Books always come neatly packed and in perfect condition. The jackets contain a BOTM logo, and the back shows the month the book was selected.

This month’s selections all looked great (they always do), but I am going to talk about The Perfect Mother.

The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy: This book hooked me and hooked me quick!  It was a quick read – perfect for the beach, and it kept me guessing right up until the last pages. I was SO SURE I knew how this would end (I don’t want to spoil it), but I was totally 100% wrong.  There are a lot of characters to sort through (the May Mother’s isn’t a tiny group), but I didn’t find it confusing or hard to keep up with.  I am VERY excited that this is being made into a movie and am looking forward to the release (no date has been set, but Kerry Washington is starring in it).

Synopsis (from BOTM)

A night out. A few hours of fun. That’s all it was meant to be.

They call themselves the May Mothers—a group of new moms whose babies were born in the same month. Twice a week, they get together in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park for some much-needed adult time.

When the women go out for drinks at the hip neighborhood bar, they are looking for a fun break from their daily routine. But on this hot Fourth of July night, something goes terrifyingly wrong: One of the babies is taken from his crib. Winnie, a single mom, was reluctant to leave six-week-old Midas with a babysitter, but her fellow May Mothers insisted everything would be fine. Now he is missing.

What follows is a heart-pounding race to find Midas, during which secrets are exposed, marriages are tested, and friendships are destroyed. An addictive psychological thriller, The Perfect Mother is soon to be a major motion picture starring Scandal’s Kerry Washington.
