Happy Friday! Today on the blog I’m sharing another book review because I could not take my nose out of this book. Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica is a gripping novel of psychological suspense. I literally finished this book in 2 sittings, which says a lot because it once took me an entire year and 3 months to finish a book. I just wasn’t as dedicated, okay?! This is the first novel I’ve read that was written by Mary Kubica, but it won’t be my last.
A quick summary of the book: Pretty Baby focuses on a woman named Heidi who lives in Chicago and works at a non-profit. One day, it’s pouring rain and Heidi sees a young woman and her four-month-old baby on the train platform. Aftwerwards, Heidi cannot get these two out of her head. After watching the young woman for a few days, Heidi eventually approaches her and invites her to a diner. Heidi’s suspicions are confirmed. The young woman, who’s name is Willow, and her baby are homeless. Heidi invites Willow and her baby into her home, which as you can imagine does not go over well with Heidi’s husband and pre-teen daughter. As both Heidi and Willow’s dark past unravel, you get to see that there is more to each character than meets the eye. The whole situation quickly turns into a downward spiral. This novel is only $12 on Amazon! I highly recommend it to anyone that likes suspense novels.
What are your plans for the weekend? I’m probably going to lay low because I’ve been sick all week and finally feel like a normal person again. Being sick is literally my least favorite thing in the world. Let me know if you end up snagging this book. I definitely plan on reading more novels by Mary Kubica!
