Teaser Tuesday: What A Mother Knows by Leslie Lehr

"Michelle had always feared that something would happen as soon as they were out of her sight. Nikki would fall off the swingset onto cement, or Tyler would be struck in the head by a baseball." - p. 25, WHAT A MOTHER KNOWS, out May 7, 2013 from Leslie Lehr

From the book jacket: How Far Will a Mother Go to Find Her Daughter?

Michelle Mason can't remember that day, that drive, that horrible crash that killed the young man in her car. All she knows is she's being held responsible, and her daughter is missing.

Despite a shaky marriage, a threatening lawsuit, and troubling flashbacks pressing in on her, Michelle throws herself into searching. Her daughter in the one person who might know what really happened that day, but the deeper Michelle digs, the more she questions the innocence of those closest to her, even herself. As her search hurtles toward a shattering revelation, Michelle must face the biggest challenge of her life.


I was lucky enough to read an advance copy of WHAT A MOTHER KNOWS and found it honest and compelling. It features an examination of that universal quality most mothers have for their children - that we are always their fiercest protector and will go to great lengths to help our children.

  1. This isn't a genre I read but it does sound fascinating. Come see my teasers for Sharp by Alex Hughes and The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd. Happy reading!

  2. I'm sure all mothers feel that way; great teaser! :) I'm not sure this is my type of book, but it does look quite good. Thanks for sharing. ^.^
