Beth and Cath are leaving their husbands.

This is a story about two very different women.

One is wealthy and having an affair with a man who gives her the kind of love that her cold, detached husband does not.

One is living hand to mouth, suffering at the hands of a violent partner who would rather see her dead than leave him.

You may think you know these women already and how their lives will unfold.

Beth will live happily ever after with her little girl and her soulmate.

Cath will go back to her abusive husband.

And these two women will never cross paths.

But you will be wrong.

On the 3.15pm train from London to Bristol, Beth and Cath are about to meet and discover they share one shocking thing in common.

A clever, engrossing and absolutely unputdownable page-turner of a read about what really lies beneath the surface of a marriage. Fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train will be hooked on The Stranger’s Wife.

My Review:

This is such a gripping and clever book.

It’s told from several points of view, Dan the detective, Beth, and Cath. These were all such well drawn and depicted characters. The plot is so clever, and I really couldn’t figure out how all these lives were going to intersect.

It’s a book that kept me reading late into the night, I really needed to know what would happen next, and to figure out the puzzle.

I liked the character of Dan, and didn’t realise until after I’d read it that there were more books in the series featuring him. It’s perfect to read as a standalone, but now I really want to go back and read the others.

So engrossing and gripping, an absolute must-read. I loved it.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
