  • Loved!!!!!

    My Review: Wow, wow, wow!!!!! I’m speechless. Did I really just read that???? This is the first book I read by this author and I loved it. This book is part of a series but can totally be read as a stand alone. I have not read any of the other books in this series and I didn’t have any problems what so ever. This book follows Detective Jo and her partner trying to find out who murdered a poor innocent little girl. While they were trying to find this child killer there were more and more victims as the investigation continued. Was it just a coincidence or was there a serial killer on the loose? Who killed this precious girl and the others? Was it someone close to them? Was it an accident or was there something more sinister involved? You find out these answers and so much more. I want to start off by saying how amazing this book was. If you like a good mystery with a bunch of twists then this is the book for you. I loved Detective Jo. Even though she was battling her own demons she kept it together to solve the horrendous case of a child killing. In my mind those are the worst kind of killers. Who would want to kill an innocent, sweet, loving child? It’s so hard to stomach who would and they must be very sick in the head. With that being said what a sick, twisted, head spinning ending that was. I couldn’t believe who the killer was. I say that about a lot of books but this one I truly would’ve never guessed it in a million years. Way to go to this author for all the wonderful surprises. What really shocked me though was not even the identity of killer as much as who let it go on as long as it did. Now that person is the one who should rot in jail forever. I can’t really say too much more without giving it away. I’m telling you guys you will be shocked beyond belief. Kudos to MM Chouinard for an excellent book and I will be reading the rest of this series. Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Intriguing masterpiece

    FABULOUS crime thriller dealing with the investigation (by lead detective Jo) of the murder of a 5 year old girl which occurs in her school play ground. Well written, keeps the suspense high until the shocking conclusion. Enjoyed immensely & RECOMMEND highly. Thanks to NetGalley & Bookouture for this ARC in return for my honest review.

  • A brilliant addition to the series

    The one time you would think you would never have to worry about your daughter is when she is playing under the watchful eye of your best friend. So how does Gia’s beloved daughter Nicole disappear from the school playground and then tragically, be found dead. This horrific crime will test the resolve of Detective Jo Fournier, as she puts her own personal tragedy aside to catch a killer of the worst kind. The Other Mothers is another thrilling read in this brilliant series, which I just can’t get enough of! Right off the bat you are pulled in and are immediately hooked as M.M. Chouinard takes you on a fast paced and chilling ride, never letting up until its shocking outcome, which I was not expecting. Let me tell you, it took me awhile to get my racing heart back under control again once all was revealed! Detective Jo Fournier is such a fantastic character and she is one of my all time favourites. Her vulnerability is front and centre in this instalment, as she is still trying to come to terms with tragic recent events. The death of Nicole hits her hard but, it’s her tenaciousness in getting justice for the victims that makes her such a force to be reckoned with, as she puts her personal struggles aside. M.M. Chouinard has so many strengths as a writer but, what stands out to me the most is how she is able to keep the reader engaged from start to finish. The Other Mothers is another example of this. Perfectly written and masterfully plotted, the only criticism I have is, it ended all to soon! As I have said before when each instalment is released and what I will keep saying is, this is one of the best series I have ever read and I hope there are still many books to come. The Other Mothers can be read as a standalone but do yourself a favour and read this in order. You won’t be disappointed!

  • Extremely Impressive

    An impressive read following on from the other books in M.M. Chouinard's Detective Jo Fournier series. In this one, The Other Mothers, Gia Marchand's little girl, Nicole has disappeared whilst her best friend, Karen was meant to be looking after her during playground supervision at the local primary school - Briar Ridge Elementary in Harristown, New England. As Detective Jo Fournier starts her investigation Nicole's dead body is found but not everyone is surprised or phased by the suspicious death... I believe The Other Mothers would work as a self-contained read and I loved learning more about Jo. For me, she makes for a near-perfect main character with her inner strengths and vulnerability. Although not without flaws, she showed empathy, despite having personal difficulties of her own, and the camaraderie and bond she shared with her partner-in-crime, Detective Bob Arnett were entertaining and delightfully pleasing. They made the perfect team and Jo's relentlessness and motivation were admirable. Michelle M. Chouinard’s overall style wowed me again as did the wonderfully thrilling plot in this tale of secrets, criminality, suspicion and pure malice. I really appreciated Chouinard's ability to not only draw me into the sordid, dark story immediately but also keep me enthralled until the very last page. The level of tension that built throughout the story was noteworthy. For me, The Other Mothers has is all - a plot brimming with mystery, suspense with many twists, as well as family dynamics, characters that are real and believable and a killer ending that blew me away. Michelle M. Chouinard has become one of my favourite authors and I can’t wait to see what's next in this magnificent series. I received a complimentary copy of this novel, at my request, from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • A thrilling read with a shocking twist

    Detective Jo Fournier has a very difficult case ahead of her. At first she is called to an exclusive elementary school when five-year-old Nicole has disappeared. Sadly, Nicole‘s body as soon found. As Jo begins to delve into the case, one of the first people that she speaks to his Nicole‘s mother, Gia. Sadly Gia has not only lost a daughter, she discovers that she is pregnant and now knows that Nicole will never have the chance of possibly having a baby sister. Gia and other mothers volunteered at the school, and one of them was her best friend Karen who was the supervisor at the playground on the day that Nicole disappeared. Quite naturally, friction exists between the two women at the loss of Nicole while Karen was at the playground. It doesn't take Jo long to realize that someone knows what is going on. What’s more than evident is that someone is lying. As the story develops certain things are revealed about specific characters in this book. The book takes surprising twist and turns as these facts are slowly revealed. To make all matters worse, one of the teachers at the school suddenly dies. Why has a child and now a teacher lost their lives? I have read many thrillers over the years and always at least one surprising twist to come into play. However I will say, without a single spoiler, that the twist in this book I could never ever have expected. I have been thoroughly enjoying this series and this book, The Other Mothers, is truly an excellent read. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!
