Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica Book Summary

"Thrilling and illuminating."—LA Times

"A hypnotic psychological thriller." —People

A chance encounter sparks an unrelenting web of lies in this new gripping and complex psychological thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl.

She sees the teenage girl on the train platform, standing in the pouring rain, clutching an infant in her arms. She boards a train and is whisked away. But she can't get the girl out of her head…

Heidi Wood has always been a charitable woman: she works for a nonprofit, takes in stray cats. Still, her husband and daughter are horrified when Heidi returns home one day with a young woman named Willow and her four-month-old baby in tow. Disheveled and apparently homeless, this girl could be a criminal—or worse. But despite her family's objections, Heidi invites Willow and the baby to take refuge in their home.

Heidi spends the next few days helping Willow get back on her feet, but as clues into Willow's past begin to surface, Heidi is forced to decide how far she's willing to go to help a stranger. What starts as an act of kindness quickly spirals into a story far more twisted than anyone could have anticipated.

Just OkNot one of my favorites by her. The plot felt like it was missing something, and it lacked the suspense I’ve come to know from Kubica..Score: 3/5

Character driven story...unforeseen lies...spiralingIn Pretty Baby, we meet a variety of characters who cross paths into each other’s lives exposing lies. With a theme centered around mental stability. Many variables come into play when each character’s actions create a set of circumstances leading them down a dangerous path of destruction. The story had elements of abuse, loss, hope, fear, courage, desperation, and awareness. The story was character driven with multiple points of view. Each character crossed over into the others lives involving the other in a new set of circumstances. This was a psychological suspense where some of the characters were exposed to danger on a mental level rather than a physical one. This was a slow building story. It took awhile to build to the psychological suspense. The entire story was building to this moment that revealed truths that devastated some of them emotionally. The deeper you get into the story more layers unfold exposing unforeseen lies. Heidi is a charitable woman who works for a nonprofit agency helping refugees get settled. Heidi’s character appeared put together by others while inside she was crumbling. Chris is an investment banker who works long hours and travels. He’s a good father and husband even after fourteen years of marriage. Willow is homeless with a baby. Willow’s character has an emotional story that unfolds layer by layer. In the beginning, it’s hard to get a read on her. Slowly she unravels the truths of her life that make you compassionate for her situation. I still have to rate this one with 3 stars because there were too many moments when I wanted to stop reading out of boredom. I trudged thru by skimming. Once I reached the end I realized how everything happens for a reason, but the damage was done and I couldn’t undo the execution of this story even with the closure I received upon the ending..Score: 3/5

Just okI found the main character, Heidi, very irritating. The book was just ok. Ends open ended, which I found very annoying..Score: 3/5

ExcellentExcellent, kept me interested the whole time, didn’t want to put it down.Score: 5/5

Waste of timeThis book was so long and drawn out. There are no crazy surprises..definitely boring. I tried really hard to like this book, but it did nothing for me. I'm hesitant to read "The Good Girl" now..Score: 1/5

Read thisSo, so good..Score: 5/5

Just ok *yawn*I love a book that is full of twists and turns, this suspense book didn't really meet that description. I did like how there were multiple first person views. I think the story could have been much shorter and still gotten to the same point. One thing I do not like at all is when books end open ended, I don't like to be left guessing unless it's a series. I wouldn't recommend this book..Score: 2/5

Pretty babyCould not put it down! Loved it!.Score: 5/5

Loved this bookExtremely well written. Loved the different points of view and development of the characters. Always kept me guessing. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, more was revealed. If you are a fan of dark and twisty novels, don't pass this one up!!.Score: 5/5
