Book Review – A Mother’s Secret by Minna Howard @Aria_Fiction #BookReview #BlogTour #contemporary

Many thanks to publisher Aria for my spot on this Blog Tour.

This was a sweet book about two strong women whose life intersected when a pregnant Saskia came to Verity’s home with a declaration that her husband was Saskia’s father. And the story moved parallel with both women adjusting to a new reality especially when there was an impending new birth.

My first book by author Minna Howard, the writing moved swiftly with lives unfolding. There were few moments of stress which added to the overall spiciness of the prose. Both the women were strong with hardly any input from the actual father. It was actually Verity who held the book together.

The story meandered intermittently where the emotions were sedate and portrayed with a stiff upper lip. Resolutions were found and life joined back together for Saskia and her newborn. Overall, a good read.

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

All my reviews can be read here

Verity seems to have it all. A beautiful home, two grown-up sons and a husband who has always been her rock. But one day, the doorbell rings. And it changes Verity’s life forever.

Saskia has nowhere else to go. Before she died, her mother left her with her father’s name and nothing else. The only way for Saskia to take care of herself – and her unborn baby – is to find the father she never knew. And the family that didn’t know she existed.

This family secret means the end of everything they’ve ever known. But could it also be the chance for a new beginning?
