Andrea is a suburban mom of five. She has a group of female friends including perfectionist Molly, talkative Crystal, and triplet wrangler Brianne. In The Self-Made Widow, Andrea has a problem. She thinks widowed Molly killed her husband but has no proof or motive. Enter Andrea’s new female friend, the brilliant Sathwika, and old investigative helper, former reporter Kenny. They and a ragtag bunch of others work to uncover the real Molly under her slick facade.
I enjoyed everything about this book. From the characters to the plot to the writing style, there is nothing I would change about The Self-Made Widow. And that mobius twist in the middle was amazing! But I can’t describe it because I don’t want to spoil the surprise. I also loved the diversity of the characters and the snarky comments by Andrea.
I read this book without reading the first book in the series. It is fine as a stand-alone but now I need to read the first one, Suburban Dicks, too.
Overall, The Self-Made Widow rates 5 stars and is a favorite!
Thanks to G.P. Putnam’s Sons and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
