Three Single Wives

“[A] divinely original thriller. . . a wonderful carousel of revolving suspects, motives, and means, and many people to love and to love to hate.”–Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review

An addictive second mystery novel about book clubs, murder, and the domestic secrets inside every household from the author of Pretty Guilty Women!

Three beautiful women. Two wedding bands. One dead husband.

When Anne Wilkes, Eliza Tate, and Penny Sands arrive at book club bearing bottles of wine, none of them are plotting to kill. But when the subject of a philandering husband arises, revenge is in the air. By the end of the night, someone is dead.

Two women with rings on their fingers and one with stars in her eyes. All of them are hiding something. All of them are lying.

What really happened that night? Only the guilty knows. Did one woman take everything too far, or is the truth really more twisted than fiction?

A domestic thriller that will keep you guessing, Three Single Wives is compelling mystery for book clubs that devoured Samantha Downing, Sandi Jones and Lucy Foley.
