Audience Reviews for When the Bough Breaks

½

Suspenseful and interesting in spite of a few holes in the plot. Ally Walker gives a convincing performance. It has a great pace and it held my interest throughout. Good story and well written. I am surprised the reviews weren't better. I thought it was a great mystery thriller.
