(1 customer review)



Book Summary 

Two women. A dying wish. And a web of lies that will bring their world crashing down.

Nina and Marie were best friends—until Nina was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Before she died, Nina asked Marie to fulfill her final wishes.

But her mistake was in thinking Marie was someone she could trust.

What Nina didn’t know was that Marie always wanted her beautiful life, and that Marie has an agenda of her own. She’ll do anything to get what she wants.

Marie thinks she can keep her promise to her friend’s family on her own terms. But what she doesn’t know is that Nina was hiding explosive secrets of her own…

    I loved The Perfect Girlfriend by Karen Hamilton, so I was super excited when I received approval to read The Last Wife. And come on, how beautiful is this cover? Even if I hadn’t read The Perfect Girlfriend, the cover alone would have put The Last Wife on my radar.

    I had a hard time getting into this one, the first 50% of the book was really lackluster. I had a difficult time connecting with Marie, the main character. I am all for crazy narrators, but something was missing, and she was just too much for me. Too creepy or too annoying? I’m not sure what it was. I found myself not caring by this point. Some things did happen in the last half that peaked my interest, but not enough for me to be happy that I picked this one up. This was a slow burn that really dragged on for me.

    I never want to tell someone not to read something as I see poor reviews on books I loved and vice versa. So give this one a shot if you are a slow burn mystery lover, loved The Perfect Girlfriend, or are a fan of Karen Hamilton. If you are the fence then you might not miss much by skipping this one.
