The Three Mrs. Wrights by Linda Keir

Trip, Jonathan, Jack...which one was he? He had a different name for each woman he was seducing.

How did he keep his names and his stories straight about who he was?

Hopefully he will slip up one day. 

One slip came out when Johnathan's wife, Holly, had a friend tell her that her husband saw Jonathan on a flight to Los Angeles. Really? He said he was going to San Francisco. 

We follow Trip, Jonathan, and Jack as he sets up three women and uses them for his advantage and for helping him increase his wealth.

None of the three even has a clue about what he’s been doing for the past 20 some years.  

What a liar and a con man he was.  He had an answer for every question and situation that came up when  the women asked him where he was and why something happened.

I did enjoy the basic premise and was hoping they would find out about Trip, Jonathan, and Jack, but all the background and details about each of his business adventures made the book drag for me. 

The first quarter of the book was not interesting at all. I about gave up until something happened that peaked my interest, but the book still wasn’t pull you in until the last quarter.  The last quarter was excellent.

I had to keep going to see what happened so I guess it did pull me in at some point.  :) 3/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I feel bad for Holly, even though I don't know what it's like to be cheated on I suspect it would feel awlfull to have someone you trusted and love to sleep with someone else.
