Even perfect mothers have secrets…
Leah. She’s the perfect mum to ten-year-old Samuel, wife to loving husband Thomas, head of the PTA. But her closet is full of skeletons – and if the truth gets out, her world could be destroyed.
Annie. She’s the gangster’s moll with a brain. She might be a woman, but she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty to play the men at their own game. But what no one knows is the devastating secret haunting her.
Terry. He’s the king of Glasgow gangland, working his way up from estate to mansion. From drugs to guns, there’s nothing he won’t stop at to grow his dirty money. He might be a hard man, but his weakness is women.
As their three stories collide, the lives of each will never be the same. Because even perfect women hide dark secrets… Don’t they?
My Review : The Housewife
I’m not going to lie – I almost gave up on this book multiple times.
However, I’m so thrilled that I didn’t. Even though it took a long time for me to really sink into it, once I really got to know Annie, Terry, Leah and all their cohorts I was pleasantly surprised.
Taking us through a gangster’s life of drugs, guns and shady business dealings we see that sometimes these jobs are undertaken out of complete desperation.
Other times, it’s possible to get so wrapped up in paranoia that someone can literally lose their mind in the end.
I really got drawn into Leah’s story and how she was going to rectify her situation.
I was so engrossed in the story that I did not want it to end, and was left shocked with the final scenes.
