Review & Giveaway: The Wrong Mother by Sophie Hannah



Sally had an affair. She was exhausted and in desperate need of a break. When her business trip was unexpectedly cancelled, she decided to get away anyway. She met Mark and their tryst began. They talked about lives they lead, about their work and about their families. When the vacation came to an end, the two parted ways thinking they would never see each other again.

One night while Sally and her husband are watching TV and to Sally's surprise, Mark's name comes up on the news. To her surprise, his wife and child have both been killed. When they show Mark's picture, Sally realizes that the man she was with was not really Mark, her short term lover was using the identity of someone else. Now she is in panic mode and scared for her family. Will she be able to protect her family from this madman that she once shared a bed with?

I'm addicted. Now I have to go out and buy all of her other books. Seriously. This was a phenomenal read that blew my mind. I actually received an ARC of this at the beginning of the summer, so I had actually read it a while ago. I am still in a daze over how wonderfully thrilling this book was. If you aren't going to buy it, at least enter my giveaway because I really think you all could get hooked on Sophie's writing. If you do, maybe we could start a club. LOL.

Stop by and check out Sophie's website.



Sophie writes all different kinds of books. She is a master at Crime Fiction, Short Stories, Poetry, Children's books and more. Her upcoming book A ROOM SWEPT WHITE will be available for purchase in March 2010.

  42. I entered yesterday, at least I thought I did. I was however flat on my back due to a myelogram and could have made a mistake while trying to type. I was reading my emails and read your newsletter and review of "The Wrong Mother" and knew I definitely had to enter. It sounds like it would be a stay up all night, forget chores and don't bother me, I'm reading type of book. +1
