Life update: The Baby is out now!

There’s a baby in your house. It isn’t yours…

The day I was told I’d never be able to have a child, my world came crashing down. My husband says he still loves me but I lie awake at night, wishing we could have a family.

One morning, my husband’s side of the bed is cold and empty. I hear a noise and head downstairs.

In the middle of the rug in my living room is a wooden drawer. Swaddled inside, with perfect rosy cheeks and beautiful round blue eyes, a baby gazes up at me.

I shiver. It’s all I’ve ever wanted, but this baby is not mine…

If this book seems a long time coming, that's because it is! I started writing it back in January 2023, fifteen long months ago.

I finished the first draft four months later, then signed a two-book deal with my brilliant publisher Bookouture, and since then we've been gearing up for the launch.

I hope it's worth the wait. The book bloggers who received early review copies have certainly had some wonderful things to say about The Baby:

'I finished this book in one day as I just HAD TO KNOW where the baby had come from!' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Amanda's Bookcase

'I really enjoyed the originality of this book. McDine has a way of wrapping the reader in from beginning to end with multiple great twists.' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Books Thrill Jessica

'A really brilliant read. A unique book with its own way of storytelling. A round of applause to A J McDine from me!' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rich's Reads

'This was a fast and addictive read that had me ignoring adulting to focus on listening!' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My Glamorous Reads

Here's that all-important link again:

Before I crack open a bottle of bubbly to celebrate publication day, I just wanted to thank you all for your patience and support while you've waited for The Baby to come out.

Your friendship and encouragement mean the world to me. I wouldn't be publishing my sixth thriller without you, that's for sure!

Thanks again and I hope you enjoy reading Lucy and Wren's story as much as I loved writing it.

Happy reading!
