The Third Wife by Lisa Jewell

Book Synopsis(via Goodreads):

In the early hours of an April morning, Maya stumbles into the path of an oncoming bus.

A tragic accident? Or suicide?

Her grief-stricken husband, Adrian, is determined to find out.

Maya had a job she enjoyed; she had friends. They'd been in love.

She even got on with his two previous wives and their children. In fact, they'd all been one big happy family.

But before long Adrian starts to identify the dark cracks in his perfect life.
Because everyone has secrets.
And secrets have consequences.
Some of which can be devastating.

This insomniac's opinion:

I love Lisa Jewell's writing and highly recommend her novel The House We Grew Up In. Her writing in this novel was impeccable, as always and was also compulsively readable. However, everything seemed far to tidied up at the end to leave me feeling as though it was a believable story. 


3.5 stars

Worth staying up all night to read?

It is highly readable, so maybe.
