#BookReview – “The Mother-in-Law” by Judy Moore


After a whirlwind romance, a young woman from California makes a rash decision and marries a handsome Floridian after knowing him for only one month.
She gives up everything she knows to move cross country to live with her new husband, a widower, and his five-year-old son. 
Everything seems idyllic until they arrive at her husband's oceanfront home, and she meets her mother-in-law. There's something strange about the woman and the mother/son relationship. 
It's not long before her suspicions begin to overwhelm her as she becomes ensnared in the secrets and lies of her new family.


Victoria agreed to marry Brad Reynolds after only a month of dating, thinking her dreams of a happily ever after are about to come true. After leaving her job and moving across the country with Brad, she finally meets his adorable son, Andy, and his mother, Madeline. Her mother-in-law, however, isn’t exactly what she hoped for. As Victoria’s life begins to unravel, she realizes she’s made a hasty and possibly dangerous mistake. Though she loves Brad and now Andy, she can’t stay in Madeline’s household forever, but leaving isn’t an easy thing to do.
Wow! What a great mystery. Victoria is definitely a strong woman for putting up with all the crap she did. I felt sorry for Brad. His mother has manipulated and brawl beat him all his life, so it’s no wonder he was a weak man and obedient son. I couldn’t respect him at all. Madeline, though the villain, was the most interesting character in the story. She was so controlling and vicious, a great actress. The climax kept me on the edge of my seat. Really entertaining!
I don’t normally read mysteries, but the blurb for this story sounded interesting. If you love a good sabotage and murder mystery, give this book a chance!
5 Stars
