For Better and Worse by Margot Hunt ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

"Till Death do Us Part"

'I doubt it would be easy to take a life.  But I think if you had to - I mean if we had to - We could absolutely get away with it.'

This is an addictive page-turner that will have you clearing your calendar and staying home to read. It presents a clear dilemma - how far would a parent go to punish someone who has hurt their child? Would a parent plan to murder the person that abused their child? Would they????? Would you???

For Better and Worse
December 2018; MIRA; 978-0778307907
audio, ebook, print (336 pages)
psychological thriller
When Will and Natalie go on their first date in law school, they joke that they could probably commit the perfect murder - they were both highly intelligent lawyers and understood the law. Now after 15 years of marriage, that possibility comes up again - could they commit the perfect murder? Natalie is a defense attorney and Will is a real estate lawyer. They have one son, 11-year-old Jacob who is the biggest joy in their lives. When they find out that the principal of Jacob's school has been accused of molesting a boy at school, they are angry but when Jacob confesses that the principal did the same thing to him, Natalie decides the predator must die. As she starts making plans, she has to use her knowledge of the law and police procedures to plan the crime. Can she do it? If she does, can she plan the perfect murder and keep her family safe?

Despite several holes in the plot, this is an addictive suspense novel. It's a quick read because you just have to know how it ends. And the question you'll ask yourself at the end is - What would I do if someone harmed my child?
