Book Of The Month - April

I've read some fantastic books since starting this blog and I'd like to give some of them a bit more recognition. So I've decided to add a new feature to the blog and give a special mention to one outstanding book each month. Feel free to add your thoughts of the chosen book in the comments below or even recommend an outstanding book of your own.

What if your best friend's child disappears? And it's all your fault.

This is exactly what happens to Lisa Kallisto - overwhelmed working mother of three - one freezing December in the Lake District. She takes her eye off the ball for just a moment and her whole world descend into nightmare. Her best friend's thirteen-year-old daughter Lucinda has gone missing and now, devastated by this and publicly blamed, Lisa sets out to right the wrong.

But as she begins peeling away the layers surrounding Lucinda's disappearance, Lisa learns that the quiet town she lives in isn't what she thought it was, and her friends might not be who they appear to be, either.
It's been a tough decision picking a Book of The Month for April as I've read some fantastic books this month. It took me a while to choose but Just What Kind Of Mother Are You? nudged itself to the front as I was so gripped by it, reading it in only a couple of days. I would like to mention Mystery of Mercy Close by Marian Keyes, The Death of Bees by Lisa O'Donnell and Queen's Gambit by Elizabeth Fremantle, all of which were in the running alongside Just What Kind Of Mother Are You?
Like I've said, I was gripped by Just What Kind Of Mother Are You? and was desperate to know who had taken Lucinda and what would happen to Lisa and her friendship with Kate. It must have been a terrible position for Lisa to be in so I sympathised with her from the start. She's a busy, frazzled mum and she made one mistake but one that will effect the lives of not only Lucinda and her family but Lisa's too.
It really is a fantastic book and my review will be here on the blog on Friday.
