The Mother In Law by Sally Hepworth

 Wow, I loved it! Please add me to the huge list of fans for Sally Hepworth. I have heard so much about this author and yet this is my first book I have read by her. Needless to say I am quickly adding the rest to my TBR pile!

The age old mother- in- law vs  daughter- in- law dilemma. Except this time the mother in law Diana ends up dead! Certainly even though Lucy and Diana have had their differences in the past, it surely would not have come to this?! As we search for the answer to this question we are privy to both Lucy and Diana's point of view. Which allowed us to see how each really felt about the other as we got a look into each of their thoughts.

This book started out with a bang and did not let up. I literally flew through this book in less than 24 hours because I could not put it down! I loved the writers style which kept me gripped to the pages until the very end. I know that many will think Diana is unlikable, but dare I say I loved her. Yes I did! I loved reading her point of view. She was very witty at times and made me laugh. I felt she was a very strong woman with a strong personality. This quite often rubs people the wrong way, but it made me like her even more.

I read this book as a group read with the Traveling Sisters. It was a fantastic book to read as a group because we could bounce all our theories off each other. Needless to say this one kept me guessing until the very end. I never saw that ending coming! That is the best kind of book in my opinion. Loved my first book by Sally Hepworth, I have a lot of catching up to do!

Thank you so much to St. Martin's Press for this ARC and Sally Hepworth for writing this fantastic book!

    1. Yes! I loved reading this together. We sure had a lot to discuss. Everyone seemed to have a bit of a different take on the ending.
