Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you having a fab weekend whatever you’re up to!  Today, I’m thrilled to be hosting a stop on the blog tour for Sue Fortin’s The Dead Wife.

Many thanks to Rachel Gilbey for inviting me on the blog tour and to One More Chapter for my e-copy of The Dead Wife which I received through Netgalley.

The Blurb


Police have ruled out suspicious circumstances in the investigation into the death of Elizabeth Sinclair, wife of charismatic entrepreneur Harry Sinclair, found drowned in the lake of the family’s holiday park. 

It’s been two years since the Sinclair case closed but when reporter Steph Durham receives a tipoff that could give her the scoop of the year, she’s drawn deeper and deeper into the secretive Sinclair family.

Elizabeth’s death wasn’t a tragic accident. And the truth will come at a deadly price…

What Did I Think?

That opening chapter 😮😮😮 oh lordy!! What a chilling way to start a suspense packed tale. And what follows made me doubt everyone Steph met!  Steph may be a travel reporter by trade but she’s got that investigative instinct and tenacity that any journalist would be proud to have.

What are the Sinclairs hiding? Throughout the book I knew they had skeletons in the cupboard but as to what the deep dark secrets were I was flummoxed and had to keep reading as Steph continued to poke and prod for information.   I didn’t know what to make of the family.  The three brothers were each so different but had each other’s backs. They don’t seem to take too kindly to outsiders particularly ones who ask awkward questions.

I really enjoyed the time jumps between chapters.  The chapters from Elizabeth’s life gradually unveiled some of the secrets of the Sinclair family but it wasn’t until the climax that the full picture is revealed.  And oh my what a climax!! Steph prodded the proverbial hornet’s nest once too often!! Would she pay the ultimate price for asking too many questions? But one thing is for sure, blood is definitely thicker than water!

Sue Fortin has created a tense thriller where anything could happen and anyone could be that shadow in the dark who is stalking Steph and sent Elizabeth to a watery grave. I’ve read some of Ms Fortin’s books in the past but The Dead Wife is darker than what I’ve read before and I liked it! I’ll be looking up some of the author’s books that I’ve been missing!
