20190503_184709.jpgToday I have a review of A Nearly Normal Family by M.T. Edvardsson and publishing on June 25, 2019 via Celadon Books. A big thank you to Celadon for my complimentary copy.

My Thoughts:

Oh, this was fun! I was gripped from the first couple sentences. Be ready for a slow, compelling burn! 

The question throughout A Nearly Normal Family is if your loved one were in trouble, just how far would you go to protect her? 

Stella is a teenager living with her parents, a pastor and a lawyer. They’d have to be on the up-and-up due to their work, right? 

Well, Stella is accused of murdering a man fifteen years older than her. And when this happens, her parents  are ethically challenged from every front. 

The story is multi-layered and told from three narrators. The tension mounts as the story paces along, and the big reveal is… well, it’s a big ‘ole whammy! 

Everyone is lying and searching for truth will keep you guessing. A Nearly Normal Family was a gripping page-turner, and I enjoyed every morsel! I definitely recommend this one to fans of slow burning legal thrillers and mysteries. 

I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own. 

About the Book:

M.T. Edvardsson’s A Nearly Normal Family is a gripping legal thriller that forces the reader to consider: How far would you go to protect the ones you love? In this twisted narrative of love and murder, a horrific crime makes a seemingly normal family question everything they thought they knew about their life—and one another.

Eighteen-year-old Stella Sandell stands accused of the brutal murder of a man almost fifteen years her senior. She is an ordinary teenager from an upstanding local family. What reason could she have to know a shady businessman, let alone to kill him?

Stella’s father, a pastor, and mother, a criminal defense attorney, find their moral compasses tested as they defend their daughter, while struggling to understand why she is a suspect. Told in an unusual three-part structure, A Nearly Normal Familyasks the questions: How well do you know your own children? How far would you go to protect them?
