The wife who knew too much

Michele Campbell


In my opinion...


This was a great escapist and hard to put down read for over the Christmas period- fast paced, full of suspense with a sympathetic narrator. Full of twists and turns; even though I guessed who'd done what, there were still enough questions to keep me racing through looking for answers right to the end.


I liked the technique of using Nina's diary to explain some of the back story & was taken in by a few red herrings thrown to me.

Characters were horribly credible, the setting felt aspirationally authentic & Tabitha's concerns felt very human.


I only took a star away as I found the ending a little unsatisfactory- but maybe I was just grumpy after staying up until midnight to finish it, that it did not end as I wanted it to, as certainly there were enough nail biting moments prior to the end !


A great novel to lose yourself in on a grey winter afternoon.
