      'Words are just warm sounds that come out of your mouth'This quote really stuck with me when I read it and I even bookmarked it for later contemplation.

      I would like to thank author Frank Freudberg, Maxine of Booklover Catlady Publicity, Net Galley, and Inside Job Media for gifting me a copy of this novel in exchange for an unbiased review.I didn’t know what to expect from this book as I went into it essentially blind, having read the blurb several months previously. All I recalled was that it was a suspense novel. And what a suspense novel it is! There is a lot to like here. I was most impressed with Mr. Freudberg’s complex characterization [...]

      I have had this one waiting to be read on my TBR list 'direct' from author.I am so glad that I agreed to read it because it was so worth my while.

At this visit Lock meets Natalie Mannheim and his life is changed forever. Natalie worms her way into Lock's heart and convinces him to do things he never would have imagined before.

      Now I'm determined not to spoil this one for anyone who may take my advice and read this superb novel, so I'll keep this short! Take a trio of complex characters, add in their interactions and schemes to manipulate situations and each other to achieve their own goals, put them all into the head of a talented author and you’re sure to have a great psychological thriller to keep you turning pages.There are themes running throughout the story of love, deceit, addiction, regret and shame together [...]

      Two lines of the synopsis for this story instantly captured my attention:"ALL LOCK GILKENNEY WANTS IS A FAMILY. BUT HE'LL HAVE TO CROSS THE LINE TO GET ONE."Let me start off by saying that Frank Freudberg's writing style was very solid, and I really got a feel--initially--for his characters. Top Investigator for Child Protective Services is Lock Gilkenney, a man who has overcome more than his share of heartaches in the past. he has finally gotten his life on track after joining AA, and truly mak [...]

    16. Sandy *The world could end while I was reading and I would never notice*

      At the beginning I really thought this book was going to go places.But as I got further into it, it became just more of the same.Baby Please Don't Go failed to grip my imagination or to stir any passion in me. I did finish the book, but honestly wish I had given up at the 60% point when the thought first crossed my mind.Not only did the book fail to stir any passion in me, but I feel that the author did not have a lot of passion for his subject. It felt like he had an idea and just knocked the b [...]

    17. Kristy Daniels

      This is the first book I've read by Frank Freudberg. It was definitely a page turner and takes the reader through a myriad of emotions. This book shows how good intentions can go horribly wrong and set off a chain reaction of unfortunate drama filled events. The main character, Lock, is a child protective services investigator who has a strong passion for helping the clients he serves. Lock has family of origin issues, a history of addiction, and grief issues that have an impact on his day to da [...]

      These are the type of stories I love, where one wrong decision leads you down an ever-quickening descent into moral complexity and the consequences that follow. Lock Gilkenney is a CPS agent who lost his family in a tragic accident. He's dedicated his life to helping children and refuses to cross any line, always doing what he feels is right. But when an opportunity for a future he thought was only his past comes in the form of an abused spouse he is investigating, he begins justifying decisions [...]

    20. Vishakha Motwani

      One hell of a psychological thriller!There is a recovering alcoholic who is a guardian angel for children and all he wants or better yet deserves is a family. Often, many people cross extreme boundaries for the love of their own children and Lochlan Gilkenney is one of such who'd do anything for any child.There is extreme thrill upto 60% of the book, the rest 40% became predictable enough, even if it wasn't predictable it was not surprising. Overall, it kept me engaged until the end and a pretty [...]

    21. Elisa

      I received a free copy from the author and his publicist in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, Frank Freudberg!I cannot recall the last book I read in which I liked a character so much and loathed another one just as much. Lock, a recovering alcoholic, is such a good person. He may be misguided and easily manipulated, but the poor guy is just trying to do the right thing. Natalie, a femme fatale in the most classic tradition, gets him entangled in a plot that can't possibly end well, and [...]

    22. J. Kahele

      This was so amazing Emotionally earth shattering. Through the whole story I felt only compassion for Lock. Natalie, however, not so much. The story is about a recovering alcoholics whose only dream is to have a family of his own and finds that when he meets a woman named Natalie who gives birth to his son Auggie. But Natalie isn't the warm loving woman that Lock thinks and he is thrown into a world of lies and deceit. This is a unique story and a review would never do it justice. The author tugs [...]

    23. Renita D'Silva

      I absolutely LOVED this book. Couldn't put it down. It thrills, terrifies and delivers on every page. What a rollercoaster ride of a story. Original, compelling, brilliant. Highly recommended.

    24. Petra

      Lock is a committed investigator at Child Protective Services who desperately wants a family of his own. He's also a recovering alcoholic coping with grief and abandonment issues. One of his cases involves Natalie who is going through a nasty divorce and custody battle. Lock becomes infatuated with Natalie, and it all goes downhill from there.This was my first book written by Frank Freudberg, who definitely has a way with words. He really makes you feel things. The author truly succeeds in makin [...]

      I managed to read this in one sitting while on the plane heading on holiday and I just did not want it to end.We start off with Lock breaking into a building and making a shocking confession to an old friend. This pulled you in straight away as it you need to know what he meant by his shocking words. We go back in time with Lock as he tells the story of his life. It was just like any other day, Lock heads off to do a standard home visit after an accusation of child neglect where he meets Natalie [...]

    26. Shannon Mcfarland

      Baby Please Don't Go left me with mixed feelings. Don't get me wrong. Overall it was a good book. However, the story was a bit long winded with unnecessary elements that could have been removed to make the book less "fluffed" up.Lock is a CPS agent that gets assigned to a case and the beginning of the story starts off with him in a perilous situation and confessing to his conspiracy in a crime that hurt the children he was supposed to protect. The story flashes back to the events that lead up to [...]

    27. Kilauna

      So I have mixed feelings about this book. While the book was well written, I found myself struggling trying to root for Lock when he showed (in my opinion) some weakness and gullibility when it came to Natalie. He knew deep down that Natalie was up to no good, but he let his obsession with having the perfect family outweigh his common sense. In all fairness he did want the best for the children, but he let his compassion for them shadow being played for a fool. Do I think Natalie learned her les [...]

      ‘Switching vices is like being on the Titanic and demanding a different deckchair'‘Lonely guy, loves trees and children, wants to love and be loved. (Oh, and by the way, I’m a recovering alcoholic.)’ Thus might read Lock Gilkenny’s lonely hearts ad. Unfortunately those traits that endear him to the reader, will ultimately prove to be his Achilles heel when he meets Natalie Witt, sociopath par excellence. Ignoring all the warning signs, he sees in Natalie the means to get what he has lo [...]

    29. Noelle

      I was given this book by the publicist in exchange for an honest review. Well what can I say!? I absolutely loved this book!!!The story is well written and hooks you from the start. What I particularly liked about this book is just when I thought it would end as most books would have ended, this one carried on and I learned the "what happened next" without having to wait for another book or imagine what may have happened. A conclusion actual, real and believable ending! Just brilliant in my view [...]

    30. E.J. Findorff

      The writing is excellent and the first chapter pulled me in, but I felt the very beginning took too long to get rolling. But once it did get rolling, it pulled me right in again. The characters, like Gillian Flynn's characters, didn't seem like they were there to be liked. The main character was likable up the point where he just wasn't anymore. However, I don't have a problem with needing to like the characters. I LOVE Gillian Flynn's stuff.All in all, I liked the story. It was riveting at time [...]
