Book Review — “The Perfect Mother” by Caroline Mitchell

I really liked this book! First of all, the writing was great and Caroline Mitchell reels you in from the beginning. It doesn’t wander…blather on…etc and I was drawn in on every page. Roz is a young girl living in Ireland. She has a good life and good friends but a dead-end job and now she’s pregnant. Deciding to give the child up for adoption, she joins a website that facilitates high-end adoptions. That’s where she meets Sheridan and Daniel — a power couple that will give her baby everything she can’t. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime, isn’t it? Sworn to secrecy of their identity, Roz is flown to America, first-class, and brought by chauffeur to their beautiful home. But (no surprise here!!) this celebrity couple isn’t what they seem; everyone working for them is either scared or non-communicative, and none of her friends and family know where Roz is. This is fast-paced and creepy, as intended. And what I really appreciated is that I did, in fact, like Roz, as Mitchell did a great job in making her relatable and believable. Too many times in these types of novels I am so annoyed by the stupidity of the heroine that I’m ready to snuff her off myself by the end. Not so here; so kudos to the author. Good, fun, creepy read. Disclaimer — I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher!!! #NetGalley 🤩🤩🤩🤩
