  • Chilling, emotional novel!

    This is a story that grabbed my heart! Something is wrong! Ali Lawton is pregnant and her husband has suddenly decided he cannot be involved with this pregnancy and delivery! This is the guy who wanted children. Why now does he not want this baby? Ali is confused, angry and hurt, but she will and can definitely do it without him! She leaves her home and husband, and runs to her grandmother's old beach cottage where she meets a "new" friend. Meg is someone that seems confident and is more than willing to teach Ali about childcare and pregnancy. She could be the perfect friend. But... things are not always as they seem. The slow, steady buildup begins and the suspense creates an intriguing, emotional novel with an ending you just will not even imagine! I always enjoy Leah Mercer's stories, and this one has quickly became one of my favorites so far this year! Excellent!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Really Good Read!

    This is a story about love, loss and redemption. For some of us it is too late while for others it turns on a dime. Leah Mercer has written a touching story about wishing for what you don't have while it may have been right there the whole time. It also speaks of generations holding on to secrets that are so harmful. A really good read! Many thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for this ARC!

  • A beautifully written and poignant tale

    Right from the opening chapter, Leah Mercer’s A Mother’s Lie drew me in like a moth to a flame and I loved it. Emotionally charged, this sure did get the tears flowing. A heartbreaking page turner, this is the first book I have read from Leah and she absolutely has a new fan in me. They say that a change is as good as a holiday but, is the reverse true? Ali painfully changes her circumstances in an effort to ready herself for the birth of her beautiful baby. However, will things change even more than she expected when she connects with the couple next door and finds herself drawn into their world that is not all that it appears to be on the surface. And how does Ali’s grandmother Violet’s story tie into this tale? The chapters alternate between Ali in the present and her now departed grandmother Violet 13 months before, who both captured my heart. They felt so real to me, which is a credit to Leah Mercer with how she brings each vividly to life. Both of their stories got under my skin and my tears flowed when their secrets were revealed. Meg is also a fascinating character who’s story had me intrigued and who also crossed paths with Violet before her death. A Mother’s Lie is a beautifully written and poignant tale and is one I would definitely read again. A wonderful read which will be part of my best books for 2021.
