His Loving Wife by Miranda Smith

We meet Andrew, Kate, Willow, and Noah who were the victims of a home invasion and whose effects are still with them.

When the police find out who the intruder was and that he was someone Kate dated in college, her husband raises questions about why Kate never told him that her old college boyfriend had been stalking her and that she was meeting with him before the invasion.   

Is this the reason he invaded their home?  Did he want Kate back?

To help with the trauma, a year later the family takes a surprise vacation as they try to forget that night, but no one will ever forget it.

We follow the family in the present and months before.

Andrew and Kate seem more distant than usual, and the vacation didn't seem to be helping.

Andrew is always on his computer talking to his friends and Kate can’t get over the fact that she still thinks the intruder is there at the beach and that Andrew still doesn’t believe that she and the intruder didn’t have an affair.

On top of everything, they have to deal with a moody teenager, a son who is timid, and secrets.

You can just feel the underlying tension everywhere.  Ms. Smith did a great job with having that tension felt.

HIS LOVING WIFE has twists, turns, lies, and surprises.

The ending is a HUGE surprise. 4/5
