This review is dedicated to my friend Sandy whose love for this book pushed me to read mine.
What the freak!! One dead body and two wives as the suspects. It couldn’t get more brilliant than that. Excitement raced through me as I staryed reading the clever words of the author Tess Stimson. She blew me away with the way she layered the book with scenes which made me swing like a pendulum suspecting everyone.
Family drama at its best, the lies overflowed when each chapter revealed its secrets. One part of me was glad the husband died. Told in dual narratives of both wives, the ex and the present, along with the police interviews, the story was one delicious twist after another. Who could have done it? At one point, I was sure, had I been in the plot, I would have done it. But I didn’t… I was in the sidelines peering in.
A story with complex relationship with inner plotting and outer niceties, the book was a pandora’s box where all the sins flew when the lid was opened and culminated with a finality of murder.
A perfect whodunit set in a family who loved each other – So not – with an explosive end. Simply UNPUTDOWNABLE.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Both of them loved him. One of them killed him . . .
Louise has had to watch her husband, Andrew, start a new family in the four years since he left her. The ‘other woman’ is now his wife – but Louise isn’t ready to let Caz enjoy the life that was once hers, or to let go of the man she still loves.
As Louise starts to dig into Caz’s past, the two women’s pretence of civility starts to slip. But in trying to undermine each other, they discover more about the man they both married.
And when Andrew is murdered at a family party, both women are found standing over the body.
And when Andrew is murdered during the anniversary celebrations, both women are found standing over the body.
It’s always the wife. But which one?
