I received a copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley.

This was very enjoyable; a mixture of a mystery, courtroom drama, and romance. It centres on the committee of an elementary school PTA where one committee member is charged with the poisoning of another by means of a smoothie served at the Grade 5 'graduation'. There are chapters from the perspective of Kira, the accused mother, and Allison her lawyer. Kira was initially very amusing, although she became less so as the plot developed, and I really liked Allison, so I am glad this looks as if it is only the first in a series. ( )

This was my Amazon First Reads pick for May 2021. In the end, I found it a bit disturbing. I can understand a parent being willing to die for their child, maybe even to kill for their child if it was a true life or death matter, but to kill over an 11 year old's grades? No. To even consider killing over grades or a future college. No! ( )

Mommy Law
Review of the Thomas & Mercer Kindle ARC eBook edition (to be released June 1, 2021)
The courtroom tainted everything and everyone who entered. We’d all go straight to hell together. There’d be a line for entry longer than the ones at Disney for Space Mountain. Despair at the awfulness of everyone overwhelmed me.
I had originally expected The Darkest Flower to be something along a cozier line than it turned out to be. Dueling mommies at a junior school PTA don't usually conjure up visions of noir and back-stabbing. Still, there is an overabundance about children and parents and their nefarious goings on in junior school that you might want to step back if those themes don't attract you. Cynicism about the law also might be turnoff as in the quoted example from the text above. The defendant is especially repellant as you are allowed to dip into her thoughts in the back and forth chapters that toggle between her and the lawyer.

Still, the ending revelation was quite diabolical and the lawyer's method of obtaining justice was well handled (I'm being intentionally vague here to avoid spoilers) so this was an impressive start for first time novelist Kristin Wright. Her lawyer, Allison Barton, will return in The Darkest Web (expected April 2022).

The Darkest Flower. was one of the 9 possible selections in the 5th month of the Amazon First Reads program which offered 1 free Advance Reading Copy (ARC) selection to Prime members in Canada (2 copies in the USA). ( )
