There seems to be a real surge in psychological thrillers at the moment, particularly those in relation to motherhood. Just What Kind of Mother Are You? is a gripping book which will keep you guessing.
The plot follows Lisa, a busy Mum, struggling to balance all her commitments. The juggling act is always a challenge, but this time there are serious consequences to her taking her eye off the ball- her best friend's daughter goes missing. Riddled with guilt, Lisa is determined to do all she can to find the child...
I really enjoyed Just What Kind of Mother Are You? , it is a fabulously enticing read that had me desperate to turn the pages and uncover the facts. It sped by at a tremendous pace and I was halfway before I knew it. Paula Daly does a fantastic job at keeping you guessing-there are so many twists and turns and as a reader I was never sure who to trust. The pain and horror of being responsible for a child going missing is portrayed eloquently and as someone who works with children I found this quite an upsetting read, imagining how awful it must be to bear the burden of responsibility for someone else's child disappearing.
Well written and with an interesting plot, I would recommend this book to fans of Gillian Flynn and Liane Moriarty.
Just What Kind of Mother Are You? is out now.
With thanks to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
