The Widower's Wife

Ana Bacon, a young housewife, tumbles off a cruise ship into the dark and deadly waters, but did she take her secrets with her? 

Investigator Ryan Monahan is a numbers man. So when his company sends him the Bacon case, which could net a ten million dollar payout, Monahan doubts that her death is just a tragic accident. But the husband has a substantial alibi and a number of witnesses claim to have seen Ana fall. So the official ruling seems to be substantiated.

Still, the more Monahan uncovers about Ana’s life, the more he realizes how many people would kill to keep her secrets hidden. And the closer he gets to the truth, the greater the odds grow that he, too, will take a fatal fall.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

My Review

I couldn't tell exactly where this story was going when I started it, but I am so glad I continued reading this book. The story is told in present/flashback style and I could not put the book down! Just when I thought I had it figured out, there would be another twist. The characters feel so real, and you will hate and love them like you know them. This story feels so real, and that is why I think it is so scary. The thought that you might not know the person you thought you knew best is a terrifying one. The suspense keeps you off balance and able to be surprised even if you are sure you have figured it out. The ending was bittersweet and I would love to hear more story about these characters!
