Book Summary

There is no limit to the lies, suspicion, and secrets that can poison the perfect marriage in this twisting novel of suspense by USA Today bestselling author Kaira Rouda.

Kate Nelson had it all. A flourishing company founded with her husband, John; a happy marriage; and a daughter, Ashlyn. The picture-perfect family. Until John left for another woman. Tish is half his age. Ambitious. She’s cultivated a friendship with Ashlyn. Tish believes she’s won.

She’s wrong.

Tish Nelson has it all. Youth, influence, a life of luxury, and a new husband. But the truth is, there’s a lot of baggage. Namely, his first wife―and suspicions of his infidelity. After all, that’s how she got John. Maybe it’s time for a romantic getaway, far from his vindictive ex. If Kate plans on getting John back, Tish is one step ahead of her.

She thinks.

But what happens next is something neither Kate nor Tish saw coming. As best-laid plans come undone, there’s no telling what a woman will do in the name of love―and revenge.

    I loved Kair Rouda’s previous two books, so The Next Wife was one of my most anticipated books of the year. I love books with multiple perspectives and this one gives us four different narrators for four different main characters-the next wife, the previous wife, the daughter, and the husband.

    I read this one in a day which hardly even happens during the work week, it def kept my attention. It was a fun read! Like her previous books I feel like obsession played a huge underlying theme in this book. Great easy thriller for domestic thriller fans and fans of Kaira Rouda!

    “Sad, isn’t it? How love can so quickly turn to something so painful.”

    OMG these women….. both women are rightfully Mrs. Nelson, but who will win in the end? The first and original, Kate? Or the much younger and tenacious current, Tish? Let the good times roll…

    This book grabbed me right from the beginning. One thing I love about Rouda’s writing style are the short chapters that make her reads SO EASY to binge – and we all know how much I love a one-sit read. Neither of the women are ones you want to cross so it was a delight to watch the back and forth. Yep, I made myself a big old bowl of popcorn and pop pop pop —- was delivered with a very entertaining story that makes me never want to get married, first OR next!

    If you’re an avid thriller reader then you’ll likely find this a bit predictable. I was right in my assumption so wasn’t surprised with any reveal. At times, the dialogue felt off and it felt a tad bit repetitive in certain places. However, the entertainment is absolutely there. Think of it as that dark Lifetime movie that we all love to enjoy. Do prepare yourself to suspend just a little bit of reality as some things just got washed over, but stay for the battle. There really is “no telling what a woman will do in the name of love – and revenge.”
