Quick review for a somewhat quick read. “Just What Kind of Mother Are You” pretty much falls under my library’s recommended literature similar to Gillian Flynn ‘ s “Gone Girl” but I’d picked it up for the overarching mystery and inspiration behind it. It kept me reading avidly to see where the disappearance would go, though I honestly predicted what would happen early on and who the villain (s) turned out to be. I found most of the characters to be insufferable to follow (save for the detective, who was more than apt to call out people – I liked reading her POV the most though it wasn’t featured as often.)

I’ll admit it was a read that kept me guessing in places, though. Audiobook was very well narrated and that factored into me enjoying the overall read, but I felt a bit underwhelmed by the dashed off ending and that it really didn’t dig as much into the overarching issues behind Kate ‘ s experience and the disappearance of her child.

Overall: 3/5 stars.
