My first Waiting on Wednesday post of 2013 and I’m so excited to feature this book I just found out about at this past weekend’s Random House Blogger Love event. Recommended by Lindsey @ RHC for fans of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl! The cover for Canada is still TBC so I am using the one used for the Australian market instead.
Just What Kind of Mother Are You?
by Paula Daly
A searing and sinister thriller for readers who liked Gone Girl.
What if your best friend’s child disappears? And it was all your fault.
This is exactly what happens to Lisa Kallisto, overwhelmed working mother of three, one freezing December in the English Lake District. She takes her eye off the ball for just a moment and her whole world descends into the stuff of nightmares. Because, not only is thirteen-year-old Lucinda missing, and not only is it all Lisa’s fault, but she’s the second teenage girl to disappear within this small tightknit community over two weeks. The first girl turned up stripped bare, dumped on a busy high street, after suffering from a terrifying ordeal.
Wracked with guilt over her mistake and after being publicly blamed by Lucinda’s family, Lisa sets out to right the wrong. But as she begins peeling away the layers surrounding Lucinda’s disappearance, Lisa learns that the small, posh, quiet town she lives in isn’t what she thought it was, and her friends may not be who they appear, either.
Just What Kind of Mother Are You? is available April 30, 2013
