About The Book

All mothers have secrets…some are unforgivable
Kate Marshall lives an enviable life. Married to handsome, charming, James, owner of a successful company, she seems to have it all.
But falling pregnant at 45 was never part of the plan. Especially as Kate’s hiding a devastating secret – one that she’s been running from for twenty years.
So when ex-boyfriend Paul comes back into her life, threatening to expose the truth about what Kate did, the clock is ticking. Can she keep her secrets and finally be the mother she always dreamed of – or will her past lies destroy her perfect life?


My Thoughts

Does the perfect marriage exist?
Kate and James seem to have the perfect marriage, they never planned to have children until Kate gets pregnant, at 45, now the problems will start… Because she has a decision to make, but it will not be easy, her ex-boyfriend Paul is still on her life, sending messages to her. Or is it not him?
On the other side, there’s Kate’s mother, they don’t have a good relationship, there are so many lies and secrets between them that maybe now is time to clean the air before it’s too late…
This is a story of motherhood, secrets and half truths; the choices we make trying to be the best for the ones we love.
It was not difficult to understand Kate and her situation, she didn’t expect to get pregnant and now she has to choose. Her husband is totally against having kids but what happens if now she really wants to have them? Just thinking about the situation in my mind, I would surely have a lot of doubts about what to do in her case even without all the “dangerous” parts of the story, there’s no easy answer.
This is a story to read in one sit, the story is intriguing and the characters feel real, you can feel the tension surrounding you and the pain and fear in your own skin.
A Mother Like You is the intriguing read any book lover would enjoy, ready?
