About the author:
Sarah Naughton’s debut novel, The Hanged Man Rises, was shortlisted for the Costa children’s award. It was followed by a second young adult thriller, The Blood List. Her thrillers for adults, Tattletale and The Other Couple (Orion) are Amazon bestsellers. Sarah lives in London with her husband and sons.
The Mothers by Sarah J Naughton is a unique, thrilling and gripping read that had me hooked almost from the very beginning. This is the story of five women, all mothers, all with their own secret that they’re desperate to keep hidden. I was drawn into the lives of these women from the outset, soon becoming invested in each individual story. And when the reserved Bella’s husband goes missing, the police soon begin to look for answers. Will they be able to find the missing man? Or is there more to his disappearance than at first meets the eye? And what exactly are the secrets these five women are harbouring?
I was on tenterhooks throughout, desperate to know what was going to happen next, with the story keeping me on the edge of my seat. There were plenty of twists and turns to keep me guessing and the execution of the story was exceptionally well done, leading to a thrilling and satisfying conclusion.
The Mothers is a unique and brilliantly written story, with interesting characters who I wanted to know more about. The backstory of each woman is well thought out and relatable, taking us on a journey of intrigue and discovery that once started is impossible to put down. Sarah J Naughton has written an addictive, thought provoking thriller that I thoroughly enjoyed and I can’t wait to see what this talented author has in store for us next!
