You’ll never believe the terrible things being said about the perfect president of the PTA.

Attempted murder? Inexplicable accident? Either way, a PTA mom struggled for her life in an elementary school cafeteria, poisoned by a wolfsbane-laced smoothie at the fifth-grade graduation party. Now all eyes are on the accused, the victim, and a woman hired to look deeper.

Margarita Montimore
Impressive and intoxicating. The women inhabiting this story are bold, clever, complex, and deliciously thorny—quick to show you what they're capable of if you dare underestimate them. This book is a dark delight and Kristin B. Wright is an author I'll be closely watching. ...more

The Darkest Flower is such a twisty delicious thriller featuring Kira, a horrifying but fascinating anti-hero who will make you laugh at the same time she makes you shudder, like only the most layered villains can. Woven through the toxic mix of monstrously hilarious commentary are subtle questions about society, victimhood, and what lines a mother might understandably cross for her children. The everywoman voice of Kira's lawyer, Allison, serves as a moral center to the novel. Juggling her own ...more

An outstanding book! The author is a master at creating fully realized characters who leap off the page as real people. Kira is the most interesting of those characters, an extraordinarily manipulative, status-obsessed PTA mom whose love for her child leads to questionable decisions. Think Cersei from Games of Thrones if she were married to a dentist and sought elite college admission for her children rather than control of the Iron Throne.

The plot twists and turns to unexpected places. Without

This is Big Little Lies if Cersei Lannister was heading the cast of malicious, impeccably groomed housewives. An addictive page turner with a twist you won't see coming!

This book is told from two perspectives: the defendant, Kira, who is a rich, terrifically amoral housewife (though innocent of the crime, as the reader knows from the start) and her much nicer lawyer, who's also a single mom with a crush on the handsome and disarming opposing council. I'm not usually into antiheroes or antiheroin

Kristin Wright absolutely blossoms with her second book! The Darkest Flower has it all -- the darkest humor, the most delicious villain (or is she the villain!?), a heroine to root for as she roots out evil in the suburbs, and just the right hint of romance. I loved it and can't wait for Wright's next book, which is sure to thrill!

*I read an early copy of this book.
