Waiting On Wednesday: The Perfect Mother

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating!

The Perfect Mother
by Nina Darnton
Expected Publication Date: November 25, 2014
Synopsis from Goodreads

When an American exchange student is accused of murder, her mother will stop at nothing to save her.

A midnight phone call shatters Jennifer Lewis’s carefully orchestrated life. Her daughter, Emma, who’s studying abroad in Spain, has been arrested after the brutal murder of another student. Jennifer rushes to her side, certain the arrest is a terrible mistake and determined to do whatever is necessary to bring Emma home. But as she begins to investigate the crime, she starts to wonder whether she ever really knew her daughter. The police charge Emma, and the press leaps on the story, exaggerating every sordid detail. One by one, Emma’s defense team, her father, and finally even Jennifer begin to have doubts.

A novel of harrowing emotional suspense, The Perfect Mother probes the dark side of parenthood and the complicated bond between mothers and daughters.

Why I am waiting....
I just saw this one on a WoW last week and knew I want to read it! It reminds me a little of the Amanda Knox story in Italy.

    Here's my WoW!

  2. I thought Amanda Knox as I read the description also. Sounds like it could be a good one.

    My WoW:

  3. Oh, yes, this one is also on my list. I read Cartwheels, which seemed a bit like the Amanda Knox story, too, but this one sounds even more intriguing, as we will see more of the mother's perspective. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “SOMEONE IS WATCHING”

  11. This does sound interesting and it reminded me of Amanda Knox right away. I like true crime so even though this isn't one and I never really got into the Amanda Knox case, I might pick this one up.
