She thought they wanted her baby. But they won’t stop there.

Roz is young, penniless and pregnant. All she wants is to be the perfect mother to her child, but the more she thinks about her own chaotic upbringing, the more certain she is that the best life for her baby is as far away as possible from her hometown in Ireland.

Determined to do the right thing, Roz joins an elite adoption service and can’t believe her luck. Within days she is jetting to New York to meet a celebrity power couple desperate for a child of their own. Sheridan and Daniel are wealthy and glamorous—everything Roz isn’t. Her baby will never go hungry, and will have every opportunity for the perfect life. But soon after Roz moves into their plush basement suite, she starts to suspect that something darker lurks beneath the glossy surface of their home.

When Roz discovers she isn’t the first person to move in with the couple, and that the previous woman has never been seen since, alarm bells start ringing. As the clock ticks down to her due date, Roz realises her unborn baby may be the only thing keeping her alive, and that despite her best intentions, she has walked them both into the perfect nightmare…

~My Review~

This book definitely had me on the edge of my seat! 

It was full of secrets and suspense. I couldn’t put it down! I needed to know what would happen next. The characters were well developed. I love that there was more to them than at first glance. I found that I liked Sheridan. I probably wasn’t supposed to but….*facepalm* The author takes you into a world of the rich and famous. Money does make things happen. The story is well written and will have you captivated until the end. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I’ve quickly become a fan. I can’t say enough good things about it! I will be checking out her other books. This is a fantastic read and if you love thrillers, I highly recommend you reading this book! You won’t be disappointed! I give this 5 stars.

The Wife and the Widow by Christian White – My Review


Release Date: January 21st 2020

Genre: Domestic Thrillers

~Synopsis~

The second standalone thriller from the award-winning author of The Nowhere Child, Christian White.

Set against the backdrop of an eerie island town in the dead of winter, The Wife and The Widow is an unsettling thriller told from two perspectives: Kate, a widow whose grief is compounded by what she learns about her dead husband’s secret life; and Abby, an island local whose world is turned upside when she’s forced to confront the evidence of her husband’s guilt. But nothing on this island is quite as it seems, and only when these women come together can they discover the whole story about the men in their lives.

Brilliant and beguiling, The Wife and The Widow takes you to a cliff edge and asks the question: how well do we really know the people we love?

~My Review~

How much do you really know someone? Everyone has secrets and some never stay buried.

The Wife and the Widow is a thrilling suspense kind of read. The beginning was a slow start. I had some trouble staying engaged. The characters didn’t help. I didn’t find any of them interesting or likable but yet I trudged on and I’m glad that I did. The twist was a good one and as a whole, this was a good read. I give this 3 stars.

A therapist must face her own worst fear—one of her patients is a serial killer.

Danielle Rycroft suspects someone close to her has a dark secret. In the confidential setting of therapy, her patients share their anxieties and fears. Now, with a string of murders in town putting her on edge, Danielle’s own worries come close to eclipsing her patients’. In each case, the pattern is the same: parents killed while their children sleep blissfully unaware in their beds. Her best friend, Detective Tami Sloan, is the only person she has confided in.

Danielle believes that there’s still a secret one patient has yet to share. But which one? Behind a familiar face is a stranger who’ll do anything to hide their worst compulsions. The anxiety brings Danielle to her own therapist’s office, seeking counsel and comfort. But what is she willing to risk, and how much closer must she get, to stop them?

~My Review~

A psychological thriller? YES! Those are my faves. 

This book had so much promise……

Plot is good. The characters were well written. At times the story seemed to stumble but it ended up finding its way. I feel like I would have enjoyed it more had I not figured it out so soon. There are some good twists and the ending was pretty good. I did love the Alice and Wonderland woven into the story. The Patient is a pretty good read. I will check out more from this author as I did like her writing style. I give this 3 stars.
