Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica

Pretty Baby
by Mary Kubica

Life on the street is wearing thin young Willow and baby Ruby as they trek around Chicago in search of food and baby essentials. Day after day, businesswoman and mother Heidi sees the pair at the train station and begins watching them, worrying through the day in her comfortable surroundings with her young teenage daughter, Zoe – and husband Chris.

Slowly, Heidi builds a relationship with Willow and in an especially heavy downpour, brings them into her home.

The story of what happens next is told from Willow, Heidi, and Chris’s point of view as we gain not only insight into the characters, but learn their backstories and grow attached to everyone involved in the situation. The story bring forth the question – What is the ‘right’ thing to do?

Think again if you think you have this psychological thriller figured out because soon you will not want to put this book down and instead navigate the twists and turns of masterful suspense late into the night.
