Today is my younger sister Tiffany’s birthday. So I thought it would be a good day to post my review of Mummy’s Little Angel so she can see I’m not the worst sister she could have had! Happy birthday Tater Nuts!
Joanne didn't believe that her life could become worse than it already was. She had lost everybody and everything she had loved. Surely she had suffered enough? The press had called Joanne's identical twins psychopaths. Her Maggie. Her Annie. But she still loved them, even though one of them had killed her husband, Jeff. Joanne believed that his murder had been an accident. How could one of her girls be a murderer? She knew them better than anybody else; they were good girls really. She just had to prove it... The brutal murder of Joanne's goddaughter, Laura had never been solved. Items had been missing when Laura's remains were discovered: clues that could lead to the capture of her killer. One of them was Laura's doll ... the doll that Joanne later discovers in her home. Joanne is facing the most horrific dilemma of her life. Has the wrong woman been imprisoned? Could her child have used such brutality against her best friend? Or could both women be innocent after all? Joanne needs to find somebody for her daughter to confide in; somebody she will trust. She needs a miracle. There is only one person who can help. He is compassionate and caring, with an amazing ability to gain the trust of the most difficult patients. He is Joanne's only hope. He is Jonathan Davies.
Holy crap is this book disturbing or what? I went into Mummy’s Little Angel thinking it would be a good book, probably predictable like many Thrillers tend to be. I’m excited to say it was most definitely not predictable or like anything else I’ve ever read. This review may be a bit hard for me to write as I don’t want to give anything away.
I seriously had no idea what was going to happen at the end. Was Annie guilty? Was Maggie? Who the hell did what to who? These people are crazy! One of the things I loved about this story is we are given the story with certain details left out that you are given later. The thing with those details though, is that you don’t realize they are missing until you get them. That probably sounds really weird lol.
The characters in Mummy’s Little Angel are some of the sickest I’ve ever read about. There is only one other author that I can even think of who has characters this twisted, and that is M. Stratton. Her After the Storm and Bender series are pretty sick, and I think this book rates right up there with them and I loved every despicable minute. Just when I thought they couldn’t be any worse, they were lol.
Annie was definitely my favorite, and maybe it’s because I could identify with her about certain things, or it could have been because a good portion of the story is told from her POV. My only complaint about this book is the perspectives it’s told from. I like that we get the story from several different sources and they all mesh together to make a great story and all that. I don’t like that it is sort of told in Journal form, but some of the stuff wouldn’t be journal type entries. I would have preferred the non-journal stuff to have been maybe more clearly divided from the entries themselves, but it’s not my book. Even with my dislike for that, I still absolutely loved this book.
I would definitely recommend Mummy’s Little Angel to anyone looking for a great Thriller that has a strong stomach and somewhat twisted personality. Keep in mind, there are violent and trigger type scenes, so if you are sensitive like that, you might want to skip this one.
