    Mesmerizing book!

    Mother by S.E. Lynes is a mystery, and the first book I have read by this author. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Bookouture, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This one makes you think! Christopher Harris grows up without ever really fitting in with his family. He is a loner, spending most of his time in his room, and his social skills suffer. It is not until he is ready to leave for university that he discovers he was adopted. His life suddenly makes sense. He now has his purpose in life. To find his birth mother. This purpose will become an obsession. His room-mate at university, Adam, teaches him how to dress, how to drink, how to talk to girls. They become friends. Meanwhile, the Yorkshire Ripper is stalking young women in the area, and Christopher secretly becomes consumed by the events. He doesn’t share that information with Adam, nor does he share the fact that he was looking for, and has found his mother. He is getting really good at keeping secrets. But his search is over. He has found her, and everything seems too good to be true. Even Christopher questions the results sometimes. Perhaps he should, because something isn’t right. Is he fooling himself? Is he fooling others? Is the truth in there somewhere? The question remains….how far will you go to have the perfect family? The story is told by an unknown source, but still from Christopher’s perspective. It makes you wonder who the narrator is right to the end. (I tossed a couple of ideas about before I reached the correct conclusion). Occasionally, the story is told by Ben, which definitely had me confused for a bit. I admit to finding the beginning rather slow (and that’s the only reason for my 4 instead of 5 star rating), but once the story started unfolding, the book was hard to put down. The characters and relationships were mesmerizing. I really felt I understood where Christopher was coming from, and his need to belong – until I didn’t. As much as I wanted him to have a good relationship with his new mother, I hated the way he left his old family behind. And then there was the closeness he felt with his new mother. That was a little creepy. It actually didn’t take too long to determine that Christopher was a little more messed up than I had originally thought. The author really got deep into the characters, and since Christopher sometimes questioned his actions, I found myself questioning a lot of things. Loved the book, and highly recommend it. This is actually her second novel, and it looks like I’m going to have to go find her first – Valentina.
