Happy Monday bibliophiles!
The girls and I just finished this book over the weekend and oh boy did we love it! It comes out in the US on April 23 and I strongly encourage you to add it to your TBR!
The book is a compelling domestic thriller that takes a in-depth look at the complexities of the mother in law daughter-in-law relationship. An engaging story that completely captured my attention from the very first page! Our full reviews will be posted on publication day, but a little tease of what we thought below!
The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth
About the Book
From the moment Lucy met her husband’s mother, Diana, she was kept at arm’s length. Diana was exquisitely polite, and properly friendly, but Lucy knew that she was not what Diana envisioned. But who could fault Diana? She was a pillar of the community, an advocate for social justice who helped female refugees assimilate to their new country. Diana was happily married to Tom, and lived in wedded bliss for decades. Lucy wanted so much to please her new mother-in-law.
That was five years ago.
Now, Diana has been found dead, a suicide note near her body. Diana claims that she no longer wanted to live because of a battle with cancer.
But the autopsy finds no cancer.
The autopsy does find traces of poison and suffocation.
Who could possibly want Diana dead? Why was her will changed at the eleventh hour to disinherit both of her adult children and their spouses?
With Lucy’s secrets getting deeper and her relationship with her mother-in-law growing more complex as the pages turn, this new novel from Sally Hepworth is sure to add to her growing legion of fans.
“As gripping as it is haunting, there’s a poetry to the story told in The Mother-in Law that is so captivating and suspenseful, you will think about it for days after reading.”
“A twisted family situation and a hidden motive lead to murder. The MIL is Diana and my opinion of her changed so many times throughout the book and she certainly Surprised me in the end.”
“Irresistible, addicting, and brilliant storytelling that will leave you breathless.”
Sally Hepworth completely sucked me in with this compulsive engaging addictive story that took a hold of me and did not let go until the last page was turned!
