The Perfect Mother – Aimee Molloy

I’m sure you’ve seen this beauty all over Instagram and blogs, and let me tell you, photos can’t do the cover justice.

Thanks to Harper Books for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest review.

THE PERFECT MOTHER – Aimee Molloy (Releasing May 1st, 2018)

Check back for the #allthebookreviews thoughts!


My Thoughts: 4.5/5 stars!

Addictive psychological thriller is the perfect way to describe this book! This is a perfect spring binge read about a group of women whose lives get turned upside down when one of their newborns goes missing. THE PERFECT MOTHER is one you won’t want to miss out on (and it’s going to be made into a movie with Kerry Washington!)

We follow a group of women that call themselves the May Mothers – they all were due in the same month and now have newborns. They meet twice a week at a nearby park to commiserate together about motherhood; everything from the joys, anxiety, and exhaustion that comes with being a new mother.

One night they decide to change things up and they meet at a local bar one night. They all get babysitters, some more reluctant than others, and have a great night together. They share secrets and learn more about each other as the drinks keep coming. When Winnie arrives home her biggest fear becomes a reality: her son has been abducted from his crib.

Now the police are involved and Winnie’s life has turned into a media circus. Are the other May Mothers willing to help her find her son? How far are you willing to go to find your child or to help a friend?

Do you love red herrings? Do love suspense and questioning everything you thought you knew about the story? Well, look no further! THE PERFECT MOTHER has all of that and more. There is a collection of characters that you will get to know. At times they were a little difficult to keep straight, but other than that this was a fantastic read.

I highly recommend this for you spring and summer TBRs! The ending was shocking and I did not see that coming. Always great for those of us that are seasoned veterans with the thriller genre.
