The Ex-Wife – Jess Ryder

You’ve got everything she wants …

Newly married Natasha has the perfect house, a loving husband and a beautiful little girl called Emily. She’d have it all if it wasn’t for Jen, her husband’s ex-wife who just won’t leave them alone …

Then Natasha returns home one day to find her husband and Emily gone without trace. Desperate to get her daughter back, Natasha will do anything even if it means accepting an offer of help from Jen. But can she trust her? And do either of them really know the man they married?



My review

Oh boy, if you think the prologue messed with your head, wait untill you read the rest of the story. It’s not only a bumpy road but it’s one full of twists and turns as well.
You don’t know who you can trust and who speaks the truth and if you finally decide someone is on your side, you realize you were wrong or were you right after all?
This book is full of emotions. It’s full of suspense, but your heart will be affected as well. Normally the tension dies down at the end of a story because everything is resolved and revealed, but in this case it does let you go. The thread still lingers…
5 stars well deserved.

Thank you, Jess Ryder, Bookouture and Negalley
