The Mistress by Jill Childs / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @author_jill 



It wasn’t until that night that I found out he had been cheating. I never would have guessed it of Ralph – I was still head over heels in love with him then. I would have done anything for my husband… that is, until I found out what he was really hiding.

The night it happened, I was late home from a parent-teacher conference. Things hadn’t been the same between us recently and I was hoping we could start over – make things right over a bottle of wine and an early night like the old days. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

I sometimes think I never really knew Ralph at all. Because I never thought he’d be capable of doing what he did. It wasn’t only dangerous, it was very, very wrong. And I’m not talking about the affair with Laura.

As I said, I came home that night hoping to finally fix things with the man I love. The very last thing I expected was to find my husband murdered

No marriage is ever what it seems from the outside.




The beginning drops us right in the middle of the action! 

Once we have had time to take a breather, the book turns in a romantic story when we are taken back in time. The charming husband forgets about his wedding vows and acts like he is still a happy single. But often things are not what they seem and it becomes clear very fast that it’s also true here…

The author knows how to add some passages that are creepy with capital C that had chills running down my spine. How I love that!

Once a cheater, always a cheater apparently and you keep on doing it until that final drop hits the bucket and makes it overflow, because that’s when the cat and the mouse change roles…

Playing mind games can be fun until you are on the receiving end. I loved this book and give it 5 stars without a doubt.

Thank you, Jill Childs and Bookouture
