I read a review of The Mother-In-Law by Sally Hepworth on a blog and decided to reserve it at my local library. I'm pleased I did as it's a book I really enjoyed.
"When they first met, Lucy's mother-in-law, Diana, never really approved of her.
That was five years ago.
Now, Diana has been found dead, a suicide note near her body claiming she no longer wanted to live because of a battle with cancer.
But the autopsy finds no cancer. The autopsy does find traces of poison and suffocation.
Why would Diana lie? Why was her will changed at the eleventh hour? And why do the police get the sense that everyone in this perfect family knows a little more than they are letting on?"
I enjoyed how the book was written, mixing what's happening in the present and going back in time to unravel the mystery, it keeps the suspense going right to the very end. The characters were interesting and I enjoyed getting to know them.
I haven't read anything by this author before but I shall look out for more of her books. I'd definitely recommend this one.
