All Her Fault – Book Review

Before I give my review for ”All Her Fault”, I want to praise the cover. Reading in between the lines (WHEN THE WORST HAPPENS THERE’S ALWAYS SOMEONE TO BLAME) You get the feeling that the author ”Andrea Mara”, is informing her audience that women would automatically get the blame when something goes wrong.

As a Mum, who always had to go to work, I had to make some difficult choices. My husband, supportive throughout, always said it was up to me. I changed careers when my son, who was diagnosed with autism, so I could spend more time with him. I don’t regret it, as I was able to spend quality time with him and my daughter while they were growing up.

In the same way the female protagonists, and antagonists, are left to feel they are to blame, when ”Milo” a four year old boy goes missing. It is every parents nightmare. When he is eventually found, his mum, Marissa thinks it is over. The big reveal, near the end, came as a complete shock to me. A newspaper article, which made me smile, and the open end finally made sense.

A woman to blame for hiring the wrong nanny? A nanny to blame for kidnapping? A mum to blame for working, and not thinking of her child? All these women held accountable in a story with so many different twists, I was left reeling with the ending.

All I can say is, watch out for the inference, and clues to the real culprit.

Andrea Mara, I can only read in awe, a female author, with an immense talent for writing a best seller. A top ten bestseller, it was an amazing read.

A definite five out of five stars from me.
