The Younger Wife by Sally Hepworth

The Ashton family has enough problems, and now their father has a young girlfriend, Heather, who he is going to marry.

What is he doing? Their mother is still living and is in a home for dementia patients?

The Ashton family includes two daughters - one is a kleptomaniac and married - another owns a business and doesn't have a partner, but she has a reason for that. 

The addition of Heather who lies about her past doesn’t appear to be a good idea.

An unidentified narrator adds mystery and intrigue because you don’t know where this character fits into the mix.

The book starts out with the wedding and then a scream. What happened?

We follow the family
and find out about each family member after the wedding and before Pamela the wife and mother is diagnosed with dementia.

Lots of twists, secrets, lies, and lots of drama.

Which family member doesn’t have secrets and just what are the secrets?

Sally Hepworth always keeps you turning the pages.  

This is another engaging, thoughtful read.  4/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via Netgalley for an honest review.
