Mother May I by Joshilyn Jackson


She's happily married with two teenage daughters and a new baby boy.  Everything in her life is perfect until someone steals her baby...

William Morrow sent me an ARC of this book to read for review (thank you).  It will be published on April 6th.

She has no idea why anyone would want her baby and she's devastated he's gone.  She gets a note that tells her not to tell anyone about this or he will die.  When the kidnapper contacts her she's willing to do almost anything to keep him safe.  The woman who kidnapped him is old.  The first thing she asks is that she gives these pills to her husband's partner in business.  She tells Bree they are roofies.  

Bree goes to the event, gets the pills to him, and is on her way out when she sees him vomit and fall and die right in front of her eyes.  The pills weren't roofies.

The next thing she wants is Bree's husband in trade for the son.  Bree is torn.  she loves her son and her husband both.  But her husband has a secret he's kept from her.  He tells her the story and she's taken back because he doesn't feel guilty about anything he did.  The woman sends her pictures and she braces him with then.  It was worse than he told her.

Will she get her boy back?  Will she lose her husband?  Read it and see.
