Synopsis: A mother’s worst nightmare, a chance at redemption, and a deadly secret that haunts a family across the generations.
There’s only room for one mother in this family.
Claire Abrams’s dreams became a nightmare when she passed on a genetic mutation that killed her little boy. Now she wants a second chance to be a mother, and finds it in Robert Nash, a maverick fertility doctor who works under the radar with Jillian Hendricks, a cunning young scientist bent on making her mark—and seducing her boss.
Claire, Robert, and Jillian work together to create the world’s first baby with three genetic parents—an unprecedented feat that could eliminate inherited disease. But when word of their illegal experiment leaks to the wrong person, Robert escapes into hiding with the now-pregnant Claire, leaving Jillian to serve out a prison sentence that destroys her future.
Ten years later, a spunky girl named Abigail begins to understand that all is not right with the reclusive man and woman she knows as her parents. But the family’s problems are only beginning. Jillian, hardened by a decade of jealousy and loss, has returned—and nothing will stop her from reuniting with the man and daughter who should have been hers. Past, present—and future converge in a mesmerizing psychological thriller from acclaimed bestselling author Kira Peikoff.
My Thoughts: Oooh boy, what a crazy book of science and revenge. This is the perfect tale of Twisted Science. Just because we can, should we?? I enjoyed Mother Knows Best quite a lot. It kept me turning the pages and racing to the end. If you're looking for a thriller that has a lot of science, then Mother Knows Best is the perfect read.
I was kind of hooked. I just found the whole premise so interesting. This kind of science might just be closer than we think, and that's kinda terrifying. Kira Peikoff did a great job of writing this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It was so interesting. I wasn't sure how this whole thing was going to end, where it was going to go, but it got me good.
I'd definitely recommend giving this a read if you are looking for a good thriller. I'm glad I got to read it.
