The Second Wife by Sheryl Browne


She made her bed. You’ll lie in it.

Rebecca only wanted to help out – to be kind. Richard seemed so alone after his wife, Nicole, died, and Rebecca wanted to make sure he knew he had someone to rely on.

But now she’s in Nicole’s immaculate house. Drinking from her favourite crystal wine glass. Keeping shoes in her orderly closet. Comforting her sweet and grieving step-daughter. It feels like Rebecca is living another woman’s life.

And as she gets to know the neighbours, Rebecca hears stories that make her wonder: was free-spirited Nicole happy in this perfect life, or did she feel trapped? Did she feel, as Rebecca is beginning to, that something wasn’t quite right?


MOMO’s REVIEW                   

Breath-takingly brilliant as we have become to expect from the amazingly talented Sheryl Browne.

This is an author who has the ability to ensure that once you begin reading you will be held captive in the fast moving plot until the final page. This is an unusual story with many twists which had me completely gripped.

Sheryl Browne has a remarkable talent for twisting the story whilst keeping it completely believeable.  I experienced a wide range of emotions whilst reading.  Absolutely brilliant Sheryl… can’t wait for your next release!!
