Trust Me by T. M. Logan - 4/5
Blurb:
"TWO STRANGERS, A CHILD, AND A SPLIT SECOND CHOICE THAT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING...

Ellen was just trying to help a stranger. That was how it started: giving a few minutes respite to a flustered young mother sitting opposite her on the train. A few minutes holding her baby while the mother makes an urgent call. The weight of the child in her arms making Ellen's heart ache for what she can never have.

Five minutes pass.
Ten.

The train pulls into a station and Ellen is stunned to see the mother hurrying away down the platform, without looking back. Leaving her baby behind. Ellen is about to raise the alarm when she discovers a note in the baby's bag, three desperate lines scrawled hastily on a piece of paper:

Please protect Mia
Don't trust the police
Don't trust anyone

Why would a mother abandon her child to a stranger? Ellen is about to discover that the baby in her arms might hold the key to an unspeakable crime. And doing the right thing might just cost her everything..."

Review:
I did not know what I was letting myself in for when I started this book. 

41-year-old Ellen is returning from an appointment at a fertility clinic. She and her now ex-husband Richard could never conceive and she always longed to be a mother. Her heart is broken when she finds out that Richard's new girlfriend is pregnant.

While on the train, she meets Kathryn and baby Mia. Kathryn seems to trust Ellen and asks if she can hold baby Mia while she takes an urgent call. Kathryn then rushes off the train, leaving Mia with Ellen. Inside the changing bag, Ellen finds a note which says to protect Mia, not to trust anyone and not to trust the police.

Totally unsure of what to do, Ellen finds herself right in the middle of a huge situation. We meet Dominic, Kathryn's sister's ex-husband, Leon, a man who runs a crime podcast and police officers Gilbourne and Holt. 

Information is given to us a small bursts and Ellen is trying her best to find out the truth and who has Mia's best interests at heart. We follow along with Ellen's discoveries, suspecting everyone but that ending even shocked me!
