Her Pretty Face by Robyn Harding

Frances Metcalfe is struggling to stay afloat.

A stay-at-home mom whose troubled son is her full-time job, she thought that the day he got accepted into the elite Forrester Academy would be the day she started living her life. Overweight, insecure, and lonely, she is desperate to fit into Forrester’s world. But after a disturbing incident at the school leads the other children and their families to ostracize the Metcalfes, she feels more alone than ever before.

Until she meets Kate Randolph.

Kate is everything Frances is not: beautiful, wealthy, powerful, and confident. And for some reason, she’s not interested in being friends with any of the other Forrester moms—only Frances. As the two bond over their disdain of the Forrester snobs and the fierce love they have for their sons, a startling secret threatens to tear them apart…because one of these women is not who she seems. Her real name is Amber Kunick. And she’s a murderer.

My Thoughts
Would you do anything for a friend?  Lie?  Cheat? Murder?
Frances is struggling day by day trying to keep her secrets to herself and live that life that she has created.
People don't know about her past and she is trying to keep up this fa├žade. 
She is a stay at home mom of a son with ADHA that is uncontrollable.  He is rude, disrespectful and down right mean but Frances says he can't help it.  I think she needs to lay down what's right and wrong with him before it's too late.
She has him in private school - hoping that helps contain him.
She has one friend at school,Kate, another child's mom.  She can't believe that Kate chose to be her friend?
Kate herself seems to have an interesting side to her as well.  Her daughter is out of control because she pays no attention to her.  Daisy hates her little brother because he is the only one Kate pays any attention to. 
I don't want to give away to many details, the twists and turns must be experienced for yourself.  One of these ladies has a deep dark seedy past.  Will you be able to guess who that is?
This book is full of lies, cheating thoughts, lust, and intrigue, just to name a few.
This read will keep you up at night, unable to put it down. 

Drink Selection
