41 posts | 44 read | 39 to read
Bestselling authors Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke make their suspense debut in this twisty, emotional thriller. Elementary school teacher Jacqueline Jacks Moraless marriage was far from perfect, but even in its ups and downs it was predictable, familiar. Or at least she thought it wasuntil two police officers showed up at her door with devastating news. Her husband of eight years, the one who should have been on a business trip to Kansas, had suffered a fatal car accident in Hawaii. And he wasnt alone. For Jacks, laying her husband to rest was hard. But it was even harder to think that his final moments belonged to another womanone who had left behind her own grieving and bewildered fianc?. Nick, just as blindsided by the affair, wants answers. So he suggests that he and Jacks search for the truth together, retracing the doomed lovers last days in paradise. Now, following the twisting path of that fateful road, Jacks is learning that nothing is ever as it seems. Not her marriage. Not her husband. And most certainly not his death

There‘s a gentle rain outside, so it was the perfect morning to walk to the library to get a new book and stop by my favorite coffee shop for a muffin and honey lavender latte. Making these last weeks of summer vacation count!!

brit91 This looks like my kind of morning!!😍 3mo

#MarchIntoThe70s Forgot to review this book I read few weeks ago. Jacks, a schoolteacher believes she‘s married to the guy of her dreams. Yes, there‘s been some bumps in the road but finally she & James are in a good place. So imagine her shock when she discovers her husband, whom she believes is in Kansas for business has died in Hawaii along with another woman, his mistress. Stunned, Jacks decides to search for answers. #WontBeFooledAgain

Jaqueline (Jacks) thinks her husband of 8 years is on a business trip to Kansas but one day cops knock on their door and break the news that he died in a car accident in Hawaii... and he wasn‘t alone. Jacks deals with grief and anger trying to find the truth of where her marriage broke and why her husband was in Hawaii with another woman.

Fast paced read and I found myself just turning the pages.

One of my pet peeves in life is someone reading to me. I have been so very reluctant to try an audio book but I broke down and tried one. I had to pick one I knew I would enjoy if I had to end up with the book. My go to authors are @lisaandliz so I picked #thegoodwidow. I LOVE IT! It made folding laundry go by so much faster and the awful carpool line was amazing.

12/125 The Good Widow was pretty straightforward until the end. Peeling back the layers and telling the story from present to past, switching seamlessly. I never felt lost or like I didn‘t understand whose perspective the story was coming from. I had forgotten that this was supposed to be a thriller. I wanted to know the story and the why behind the what but it wasn‘t until the end where the story gets dark. Dark in a good way, a believable way.

So glad I had the ebook attached to the audio book. I was so hooked I finished this in two days! Mostly listened to it, but was able to read the last 7 chapters in my Kindle app since the two were connected.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat, eagerly waiting for each new reveal. Literally heart racing, sick feeling in my stomach as I waited to go around the next curve. Even if you can sort of see them coming, this book is still an enjoyable page-turner.

I am almost finished this book, and I realized tonight that for about the entire second half I have been tense while reading. I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop. I don't trust the author; I feel there is something huge yet to be revealed and I am both thrilled at the prospect and sick with anxiety while I wait for it.

mom2bugnbee I added this to my TBR just today! I'll be anxious to hear your final thoughts. 2y

I am left feeling just meh about this suspense novel. I found Nick suspicious from the beginning. I also found it lame that Jacks fell in love so quickly after her husbands death. Plus, I don't understand why Nick would have taken her back to the seen of the crime. Wouldn't he want to stay away from there?

MimiLovesToRead @JoeStalksBeck you probably already have the kindle books, that's why they are that price for you and not everyone else. Audible books are cheaper if you have the kindle books already. 2y
monkeygirlsmama I'm sad because I keep hearing about these and my stupid library doesn't have them, nor does Hoopla, or Overdrive. Wtf?! 😭😜 2y
JoeStalksBeck @MimiLovesToRead @Debiw781 yes! But I borrowed them on kindle unlimited I didn't buy them 2y
JoeStalksBeck @monkeygirlsmama I borrowed mine from kindle unlimited 2y
monkeygirlsmama @JoeStalksBeck I don't have that either. Dang. LoL 2y
MimiLovesToRead @JoeStalksBeck that still counts. Even ebooks that you borrow from the library, you can get cheaper from Audible. Sometimes i'll borrow the ebook just so i can get the cheaper audible price. 2y
MimiLovesToRead @monkeygirlsmama you aren't going to find these anywhere but through Amazon because they are published by Amazon. 2y

Okay thriller, but it fell a bit short of being a pick for me. Not really suspenseful, I didn't connect with any of the characters-they were all quite awful-and I saw the twist coming a mile away 😳😬😞

Fans of domestic thrillers, twisted plot lines, and unreliable characters need to add this one to their summer reading list ASAP! It kept me guessing from the very beginning, and just when I was convinced I'd ruined the whole thing by guessing the ending, Lis & Lisa showed me just how wrong I was. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

AmbityScambity @Cinfhen 👏🏻👏🏻 I'll be honest and admit that I was nervous about this one - could this women's fiction duo really pull of domestic fiction? Yes, yes they can. And now I'm sitting here hoping they write some more of it! 🤞🏻 2y

I enjoyed this one. The story was good, the change in perspective and timeline well done and I definitely wanted to keep reading to see what happened. It ended a bit quickly, but it was interesting and somewhat unexpected.

This book was fantastic! It kept me guessing from the very beginning. In fact, I was completely certain that I'd figured it all out by the time I got to page 214. I was way off and was so happy because that's always a disappointment for me-being able to guess the ending. I want to be surprised, and Liz & Lisa delivered! Fans of domestic thrillers, twisted plot lines, and unreliable characters need to add this one to their summer reading list ASAP!
