what is it with melbourne authors in the 'domestic thriller' genre? this would have been more enjoyable if the online reviews and book cover had been more terse regarding key plot points. the mother in law was a page turner that made me reflect on motivations that are left unsaid but would've made all the difference if they had been shared.
Very well written but not at all what I expected. Not sure what verdict is although I did read whole book. Sure there will be many different opinions . Too much given away in intro .
The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth is a suspenseful family drama. Ollie and Lucy have fallen in love and Lucy is about to meet her future mother-in-law Diana. To say that Diana is aloof and indifferent is an understatement. Each chapter alternates between Diana and Lucy, in the past and in the present, as their relationship changes over the years. Until Diana is found dead in her home, and the authorities have difficulty establishing if her death was a suicide or a murder. A suicide note is found hidden in a drawer and not close to the body. Her lawyer notifies her family that she has disinherited them and left her substantial fortune to a favorite charity. What could have happened to Diana? This novel deals with mother-in-law issues that many of us have encountered and therefore it hits home. The suspense is successfully maintained throughout and the characters are interesting. This is an enjoyable read and I highly recommend it.
