I married her son, but he couldn’t see her evil…
Charlotte’s dream wedding to Ethan was the happiest day of her life. She knew his mother, Anna, loved her only son, but her overbearing nature starts driving Charlotte insane. Ethan always claimed his mother accepted her as part of the family, but her gut instincts couldn’t be wrong.
To help the happy couple save for their first house together, Anna presents an offer they can’t refuse with a rent-free room in the family home. This is when Charlotte suspects Anna wants her boy back for good. Convinced she is out to destroy their marriage; Charlotte has a surprise that was about to bring them closer together or rip their relationship apart.
As tensions mount and Anna digs her claws in, Charlotte discovers a hidden family secret, but Anna’s manipulative nature ensures no one would believe her. Charlotte must survive a wave of cruelties and play the most vindictive mother-in-law she’s ever encountered at her own sinister game if her marriage is to survive a mother who can’t let go of the past.
Anna will stop at nothing to get what she wants…
REVIEW ~ NIKI PRESTON ~ 4 STARS
A great read that is a classic tale of she said/she said. Mother-in Law pitted against her new Daughter-in-law. Anna does not like Charlotte. She does not like the fact that Charlotte has taken away her son even less. She’s out to prove this is not a marriage made in heaven and she will end it. No matter what. Truly a vile Mother-in law who needs taking down a peg or two, is Charlotte the woman to do it? Will she just lose everything? More importantly who will Ethan believe?
The characters are created with a brilliant reality that I’m sure a few people can empathise with. Family feuds can be devastating and JA Andrews really draws us in. He has captivated the emotions with in this family perfectly. You really feel sorry for Charlotte but can also see some, just some of Anna’s feelings and poor Ethan is trying so hard to not become the man in the middle even though he absolutely is. There is plenty of suspense that is totally believable. This really could happen to any family, if you have a slightly unhinged mother. I thoroughly enjoyed His Mother’s Lies and I’m sure any Psychological thriller lovers will love it to.
