REVIEW: The Second Husband

Emma is a widow who has remarried and begun to move on with her life. Her first husband was murdered and the killer was never caught. She was once a suspect and is alarmed when a detective says she is reopening the case. This simple conversation sends Emma into a bit of a tailspin questioning everything from her life before and everything in her life now.

Kate White books are not so much thrillers as well written, pacey mysteries. Like The Fiancee, I’d struggle to tell you the big twist here but rather there is a steady build with great clues along the way to help you solve the puzzle. I appreciate that more than thrillers with one jaw dropping twist that comes out of nowhere and has no real basis. This was a thoughtful novel with breakneck pace. It was so easy to feel Emma’s growing unease and anxiety and question everyone around her.  

Thanks to Harper for the gifted copy. All opinions above are my own.
