Prom Mon

 

Author: Laura Lippman

Publisher: William Morrow 

Date: 2023

📖 𝗛𝗮𝗽𝗽𝘆 𝗣𝘂𝗯 𝗗𝗮𝘆! 📖

Amber Glass is the antihero main character in this slow burning modern noir tale. 

This is the kind of book you savor because of the nuanced writing. Lippman slowly unfolds the story, intertwining past and present. But the slow burn doesn’t mean it’s slow paced. This will hook you because you’ll want to see where this twisted story goes. 

The story keeps you guessing about who is the real villain. Is it love struck teenage Amber who kept her pregnancy secret and caused the infant to die? Is it golden boy Joe, Amber’s prom date and father of her child, who abandoned Amber at prom? Is it a grown Amber scheming to insert herself back into Joe’s picture perfect life and marriage? Is it Joe who thinks he’s a good guy even though he occasionally steps out on his wife? 

Lippman is a master of this type of domestic thriller. She explores the questions of how well do we really know the people we love and just how far will seemingly ordinary people go to get what they want. 

Prom Mom is out today. It’s a must read and a great beach or pool read to finish out the summer. It’s a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ book for me and will be in my top ten favorites for the year. Thank you William Morrow Books  and NetGalley for the digital review copy.
