  • Interesting Start to a new series

    3.5 stars The Next Widow by C.J. Lyons is the 1st in the Jericho & Wright mystery series. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Bookouture, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Series Information: DS Luka Jericho has been in violent crimes for over 10 years, and fought to remain on the streets.  He doesn't want a desk job. His team consists of  Ray Acevedo, Scott Kricheck and newcomer Naomi Harper. My Synopsis:   (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions) Dr. Leah Wright returns home after her shift in the ER ended at midnight, only to find her house in a shambles and blood everywhere.  Her husband Ian is dead, and her 6-year old daughter Emily is cowering under the bed, in shock. Leah's determination to keep her daughter safe is the only thing holding her together. Luka and his team are at odds as to motive.  Naomi is sure that the perpetrator is Leah, and is out to prove it.  Luka is not as sure, although as evidence mounts, even he thinks he may have been wrong. Meanwhile, Luka's own family is keeping him on his toes. My Opinions:    A number of years ago I read other books by this author, and although they were okay,  they didn't stay with me long.  This one just looked interesting, and I'm glad I chose it. The story grabs you from the first chapter, and remains interesting throughout.  Although there was more than enough fore-shadowing to allow me to figure out the perpetrator by the middle of the book, it was still good. I liked the both Luka and Leah, as their characters were deep, and interesting and likable.  I could have done without their families (in particular Ruby),  as the side-stories  for them weren't really needed.  As well, Emily's character grated on me (a little bit of a smart-a$$ for a 6 year old). Overall, it was pretty good, and I will definitely watch for the next in this series.

  • Gruesome Murder

    If you’ve never read a C.J.Lyons book before you are missing out. New series but same gripping suspense this author is known for. Leah is devastated by the murder of her husband and will do anything to protect her 6 year old daughter who was a witness. I hope in future books that Jericho who is the detective in charge of the investigation is a stronger lead. He kind of let everyone run over him. I did figure out who was behind everything before the end but it was still a good read. Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for the Arc for my honest opinion.

  • A heart pounding and edge of your seat thriller...

    The Next Widow is a heart pounding and edge of your seat thriller. Dr. Leah Wright returns home from a shift in the ER to find her front door open and a blood trail throughout the house. Following the blood, Leah finds her husband dead in their daughter's bedroom floor and her daughter balled up under the bed in shock. As the cops investigate, Leah quickly finds herself the leading suspect as she still finds herself under threat from an unknown source. Full of suspense, the story unfolds quickly and I could not find a stopping place to put the story down. The single minded determination of the police to look at Leah as the suspect had me wanting to scream as a mother must learn to protect herself and her child. Twisty and turning, the story keeps smacking you upside the head with some new development just when you think you have it all figured out. I really liked Leah but found myself wanting to smack Detective Luka Jericho with frustration and wondering how the team up will work out in the series to come. But you can betcha I will be reading the next book to find out. My voluntary, unbiased review is base upon a review copy from Netgalley.

  • You’ll wish it was just a nightmare!

    The Next Widow is an edge of your seat thriller. From the first page you are caught up in a nightmare that was supposed to be a special Valentine's Day celebration. Written by C. J. Lyons the story is told from different perspectives; the victims wife Dr. Emily, the killer, and Detective Luka Jericho. This was a case of extreme overkill by a seriously twisted killer and the detectives all tend to think it's the wife Dr. Emily who orchestrated it. Dr. Emily can only deal with their daughter's mental health as the six year old deals with what she saw and heard. What a great writer you felt the horror of the gruesome crime but also the unequaled love of a mother for her daughter and the gut instinct of a good detective who has a heart. I thank NetGalley, C. J. Lyons and Bookouture for allowing me to read this ARC. I highly recommend The Next Widow if you like this genre.

  • Fabulous First Instalment

    My first book by C.J. Lyons, who has written a number of other novels. The Next Widow marks the first in a new series featuring Detective Sergeant Luka Jericho and Dr Leah Wright. In this cracking opening instalment, the reader gets to meet the duo when Luka investigates after Leah's husband, Ian, is brutally murdered. Leah herself makes the horrific discovery but her horror is heightened when she realises that her daughter Emily witnessed the gruesome attack. As well as finding out who killed Ian, Luka must also figure out why the murderer left six-year-old Emily alive... before they strike again. This first book in what promises to be a marvellous series certainly caused some frissons for me! Firstly, I loved the author's well drawn characters. Luka Jericho carried a lot of emotional baggage and Leah Wright, for her part was Mrs Calm and Collected, ambitious and resilient, the level-headed person that everyone needs in a crisis. With its frenetic pace there was plenty of action, with certainly no room for tedium or boredom here. Set in rural Pennsylvania, the plot itself was fascinating and I revelled in the tension of the investigation, and the way everything was eventually brought together. The Next Widow was a quality police procedural, and one I confidently recommend. I shall be watching out for the next in the series and I'm immensely keen to see where the talented C.J. Lyons takes DS Luka Jericho and Dr Leah Wright next. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
