phenomenal book

I love this book and the entire Jasmine series I just wish that she would have numbered the books in order because I've been looking for this book because I read all the books out of order and I feel like I need to go back and start from the first book.. but now I don't remember which book was first

Very Good Book!

I Love this whole series so far. I can't wait to see what Jasmine ends up doing next. This particular book was very good because it showed Jasmine in a more genuine light. In this story line she is forced to really feel something for once. Even though there were times in the other books where her real feelings were revealed, her daughter being kidnapped is too close to her heart so this situation made her more human to me.

Enjoyable Read

Although the secondary story threw me for a bit of a loop, and Jasmine was a bit of a mess in more ways than one, and some parts were very hard to listen to because of the sensitive nature- I really did enjoy this book. It was a great reminder that although God does permit certain things, they are not from him. And while I would have liked for Brian to be more present end, the ending was still great just as it was.

Jasmine still unlikeable poor hosea

listened to this on audible. the narrator did a good job.

Storyline
pace falters in places, unnecessarily wordy and repetitive and it's easy to get distracted. it was unnecessarily drawn out with repetitive inner monologues. overall a decent listen

random thoughts-

even through this horrible situation jasmine was still an unlikeable character and hosea still garnered your sympathies as did others who were a part of the bush family. I was left wondering again if Jasmine loves Hosea or just loves being a first lady.

the alexis/brian arc was uninteresting-alexis' character is still unlikeable. maybe if her character took accountability for the outcome of her situation then maybe, but I doubt it. the character was created as a judgemental, close minded person, ridiculous and remained that way with no growth thus far. What was the draw to her for Brian? Did he just enjoy chasing a woman? There relationship didn't make sense in this book for me.
alexis, jasmine and kyla remind me of a description i saw on social media called the petty olympics.

"JASMINE??"

The drama queen rides again! Its always a Jasmine point of view and she's always rt. The players all played a great part in a great story, but Jasmine was too much sometimes.

Too Much Fluff, and Too Long.

This story would have been much better without the other couple's backstory. The main story could have been a stand alone one, but should've came with sexual violence trigger warning. There was too much internal dialogue from Jasmine, and absolutely none from an important character- Mae Francis. All in all the book wasn't horrible, but I think Victoria Christopher Murray produces a better Jasmine Series when she is joined with her co-writer

Seriously?

What would have made Sins of the Mother better?

A better plot. This plot was awful. Absolutely boring and it dragged on and on for ten hours. :(

What was most disappointing about Victoria Christopher Murray’s story?

That her books are usually great! However, this one was awful.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sins of the Mother?

All the extra thoughts and fluff before actually getting to the point. Literally nothing happens for hours. :(
