The Widow by Kaira Rouda

A congressman and his wife were the power couple for many years.

Then a scandal hits about some deal and also about an affair he had with a young staff member.

THE WIDOW takes us through Jody and Martin Asher's life before and after the scandals and as Jody is the push behind him.

Thrown into the mix is the wedding of their daughter whose wedding is to be the talk of the town. 

Will it be the talk of the town for more reasons than how lavish it is to be?

THE WIDOW was not a favorite for me.

It was cleverly done, but I didn't like any of the characters, and it dragged on for me.

There are some surprises at the end, but not enough to make me love the book.

Those readers who enjoy turmoil, secrets, watching characters struggle through solving problems, strong female characters, secrets, and a political backdrop will enjoy this book.  3/5

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