My rating: 5 of 5 stars
K L Slater is one terrific author. Her uncanny ability to use people around us to instill fear in our hearts is exceptional. Judi is a grandmother whom we know.Someone who loves helping her son and grandchildren, some one who wants to feel useful and needed especially at an age where she is also enduring menopause, suffering from unknown emotions and imbalances. The equation of mom-in-law and daughter-in-law is very tricky, some of us are lucky to find the perfect balance while others mostly lose the race and always the man is caught in the middle. The characters have been drawn perfectly with Ben as the clueless son/ boyfriend, Amber with her need to wrest control from Judi and Judi who would never let go of her grandchildren.
The story takes a very interesting path and ends with a surprising bang. Brilliant!

How far would you go to protect your family?
Single dad Ben is doing his best to raise his children alone, with the help of his devoted mother Judi. Life isn’t easy, but Judi’s family means everything to her and together, they manage.
Then Ben meets Amber. Everyone thinks this is a perfect match for Ben but Judi isn’t sure … there’s just something about Amber that doesn’t add up.
Ben can’t see why his mother dislikes his new girlfriend. And Amber doesn’t want Judi anywhere near her new family. Amber just wants Ben and the children.
The further Judi delves into Amber’s personal life, the closer she gets to shocking secrets that could change everything. And Judi must make a decision that could lead to the most disastrous consequences.
