I read this on the cover alone, which draws you in as much as the story. Imagine Frances, with rather low self-esteem and feeling left out. As a stay-at-home mom, she gets lonely. She doesn’t see a place in the Forrester mom’s world. That’s why meeting Kate changes things. She now has a friend and ally.
I enjoyed that we get multiple points of view, which helps to tell a complete picture of what is going on. I read a lot of reviews before mine that give so much away that it spoils it for others, which is really disappointing. I think the best way to read this is to go in blind and let the tension draw you in. Overall, this was a quick and fun read that’s light on the thriller but great with the drama.
Her Pretty Face is available on Amazon for $12.99.
About the Book:
Frances Metcalfe is struggling to stay afloat.
A stay-at-home mom whose troubled son is her full-time job, she had hoped that the day he got accepted into the elite Forrester Academy would be the day she started living her life. Overweight, insecure, and lonely, she is desperate to fit into the Forrester world. But after a disturbing incident at the school leads the other children and their families to ostracize the Metcalfes, she feels more alone than ever before.
Until she meets Kate Randolph.
Kate is everything Frances is not: beautiful, wealthy, powerful, and confident. And for some reason, she’s not interested in being friends with any of the other Forrester moms—only Frances. As the two bond over their disdain of the Forrester snobs and the fierce love they have for their sons, a startling secret threatens to tear them apart—one of these women is not who she seems. Her real name is Amber Kunik. And she’s a murderer.
