‘My name is Alice. And my son is a murderer.’
Deborah’s son was killed four years ago. Alice’s son is in prison for committing that crime.
Deborah would give anything to have her boy back, and Alice would do anything to right her son’s wrongs.
Driven by guilt and the need for redemption, Alice has started a support group for parents with troubled children. But as the network begins to grow, she soon finds out just how easy it is for one little lie to spiral out of control…
They call it mother’s intuition, but can you ever really know your own child?
A fabulously weaved tale of deceit, murder, lies and secrets! This story told from multiple perspectives will leave you with a huge book hangover! As the story unfolds you will begin to realize that everyone has a story and every story is built on the foundation of a lie.
Alice, Angela, Connie, Deborah, Tom… who’s who? What role do they all really play in this web of lies. You will no doubt feel anger for all of them in one chapter and sorrow for all of them in the next. Carrington does a masterful job at building a suspenseful story based on a web of lies and murder while creating characters that jump off the page and become part of your life! I found myself thinking of them throughout my day and couldn’t wait to get back to the book to learn their fate!
So who will you most connect with? Alice, the mother of a boy serving time in jail for murder? Angela…. if that is her name! (No spoilers), Deborah, the mother of a murdered boy, and Tom, a seemingly sick individual with a gaming addiction and the need to kill!!!
Trust no one! Believe no one! Be careful turning those pages! 5 ⭐️ to Sam Carrington! Thank you for the ARC of this amazing book in exchange for our honest review!
