Description

THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER AND MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF THE SUMMER—SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING SCANDAL’S KERRY WASHINGTON

An addictive psychological thriller about a group of women whose lives become unexpectedly connected when one of their newborns goes missing.

A night out. A few hours of fun. That’s all it was meant to be.

They call themselves the May Mothers—a group of new moms whose babies were born in the same month. Twice a week, they get together in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park for some much-needed adult time.

When the women go out for drinks at the hip neighborhood bar, they want a fun break from their daily routine. But on this hot Fourth of July night, something goes terrifyingly wrong: one of the babies is taken from his crib. Winnie, a single mom, was reluctant to leave six-week-old Midas with a babysitter, but her fellow May Mothers insisted everything would be fine. Now he is missing. What follows is a heart-pounding race to find Midas, during which secrets are exposed, marriages are tested, and friendships are destroyed. 

Thirteen days. An unexpected twist. The Perfect Mother is a "true page turner." —B.A. Paris, author of Behind Closed Doors

    Because this book had good reviews I decided to read it. The problem I had in the beginning was the same problem I had in the middle and end: It was scattered, disjointed and confusing, and I found myself having a hard time focusing on the story at times. There were too many characters and they were not really well-developed or likable. So many things in this book we’re completely unrealistic to the point that it was distracting and annoying. Definitely not a favorite and I would not recommend it.

    This book started well but towards the end it felt rushed. Almost as if a part of the book was missing.

    This book was fractured and hopelessly meandering. I read 3-5 books a week and I’m sorry I wasted time on this one
  • Wonderfully Thrilling

    It began slow but necessarily set the stage for a page turner. The perfect mother, was a perfect puzzle. You may have the edges all in place but the final picture doesn’t come together until the final page

    I cannot believe I paid for this. Undeveloped characters and an elementary plot make this novel challenging.

    I don’t know what the hype is about. I could not wait to end this book. It was annoying, confusing, and amateurish the way it weaved in and out of the different perspectives. It is not a thriller or mystery. When I found out what happened to Midas, it was a letdown. I didn’t care. I was only happy that I was almost done with the book. There was so much time telling stories and very little time building suspense. I wish I hadn’t bought it.
