The Good Mother  ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Author - Cathryn Grant
Publisher - Inkubator Books

Thank you Netgalley and the Inkubator Books to give me an opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.

My first book by Cathryn Grant and it didn’t disappoint at all. She has wittingly worked on the idea of the trauma which not only the victim of a brutal violent attack suffers but also how it affects the person who happens to witness it, especially a child. This book has been labelled as a psychological thriller but I find it closer to a domestic thriller.

The book is about 4 close friends - Amy, Jane, Kit and Rachel. They all are perfect mothers and housewives with perfect husbands living in the best neighbourhood of San Francisco. Their world starts wavering when Charlotte enters their town with her daughter. How is Charlotte affecting their lives and how some recent incidents in the neighbourhood affect their belief of their safe neighbourhood?

I loved reading this page-turner domestic thriller. I found some characters very unlikable but I still kept reading because I was interested to know what happened next. All the characters are written in such a way that they feel relatable.

Cathryn Grant’s writing has been non-complicated and very easy to read. Short chapters really made it a quick-read. The end of this domestic thriller does not disappoint at all.

If you like a short and engrossing domestic thriller, grab this one!
