A Mother Like You
All mothers have secrets...some are unforgivable
Kate Marshall lives an enviable life. Married to handsome, charming, James, owner of a successful company, she seems to have it all. But falling pregnant at 45 was never part of the plan. Especially as Kate’s hiding a devastating secret – one that she’s been running from for twenty years.
So when ex-boyfriend Paul comes back into her life, threatening to expose the truth about what Kate did, the clock is ticking. Can she keep her secrets and finally be the mother she always dreamed of – or will her past lies destroy her perfect life?
An unputdownable, complex and twisty psychological thriller about mothers and daughters – fans of Shalini Boland, Liane Moriarty and Jane Shemilt will love this gripping read.
This is another excellent read from this author.
Kate is happily married to James. When she finds out she is pregnant at forty five years old it’s not what she wants. She also has a secret. When her ex turns up blackmailing her she is terrified her secret will be revealed.
This is a well written story that I read in one afternoon... I just had to keep reading to see what was gonna happen next.
I’m looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.
