A wife accused of the murder of the husband’s mistress. Author Terry Lynn Thomas gave me a fun read where all the characters go through their paces in the book.

This was a straightforward story of a louse of a husband and the divorce attorney of a wife who was soon caught in the whole rigmarole. A murder was the focus of the investigation with the cops bearing down on the wife.

Having read books by this author, I would say I liked this one more. The writing was easy where I didn’t really have to concentrate too hard. The story had enough emotions and subplots to keep me hooked.

I had the audio version of the book too so the narrator was excellent. I could listen to the book at 1.5 speed with her intonation and expressions.

The ending dragged slightly but it was okay. I didn’t mind it. Overall, I would say this is one of my most easiest and fast reads of 2021.


Rating: 4 out of 5.





Attorney Olivia Sinclair is shocked when she receives an anonymous video showing her husband Richard sleeping with someone else. After years of handling other people’s divorces, she thought she could recognise a marriage in trouble.

She angrily throws Richard out of the home they share. But days later she’s arrested—for the murder of his mistress.

Olivia knows she’s innocent but, with all the evidence pointing at her and an obvious motive, she must find the real killer to clear her name.

She may be used to dealing with messy divorces, but this one will be her most difficult case yet. Olivia’s husband has already betrayed her—but would he set her up for murder?


Publication Date: January 2021

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.

    • With your strict ratings, I would say a 3 star or less. The author wrote gentle hist fic mystery, the last book I read. But here the protagonist, the accused, was 62 years old. So I liked that age was not a bias as in most books
