Center of Gravity - Laura McNeill Blog Tour

CLP Blog Tours

Women's Fiction/Mystery
Her whole life, Ava Carson has been sure of one thing: she doesn’t measure up to her mother’s expectations. So when Mitchell Carson sweeps into her life with his adorable son, the ready-made family seems like a dream come true. In the blink of an eye, she’s married, has a new baby, and life is wonderful. Or is it? When her picture-perfect marriage begins unraveling at the seams, Ava convinces herself she can fix it. It’s temporary. It’s the stress. It’s Mitchell’s tragic history of loss. If only Ava could believe her own excuses. Mitchell is no longer the charming, thoughtful man she married. He grows more controlling by the day, revealing a violent jealous streak. His behavior is recklessly erratic, and the unanswered questions about his past now hint at something far more sinister than Ava can stomach. Before she can fit the pieces together, Mitchell files for divorce and demands full custody of their boys. Fueled by fierce love for her children and aided by Graham Thomas, a new attorney in town, Ava takes matters into her own hands, digging deep into the past. But will finding the truth be enough to beat Mitchell at his own game? Center of Gravity weaves a chilling tale, revealing the unfailing and dangerous truth that things—and people—are not always what they seem.

Wow, just wow... Center of Gravity is a super suspenseful and emotional story that's absolutely brilliant.  From page one I was drawn into Ava's world and set on the edge of my seat.  Her love for her boys really spoke to me as a mother.  She'll do anything and everything for them no matter the cost.  Mitchell is a jerk and a master manipulator that made me want to wring his neck.  Graham was supportive and wonderful coaching Ava through the divorce that was not being played fair by Mitchell.  I really am rooting for Graham.  Center of Gravity kept me turning the pages frantically until the end to see who Ava ended up with and if Mitchell got his comeuppance.
I give Center of Gravity...
