Slim To None by Freya Barker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Well I expected this to be a great book after reading For Dust by the same author, and believe me it was great. I loved the characters and how things developed between them.
The main character Emma Young has disabilities which make her mobility an issue and she uses a walking frame, she is a very loving mother of 1 adult child who has been left behind when Emma moved away for a new start. You have to love the fact that we have an older heroine in this book, instead of some young bimbo who always gets the guy and makes you sick. Emma loves to bake and she has found a great outlet for that, baking for her best friends cafe, she gets a little boost of income and she adores helping her friend.
A normal life as best as she could expect until one day this handsome hunk of a man appears and her life becomes complicated/ He is FBI and on a case, but little does she realise he is the mystery caller she had a bit of phone sex with recently. Gus the FBI agent is chasing information and he is there to track down someone but little does he realise when he is hitting on Emma that she is that person, nor that she is the phone sex lady.
Well not to go into too much detail this story is not all about romance and sex, it is a romance thriller I would say with plenty twists and turns, plenty ups and downs, and poor Emma endures more than her fair share of troubles. This is an amazing read that you will not forget in a hurry.
