Jean Taylor’s life was blissfully ordinary. Nice house, nice husband. Glen was all she’d ever wanted: her Prince Charming. Until he became that man accused, that monster on the front page. Jean was married to a man everyone thought capable of unimaginable evil. But now Glen is dead and she’s alone for the first time, free to tell her story on her own terms.

This was billed as a psychological thriller and much hype surrounded it for many months. But I have to confess to being rather disappointed in it. It is a sound story, well told, but not psychologically gripping, and as a result of all the misplaced hype I felt very let down, which is not fair on the book, nor on the author. The Widow is a really fascinating story, well told and a very interesting read.

I received a copy of the book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Click on the cover to go to the Amazon book page.
