Sally Hepworth, Author of “The Mother-in-Law” has written a captivating, intriguing, and suspenseful novel. The Genres for this Novel are Fiction, Mystery, and Suspense.  Someone always has something to say about their Mother-in-Law.  Various comedy shows portray the Mother-in-Law/ Daughter-in-Law relationships in humor, satire, and intense dislike. “Monster-in-Law”, a movie, with Jane Fonda and Jennifer Lopez is one romantic comedy where the Mother-In-Law will do anything to destroy her son’s relationship.

Sally Hepworth has taken a unique approach to the “Mother-in Law” in her novel. Diana, the Mother-in-Law has been found dead. One of the questions asked is it suicide or murder? The author describes her characters as complex, complicated, greedy, and dysfunctional. Lucy has certainly tried to please her mother-in-law, and has wanted some positive feedback. Nothing does seem good enough.

Both Lucy and Diane “tell” their stories. The other members of the family do as well.  I appreciate that Sally Hepworth discusses the importance of family, love and hope, with a sense of humor. I would highly recommend this unpredictable novel to readers, who enjoy a suspenseful mystery.
