So in general this is a story with a lot of dark themes, diving into everything from murder, suicide, drug abuse, addiction, sexual abuse and abduction. The story follows Bree Cabbat, a poor girl with a talent for theater, who marries into money and almost 2 decades later she finds herself still happily married to her husband Trey and mother to 3 kids, including 10 week old single son Robert. When a mysterious woman snatches Robert right out from under Bree’s nose, Bree enters every mother’s worst nightmare. Facing a deadly quid pro quo, Bree is forced into making awful choices in the hopes that her son will be returned to her. With the help of her trusted friend she wants to dig out the information about who has targeted her family and why? In a case of revenge being best served cold, secrets buried deeply are slowly brought to the surface bringing unknown consequences for the future of Bree’s tight little family. This story is definitely exciting and starts off with a bang following the abduction of baby Robert. It continues at a frantic pace and doesn’t really let up, which is good because it holds attention. It is a dark tale, full of triggers for a whole range of issues. If you enjoyed novels like the Drowning Kind, this may also appeal to you. Thank you to Netgalley for the copy in exchange for an honest review. ( )

I won this book in a giveaway from LibraryThing and I’m so glad I did. I’ve never read anything from this author before and this book was great. Not what I was expecting but very pleasantly surprised with this one. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to read Mother May I. I don’t think I would have picked it up had I not won it and I would have missed out on a great book.

Mother May I by Joshilyn Jackson

This books is due out April 2021

First I must say , I love a book set in GA. This one is set in Decatur where “its greater”. I’m 38 miles south of Decatur , GA.

Bree Cabot has the perfect life , husband and kids. Her husband Trey , is a rich successful lawyer. They have 2 teenage daughters and a baby boy under 1.

Bree sees a witch , a premonition , but in reality an old woman. She knows in her gut she is there to send a message. And oh does she.

Robert the baby has been kidnapped , she’s asked to do something at a gala and if she follows the instructions she will get Robert back. She doesn’t tell a soul.
However , things do not go as planned.
And with the help of Marshall (an x cop ( )

How far would you go to save your kidnapped child? Joshilyn Jackson pits the fierce mothering instinct against moral and ethical beliefs in Mother May I. Bree Cabbat has left her humble roots behind when she marries a wealthy man from a “good” family. Her only link to that past is through her mother, who she dismisses as an irrational neurotic. Now with a family of her own, Bree has fully transformed herself into a model of over-achieving parenthood. She is deeply involved in her children’s lives and shines in her devotion to them and her husband. Just when the bliss is becoming unbearably cloying, a stranger enters their lives and all of Bree’s assumptions about herself are thrown into question. In exchange for her son, she is commanded to perform a seemingly simple task. Of course, things go horribly wrong, and she needs to enlist an old friend to help her get her boy back without her family-or the police-knowing. Along the way, Jackson throws in some unrequited attraction and hidden past events that seem to be linked to Bree’s current woes. Bree is truly naïve and discovers some truths about her husband that she needs to reconcile in her mind. The novel poses some interesting questions about loyalty, adopted identity, and forgiveness. Mother May I gets mired too often in over-emotionality and pathos given the repetitive description of Bree’s anguish. It does provide some interesting insight into showing self-compassion and empathy for others in the face of a crisis.

Thanks to the author, William Morrow and Edelweiss for an ARC in exchange for an unbiased review. ( )

Probably this is not the kind of book that's going to impress the literati, but who cares? It was a propulsive read. The pages pretty much turned themselves as I needed to know what was going to happen. A little Lifetime movie-esque, ridiculously overdramatic in parts, and culty in the best way. It had me from the first sentence.

Not even remotely scary or explicit although there are some themes (kidnapping of a child, sexual assault, drug addiction) that some readers might want to steer clear of. ( )
