Summary

Bloomsbury presents Mother May I by Joshilyn Jackson, read by Joshilyn Jackson. 

It's every mother's worst nightmare.

"If you ever want to see your baby again, go home.

Tell no one.

Do not call the police.

Do not call your husband.

Be at your house by 5:15 PM.

Or he’s gone for good...."

Marrying into a family with wealth, power and connections, Bree now has the perfect life: an adoring lawyer husband, two talented teenage daughters and a baby boy. 

But that perfect life is about to break. Watching from the balcony as her daughter rehearses for her school play, Bree’s baby vanishes. And then her phone rings.... 

To get her son back alive, Bree must complete one small but critical task. It seems harmless enough, but this one action comes with a devastating price. And now Bree finds herself complicit in a terrible crime, caught up in a tangled web of secrets that threatens to destroy everything she holds dear. 

Revenge doesn't wait for permission.

Critic reviews

"A gripping domestic thriller [...] Jackson knows how to ratchet up the suspense." (Publishers Weekly)

"Joshilyn Jackson does it again with this explosive, white-knuckle read about a mother who will stop at nothing to protect her family. Terrifying, timely and thought-provoking, I couldn't tear my eyes away from Mother May I." (Mary Kubica, New York Times best-selling author of The Other Mrs)

"Mother May I sets a new standard for the genre: it’s razor-sharp, merciless and masterful - Rose Carlyle, author of The Girl in the Mirror)

Loved it.

Another wonderful story by Joshilyn. I search her out on audible and cant wait until the next one. Narrating her own books gives the characters extra life.
