The Mother in Law by Judy Moore

Four Stars

That lady was a total witch. I understand wanting to protect your family but she was obsessed and extremely possessive. Victoria needs nerves of steel and an abundance of patience. This story had all the fears women thing about come to life. We all fear disappointment and never being enough. I didn’t like Brad a whole lot. He didn’t show any willingness to put a stop to his mom’s craziness. The author presented this story very well. The author included an softness and warmth but placing Victoria in a position where she had to care for a child that was not her own. A good read for some laughter and crazy.

The Mother-in-Law by Judy Moore
4 out of 5 Stars

This book is the physical manifestation of the fear every girl has when she is searching for her potential life long partner. Evil Mother-In-Law.. Victoria feels that she has got it all. Handsome man, handsome house, handsome life, or so she thinks, until she meets her mother-in-law…who is straight up evil. I mean, there is Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th Evil and then there is this woman. This book is incredibly suspenseful. As the plot thickens and the details unravel, you will find yourself flipping, (or in my case tapping) the pages faster and faster to find out what happens. When secrets of Brad and his Mother start to unfurl, Victoria starts to understand that this isn’t at all what she signed up for when she said Till death do us part.

This author created a very suspenseful and detailed story. I was drawn in from the very first chapter. I loved every last minute of it. Highly recommended.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Mother-in-Law by Judy Moore was a suspenseful read that kept you on the edge of your seat. At times, I could not turn that pages quick enough to see what was to happen next – I was completely involved in the continuing story. Victoria and Brad had a love that couldn’t be ignored and they both grabbed on to it and pursued that relationship to it’s fullest. The drama immediately begins as they moved forward to spend their lives together – enter the mother-in-law. Judy Moore has given the allure of evil incarnate in this story in the form of a mother-in-law. However, not everyone sees the facade that is seen from the outside. The story continues to build and you really don’t know which way the author will have the story climb to until it all comes to a peak. Truly a well written suspense with a remarkable ending.

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.

The Mother-In-Law by Judy Moore
4 Stars!!!!

I literally had chills reading this book. The author has really written a very twisted spine chilling book
that makes my mother-in-law look tame. I really found this author’s writing style to be refreshing and a step out of my comfort genre was really nice.

The characters are very relatable. I found myself drawn into the world and it felt as though I was Victoria. I really could relate with a mother-in-law who doesn’t like the wife, but this one really made me see just how fortunate I was. This book is very well written and all be it twisted with the plot it was a great read. I admit I don’t normally go for this type of book but I was very glad to have read it and gotten out of my normal genre. I would read more from this author in future.

The Mother in Law is a great read from Judy Moore. This is my first book from this author, and after reading this book I would definitely buy more of her work.
I found the book to be a little slow to begin with, as the author laid the foundations to the story- there was some information that really wasn’t needed, a lot of details that slowed the flow and just seemed to draw out/prolong the lead up into the story. The book is promoted as a thriller, but I felt that it was more ‘suspenseful’ and didn’t quite make it to thrilling, because there needed to be more tension, drama, intrigue and gripping developments earlier on in the plot to make it a true ‘thrilling’ experience. Having said that though, this story is still very good, and I would recommend it as I did enjoy reading it. I was shocked at how evil, conniving, deceitful and vicious the mother in law was, and the last half of the book held my attention completely as the story unfolded.
I was rooting for Victoria, Brad and Andy- but Brad frustrated me at times when he couldn’t see how his mother was manipulating everything and everyone. Even when things were revealed, he still didn’t take real decisive action. I just wanted to shake him and tell him to get his act together.
I look forward to reading more from Ms. Moore in the future.

Thank you, Ms. Moore!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Mother In Law by Judy Moore was so much more than the synopsis indicated. I believe there were a few times when I actually gasped while reading it, especially at the end. What an ending it was too. I’m not sure what I was expecting before I read this book but it was beyond anything I could have expected or imagined.

There are so many things I could say about the characters and the story itself but I don’t know if I would be able to do it justice with my description and I’m afraid of spoiling something. This is a love story with many layers of others things.

This book is a must read if you like love with some mystery and a lot of oh my goodness.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Mother-in-Law was a thrilling and creepy 5 star read.

Victoria and Brad met in Las Vegas during training and end up with a quicky wedding. Brad takes Victoria home to Florida where she meets his mom and son, Andy. Lets just say his mother is quite interesting.

The home they have is right on the beach and is beautiful. Victoria is ready to move forward with her new family, but mother has other plans. And she finds out from Brad that mommie dearest owns the house they are all living in she is not happy. This could not be happening -Victoria

Things seem to go well for awhile than all heck breaks loose. Be prepared for some twists and turns and edge of your seat moments. I was floored at some of the things that happened.

I instantly disliked Brad’s mother, she was controlling and evil. I didn’t like how she treated Andy at all. Brad also pushed my buttons as well, it was like he just didn’t get what was happening at times and he needed a backbone when it came to his mother. The ending OMG, I didn’t see any of it coming. This is my first read from Judy Moore and I was pulled right in, I can’t wait to read more from her.

My Rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Mother-in-Law by Judy Moore was an okay read about how boundaries can get blurry and how obsession can turn deadly.

Not my first read by this author, so I was excited to get my hands on this read. It played out kind of how I expected but still a pretty okay read overall.

I have to say, I wasn’t as drawn in as I was with this author’s other works. For a fast read, I found the build up a little too blunt and straightforward, and there wasn’t much mystery. There was so much that could have been done, and for me, this read kind of missed the mark.

The overall plot was good, I liked the characters, the twist, turns and, I very much liked the ending. There is a bit of a creep factor and, I think with a bit more work this book can rise up from just being an okay read to, something special. The actual writing is pretty good, a little choppy here and there, but I liked the flow and tone. Right away you know this isn’t going to be light hearted, and once the actual sinister plot got under way, I enjoyed the story that much more.

Overall this book has promise, and I do recommend you give it a go. Like I said the plot is good, and the twist and turns are engaging and interesting. Though I have mixed feelings, you might have a completely different reaction. So please take my recommendation and my approval, that this book will give you the creep factor and have you questioning when a seemly platonic relationship is normal, or abnormal.

Happy Reading

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

THE MOTHER-IN-LAW is a super quick read and I was able to speed right through it. It is a little predictable, but I assumed that going into it. I read the blurb before picking up the book so knew what the story was about. Therre were no surprises as the book developed.

The stories gets to the point right away, everything is laid out clearly and concisely so I wasn’t bogged down by too much detail and it kept me entertained from beginning to end.

I would read this author again and I recommend this story if you are looking for a quick suspense.
