Today I am reviewing Her Husband’s Murder by Jaime Lynn Hendricks, published by Canelo..
‘I do’ is about to become a death sentence…
When five friends arrive in Miami for a destination wedding, they appear excited for the forthcoming celebration as their friend, Fiona, is about to become a wife. No one would guess that each of them has a reason to want the groom dead.
Trevor wooed his bride-to-be by bonding with her close-knit friends. But Trevor’s intentions weren’t honourable. He uncovered each of the group’s darkest secrets and used them as blackmail to get their help in persuading Fiona to say ‘yes’ to his proposal.
Trevor has his own reasons for wanting to marry Fiona, and he’ll stop at nothing to make his plan a reality. But when he dies at the wedding, surrounded by enemies, the possibility of murder isn’t far behind. The pool of suspects is wide, but who was desperate enough to kill?
A twisty domestic thriller that will appeal to readers of Lisa Jewell, Sue Watson and Tammy Cohen that will stay with you long after the last page.
”Till death do us part”
This is one delightfully wicked tale that had me glued to the pages from its dramatic opening, till its woah finale! My poor Kindle could hardly keep up with my fingers furiously flicking the pages to see how it would all unfold.
Centring around a group of friends each with secrets to hide and a puppet master pulling the strings using said secrets against them for their own gain, certainly makes for a very entertaining read.
The narrative alternates between the friends as we learn of their secrets, (boy there are some doozy’s!), and I was so intrigued as to who’s was bad enough to resort to murder! Not all are particularly likeable, but it works in this story and our puppet master has been crafted as the perfect villain.
My Husband’s Murder is the first book I have read from Hendricks and it won’t be my last. A great storyteller who held me captive and kept engaged throughout, I can’t wait to read more from her.
