Pieces of Her Karin Slaughter



45136486. sy475
Andrea Oliver's mother, Laura, is the perfect small-town mum. Laura lives a quiet but happy life in sleepy beachside Belle Isle. She's a pillar of the community: a speech therapist, business owner and everybody's friend. And she's never kept a secret from anyone. Or so Andrea thinks.

When Andrea is caught in a random violent attack at a shopping mall, Laura intervenes and acts in a way that is unrecognisable to her daughter. It's like Laura is a completely different person - and that's because she was. Thirty years ago. Before Andrea. Before Belle Isle.

Laura is hailed as a hero for her actions at the mall but 24 hours later she is in hospital, shot by an intruder, who's spent decades trying to track her down.

What is Andrea's mother trying to hide? As elements of the past return and put them both in danger, Andrea is left to piece together Laura's former identity and discover the truth - for better or worse - about her mother. Is the gentle, loving woman who raised her also a violent killer?

My thoughts:
Ratings :4
Would I recommend it ? Yes
Would I read anything else by this author?yes because I'm slowly getting into one of her other series.
Andrea thought she knew every thing about her mother 's life as well as her own but when a random violent happens right in front of her ,she begins to see a side of her mother she didn't know ,which takes her down a dark path to secrets that wasn't ever to be knowing or out in the open. This book had me question stuff about Andrea's mother like is she really a hero or a murder that needs to pay the price , the more you read the more you find out about her mother's life and the lies she told , it will keep you pulled into the story and your want to keep reading it to find out , how far will someone go to keep these dark series as secrets . And is her mother a hero or a murder . With that said I want to thank Netgalley for letting me read and review it .
