Review of Saving Meghan by D.J. Palmer

5 STAR REVIEW

Thank you so much to St. Martins Press and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I’m not even sure where to start with this book. After reading the synopsis I immediately thought it was the mom making the kid sick and I thought to myself why would the author give that much information away which would leave no mystery or thrills to the novel. Then as I started reading the book I strongly felt it was the mom, then I thought it was someone else, and then I got to the end of the book and found out who was really hurting Meghan and I was in complete shock.

Becky’s daughter Meghan has been sick for awhile and no doctor or specialist can seem to figure out why. All of her test results come back normal and she appears to be a healthy 15-year-old, just skinny and pale which could be attributed to the fact that she never has an appetite.

After Becky’s husband Carl finds a specialist for a disease they hadn’t considered they think they will finally get the answers they’ve been searching for. Then Becky starts being investigated for Munchausen syndrome by proxy which Carl believes stems from Becky’s mother faking illnesses and having Becky lie for her growing up. Just as the Gerard family feels they’re starting to get answers their while world is taken from them by someone with a sinister plot.

This was honestly one of the best mystery/suspense novels I’ve read in a very long time. I found the beginning of the book to be a little slow for me but I think that was due to a lot of information being thrown out at once. Once I started reading further into the book I was drawn in and couldn’t finish the book fast enough.

I loved all of the characters especially Becky since she was a total mama bear determined to get her child better no matter what it took. There was a few times in the book where I feel she reverted back to how her mother used to have her act but she was honestly trying to do it in the best interest of her child which I think any mom with a sick kid would do.

Trust me when I say the ending will leave you reeling.
