Marissa Irvine arrives at 14 Tudor Grove, expecting to pick up her young son Milo from his first playdate with a boy at his new school. But the woman who answers the door isn’t a mother she recognises. She isn’t the nanny. She doesn’t have Milo. And so begins every parent’s worst nightmare.
FOUR GUILTY WOMEN.
As news of the disappearance filters through the quiet Dublin suburb and an unexpected suspect is named, whispers start to spread about the women most closely connected to the shocking event. Because only one of them may have taken Milo – but they could all be blamed . . .
IN A COMMUNITY FULL OF SECRETS, WHO IS REALLY AT FAULT?
***Thanks to NetGalley and Bantam Press for an eARC of this book. The following review is my honest reflection on the text provided.
solid, good read:
Incredibly well-written, All Her Fault is a unique, unpredictable thriller. I was hooked within the first few pages; the stakes are sky-high, and the intensity and pace never let up.
Marissa is one of those incredibly rare people whose life doesn’t just seem perfect from the outside – it actually is perfect. She has the perfect husband, house, job, friends, and family until Milo’s disappearance changes everything, and Marissa’s whole world is falling apart. Her panic and desperation are vivid and relentless. On the other side of the equation, Jenny’s life seems to be falling apart before Milo is taken. Her marriage is rocky, she’s struggling to balance her work and family, she overthinks everything, and her mother-in-law is a nightmare. These seemingly opposite perspectives play off each other well to create a fast-paced, easy-to-read story.
I was impressed with how quickly this story got off the ground, and I would never have predicted the direction it ended up taking. A few of the details of the twists at the end were a little too implausible for reality, but I still thoroughly enjoyed All Her Fault and would highly recommend it to any fans of thrillers or twisty narratives.
