The Second Wife By Rebecca Fleet
‘The Second Wife’ is the latest book by Rebecca Fleet.
When Alex met Natalie she changed his life. After the tragic death of his first wife, which left him a single parent to teenage daughter Jade, he’s determined to build a happy family. But his new-found happiness is shattered when the family home is gutted by fire and his loyalties are unexpectedly tested. Jade insists she saw a man in the house on the night of the fire; Natalie denies any knowledge of such an intruder. Alex is faced with an impossible choice: to believe his wife or his daughter? And as Natalie’s story unravels, Alex realises that his wife has a past he had no idea about, a past that might yet catch up with her.
If you enjoy a thriller that really grips your attention, I can wholeheartedly recommend ‘The Second Wife’, a taunt and mysterious story that gets the reader engaged throughout.
After a fire leaves his daughter in hospital and she mentions a strange man following her, Alex begins to question his second wife’s past when he discovers a mysterious photograph of a woman and man. Natalie then reveals her past, her troubled sister and Alex finds himself wondering what is real and fake with Natalie.
The story is written in past and tense storylines with different narratives. Alex’s primary concern is his daughter’s safety whilst his love for Natalie is strong, Natalie finds herself having to face up to a past that she thought she long buried. The characters are interesting and I particularly enjoyed scenes with Natalie and her sister Sadie, a troubled character with an attraction to bad men.
Cleverly written with a strong storyline, ‘The Second Wife’ is a complex and thrilling mystery with unreliable perspectives and suspicious characters, this engaging story is a full on and dramatic domestic noir that will have you racing through the pages!
You can buy ‘The Second Wife’ from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.
