I just met my new son-in-law . . . And he’s my ex-husband.

They’re here. I watch them arrive from the kitchen window. My pregnant daughter and her new husband. They’ve barely known each other six months.

I greet him with a tight smile that he recognizes as fake.

Luke is no good for my beautiful, fragile Cerys. He’ll break her heart. I know that because he broke mine — when he was married to me.

I don’t know what he wants. But I’m going to make it my business to find out.

I’ll do anything to keep my daughter safe. Don’t underestimate me.

My Thoughts

I just finished The Son-in-Law by Jane E. James, and while it was okay, it didn’t quite meet my expectations for a psychological thriller. The plot was somewhat predictable, and the characters were a bit one-dimensional. The writing was average, and I found myself losing interest at times. Overall, it was an okay read, but not one that I would highly recommend.

Thank you to Zoé from ZooLoo’s Book Tours and Joffe Books for allowing me to read and review this book.

About Jane E. James

Best selling author, Jane E James creates chilling reads that appeal to fans of psychological thrillers, mysteries and dark fiction. Jane loves to weave tense and haunting tales that stay in the reader’s mind. All her books are standalone novels.

Her 2nd novel, The Crying Boy (a compelling suspense thriller inspired by actual events) became an overnight best seller on Amazon, knocking both Stephen King and Dean Koontz off the top suspense spot. Jane started out as a scriptwriter but soon switched back to her love of writing novels and couldn’t be happier. A life in the city just wasn’t for her.

When she isn’t writing (or reading) Jane enjoys living ‘the good life’ in the Rutland countryside, in a small village close to the town of Stamford, Lincolnshire in the UK; known for its quirky tea shops and cobbled streets.

An animal lover, who believes ‘all life is precious’ Jane is a vegetarian trying very hard to become a vegan. Her motto in life is to ‘say yes to everything.’ Up until recently, Jane always owned dogs but having lost all her ‘fur-babies’ over the last ten years, is not quite ready to give her heart to another.

Although born in Cambridgeshire, she is half Welsh and hopes, one day, to retire to the mountains of South Wales, where she feels closest to her late mother, whose maiden name ‘James’ is where Jane gets her pen name from. Once there, she plans to adopt and rescue all kinds of animals including donkeys, sheep, chickens and goats.

My Thoughts

This book truly encapsulates the essence of Old Hollywood, delving into the glamorous yet dark world of true crime and mobsters.
