The Second Wife by Sheryl Browne #BlogTour @SherylBrowne @bookouture

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?

The book everyone’s talking about! If you loved The Girl on the TrainThe Wife Between Us and The Girl Before, you’ll be totally gripped and unable to put down this twisty page-turning psychological thriller.

My Thoughts

Sheryl Browne has totally smashed it with her third Psychological thriller and brings us another page turner. Boy does this lady know how to write. Grabbing me from the very first page we follow a story that alternates mainly between Rebecca and Nicole the two main characters taking us on a journey between past and present. Building up a story that you won’t be able to put down. Talk about gripping and addictive each chapter leaves you wanting more….I couldn’t read this fast enough. The more I read the more I wanted to know. Love, love, loved it !!

This is a story that is full of twists and turns that will have you hooked. The author certainly knows how to build the tension up keeping you on your toes. Just when I thought I had worked it out the author throws in another twist…Yes this story has plenty of OMG moments where I found myself shouting at the book pulling me in every direction going!

With only a hand full of characters, some that you will love and not like but that’s all part of the story…read it for yourself and you will see what I mean. You can feel the emotion through the author’s superb writing skills. I actually think this would make a brilliant film.

Every book of Sheryl’s gets better and better with this being her best one yet. For me Sheryl is the queen of Psychological thrillers….Sheryl you absolutely rock.

I cannot recommend this book enough giving it all the stars.

Thank you to Kim Nash for an ARC and for inviting me to take part on blog tour.

Bestselling Author, Sheryl Browne, brings you powerful psychological thriller and contemporary fiction.  A member of the Crime Writers’ Association and the Romantic Novelists’ Association, and previously writing for award winning Choc Lit, Sheryl has several books published and two short stories in Birmingham City University anthologies, where she completed her MA in Creative Writing.

So why does Sheryl write in two genres? Quoting E. L. Doctorow, Sheryl says: “Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights…” This she thinks sums up a writer’s journey, you never quite know where you are going until you get there. You might start with an outline, but a strong character will always divert from the plot. If Sheryl’s not sure where a character is going, she simply has to trust him to show her the way. Plus, according to one reviewer, she also has a scary insight into the mind of a psychopath.
