About the book:

On their first date back in law school, Natalie and Will Clarke bonded over drinks, dinner and whether they could get away with murder. Now married, they’ll put the latter to the test when an unchecked danger in their community places their son in jeopardy. Working as a criminal defense attorney, Nat refuses to rely on the broken legal system to keep her family safe. She knows that if you want justice…you have to get it yourself.

Shocked to discover Nat’s taken matters into her own hands, Will has no choice but to dirty his, also. His family is in way too deep to back down now. He’s just not sure he recognizes the woman he married. Nat’s always been fiercely protective, but never this ruthless or calculating. With the police poking holes in their airtight plan, what will be the first to fall apart: their scandalous secret—or their marriage?


For Better and Worse by Margot Hunt is a thriller that asks the questions just how far will you go for your family? What would you do to protect your child? And a warning is in order with this one as it may not be for everyone with child molestation involved.

Natalie and Will Clarke are both lawyers now and have been together since their days in law school. Back on their first date the couple had had a strange but fascinating conversation about being able to commit the perfect murder. Neither had thought at the time the day would come when that conversation would come up again.

Natalie has been working as a criminal defense attorney all these years so she has come across the worst of the worst in her profession. Never did Natalie think that one day she would find out that her son had been in danger from a predator or that she would need to do something to stop that predator from ever harming another child.

For Better and Worse is the second book I’ve read by Margot Hunt and much like the first I found this one simply captivating once sitting down with it and beginning to read. Taking a mother’s love of her child to the absolute limit the story is one that is an emotional one and keeps the pages turning to see how it would all work out in the end. Definitely would recommend checking this one out for the thriller fans.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

  1. Nice review Carrie. Thanks for the warning about the triggers. It does sound like one I would like, especially with those questions about how far you would go. Need to check this one out. Probably after Christmas though.
