A Mother Like You by Ruby Speechley

5/5 stars!

To be released on November 4, 2020

All mothers have secrets…some are unforgivable

Kate Marshall lives an enviable life. Married to handsome, charming, James, owner of a successful company, she seems to have it all.

But falling pregnant at 45 was never part of the plan. Especially as Kate’s hiding a devastating secret – one that she’s been running from for twenty years.

So when ex-boyfriend Paul comes back into her life, threatening to expose the truth about what Kate did, the clock is ticking. Can she keep her secrets and finally be the mother she always dreamed of – or will her past lies destroy her perfect life?

Wow! This book kept me guessing the whole time! Just when one secret is realized there is another one that pops up! In the beginning I felt the book was slow especially since I was not the biggest fan of the characters. However around halfway through I discovered my love for the writing and the story. I was able to connect with the characters and feel for them as one by one their secrets came out and shaped their lives. Ruby does a wonderful job of painting the picture of the various people and how they came to be how they are.

If you like books with secrets that get revealed through out or books with complex family relationships then you have to read ‘A Mother Like You!’ I would say to curl up with this book while drinking some calming camomile tea like Kate in the book!

Until next time! That’s the tea!
