Finding out your pregnant should be one of the most joyous moments of one's life, shouldn't it? The Perfect Mother by Caroline Mitchell explores one woman's journey to provide the best possible life for her child by whatever means necessary.

I couldn't imagine having to decide whether I was going to keep my baby and raise my little bundle of joy as my own or give it up. Luckily I've never had to give thought to the possibility of abortion or adoption. Unfortunately, for our main character, these were just the unsettling, yet necessary thoughts going through her mind. Young, jobless and impregnated by... well, that detail doesn't need to come out just yet... Roz was in no way ready to be a mother. Maybe the best way she could be "the perfect mother" was to ensure her baby ended up with a well off family where she'd have the world laid at her feet.

"They want her baby. Do they also want her life?" - As the tagline suggests, Roz gets in over her head, and by the time she realizes it, she's left fighting for her life... and that of her unborn child.

It's hard to believe that The Perfect Mother is the first novel I've ever encountered by one, Caroline Mitchell. The way she portrays her characters and brings them to life is quite utterly brilliant. You can feel their desires and fears; you can feel the suspense dripping through the pages! I felt a sense of dread and downright thrill from start to finish. I did not see this story ending the way it did, so sickly twisted yet satisfying, impossible to put down!

I would recommend this book to everyone! Seriously, this is one psychological thriller you won't want to miss!! Thank you to NetGalley, the publishers from Amazon Publishing: Thomas & Mercer, and the author Caroline Mitchell for providing me with a complimentary copy of this title in exchange for an honest review.

Book Blurb:
Roz is young, penniless, and pregnant. All she wants is to be the perfect mother to her child, but the more she thinks about her own chaotic upbringing, the more certain she is that the best life for her baby is as far away as possible from her hometown in Ireland.

Determined to do the right thing, Roz joins an elite adoption service and can’t believe her luck. Within days she is jetting to New York to meet a celebrity power couple desperate for a child of their own. Sheridan and Daniel are wealthy and glamorous—everything Roz isn’t. Her baby will never go hungry, and will have every opportunity for the perfect life. But soon after Roz moves into their plush basement suite, she starts to suspect that something darker lurks beneath the glossy surface of their home.

When Roz discovers she isn’t the first person to move in with the couple, and that the previous woman has never been seen since, alarm bells start ringing. As the clock ticks down to her due date, Roz realises her unborn baby may be the only thing keeping her alive, and that despite her best intentions, she has walked them both into the perfect nightmare…
