Blog Tour:The Second Wife by Sheryl Browne
Today I am excited to join the Bookouture blog tour for Sheryl Browne's latest thriller, The Second Wife!
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 Train, The Wife Between Us and The Girl Before, you’ll be totally gripped and unable to put down this twisty page-turning psychological thriller.
The Second Wife is the kind of page turner I have come to expect from Sheryl Browne. The story moves at a quick pace, and offers plenty of twists and turns along the way This author is great at building tension, creating a clever story with developed and engaging characters - though not necessarily likable ones. I liked that it was told from multiple points of view and times, which can sometimes be a bit messy, but in this case added depth and mystery to the way the plot unfolded. I especially liked how the letters from Nicole added to the story and gave insight into her marriage.
This is a story about friendship and betrayal and I enjoyed it from start to finish!

About the author
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.
