Read an excerpt:
Jo Crow gave ten years of her life to the corporate world of finance, rising to be one of the youngest VPs around. She carved writing time into her commute to the city, but never shared her stories, assuming they were too dark for any publishing house. But when a nosy publishing exec read the initial pages of her latest story over her shoulder, his albeit unsolicited advice made her think twice.
A month later, she took the leap, quit her job, and sat down for weeks with pen to paper. The words for her first manuscript just flew from her. Now she spends her days reading and writing, dreaming up new ideas for domestic noir fans, and drawing from her own experiences in the cut-throat commercial sector.
Not one to look back, Jo is all in, and can’t wait for her next book to begin.
REVIEW:I am loving audiobooks right now, and I was lucky enough to get a review copy of A Mother's Lie on audio. I put this one during a six hour car ride, and ended up having to finish it as soon as I got to my destination.
I really enjoyed the narrator and I definitely recommend picking this up on audio. It really kept my interest with the twists and turns along the way. I will not say this was predictable, but I did figure out what was going to happen pretty early. It did not take away from the enjoyment or the suspense of the story though. There were things I really enjoyed and others that I think needed a little more development.
Overall, a mystery/thriller!
