Woman on the Edge by Samantha M. Bailey
Print and e-book, 272 pages
Published March 3rd 2020 by Simon & Schuster

A moment on the subway platform changes two women’s lives forever—a debut thriller that will take your breath away.

A total stranger on the subway platform whispers, “Take my baby.”

She places her child in your arms. She says your name.

Then she jumps...

In a split second, Morgan Kincaid’s life changes forever. She’s on her way home from work when a mother begs her to take her baby, then places the infant in her arms. Before Morgan can stop her, the distraught mother jumps in front of an oncoming train.

Morgan has never seen this woman before, and she can’t understand what would cause a person to give away her child and take her own life. She also can’t understand how this woman knew her name.

The police take Morgan in for questioning. She soon learns that the woman who jumped was Nicole Markham, prominent CEO of the athletic brand Breathe. She also learns that no witness can corroborate her version of events, which means she’s just become a murder suspect.

To prove her innocence, Morgan frantically retraces the last days of Nicole’s life. Was Nicole a new mother struggling with paranoia or was she in danger? When strange things start happening to Morgan, she suddenly realizes she might be in danger, too.

Woman on the Edge is a pulse-pounding, propulsive thriller about the lengths to which a woman will go to protect her baby—even if that means sacrificing her own life.

My thoughts about Woman on the Edge ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"'Take my baby.'"

Wow!! This book grabbed me from the very first words and held me captive to the very end. 

This story is a thriller at its best—edge-of-your-seat, page-turning, and heart-pumping. I devoured this book. I couldn't stop reading, it was that suspenseful. I'm extremely impressed by this debut novel and look forward to more books by Samantha in the future, hopefully soon. 

I received an ARC of Woman on the Edge from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion of the book.

About the author

Samantha M. Bailey

Samantha M. Bailey is a Toronto-based novelist, freelance editor, and journalist who has written extensively for Now Magazine, Oxford University Press, and many other publications. She is the co-founder of “BookBuzz,” a promotional and interactive author event held in New York City and Toronto. She holds a Master of Education in Applied Linguistics and credits that degree with her writing career because she wrote her first (unpublished) novel after taking a course on imagination.

Now her imagination leads her to create dark and twisty stories. Her #1 bestselling debut psychological thriller, Woman on the Edge, is published by Simon and Schuster Canada and Headline UK, and will be translated into seven languages. She loves reading as much as writing, so when not tapping away on her computer, she’s probably curled up with a really good book. ~ Goodreads
