The Wife Stalker

Summary: The bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish returns with a psychological thriller, filled with chilling serpentine twists, about a woman fighting to hold onto the only family she’s ever loved—and how far she’ll go to preserve it.

Breezing into the tony seaside paradise of Westport, Connecticut, gorgeous thirtysomething Piper Reynard sets down roots, opening a rehab and wellness space and joining a local yacht club. When she meets Leo Drakos, a handsome, successful lawyer, the wedding ring on his finger is the only thing she doesn’t like about him. Yet as Piper well knows, no marriage is permanent.

Meanwhile, Joanna has been waiting patiently for Leo, the charismatic man she fell in love with all those years ago, to re-emerge from the severe depression that has engulfed him. Though she’s thankful when Leo returns to his charming, energetic self, paying attention again to Evie and Stelli, the children they both love beyond measure, Joanna is shocked to discover that it’s not her loving support that’s sparked his renewed happiness—it’s something else.

Piper. Leo has fallen head over heels for the flaky, New Age-y newcomer, and unrepentant and resolute, he’s more than willing to leave her behind, along with everything they’ve built. Of course, he assures her, she can still see the children.

Joanna is devastated—and determined to find something, anything, to use against this woman who has stolen her life and her true love. As she digs deeper into Piper’s past, Joanna begins to unearth disturbing secrets…but when she confides to her therapist that she fears for the lives of her ex-husband and children, her concerns are dismissed as paranoia. Can she find the proof she needs in time to save them?

 

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I REALLY enjoyed The Last Mrs. Parrish, but The Last Time I Saw You was just ok and I wasn’t even going to check this book out till I saw that Julia Whelan was one of the narrators (I’m a sucker for a good JW book!)

 

What I Liked:

The cover! Loved it!

The two narrators. I was not familiar with Meghan Wolf, but how she narrated Piper made me feel about Piper all the ways the author wants you to feel about her. Julia Whelan could read the phone book and I would listen to it.

And a special part of the ending- I had to laugh so hard. But if I tell you any more- you’ll know the twists to this book.

 

Overall, this book was not bad. It was even enjoyable at times. But this was no The Last Mrs. Parrish- it was just a decent book with some great narrators.

 

Bottom line: Borrow from a friend, wait for a Kindle deal, or check out from the library. Readable, but not OMG YOU GOTTA READ.
