“When she’d been forced to leave San Diego ten months ago, she wasn’t. sure where to go, only that she wanted to be as far away from the West Coast as possible… it needed to be a place where she could start over without standing out.”
Thank you Harper Collins Publishing for gifting me a copy of THE WIFE STALKER by Liv Constantine to read and review.
“Breezing into the tony seaside paradise of Westport, Connecticut, gorgeous thirtysomething Piper Reynard sets down roots, opening a rehab and wellness space and joining a local yacht club. When she meets Leo Drakos, a handsome, successful lawyer, the wedding ring on his finger is the only thing she doesn’t like about him. Yet as Piper well knows, no marriage is permanent.
Meanwhile, Joanna has been waiting patiently for Leo, the charismatic man she fell in love with all those years ago, to re-emerge from the severe depression that has engulfed him. Though she’s thankful when Leo returns to his charming, energetic self, paying attention again to Evie and Stelli, the children they both love beyond measure, Joanna is shocked to discover that it’s not her loving support that’s sparked his renewed happiness—it’s something else.
Piper. Leo has fallen head over heels for the flaky, New Age-y newcomer, and unrepentant and resolute, he’s more than willing to leave Joanna behind, along with everything they’ve built. Of course, he assures her, she can still see the children.
Joanna is devastated—and determined to find something, anything, to use against this woman who has stolen her life and her true love. As she digs deeper into Piper’s past, Joanna begins to unearth disturbing secrets . . . but when she confides to her therapist that she fears for the lives of her ex-husband and children, her concerns are dismissed as paranoia. Can she find the proof she needs in time to save them?”
Well.. this book was interesting!
Liv Constantine have been one of my favorite writing duos for a long time now. I am always impressed with their ability to write such seamless storylines that keep me hooked and wondering if there isn’t something that I’m missing. And that is exactly how I felt the entire time I was reading THE WIFE STALKER.
All of the cards were laid out on the table for this story within the first 50 pages. I had to pause while reading a few times and go back to reread sections as the pieces for the puzzle just weren’t matching up for me. How could Leo walk away from Joanna as easily as he did? Didn’t he take her and his children into consideration? What was wrong with him that he fell so easily for a woman he had only met a few times?
But, don’t you worry, when you read this book and you have those same feelings — just hold tight as all of your questions will be answered in one big twist at the end of this story. I closed the book feeling as if I were experiencing whiplash and my mind was racing trying to figure out how I had missed all of the clues. THE WIFE STALKER is one that I would go back to read again.
Thank you Harper Collins Publishing and Liv Constantine for the opportunity to read and review this book.
