Book Review – The Good Mother by Cathryn Grant @CathrynGrant @damppebbles @DamppebblesBTs #BookReview #BlogTour #suspense

Many thanks to Emma and Damp Pebbles Blog Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.

I quite liked this domestic drama with a dash of thriller. I felt like a voyeur trying to soak up the gossip in the neighborhood.

4 ladies who were kind of best friends + a newcomer + strange murder and rape happening in the neighborhood + irrational fear due to a childhood event = made this a potboiler of a drama where Amy was in the eye of the cyclone. Rachel was her best friend. Charlotte, the newcomer, was the brunt of Amy’s viciousness. And a death occurred.

My first book by author Cathryn Grant, I felt as if I were watching a television series. Each chapter made me chortle with glee wondering what these ladies would dredge up. The death of their friend shocked me and ramped up the wickedness. I loved watching the real faces come out.

Loyalties were tested when they lost a friend. I was eagerly waiting to see who would break down first. For me, the book moved at a delightful pace holding my interest in the story and making me eager to get to the next part.

Overall, a fun breakfast read.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

Amy’s life is picture perfect. Mess with that picture – you’re going to pay.

Amy’s life is close to perfect – two lovely daughters, a wonderful husband and she’s queen bee in her circle of soccer moms. She feels content, like she’s finally put some distance between herself and the terrible events of long ago.

The only fly in the ointment is Charlotte, a recent arrival to this affluent suburban community. The shameless way she dresses, the way the men look at her… it’s not right, she’s just not the kind of person they want around here.

Amy spearheads a drive to exclude Charlotte, to make it clear to her that she’s not welcome here. Infuriatingly, Charlotte doesn’t seem to care… And when her daughter joins the soccer team there’s just no getting away from her.

But Amy knows from bitter experience the kind of trouble a woman like Charlotte can bring. And there is no way on earth that her girls are ever going to be exposed to anything like that. The solution is clear – Charlotte has to go. No matter what it takes.

      1. I gotcha. The only time I allow myself to do is if I really dislike what I’m reading–then I’ll go find 1 and 2 star reviews on Goodreads to see who is annoyed by the same things.
