Struggling with a new baby, Yvonne turns to netmammy, an online forum for mothers, for support. Drawn into a world of new friends, she spends increasing amounts of time online and volunteers more and more information about herself. When one of her new friends goes offline, Yvonne thinks something is wrong.
But when the body of a young woman with striking similarities to Yvonne’s missing friend is found, Yvonne realises they’re all in terrifying danger. Can she persuade Sergeant Claire Boyle, herself about to go on maternity leave, to take her fears seriously?

I'm just a bit bored!
It's not bad, but it just didn't grab me. I found by a third or so of the way in, I just didn't really care what happened. I will be returning it.

I have to admit I found some of this book very annoying. There's a great deal about being a new mum, or being pregnant. I found Clare's attitude to her pregnancy at age 39 to be very harsh and I didn't warm to her character because of that. Yvonne was equally as annoying and pathetic. The book is somewhat redeemed by the ending, which was totally unexpected. Although again, why the villain behaved the way he did wasn't explained. But, quite honestly, I could have happily murdered that gaggle of squawking, clucking 'netmammies'!!
