My friends at Wunderkind PR sent me a galley of Kate White’s latest novel: The Second Husband. This was a suspenseful read, focusing on a young woman who is just trying to live her best life and put her past behind her. But moving on with her new husband is challenging when questions from her past marriage keep popping up.
Here’s the scoop:
Recovering from the unsolved murder of her first husband, Derrick, thirtysomething Emma Hawke has built a new life with Tom, a handsome, successful, and loving widower who finally makes her feel safe again. Then one day a police detective shows up at their house on the Connecticut shore, asking questions about Derrick’s death. Emma was sure she’d been cleared in the days after the tragedy. So why is law enforcement taking another look now—and questioning the timing of her relationship with Tom? She hadn’t even met him until after Derrick’s death.
With twists and turns all the way to the last page, this fast-paced, expertly plotted novel will have you asking that age-old question: how well do you really know the ones you love?
This was a great psychological thriller and one that was hard to put down. I really was hopeful that Emma would be able to put her past behind her and I liked the ending as it was not easy to predict.
Thank you for my ARC!
