Publisher's Summary

Ana Bacon, a beautiful young wife and mother, tumbled off a cruise ship into dark and deadly waters. Ana is gone - leaving behind her wealthy husband and adorable daughter - but not everything about her disappearance adds up. What secrets did she leave behind?
Investigator Ryan Monahan is a numbers man. So when his company sends him the Bacon case, which could net a 10 million-dollar payout, Monahan doubts that her death is just a tragic accident. But the husband has a substantial alibi and a number of witnesses claim to have seen Ana fall, and the official ruling seems to hold up.
Still, the more Monahan uncovers about Ana's life, the more he realizes how many people would kill to keep her secrets hidden. And the closer he gets to the truth, the greater the odds grow that he, too, will take a fatal fall.

The Widower's wife

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Widower's Wife?

It is told with two storylines intertwined. Ryan's investigation in late November and early December is interspersed with Ana and Tom Bacon's decision in October to defraud the insurance company . It has many suspenseful parts that it was hard to pause while listening to the audiobook.

Could have been better

Good story line, but started to veer off my "keep me interested" track half way through. I finished it, hoping it would get better, but it became less believable in the waning chapters.
