Pretty Baby

51G76VvespLPretty Baby by Mary Kubica is similar to her book, The Good Girl, which I reviewed here. In Pretty Baby, a still grieving mother takes in a homeless girl and her baby with devastating consequences. We learn as the story progresses about the history of both characters, which explains their motivations and decisions. Pretty Baby moved along much more quickly than The Good Girl and, while it was predictable, I enjoyed watching the story come together. Unfortunately, this was the first book I read after finishing The Nightingale (my review here), and any book that followed that would lose out by comparison.
