Summary

That's what he wants you to think....

A good mother doesn't forget things.

A good mother isn't a danger to herself.

A good mother isn't a danger to her baby.

You want to be the good mother you dreamed you could be.

But you're not. You're the bad mother you were destined to become.

At least that what he wants you to believe....

excellent storyline

I loved this audiobook from the very start, it kept my attention throughout and I couldn't wait for my daily commute to work to get lost in the story again

Horrendous

This is THE worst book I have read. The story is slow, boring and predictable. There was nothing thrilling and there was certainly no suspense. This is a book about how pathetic and weak a person can be and the ending certainly confirmed it.

Another woman portrayed as an idiot.

What would have made The Bad Mother better?

Nothing, this book was always going to fail.

What was most disappointing about Amanda Brooke’s story?

That again another author makes a woman completely stupid beyond belief. Adam is completely nasty, his comments are completely nasty, and I can't believe that someone would stay with a person who talks to them the way Adam does. Seriously, can we start to write stories about females that aren't victims, and show them as intelligent people that would walk away from someone who doesn't even try to be nice to her at all. Seriously, it's getting beyond a bloody joke.

Which scene was your favorite?

None.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No. Adam has no redeeming qualities, none. He is completely dislikeable. The fact that no one could see it was completely stupid. The guy didn't even attempt to be nice, and no one had an issue with him. People can't be that stupid.
