The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy

A group of pregnant women due in May joined the “May Mothers” mommy group in Brooklyn. Because one of the mothers, Winnie, was feeling depressed, the group arranged an outing to a bar on the Fourth of July. That night, Winnie’s son, Midas, was abducted. Three of the May Mothers, Colette, Francie, and Nell, become caught up in the Baby Midas case.

This book was such a light “beach read” type book, I sometimes felt I was losing brain cells while reading it. And a particular narrative device made me feel manipulated in a gimmicky way. At the same time, it was a quick read that captured my attention.
