Lila Ridgefield lives in an idyllic college town, but not everything is what it seems. Lila isn’t what she seems.

A student vanishedmonths ago. Now, Lila’s husband, Aaron, is also missing. At first these cases are treated as horrible coincidences until it’s discovered the student is really the third of three unexplained disappearances over the last few years. The police are desperate to find the connection, if there even is one. Little do they know they might be stumbling over only part of the truth….

With the small town in an uproar, everyone isworried about the whereabouts of their beloved high school teacher. Everyone except Lila, his wife. She’s definitely confused about her missing husband but only because she was the last person to see his body, and now it’s gone.

    Pretty Little Wife really surprised me. I hadn’t heard much about it yet , which I personally feel, can be a good thing! You guys, I could not put this book down! It was twisted on so many levels and for the most part, none of which I saw coming! I’m not sure if I was supposed to love or hate Lila’s character but I really liked her! I also loved Ginny’s character and seeing inside both of their minds as the case goes on, was a real treat! I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.

    I really enjoyed this one, but I found it to be a little long. I did it as part as an IRL buddy read and we both agreed too long, excellent short chapters, did a great job of keeping our interest, and we were overall glad we read. It kept us both guessing through out as well. I liked the twist, but considering how long it was I thought the ending and the main twist could have been less rushed.

    A debut thriller for this psuedonym of an award winning author, HelenKay Dimon. And it SHOWS. I was pretty much hooked from the get go but it took til about halfway in that the hook grew barbs and there was no letting go. Just when you think it went sideways, it actually went chevron and my head was zinging from all the back and forth. Loving every bit of it!

    I was super happy to be right in a few distinct things… but it took a lot for me to get there AND I still didn’t foresee this, this and THAT. OoOoooOOO, this is one twisty goodness of a ride. Put on your seatbelt and helmet. Safety FIRST my friends! It was an absolute pleasure being in Lila and Ginny’s heads. I really grew to care about them both and fascinated to see how everything was going to play out. Lila with her history and missing husband….. Ginny with her role in the police department and a boss who doesn’t give her enough credit. Phewww… she certainly could hold her tongue and I applaud her for that.

    It’s SO hard to write a review about a book that has so many little (and big) things going on because I want to shout out about the genius behind a lot of it but I can’t because spoilers and I can’t do that to y’all. For me, this was a highly entertaining read and a story that starts out very interestingly and then culminates into a little bit of madness. Domestic suspense done incredibly well. If you need a binge worthy read, grab your adult beverage, pint of ice cream, fuzzy blanket and slot out a few hours.

    I read all night to finish this book, I literally could not stop reading it! It went a completely different direction than I expected ✨
    .
    It takes off at a fast clip from the very beginning and continues that pace throughout.

    I highly recommend this one! I really loved it!
    It’s very Karin Slaughter-y but not quite as graphic. I look forward to more from this author!
