Review: Pieces of Her - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

The #1 internationally bestselling author returns with a new novel in the vein of the New York Times bestsellers Pretty Girls and The Good Daughter—a story even more electrifying, provocative, and suspenseful than anything she’s written before.

What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all…?

Andrea Cooper knows everything about her mother Laura. She’s knows she’s spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Gullaway Island; she knows she’s never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she’s never kept a secret in her life. Because we all know our mothers, don’t we?

But all that changes when a Saturday afternoon trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a completely different side to Laura. Because it turns out that before Laura was Laura, she was someone completely different. For nearly thirty years she’s been hiding from her previous identity, lying low in the hope that no one will ever find her. But now she’s been exposed, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Twenty-four hours later Laura is in the hospital, shot by an intruder who’s spent thirty years trying to track her down and discover what she knows. Andrea is on a desperate journey following the breadcrumbs of her mother’s past. And if she can’t uncover the secrets hidden there, there may be no future for either one of them. . . .

Pieces of Her
By Karin Slaughter

Review: Pieces of Her

A sudden burst of unexpected violence upends a daughter’s life as she discovers her mother is not who she seems to be.

As always, Karin Slaughter takes you on quite the ride, rife with adrenaline-surging twists and turns in her latest standalone thriller—PIECES OF HER.

Thirty-one-year-old Andrea “Andy” Oliver is coasting through her life, without the kind of aspiration and purpose her parents hoped she’d have. She’s lived in New York City but failed to find success, then quite literally walked away from her life to move back home for her mother after her breast cancer diagnosis.

Dr. Laura Oliver is a loving mom and speech therapist, who’s content to live a quiet life in a small beachside town. When Laura and Andy’s lunch at the mall explodes into violence, Andy sees a chilling side to her mother she never would have imagined. The incident is the impetus which changes everything for their family.

Andy sees a chilling side to her mother—detached and shrewd. She soon discovers her mother has been hiding who she really is for the last thirty years. With the incident at the mall, however, the past comes barreling back at Laura, while also landing Andy in the crosshairs.

While Laura is in the hospital, Andy embarks on a dangerous journey to uncover all the pieces of her mother’s past in order to save them both from those who’ve vowed to keep a decades-long vendetta.

Secret identities, political upheaval, betrayal and family feuds all factor into this tense and twisty thriller. Slaughter continues to deliver—every book from her is exciting, never boring and always an adventure.
