What does TWG think?
Happy publication day, Shalini Boland and ‘The Millionaire’s Wife’. Big thank you to Bookouture for being the book fairy godmother and granting my wish so that I could read the book in time for publication day!
I’m not too sure whether I’m becoming pickier regarding the books I now read, or whether I need to regroup where psychological thrillers are concerned, because I seem to be sitting on the fence for a lot of them to begin with. Now, seeing as it takes a little while for my mind to conjure up an opinion of the storyline, I don’t necessarily see that as a bad thing when I do find myself lagging behind on the fence, waiting for the pace to pick up. ‘The Millionaire’s Wife’ was no exception as, to begin with, I was rather unsure on what I was reading. However, after a couple of chapters of too-ing and fro-ing with my opinion, all of a sudden the storyline catapulted into grit and my eyes were glued to the page.
Anna Blackwell is holding on to multiple skeletons in her closet, whilst trying to move on with her life with her husband Will. As far as she is concerned, the past is gone and is no longer a threat to Anna’s new life. Unfortunately for Anna, her past is certainly not forgotten and, with one small detail brought to Anna’s attention, that fact was cemented straight away. Should she tell Will what is going on? Or should she wait to see whether the past goes through with the threat?
Oh my gosh! I am so glad that I continued to read ‘The Millionaire’s Wife’ as it just kept on delivering shock after shock every time I turned the page. One moment life was all rosy for Anna and Will, the next moment their lives are hanging by a thread. Literally. When the truth came out and Anna was made aware of just who was involved in certain events, it sent multiple shivers up my spine. It just goes to show that sometimes people really can be wolves in sheep clothing.
The energy felt throughout this book was like a lightening bolt. I couldn’t keep up with the shocks the author was intent on delivering, nor could I keep up on the attacks that were flying in Anna’s direction.
What started off, in my opinion, as a slow burning read, ending up being an absolute firecracker of a book which gripped me from head to toe. Never mind this book being about a millionaire’s wife, I feel like a millionaire just by being able to read it!
