Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing The New Wife by Sue Watson. This was released on the 19th of November, published by Bookouture.
You can never truly know what goes on behind closed doors…
My darling son, Sam, is marrying his childhood sweetheart and I couldn’t be prouder of the man he’s grown into. Walking out on his abusive father all those years ago was the best thing I ever did. And today he stands, tall and handsome, saying ‘I do’ to my dream daughter-in-law. If I hadn’t pushed them together all those years ago, he might never have found a girl as perfect as Lauren. It’s true what they say, mother always knows best.
But weeks later, Lauren is dead and police cars fill the driveway of their idyllic countryside home. As they question Sam, I sense he’s hiding something. Why won’t he look me in the eye? And who does he rush off to meet as soon as the police are gone?
Desperate, I do what every good mother would do: I let myself into Sam and Lauren’s bedroom. What I see, I will never be able to forget. My son’s beautiful new wife was hiding a dangerous secret. Can I clear my son’s name? And could my life be in danger now too?
A completely gripping, utterly twisted thriller that will leave your jaw on the floor. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, The Wife Between Us and The Woman in the Window.
“You trust her…You shouldn’t…
Get in your comfy clothes, grab a glass of wine (ok a bottle!), get yourself comfortable in your favourite reading spot and let yourself become completely immersed in this fabulous read from Sue Watson!
I can always count on Watson giving me a gripping and riveting read and once again she has delivered with The New Wife. As the reader, you become part of the narrative as you try to uncover the truth, never sure of who you can trust. Then just when I thought I had it all figured out, which had me buzzing, (or was that the wine…) the rug was quickly pulled out from underneath me divulging a twist I didn’t see coming!
Well played Sue Watson, very well played…
