READ MY BOOK REVIEW
𝗥𝗘𝗩𝗜𝗘𝗪 𝗦𝗡𝗔𝗣𝗦𝗛𝗢𝗧: I can see why this book is comparable to Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty! This is a juicy tale of suburban mothers gone wild with secrets and revenge!
The Mother Next Door is my first foray into Tara Laskowski’s novels, and I am so glad I took a chance on her novels. This book is certainly comparable to Big Little Lies as described in the blurb and I was itching to find out WHAT the truth of the matter really was. I love books like this; suburban dramas, moms gone bad, secrets, lies, gossip, and revenge! There’s just something to tantalizing about it and I eat them up at record speed! If you’re interested in books like this, then I highly recommend giving this one a try. You won’t regret it! I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for us in the future. Hopefully it’s something along the lines of this book because I’m always looking for novels like this.
I don’t want to spoil the plot for this book because it’s one of those page turners that you should really go into blind. I will say though that I liked the twist (didn’t love it but LIKED it) and was pleasantly surprised to see that I didn’t figure it out before it was revealed. Although I will admit that I do think there should have been a lot more consequences than there were… Which were none. For a book like this it seems that the ending was a little too easy. Sometimes this makes the book come off as unrealistic. Other than that, I gobbled this one up and would definitely recommend it to other readers!
