Second Wives by Carey Baldwin / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @careybaldwin

There’s been a terrible accident, Brigid, but the only thing that matters is that I love you. We’ll get through this together.” As I slowly wake in my hospital bed, my darling husband’s familiar voice soothes me. Yet, as I look across at him, I can’t shake the feeling that this is not my husband at all…Later, I realize the awful truth. Because of my injury, I’m unable to feel the same emotion towards those I loved. The doctor calls this emotional amnesia, but gazing over at my husband, I call it torture.As the weeks pass, my family and friends keep me going, especially Charity. Years before, she married my ex-husband and I, in turn, married hers. To keep our friendship group together we kept things civil – I thought we had the perfect blended family.But once I’m back home, I begin to notice Charity inserting herself into my family. At first it’s little things, her hand lingering a moment too long on my husband’s back, playing the role of hostess in my home at a family barbeque. Then I see her encouraging her wayward brother to pay my only daughter more attention and I feel instantly threatened.That evening, I am haunted by a familiar nightmare of an unknown man forcing someone under water, vowing that their next breath will be their last. As I gasp for air, my husband tries to comfort me.But lying there in his arms, I feel anything but reassured. With no one I can really trust, I have to ask myself: does the man who gave me a second chance at love want me gone?




The first chapter made me smile :). I thought, well yes, why not. As long as everybody is happy, right? 😉
The next few chapters felt not like a thriller at all. It was more about domestic and family problems and I was wondering where the author was going to take me. 

They always say that good things come to those who wait. And I waited because the story intrigued me and the more I read the more confused I became. I really still did not see it, but I was hooked. That is a fact.

Suddenly the author gave us a view inside the head of the bad one. I still had not the slightest idea who was talking to us through the pages at that moment. Was it a woman or a man? Young or old? Friend or stranger? I honestly could not tell you even if I wanted to.

Some people do not have any scruples at all. They stop at nothing to achieve their goals. All the rest is collateral damage. When the going gets tough, you can count on your friends. But sometimes help comes from a different corner too.

And then everything falls into place and I just loved, loved, loved it. In my opinion one of the best books I have read. 5 stars

Thank you
