I give The Mother-in-Law by Judy Moore, 4 stars.
Victoria can’t believe what she just did. She got married to a man she’s only known about a month — in Vegas no less! But there is something about Brad. She fell in love with him right away and goes with her instinct. So she says I Do, quits her job and packs up her former life to move across the country to Florida. She knows Brad has a son and a mother and she is anxious to meet them both. She quickly realized that she jumped in without looking. Brad’s mother is a piece of work. She can’t seem to let Brad go. Is it just the pain of him some belonging to someone else? Or does go much deeper than that?
This was an interesting book. I have to admit, I didn’t know just what to expect. The “evil mother-in-law” has been done many times. But this book does it with a twist. I can’t really say too much without giving anything away, but the ending was surprising and yet satisfying too. The characters were very realistic. I could them being a family I read about in the newspaper.
A suspenseful, gripping story, I highly recommend this book.
