Three Single Wives by Gina LaManna

How could a discussion at a book club turn out to be deadly?

It can when the book club members discuss how they would kill their husband if he were having an affair, and then someone's husband turns up dead.

Despite the dead husband and the trial transcript that was at the beginning of each chapter, the characters were comical. The things they said on the witness stand were unbelievable.

We find out about each woman from eight months before and then leading up to the fateful book club night and trial. We also are kept in the dark about who the murderer is. We get bounced around from one person to the next. 

All of the women were flawed in one way or another, but for the most part they were likable.  

Penny was a bit on the unlikeable side, though.

Roman, one of the main male characters, was very unlikeable. 


I enjoyed Ms. LaManna’s writing style which brought a nice flow to the book, the structure of the chapters, and of course the storyline. 

THREE SINGLE WIVES KEPT my interest because of the characters' antics, the book talk, and the terrific characters.

If you need a change of pace for a murder mystery, you will want to add this book to your reading list.  

And….Ohhhh….what a great ending.  5/5 

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