The First Wife

The First WifeThe First Wife by Jill Childs

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

People say that real friendship lasts a lifetime, no matter the time, no matter the distance. Therefore, when Sophie receives Caroline’s email asking to come and spend some time at her new and beautiful beach house, she takes this opportunity to reunite with her childhood friend.

After a cold meet up, Sophie meets Caroline’s family: handsome and dashing husband Dominic and shy daughter Lucy. As days go by, Caroline and Dominic’s constant absence from the house leaves little Lucy in Sophie’s care. And the more time she spends with the little girl, the more concerned she gets about her strange behavior. Questions are raising in Sophie’s head, and shortly after discovering Caroline’s secret she finds herself in danger.

The First Wife” is a gripping page-turner. I enjoyed the plot, the characters, and thrilling twists. I will honestly admit, it took me a while to realize the real truth behind Caroline’s character, nevertheless, the finale was a cherry on top of the cake. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for a free and advanced copy of the novel and Jill Childs’ for a phenomenal read.
