About The Book

She thought they wanted her baby. But they won’t stop there.
Roz is young, penniless and pregnant. All she wants is to be the perfect mother to her child, but the more she thinks about her own chaotic upbringing, the more certain she is that the best life for her baby is as far away as possible from her hometown in Ireland.
Determined to do the right thing, Roz joins an elite adoption service and can’t believe her luck. Within days she is jetting to New York to meet a celebrity power couple desperate for a child of their own. Sheridan and Daniel are wealthy and glamorous—everything Roz isn’t. Her baby will never go hungry, and will have every opportunity for the perfect life. But soon after Roz moves into their plush basement suite, she starts to suspect that something darker lurks beneath the glossy surface of their home.
When Roz discovers she isn’t the first person to move in with the couple, and that the previous woman has never been seen since, alarm bells start ringing. As the clock ticks down to her due date, Roz realises her unborn baby may be the only thing keeping her alive, and that despite her best intentions, she has walked them both into the perfect nightmare…


My Thoughts

Rosz has to make the most difficult decision of her life, give her child to adoption or abort; she knows she can take care of her… So she decides to search for a good family to take care of her unborn baby and give her the life she can only dream of. Seems a good idea, don’t you think? The problem with the “chosen” family is that they have a secret agenda, making Rosz fear for her life and her unborn daughter. Is it worth risking her life to have “The Perfect Mother”? You’ll have to read the book to discover the truth!
Rosz is a naïve Irish girl, she wants the “perfect” mother for her daughter and when a very rich family from the US shows interests in her, she can not see all the weird things surrounding them until it’s too late. The family is damaged, deeply disturbing and with a really dangerous agenda!
Since the beginning the reader can feel that the family is not good, the alarms sound loud and clear, but at the same time you can understand how Rosz simply wants to see the good things, she wants the best for her little one and if this means that she has to be kept as a secret, be it.
I loved how Caroline Mitchell has done a great job with this story, it’s the typical movie where the spectator spends half the movie shouting at the characters to be careful while they ignore them! The only good thing is that Rosz has an ally inside her “perfect” prison, but she doesn’t know who and if they will really help her or if it’s a trap… So many characters with secrets and lies that you never know what to expect next on the following page! This is a book to remind us about the important things in life and that sometimes what we are looking is just in front of us!
I read this book in one stand, the need to know more it was more important than any other thing in my life! 😉
So, take my advice and clean your schedule for the next hours, since you’ll need them to read this book! So… ready to discover “The Perfect Mother”?
