BLOG TOUR ~ The Missing Wife by Sam Carrington

Hi Everyone,

Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for The Missing Wife by Sam Carrington where I've an extract from her latest novel. I was thrilled to be asked by Sabah Khan from Avon Books to take part along with some other fab book bloggers. You can find out who else is taking part in this fabulous Blog Tour at the end of the review so without further ado, here it is:

Tiff crouched down to peek inside the pram. ‘Aw, he’s getting bigger. It’s all that good milk he’s getting.’
‘Not sure he is getting enough milk, actually.’ Now Louisa was inside her best friend’s house, she let her guard down. Without even realising she felt sad, tears began to trickle down her face.
‘Oh, lovely. Come here.’ Tiff enveloped Louisa in a tight hug, rocking her gently. This only added to Louisa’s unexpected outpouring of tears and suddenly she was sobbing.
‘I don’t know what’s happening to me.’ Her voice was muffled in Tiff’s white T-shirt.
‘Baby blues, love. They’ll pass. Come on, let’s get you a coffee.’
Louisa left Noah, who was thankfully still asleep despite the movement of the pram ceasing, and followed Tiff into her huge kitchen, wiping her tears with her jumper sleeve as she walked.
‘Here.’ Tiff handed Louisa a small cube of coloured tissues. Louisa took a few sheets and swiped them across her nose, annoyed with herself for crying the second she’d walked in. She watched through tingling eyes as her friend of eight years filled the see-through kettle with bottled water – she didn’t trust tap water, convinced she’d get cancer from drinking it – and stared at the blue light radiating through the liquid.
‘So—’ Tiff turned to look at her ‘—I take it you’re not sleeping, looking at those bags.’
Louisa couldn’t help but laugh. ‘Hah! Thanks, I feel better already!’
