Walking out on his abusive father all those years ago was the best thing I ever did. And today he stands, tall and handsome, saying ‘I do’ to my dream daughter-in-law. If I hadn’t pushed them together all those years ago, he might never have found a girl as perfect as Lauren. It’s true what they say, mother always knows best. But weeks later, Lauren is dead and police cars fill the driveway of their idyllic countryside home. As they question Sam, I sense he’s hiding something. Why won’t he look me in the eye? And who does he rush off to meet as soon as the police are gone? Desperate, I do what every good mother would do: I let myself into Sam and Lauren’s bedroom.

First, this is not a gripping thriller however, it is a good slow burn dysfunctional family drama. I listened to the audiobook and really enjoyed the narrator. I thank Netgalley for the opportunity to listen to and review this audiobook.
This book was riveting. I had to listen to it and one go. The twist and turns we’re never ending. At the very end where you think you’re done it gives you another blow amazing.
Excellent, riveting psych thriller you will NOT want to put down! Sue is a wonderful writer who expertly weaves suspense with drama, and adds plot twists out of the blue. I’m eager to read lots more from her!

Twists and turns and volatile unexpected ending that I did not see coming. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the author, Bookouture and Net Galley for my digital copy.
It took 90ish pages to pull me in but you need the 90ish pages to lay the foundation for the rollercoaster that the rest of the book is. You’re given clues during those chapters so keep sharp and don’t give up on it. You don’t know who to trust even until the very last page. Well done and I definitely recommend.
An awesome read!! Just when you think you figured out “whodunit”…another twist comes along! A great book! I hope part 2 will be coming soon!
