Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for giving me the chance to review The Happy Family by Jackie Kabler
A mother who disappeared…
When Beth was 10 years old, her beautiful, wild mother Alice disappeared. Beth’s life since hasn’t always been easy, but now she’s settled, with a successful career, a loving family and a beautiful home.
An unexpected visitor…
Then one day there’s a knock at the door. Alice has returned. Desperate to rebuild their relationship, Beth invites her mother to move in.
A life that comes crashing down…
At first, everything is wonderful. But then Beth’s friends start to drift away, strange things happen at home, and rumours about Beth begin to circle. Someone is out to destroy Beth’s newfound happiness. But who? And how far will they go?
I’ve read a few book by Jackie and none of them have disappointed, The Happy Family is yet another superb read.
It had an excellent story line with characters that are highly believable. I was thoroughly gripped from the start, so much so I didn’t want the book to end especially with the unexpected twist.
I highly recommend reading Jackie’s books.
