Daniel loves his mother and they have a close relationship. He also has a new girlfriend. His mother, Laura, wants to protect her son. His girlfriend, Cherry, wants him to be all hers.
The story is told from Laura and Cherry’s viewpoints. Laura seems to have a wonderful life – long marriage, nice home, great job, and the perfect son. Cherry came from a more modest upbringing, and her goal is to marry rich. Neither woman is likable. Laura was almost likable, but Cherry had no redeeming qualities. Both characters were manipulative, though Laura’s manipulation wasn’t as nefarious as Cherry’s.
A suspenseful family drama. This book seemed longer than necessary, but it was a fairly quick read.
I received a copy of this book from Kensington Books and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
