      “A car is like a mother-in-law – if you let it, it will rule your life.” (Jamie Lerner)

Emily meets Adam and the wheels spin and romance is in the air. Emily had previously been in a relationship where she has lost her main squeeze to her best friend having come upon them in what might be classified as a compromising position. Devastated Emily, finds eventually a man who she think is her perfect man, Adam. He is loving, generous, kind, handsome, and wealthy. He is a wonderful package all tied up perfectly and love blooms ever so quickly. Their romance takes off and soon it is time for Emily to meet Adam’s mother, Pammie. …and wow! the sparks start to fly as Pammie who is a master manipulator, twists words and actions to make it appear that Emily is always in the wrong. Adam and his brother dote on mommie dearest and turn a very deaf ear to Emily’s protestations. This is a real recipe for disaster as Pammie does what she does so well, manipulates and plays a merciless and exploitative game with Emily. Will this relationship and future marriage have this couple even getting to the altar? Would you stay with a man who always seems to take his mother’s side?
Ms Jones takes us on a wild ride with these characters, making those of us who ever had nasty mother in laws cheer Emily on. We think we know the inner workings of Pammie. We have met her type before. We know she thinks that her son is perfect and that no woman alive will ever be good enough. However, there is a major twist in he road and as they author weaves all of this together, we are hit with a surprise as all is revealed and as often is the case all is not as it seems.
I enjoyed this tale of manipulation and exploration of a mother son relationship oftentimes wishing I could help Emily have Pammie take a very long walk off a very short pier.
Many thinks to Sandie Jones, Minotaur Books and NetGalley for a copy of this fast paced thriller.

Her debut novel, The Other Woman, is a psychological thriller about the destructive relationship between a woman and her partner’s mother.

If Sandie wasn’t an author she’d be an interior designer as she has an unhealthy obsession with wallpaper and cushions!
