Book Review - Pieces of Her (Andrea Oliver, #1) by Karin Slaughter


Andrea thought she knew everything about her mother, Laura. They have spent their entire life in a small beach side town and Laura prefers a quiet life. All that changes when they get caught in between a mall shooting. Andrea sees a different side to her mother. As Andrea digs deeper into her mother's past, she realizes that her mother had a different identity and Laura is hiding from someone. With the mall shooting becoming national news, Laura has no choice but to try and escape her past again. Will Laura be able to keep her secret without endangering Andrea's life?

The novel was an interesting read. However, I thought the main character was so annoying. She acts like a child but, she was in her 30s. I felt like she had no common sense and continuously made the same mistakes over and over. I enjoyed reading about Laura's past and how it all tied together. But, I was a bit confused on how Laura went from someone who was like Andrea to someone who was willing to risk it all for someone she loves while her daughter still remains spineless. They did mention that Laura had training and did drills but, in the flashbacks they didn't make her out to be a badass that she currently is. The book didn't really have much twists and I felt that it was longer than it needed to be.
