The Good Widow

Summary: Bestselling authors Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke make their suspense debut in this twisty, emotional thriller.

Elementary school teacher Jacqueline “Jacks” Morales’s marriage was far from perfect, but even in its ups and downs it was predictable, familiar. Or at least she thought it was…until two police officers showed up at her door with devastating news. Her husband of eight years, the one who should have been on a business trip to Kansas, had suffered a fatal car accident in Hawaii. And he wasn’t alone.

For Jacks, laying her husband to rest was hard. But it was even harder to think that his final moments belonged to another woman—one who had left behind her own grieving and bewildered fiancé. Nick, just as blindsided by the affair, wants answers. So he suggests that he and Jacks search for the truth together, retracing the doomed lovers’ last days in paradise.

Now, following the twisting path of that fateful road, Jacks is learning that nothing is ever as it seems. Not her marriage. Not her husband. And most certainly not his death…


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

This is actually my first Liz and Lisa book- even though I’ve met them a couple times at Book Expo (here we are with The Good Widow) and I have been so eager to see how they do with a suspense novel!

What I liked:

Jacks. First, I loved her nickname. Then I loved how she handled the whole situation of finding out your hubby is cheating on you. Sure she fell apart at times- but she HANDLED it like a boss when it mattered. And came out stronger.

Maui. The setting for the book- I could taste the drinks, see the sunsets. Liz and Lisa nailed descriptions!

The twists. This book would have been a bit boring had it just been a “my husband cheated on me and now he’s dead” book. Some twists were subtle and some were a bit more dramatic. Loved them all.


Bottom line: I’ve heard other people rave about Liz and Lisa books and while I can’t vouch for them- I can say that the double L’s wear the title of suspense authors very well.
