Thank you so much, I'm thrilled you enjoyed The Mother-In-Law. Whenever I'm asked the question which of my own books to read, I always suggest The Mother In Law and The Things We Keep (my personal favourites of my own books). That said, if you are a fan of the thriller, perhaps you might enjoy The Family Next Door? The Secrets of Midwives also has a mystery at its heart. Let me know what you decide :)(less)
