“The Perfect Son” by Lauren North

I’m thrilled that I was selected by NetGalley to read and review “The Perfect Son” by Lauren North!

“A captivating start that stays strong! “The Perfect Son” is an unpredictable, on the edge of your seat read! You’ll love every minute-even when you don’t!”-Green Gables Book Reviews

Imagine waking up in the hospital. Your husband died a few months ago in a terrible accident. You’ve been stabbed. Your 8-year-old son is missing. No one will listen to you.

You know who is behind his disappearance and your stabbing. Your brother in law and your grief counselor are to blame. No one will listen to you. Where is your son? Where is Jamie?

That’s the start of Lauren North’s fabulous new book, “The Perfect Son”.

Jamie and Tess have slowly been rebuilding their world since Tess’s husband, Mark, died suddenly in an accident a few months ago. Jamie has been the only reason for Tess to get up in the morning and try to get through each day. They have been connecting with each other slowly through small moments, like walks to and from school and watching TV together.

When grief counselor Shelley enters their life, there’s a glimmer of hope. Jamie and Tess both like Shelley and she brings positive energy to their grey world. But, Tess starts to wonder why Shelly is really there to help her.

Brother in law, Ian, seems like he wants to help. But, Tess just can’t trust him. Why does he keep hounding her? She doesn’t know the answers to the questions he keeps asking. Why can’t he leave her and Jamie alone?

Then, a few months later, Tess is in the hospital, stabbed-and Jamie is gone.

A great book! 5 stars!

I love to read! I usually have two books that I am reading at once. I always have an audiobook playing in the car and a “real book” that I read whenever I can.
