From the international bestselling author of The Daughter In Law, a gripping psychological thriller about family, secrecy and grief – with a twist you won’t see coming. Perfect for fans of K L Slater, Shalini Boland and Lisa Jewell.
The Guilty Wife was a quick, domestic suspense/mystery that kept me engaged from beginning to end. Frankie, a mother of two in her mid-thirties, is trying to navigate life while also haunted by the death of her brother.
I like the alternating chapters. We flip back and forth through flashbacks and journal entries. I liked getting bits and pieces of Frankie’s life through these alternating flashbacks. It really helped give a sense of mystery and allowed me to get to know Frankie even more.
I think the mystety is well done. There are a few unanswered questions that bothered me, but for the most part, the questions posed were answered. I think the twist in the end was unexpected and that was a good surprise.
Overall, I enjo6ed The Guilty Wife and think people who enjoy supense and mystery will enoy this.
