Review of A Good Mother


This is a fast paced legal thriller from a debut author. Thank you Hanover Square Press for my free review copy. A US army officer is stabbed to death by his wife while he is stationed in Germany.. The trial and main part of the story take place in the US. The officer’s wife Luz is on trial for his murder. There are some sub plots that weave into the story that are interesting. I found all the characters unlikeable but I was still invested in the book. I also thought some of the trial was over the top but this book is written by a legal professor who obviously knows more about this than me. The book moves at a good pace and is a good debut novel.
