Mother Dear #Book #Review
There’s only one thing worse than doing the unthinkable: what you’re willing to do to hide it.
Helen lives a decent, uncomplicated life. Satisfied in her career, she’s raising three happy teenagers, and her family has the most envied house on the street. Admittedly, she’s growing just a little disenchanted with her marriage to her workaholic husband, Werner. But that’s nothing she can’t fix. Then one day Helen comes home to something completely unexpected that threatens to shatter her carefully cultivated world.
For disaffected, young petty criminals Ralf and Brian, it was a scheme to make some cash: a quick home invasion. The targets they’ve chosen are Helen and Werner. With Ralf as lookout, Brian disappears into Helen and Werner’s house. But he never comes out.
And Helen’s nightmare is just beginning. She can’t possibly imagine how much worse it can get or just how far she’ll need to go to protect her family.
Helen and Werner have the perfect marriage, or do they? When a burglar breaks in while they are home, Helen defends herself but Werner wants to keep it a secret. There's only one other person that suspects what happened the night Brian disappeared. Ralf is determined to find him.....Be careful what you wish for.....
Although this book was slightly suspenseful, it wasn't as thrilling as I'd hoped. Maybe it's the difference in cultures, I don't know. But I couldn't fathom leaving teenagers with a babysitter/grandparent. I was the sitter at 13, not the other way around. Also, the disposal of the body made no sense. If you work in a different area and your boss finds you out of your way in disposal, not once but twice, don't you think she would question why you're there. Sorry, this book was really badly written and not well thought out.
