ABOUT THIS BOOK
Everyone brings baggage to a new relationship.
When Alex met Natalie she changed his life. After the tragic death of his first wife, which left him a single parent to teenage daughter Jade, he’s determined to build a happy family.
But his new-found happiness is shattered when the family home is gutted by fire and his loyalties are unexpectedly tested. Jade insists she saw a man in the house on the night of the fire; Natalie denies any knowledge of such an intruder.
Alex is faced with an impossible choice: to believe his wife or his daughter? And as Natalie’s story unravels, Alex realises that his wife has a past he had no idea about, a past that might yet catch up with her.
But this time, the past could be deadly . . .
Rebecca Fleet's first thriller, The House Swap, was gripping from the very first page and THE SECOND WIFE is no different - a twisting tale of lies and danger that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Alex wasn't sure if he would ever fall in love again after the death of his wife, and mother of his little girl, but when he met Natalie everything changed. Natalie brought happiness back into their lives and over the years did everything she could to make Jade and himself feel loved and cherished. Tragedy strikes again on a night when Alex is on a night out, when their house is burned down and Natalie and Jade narrowly escape with their lives. Except Jade claims that it wasn't an accident. She saw a man in the house who frightened her but Natalie denies the existence of this man. Who is lying and more importantly why? As Alex starts to dig a little deeper into what happened that night, he soon realises that Natalie isn't exactly what she appears to be and the secrets from her past may just cost someone their life ...
Compelling, fresh, and with plenty of twists and turns to keep you on your toes, THE SECOND WIFE by Rebecca Fleet is sure to be a hit with all thriller and suspense fans. I enjoyed wearing my detective hat alongside Alex as he tried to understand what is happening to his world and just who exactly wants to hurt them, but this well-detailed plot certainly left me guessing.
THE SECOND WIFE by Rebecca Fleet is a cracking good read and I am looking forward to the next book already!
Rebecca Fleet lives in London and works in Windsor. Her debut thriller, The House Swap, was published in 2018 to great acclaim. The Second Wife is her eagerly anticipated second thriller.
