      April The same birthday as my mother. * * * In February , six months after the DNA match, things weren’t going well with our case. They had my mother’s DNA from the cigarette butts of her Salems and from her blood and from a stain on the rear seat of her car.   (Part 1) "All My Broken Pieces" By Cindy Watts | Forward By Kathleen Hewston, Co-Author -Read Aloud - Duration: Kimber views. Chris Watts Daily Mail book.

      APPLE BOOKS REVIEW. Karin Slaughter’s standalone thriller shares the small-town charm of her acclaimed Grant County series. But the quickfire pace of Pieces of Her makes it feel like a Southern, female take on Jason Bourne. Andy is out to lunch with her genteel mother, Laura, when they witness a shooting/5(). Book, Print in English Pieces of my mother: a memoir Melissa Cistaro. Decades later Melissa finds herself at her dying mother's bedside with 6 days to find answers, fearful that she could do the same to her own little girl. Pieces of My Mother is about the choices we make and their repercussions on others"--Provided by publisher.

      PIECES OF HER by Her father, Gordon Oliver, is a trusts and estates attorney; her mother, Dr. Laura Oliver, is a speech therapist. Andy herself has never aspired to any career goal higher than serving as an assistant to someone important. Even when she left Belle Isle, Georgia, for the Big Apple, she got nowhere, and she was only too eager. She is one of my favorite writers and I have read all her books. The book is filled with intrigue, surprise and an excellent cast of characters. It hooks you from the start and does not let go. The unraveling of Laura, Andrea's mother, and her secrets bring forth pieces of her that would scare any daughter/5(18).
