    Thanks to Net Galley I was able to receive an advanced copy of this exciting thriller. It did not disappoint! I read it in just under 24 hours, literally I had a hard time putting it down.

    An engrossing read

    The Stranger's Wife is the third book in the Detective Dan Riley series but this can be easily read as a stand-alone. As far as a domestic thriller goes, this book gets it just right. With an engrossing storyline, some compelling characters and a clever ending, this is one of the well-written thrillers out there. This is a story about two very different women, Beth and Cath. Beth is wealthy and having an affair with a man who gives her the kind of love that her cold, detached husband does not. Cath is poor with a violently abusive husband. Both are suffering at the hands of their partners, who would rather see her dead than divorce them. By pure coincidence, Beth and Cath are about to meet and discover they share one shocking thing in common. The story is told by Beth, Cath and Dan's points of view. The pace is fast and the story has several twists and turns to keep you guessing. The novel deals with domestic violence (not just physical but emotional and psychological too) and abusive husbands and accurately portrays the helplessness of living in abusive relationships. The portrayal gets too dark at times and some may find it disturbing (trigger warning). I liked the main characters of Beth & Cath. This book covers a fair amount of Detective Dan Riley’s personal life but having not read this series before, I couldn’t relate much to Dan’s character. The story is more focused on Beth’s story than Cath. I loved the buildup towards the climax which explained the motivations for each character. The biggest problem for me, however, was that the main twist is rather predictable and it isn’t an entirely original concept. Around 50% mark, you have a fair idea of where the story is going and the main mystery. That being said, it’s how the story progresses is what makes you keep reading. The story raises a lot of relevant questions about law vs morality, the failure of the legal system to dispense justice and the failure of society to protect the weak. Overall, this is a well written and absorbing story. Although it feels a bit repetitive at times, the fast pace and some good characters, make it an interesting read. If you like reading domestic thrillers, you will enjoy this.

    Wonderful psychological thriller!

    The Stranger's Wife is the 3rd book in the Dan Riley trilogy. Similar to the previous two in the series, it begins with intrigue and a trail of murders that seem almost impossible to solve. This case involves two women with very different lives. One woman is the soccer mom with a good job, successful husband and big house. The other woman could be her opposite, living in filth with an abusive boyfriend who will undoubtedly kill her one day. However, in a chance meeting they seem to have more in common than can be believed. Add to this a group of influential who want to keep the case from being solved, and Dan off the case, and it makes for a page turner. The Stranger's Wife is a psychological thriller that is impossible to put down. In fact, I stayed up very late one night since I just couldn't put it down. If you like cop dramas and psychological thrillers, consider picking this one up.

    Loved!!!!!

    Wow, wow, wow, what a fantastic read this was. What an ending that was. This was my first book by this author and I loved it. It was a stand alone novel. This book was about two women lives that will forever change by a chance meeting. Both of these women are very broken and worn down and don’t know how they are going to make it to another day. But something changes for the better and in the end they both end up getting what they want, a fresh start. I want to start off by saying that this was a fast and amazing read. All the characters meshed so well together and kept the flow of the book going. I will admit though that I did not like Detective Dan that much at the very beginning but by the end I did see a much softer, sweeter side of him that I grew to love. The plot of this book is what kept me going. I never knew which way the book was going to take me. Each chapter was like a new adventure and I looked forward to reading the next. I could not put this one down. There were so many twists and turns that I felt like I was riding a roller coaster. I highly recommend this book. Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
