As a child, Bailey Browne dreamed of a knight in shining armor swooping in to rescue her and her mother. As she grows older, those dreams transform, becoming ones of a mysterious stranger who will sweep her off her feet and whisk her away from her ordinary existence. Then, suddenly, there he is.
Despite the 10-year difference in their ages, her working class upbringing and his of privilege, Logan Abbott and Bailey fall deeply in love. Marriage quickly follows. But when Logan brings her home to his horse farm in Louisiana, a magnificent estate on ninety wooded acres, her dreams of happily-ever-after begin to unravel. A tragic family history she knew nothing about surfaces, plus whisperings about the disappearance of his first wife True, and rumors about the women from the area who have gone missing - and when another woman disappears, all signs point to her husband's involvement.
At first Bailey ignores the whispers, even as circumstantial evidence against Logan mounts. But finally, Bailey must make a choice: believe what everyone says - or bet her life on the man she loves, but is realizing she hardly knows. From the author of Justice for Sara, Erica Spindler's The First Wife is a thrilling new novel that will have you gasping every minute.

Like a long winded soap opera
Amateur Writing at its Worst
No I would not. The characters, plot and narration grated on me to the point that I had to stop listening. This book was not mysterious or smart. The characters were one dimensional, whiny and unrealistic - like characters from a Soap Opera. The main character was supposed to be a grown woman and yet she whinges and bemoans her way through the book like a spineless teenaged girl. It was infuriating to listen to her naïve and downright stupid narration through the book.
The entire story was a HUGE disappointment and a waste of a credit.
She really made all the women sound like hysterical, weak little girls. Her voice, when narrating dramatic and/ or emotional scenes literally made me roll my eyes and curse in annoyance.
If I could play editor, I'd throw the book back at the author and tell her to try again.
Waste of a credit!!! Amateur writing and rage inducing narration. No thanks.
