The Second Marriage

The Second Marriage by Jess Ryder

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Jess Ryder is becoming one of my favorite domestic thriller writers.

As Lily walks down the aisle to a rich and handsome silver fox, known as her soon-to-be husband, her dreams for the future are bright and full of possibilities. But as soon as the ceremony has ended – married life becomes nothing of what she has expected. As mystery after mystery keeps pilling over Lily’s head, she decides to dig deeper into her husband’s life… the life before his second marriage.

I loved the build-up of the plot. The suspense has gotten better with each chapter. Although Lily’s constant need to share everything with Edward was annoying me a bit. This novel has everything you want for a gripping thriller: bratty stepdaughters, mysterious dead wife, alarming comments made by a kid stepson. I loved the web of lies the novel has presented and was pleasantly impressed by Lily’s courage to expose the truth at the end. It was such a fast read, I would absolutely read more of Jess Ryder’s books. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture publisher for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
