I raced through THE PERFECT MOTHER, desperate to find out what would happen. Both the writing and the characterization are excellent, and it was so easy to identify with these women and the pressure they are under. I absolutely loved it - a true page turner!
A desperate, thrilling mystery that you'll think you have all figured out - until you realize you don't
THE PERFECT MOTHER is a gripping page turner that explores the pressures of modern motherhood, as well as a mother's absolute worst nightmare. At once wonderfully nuanced and compulsively readable, it keeps you guessing at every moment up until the very end. I could not be prouder to be bringing this thriller to the big screen.
An electrifying thriller - and a subtle, savvy skewering of the endless expectations of modern motherhood.
It's a novel written to champion women. It's a powerful reminder that the consequences of telling a person who she is can be deadly. The Perfect Mother is set to be one of the year's biggest crime novels, as well as a film starring Kerry Washington. I hope it keeps a whole nation of advice-givers awake all night.

I was hooked... a page-turner... a rare and wonderful thing.
Whip-smart.... Very much in the mold of recent best-sellers like The Girl on the Train and The Woman in the Window, but it's also a sharply drawn take on the cult of modern parenting and the particular pressure women face - from within and without - to pull it all off, flawlessly
A riveting psychological thriller that takes a sharp, insightful look at motherhood, THE PERFECT MOTHER explores the pressures, the hopes, the fears, and the secrets between a group of friends who realize how little they know one another when a crisis strikes. A fast-paced, twisty, engrossing read - I loved it!
A captivating and deeply insightful page-turner, The Perfect Mother is both a riveting mystery and a satisfyingly sharp social commentary about what it means to be a good mother.
