  • Page turner

    "... what defines us? Is it the lies we tell ...or the secrets we keep? " "Maybe the question should be : which is worse?" These quotes from the prologue had me hooked. Its not just a book about secrets or lies, it is what we do with them. The Wife's Choice is also about realizing the choices you make, always have consequences , its about realizing who you really are . There was a lot of strong women in this book and I hope to be that wise one day. It is the story of Alys , her daughter and husband. One secret will change their lives. The Wife' Choice leaves you in a I can do this too , feel good mood. Thanks to Net Galley and Bookouture for the opportunity to read this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Unexpected

    From the blurb I presumed Alys, the wife, was keeping a secret from everyone and of her own volition however the uncomfortable reality is that much of her life and choices have been controlled by her husband Hugh. Although this isn’t an overly upbeat story I really enjoyed the dawning realisations in Alys’s thoughts about the realities of her relationship and there is a positivity to it.

  • Just Wonderful!

    This, my second novel by the gifted author Emma Davies, was as absorbing and exhilarating as I was expecting it to be. In The Wife's Choice the reader is privy to an intriguing and thought-provoking, if short, prologue that grabbed my attention in immediately. I was introduced to Alys, living with her second husband, Hugh and their daughter, Esme. Alys feels that she should be happy, but instead, she is discontent and sleepwalking her way through life. She used to be Sam's wife, until he had a terrible car accident that left him fighting for his life, resulting in an eventual split between him and Alys for reasons that she could never fathom. As Alys struggles with life's many challenges, a chance meeting forces her past and present lives on a direct collision course... The Wife's Choice is a cracking story with a comfortably-paced plot, together with oodles of drama. A domestic tale of secrets, hopes, family tension and life's turmoil, no one made it through unscathed and its unpredictability made it all the more interesting. The chapters were succinct and concise, and I read this engrossing story in one sitting. The author's writing is addictive and her novels are very strong, and cleverly written. With its wonderful depth and emotion, I highly recommend The Wife's Choice to fans of Emma Davies or to anyone who gets a buzz from the genre. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • There's a finalize between secrets and lies!

    The Wife's Choice tells the story of Alys, a woman who has not had the chance to make many choices. She married Sam Walker, a chef who dreamed of opening his own restaurant. After a devastating car crash left him disfigured and with a permanent link, he ended their marriage. Alys abandoned her dream of becoming a textile conservator and took a dead end job at a department store, married the owner Hugh Robinson, and raised their daughter Esme. Now, twenty years later, aspiring chef Esme is hired to work for famous restaurant The Green Room. The restaurant is owned by Nancy and she and Alys become friends. Then she introduces Alys to her husband Tom who is…Sam. And now, Alys’ carefully organized world turns upside down. There’s a very fine line between secrets and lies” reads the first sentence in The Wife’s Choice. Alys, Hugh, Nancy and Sam are all hiding secrets and it is not until the very end of this book that all are revealed and Alys has made some interesting choices. Reading The Wife's Choice is a guilty pleasure. It’s full of love, drama, jealousy and ambition with yummy descriptions of food thrown in. I loved it. 5 stars. Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Emma Davies for this ARC.

  • So much more than I ever expected.

    I received an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review. Reading what the book was about, it was different and I thought about it and decided to read it. I am glad I did because the story was good but there is so much to see while reading. It is about life, the choices one makes but sometimes the choices are made by someone else and there is nothing you can do about it. You have to go through in your journey and this is what is happening. Alys thought she had moved on and had created a wonderful life for herself. But the day came, that people associated with her past appeared in her life once again but she didn't realize it at the time. She had a woman who saw her worth and saw the amazing dress she had made for her sister-in-law for her engagement party but hadn't taken any credit for it. The woman was encouraging her to see her value. I know the blurb doesn't tell you this and I might of read it for the way it was meant for me to read it, but it was nice to read about a woman encouraging other women, I also see by reading the book why my husband does some of the things he says and does. My honest review is, this wasn't the book I was expecting to read, it was so much more.

    Thanks for your feedback!
