Abby and Kate are The Wife and the Widow, respectively, in an exhilarating new thriller by the author of The Nowhere Child.
What has happened to Kate’s husband, John? When he didn’t return from a business trip, Kate investigates. It appears John never went on the trip despite Skyping Kate from his hotel room. Worse, John quit his physician job three months earlier but continued to “go to work” each day. Where did he really go? Why is the alarm company reporting a break-in at their vacation house on Belport Island. Could John be there? If so, why?
Abby is married to working class Ray. They live on Belport Island year round. They struggle to make ends meet during the non-tourist season. Other than the Island, how are Kate’s and Abby’s stories related?
I absolutely adored The Wife and the Widow. It is the most twisty and surprising tale I have read since Mr. White’s last book, The Nowhere Child. If you want a fun, exhilarating ride through two families’ lives, pick up this book. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. It’s fantastic! 5 stars and one of my favorites this year!
Thanks to Minotaur Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
