Publisher's Summary

Wife. Mistress. Murderer.
If you were being framed for murder, how far would you go to clear your name?
The debut psychological thriller for fans of Apple Tree Yard, Behind Closed Doors and Double Jeopardy.
I'm not guilty of murder.
Bethany Reston is happily married. But she's also having an affair with a famous client. And no one can ever know.
But that doesn't make me innocent.
When Bethany's lover is brutally murdered, she has to hide her grief from everyone. But someone knows her secret. And then one day the threats begin. With an ever-growing pile of evidence pointing to her as the murderer, the only way she can protect her secrets is to prove her innocence. And that means tracking down a killer.
An incredibly taut, tense game of cat and mouse - with a twist you'll never see coming.

A Sparkling Little Jewel of a Thriller

The Guilty Wife is a short but very well-formed psychological thriller that crackles along at a quite electric space. An illicit affair turns into a nightmare scenario for a young professional photographer and her situation unravels at a bewildering pace. It’s full of twists and turns without ever really getting too complicated. It never worries too much about detail or any great levels of character development. It’s a book that I wanted to keep reading and enjoyed very much with a very good narrator to boot.

It’s just about perfect if you want a quick-fire piece of escapism and are happy to overlook a few plot holes that do appear, especially in the last part of the book. Possibly not so good if you’re looking for something a little more deeper and well-developed. Just have fun with it.

Yeah... it’s was ok

I mean I enjoyed the book an all that but the twist was pretty obvious as there were not enough characters delved into .... the ending was dumb and didn’t explain everything...
the narrator did well and I guess I’d kinda recommend it ...

The Guilty Wife

Very interesting read - I did guess the culprit but not until near the end. Enjoyed the narrator - very intriguing voices 😁
