Mummy’s Little Angel is the first place winner of World’s Best Story!
About the Book
Joanne didn’t believe that her life could become worse than it already was. She had lost everybody and everything she had loved. She was alone. Surely she had suffered enough? The press had called her identical twins psychopaths. Her Maggie. Her Annie. But she still loved them, even though one of them had killed her husband, Jeff. Joanne believed that his murder had been an accident. How could one of her girls be a murderer? She knew them better than anybody else. They were good girls really.
She just had to prove it.
The brutal murder of her god-daughter Laura had never been solved. Items were missing when Laura’s remains had been discovered: clues that could lead to the capture of her killer. One of them was Laura’s doll … the doll that Joanne later discovered in her home. Joanne is facing the most horrific dilemma of her life. Has the wrong woman been imprisoned? Could her child have used such brutality against her best friend? Or could both women be innocent after all?
She needs to find somebody for her daughter to confide in; somebody she will trust. She needs a miracle. There is only one person who can help. He is compassionate and caring, with an amazing ability to gain the trust of the most difficult patients. He is Joanne’s only hope. He is Jonathan Davies.
Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy Mummy’s Little Angel by JW Lawson in exchange for an honest review.
This is a book I wish I had saved to read Halloween night! Ms. Lawson has written an utterly unimaginable novel that kept me reading on, trying to figure out “whodunit” and, more importantly to me, why!
The plot was very well thought out. It was filled with twists and turns that just didn’t let up, depending on which narrator was telling the story. The story was told from three separate points of view and it was very difficult to determine which, if any, was telling the truth.
Ah, the truth… Each narrator had a version of the truth that was believable, but could also be picked apart by digging further into the evidence that had been presented, or looking for additional evidence. The additional evidence wasn’t easily found and there was plenty of misdirection involved!
The characters were superbly written. I’ve always wondered how a writer manages to write so convincingly the psychopathic antagonist. In the instance of Mummy’s Little Angel by JW Lawson, Ms. Lawson had the added complication of the psychopathic character being an “identical” twin. How would the distinction between the two children have been overlooked by parents or other adults in their lives?
I must admit to being totally gobsmacked by Mummy’s Little Angel by JW Lawson! I couldn’t figure out the who without it being pointed out to me by Ms. Lawson. Well played, Ms. Lawson! Very well played!
I am pleased to offer Mummy’s Little Angel by JW Lawson five steaming hot cups of Reviews by Room With Books coffee.
