TM Logan: The Mother

Today I am taking part in the blog tour for The Mother. My review is written with thanks to Tracy Fenton at Compulsive Readers for inviting me on the tour and to the publisher for my copy of the book.


One Mother. One Murder. How far will she go to get her family back?

A woman attends a funeral, standing in the shadows and watching in agony as her sons grieve. But she is unable to comfort them – or reveal her secret.

A decade earlier, Heather gets her children ready for bed and awaits the return of her husband Liam, little realising that this is the last night they will spend together as a family. Because tomorrow she will be accused of Liam’s murder.

Ten years ago Heather lost everything. Now she will stop at nothing to clear her name – and to get her children back.

Discover the unmissable new thriller from the Master of the Up-All-Night Thriller, T.M. Logan.


I’ve read most of T M Logan’s books now and I have to say, I think The Mother is my favourite. It starts with a woman, Heather Vernon, attending her own funeral and I was really intrigued by how this came to be. The prologue was always in the back of my mind as I was reading and I wanted to find out the answers to my questions. 

Heather is the first person narrator of The Mother and this does raise some questions about whether the things the reader is being told are true. Heather is trying to clear her name after being convicted of, and serving a prison sentence for, her husband’s murder and the people who she enlists to help her are not people you would immediately trust. It was very difficult to know who I should believe and I loved this element of the novel as it helped to increase the tension. 

There were occasions as I was reading that I had to suspend my disbelief but having made these allowances, I really enjoyed the novel. The plot is really cleverly constructed and the story is full of tension, twists and turns, especially towards the end when I was totally on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next! 

The Mother is available from Amazon.
