The Last Wife by Karen Hamilton

Would you be able to carry out a dying friend’s wish to be sure to protect her family?

Marie takes Nina’s request to heart and perhaps to an extreme.

Marie moved into Nina’s home to get closer to Stuart, Nina’s husband, and assume care of the children.

Marie also found out some things that a best friend like Nina should definitely have told her and didn’t. 

Then a mutual friend from many years ago appears on the scene and still rubs Marie the wrong way.  Marie doesn't know what Camille is up to in all of this.

The more Marie finds out about Nina, the more she is determined to find out who Nina really was, what Nina really thought of her, and why she really asked Nina to make that promise.

We could ask Marie the same questions and add a question about what she is up to now and was up to with her past relationship with Nina.

THE LAST WIFE has a tense, sinister undertone which makes it so good.

It will keep you on your toes because of the characters with questionable traits, secrets, and long-held lies. 

THE LAST WIFE is for readers who like not knowing who to trust or who to believe and a story line that will keep you guessing and wondering how it will all turn out.  5/5

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