Mother - Tamara Thorne, Alistair Cross


A Girl's Worst Nightmare is Her Mother...

Priscilla Martin. She's the diva of Morning Glory Circle and a driving force in the quaint California town of Snapdragon. Overseer of garage sales and neighborhood Christmas decorations, she is widely admired. But few people know the real woman behind the perfectly coiffed hair and Opium perfume.

Family is Forever. And Ever and Ever...

Nothing escapes Prissy's watchful eye, nothing that is, except her son, who committed suicide many years ago, and her daughter, Claire, who left home more than a decade past and hasn't spoken to her since. But now, Priscilla's daughter and son-in-law have fallen on hard times. Expecting their first child, the couple is forced to move back... And Prissy is there to welcome them home with open arms... and to reclaim her broken family.

Home is Where the Terror Is...

Jason Holbrook loves his wife. He's heard Claire's stories about Priscilla, but now it seems Mother has mended her ways, and as he uncovers a cache of vile family secrets, he begins to wonder who the real monster is. Lives are in danger - and Jason must face a horrifying truth... a truth that may destroy him... and will forever change his definition of "Mother."
