She loves your son. She wants your life. How far would you go to protect your son? Laura has it all. A successful career, a long marriage to a rich husband, and a twenty-three year-old son, Daniel, who is kind, handsome, and talented. Then Daniel meets Cherry. Cherry is young, beautiful and smart but hasn’t led Laura’s golden life. And she wants it. When tragedy strikes, a decision is made and a lie is told. A lie so terrible it changes their lives forever . . .
This felt like a stiff and stilted read, and I was tempted to give up halfway through but then it took a turn I wasn’t expecting at all, and I just had to see how it all played out. At heart it’s the traditional story of highly strung mother disliking the new girlfriend, but it goes so much deeper and darker than that! Twists and turns along the way, and some hair-raising moments, but ultimately an intriguing ride to the end.
