First, I would like to thank Net Galley and St. Martin’s Press for being able to read this book early.
I was really excited to read this book since I enjoyed the The Good Sister. So, the Aston family has a lot going on. You begin to see that clearly as you keep reading. Tully and her husband are currently dealing with a bad investment that is causing them to lose their home. Rachel (Tully’s sister) hasn’t dated anyone since she was 16. Stephen (their father), is about to get married to a woman named Heather, however, he is still married to Tully and Rachel’s mother, Pam. Heather, is younger then Stephen’s daughters and has a secret past. Everyone in this family has secrets and of course their father falling in love with another woman is a problem for Tully and Rachel.
The one thing I loved about this book, was reading and learning about the characters. Hepworth really knows how to write a good book that makes you want to keep reading and not put the book down.
I was more of a fan of the writing than the story. I enjoyed the story up until the end. The ending, for me, was very underwhelming and not what I was expecting from a book labeled as a “thriller”. However, the mystery is still there.
Have you read any other books by Sally Hepworth? Do you plan on reading The Younger Wife?
