I am super excited to share my review for The Perfect Mother by Caroline Mitchell which is out now
She thought they wanted her baby. But they won’t stop there.
Roz is young, penniless and pregnant. All she wants is to be the perfect mother to her child, but the more she thinks about her own chaotic upbringing, the more certain she is that the best life for her baby is as far away as possible from her hometown in Ireland.
Determined to do the right thing, Roz joins an elite adoption service and can’t believe her luck. Within days she is jetting to New York to meet a celebrity power couple desperate for a child of their own. Sheridan and Daniel are wealthy and glamorous—everything Roz isn’t. Her baby will never go hungry, and will have every opportunity for the perfect life. But soon after Roz moves into their plush basement suite, she starts to suspect that something darker lurks beneath the glossy surface of their home.
When Roz discovers she isn’t the first person to move in with the couple, and that the previous woman has never been seen since, alarm bells start ringing. As the clock ticks down to her due date, Roz realises her unborn baby may be the only thing keeping her alive, and that despite her best intentions, she has walked them both into the perfect nightmare…
Dont you just love it when you read a book that excesses all your expectations! Well this book is without a doubt just that. I am a massive fan of Caroline and have read all of her books, so I never read the blurb. So I went into this book knowing it would be a good read. But holy freaking hell what a story, it has totally blown me away.
I was hooked from the start and simply couldn’t put it down has we follow Roz on one terrifying and pulse racing journey. Who I emphasised with.
But I could also feel the emotion and terror through the author’s writing keeping me on the edge of my seat. Giving me plenty of OMG moments. I sat reading this with my hand over my mouth through most of it. Talk about building up the tension. Then the tension flys off the richter scale has the ending draws in.
This book is just so damn good, and I am very excited that I have read a story so early on in the year this amazing. Needless to say it is one of my top reads for 2020!
If you are looking for a story that is going to blow your mind and keep you up all night reading this is the book for you. I cannot recommend it enough. It definitely deserves ten gold stars.
