About the Author
Amber Garza has had a passion for the written word since she was a child making books out of notebook paper and staples. Her hobbies include reading and singing. Coffee and wine are her drinks of choice (not necessarily in that order). She writes while blaring music, and talks about her characters like they're real people. She lives with her husband and two kids in Folsom, California, which is also home to another Amber Garza.
"[P]ropulsive....Combining high drama with issues--aging, sibling rivalry, the shadow of past mistakes--to which most readers can relate, Garza keeps the fast-paced plot twists going into the book's final pages. Fans of smart, female-centered thrillers will love this." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"I don't have kids and it's a good thing because if I had read this thriller while growing real human beings in my home, I might actually combust from anxiety... terrifying." --CrimeReads, THE MOST ANTICIPATED CRIME BOOKS OF FALL 2022

"In true Amber Garza fashion, A MOTHER WOULD KNOW is a completely unputdownable nail-biter that had me on the edge of my seat from page one. In this first-rate domestic suspense, Garza probes how well we know the people closest to us -- not just our friends and family, but ourselves -- and turns a familiar suburban setting into a deliciously chilling landscape. Garza has once again proven she's a master of twisted relationships. This is a must-read book."
--Ashley Winstead, author of In My Dreams I Hold A Knife

"Do we ever really know our children? Amber Garza invites readers to untangle the web of a family just like yours--or are they? A MOTHER WOULD KNOW packs plenty of surprises. No other author can so successfully mine the horrors of suburban motherhood. This thriller will have you triple-guessing yourself."
--Eliza Jane Brazier, author of If I Disappear
