic thriller! I thoroughly enjoyed this quick read. Having struggled lately to concentrate on things, including books, this story grabbed me so much that I finished it in two short sittings.

Clare has cleverly filled 112 pages with suspense and drama, along with twists and turns that will make you not want to put the book down!

Some quick reads can feel rushed and leave you disappointed come the end. Not this one! I honestly feel like I read a full novel! This just shows what an incredible writer Clare is.

Although this book is fiction, it highlights just how important organ donation is. You can save up to 9 lives by opting in to donate your organs. More info can be found at

For the bargain price of ยฃ1, you will not be disappointed with this book. If you love psychological thrillers and havenโ€™t read any of Clareโ€™s other books, then where have you been? I highly recommend them.

Iโ€™m 36, married with 2 children. Reading is my passion which stemmed from the day I picked up a James Patterson book as a teenager. Iโ€™ve been a bookworm ever since. My favourite genre is psychological/suspense type thrillers but i also like a good romance/tearjerker. Iโ€™m a member of NetGalley and have my Top Reviewer badge. I hope you enjoy my Book Reviews ๐Ÿ“š
