Book Review: Pretty Little Wife by Darby Kane

Pretty Little Wife was a delightful mystery with a great twist. The main character, though morally ambiguous at best, managed to be somewhat sympathetic. I did guess pieces of the big twist early on, but I think we’re meant to because the foreshadowing is pretty heavy. Eagle eyed readers may catch hints of the truth, but they were so small that I simply disregarded them. That had me saying “ohhhhhhh” out loud by the time I got to the climax.

I was hooked from the very beginning and finished this book in record time for me. I found myself telling my husband that I just wanted to read because I had to know what happened.

Overall, I give it four stars. Excellent story, but the main character’s apathy and stoicism were a bit of a turn off for me.
