Pretty Baby By: Mary Kubica/ Book Review



Heidi Wood has always been a charitable women. Still, her husband and daughter are horrified when Heidi returns home one day with a young women named Willow and her four month-year old baby in tow. Disheveled and apparently homeless, this girl could be a criminal-or worse. Nevertheless, Heidi invites Willow and the baby to take refuge in their home, despite her family’s objections. As clues into Willow’s past begin to surface, Heidi is forced to decide how far she’s willing to go to help a stranger. What starts as an act of kindness quickly spirals into an unrelenting web of lies and a story far more twisted than anyone could have anticipated.


This book is a Psychological Thriller! 414 pages!

This story is told by three people Heidi, her husband Chris, and Willow. Where to begin this book was so good!!! Heidi sees a girl with her baby at a train station on her way to work and wonders why this girl is there with a baby in the cold, she can’t stop thinking about this girl all day and everyday until she sees her again still with the same clothes the suitcase and the baby. She starts to wonder why and what she is doing out there, then one day she decided to bring her home. Her husband and her twelve-year-old daughter think she is crazy for bringing a complete stranger into their home. Chris decided to do some investigation on this girl to find out who she is and where she came from. He only finds a twitter account with her name, but the picture isn’t of Willow it’s another girl named willow could this just be a coincidence he thinks. Is Willow even her real name? Where are her parents? And the baby’s father? Is she a criminal out on the run or just a runaway girl with nowhere to go? This story is so intense that it had me hooked right off the first page! The Plots and Twists, I couldn’t read fast enough! There is a bit of sexual mature content in this book!

Overall I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars if you enjoy Psychological Thrillers I would recommend this book!
