Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing The Good Wife by Ellery Kane, published by Bookouture.


My husband has been accused of something terrible. But what I’m about to do is much worse…

I’m sick to my stomach when I hear about the young woman found dead outside my husband’s music studio the night of our wedding anniversary. She and Theo were close, so when the police knock on the door as our daughter sleeps peacefully upstairs, I think they’re just trying to rule him out. But then I see the panicked look in his eyes…

“That’s not possible. I just saw her—”. I watch my perfect husband freeze. Just moments earlier, he had told the cops he hadn’t seen her. Why is he changing his story?

Most women would leave him—take their child and run for the hills. But I won’t. Theo and I have been together a long time. I know his secrets. And he knows mine… well, most of them. I’m the best lawyer in this town and I’m his only chance. I will defend him, whatever the cost.

As the police begin to pick apart our relationship, they don’t paint a pretty picture, and even some of our so-called friends begin to tell stories. My whole life has been a lie.

Can I really trust the man I love?

And when push comes to shove, can he trust me?

Fans of Gone GirlThe Girl on the Train and The Housemaid will love this spine-tinglingly tense psychological thriller with a mind-blowing twist!

”Do you really know what goes on behind closed doors…”

This book is the absolute bomb and I loved every single minute of it!! Right from the beginning I was held captive unable to tear myself away and the times I did have to put it down, I couldn’t stop thinking about it!

I really loved the idea of a wife defending their husband who has been accused of murder and Kane has captured this perfectly. The timeframe shifts from the present to before the murder seamlessly and the characters felt real and believable. Oh and those twists and turns are so good where it all culminates in a jaw dropping outcome. Just a fantastic read all round.

Thank you to Ellery Kane, Bookouture and Netgalley for allowing me to read an advance copy of The Good Wife, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

Forensic psychologist by day, novelist by night, Ellery Kane has been writing–professionally and creatively–for as long as she can remember.

Just like many of her main characters, Ellery loves to ask why, which is the reason she became a psychologist in the first place. Real life really is stranger than fiction, and Ellery’s writing is often inspired by her day job. Evaluating violent criminals and treating trauma victims, she has gained a unique perspective on the past and its indelible influence on the individual. And she’s heard her fair share of real life thrillers.

Ellery lives in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, a picturesque setting that provides the backdrop for many of her novels. If you don’t find Ellery interviewing murderers behind prison walls or pecking away at her latest novel, she is probably at the gym landing a solid jab-cross to a punching bag; riding bicycles with her special someone; or enjoying a movie the old-fashioned way–at the theater with popcorn and Milk Duds.

Ellery was previously selected as one of ten semifinalists in the MasterClass James Patterson Co-Author Competition, and she recently signed a three book deal with Bookouture for her new Rockwell and Decker mystery thriller series.
