What A Mother Knows: A Novel by Leslie Lehr

Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book.
about book:

An unsettling, emotional and suspenseful novel of the unshakable bonds of motherhood, in which Michelle Mason not only loses her memory after a deadly car crash, but can't find her 16-year-old daughter, the one person who may know what happened that day. But the deeper Michelle digs, the more she questions the innocence of everyone, even herself. A dramatic portrayal of the fragile skin of memory, What A Mother Knows is about finding the truth that can set love free.

my thoughts:

I absolutely loved reading What A Mother Knows by Leslie Lehr!  I couldn't put this book down - I was turning the pages so fast on my kindle that it froze and I screamed in frustration waiting for it to unfreeze (UGH!).  Anyhow, my point is that the book was riveting.  Reading about Michelle's struggle to figure out what happened to her and her daughter was nail-biting.  I'm not a mom, but I can only imagine the pain and terror Michelle must have felt not knowing where her daughter was or what was happening to her.  Plus, there is the tried and true 'mother's instinct' that kicks in when something is amiss and believe you me, it kicks into overdrive in Michelle and once it does - there is no turning back!

Twists and turns drive this story all the way through - you can't help but find yourself second guessing Michelle's actions or even your own predictions for what is about to happen (it is crazy fun!).  Especially when you begin to realize that maybe Michelle's memory isn't as reliable as you had thought it to be.  I swear I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I read this book and I loved every minute of it.  This is one book that I would happily recommend to everyone anyone who is a fan of mystery/thriller/suspense novels - you will love this book!
