Book Description

What happens when the perfect family trip becomes the perfect nightmare?

Cara is a devoted mother to two little girls. She loves her hectic life, but she looks forward to a relaxing weekend alone while her husband, Michael, takes the kids on a camping trip.

But their dream trip turns into a nightmare when their daughters are taken, deep in the forest.

One is returned safe. But one is still missing.

As Cara and Michael frantically search for their little girl it becomes clear that this is no random abduction – her disappearance is linked to shocking secrets which are only now being revealed.

And Cara begins to wonder how well she really knows her husband. Is the stress making her paranoid? Or is she finally seeing him as he really is?

Time is running out. How far will Cara go to find her daughter?

The Secret Wife – the stunning psychological thriller perfect for fans of Teresa Driscoll, Cathryn Grant, Daniel Hurst

My Review:

Told in alternating chapters from Cara and Michael’s perspectives, you are privy to both parents keeping secrets which slowly unfold during the story. As I read the book, I’m not sure if I liked either Cara or Michael, but I was really driven forward wanting to know their secrets. Since I am a frequent reader of psychological thrillers, I don’t usually trust the narrators, so knowing I was leary of anything Michael and Cara said.

There are twists and turns along the way and while some are easily foreseen, you won’t see others coming. This book is definitely plot driven and was fast paced. I read it in about a day. If you like fast paced domestic thrillers, you should enjoy this one.
