When my husband’s mistress was found brutally murdered, I was the one imprisoned for the crime.
I was willing to do whatever it took to prove my innocence. When Dr. Evelyn Powell showed up on visiting day, I was shocked to learn she was my husband’s new fiancé. I befriended her in hopes of finding answers to my questions.
Was my husband behind the brutal slaying? If I wanted to regain my freedom, I had to figure out a way to convince Evelyn to betray the man she loved and search for the evidence that would prove my innocence. After all, if I was right about my husband, she could be his next victim.
A psychological thriller with a twist you’ll have to read to believe.
My Husband’s Fiancée : My Review
At the beginning of this novel, we are met with a scene of utter chaos. Liz is being arrested for the murder of her husband’s mistress.
The book goes on to introduce us more in depth to Liz’s character, and the sadness of losing a child. After this tragedy happened, on top of everything she’s already struggling with, we find out that her husband, Nathan, is having an affair.
This sets Liz on a collision course of disaster and some coping mechanisms that I would not recommend. (Buying supplies to carry out a murder isn’t a good look, regardless of whether or not you actually intend to carry it out.)
Throughout the web of the story, we find out that not only is Nathan planning to marry again, but his fiancé is pregnant. Their meetings in the jail provide a ton of insight into both of their characters.
The ending was a huge surprise that leaves the door wide open for a sequel.
Not everyone is who they appear to be. Mental health issues are real, and should be dealt with seriously instead of just on a surface level. Liz’s story is compelling and a true page turner.
I was gripped from start to finish.
