Pretty Little Wife

Summary: Debut author Darby Kane thrills with this twisty domestic suspense novel that asks one central question: shouldn’t a dead husband stay dead?

Lila Ridgefield lives in an idyllic college town, but not everything is what it seems. Lila isn’t what she seems.

A student vanished months ago. Now, Lila’s husband, Aaron, is also missing. At first these cases are treated as horrible coincidences until it’s discovered the student is really the third of three unexplained disappearances over the last few years. The police are desperate to find the connection, if there even is one. Little do they know they might be stumbling over only part of the truth…. With the small town in an uproar, everyone is worried about the whereabouts of their beloved high school teacher. Everyone except Lila, his wife.

She’s definitely confused about her missing husband but only because she was the last person to see his body, and now it’s gone.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I saw this book months ago on Amazon or maybe I got notice about it in an email about books you may like type thing. Anyway, the how doesn’t matter. And I added it to my TBR list. At the same time- I noticed my Audible credits were beginning to pile up (I had 4) and since I’m REALLY picky about my audio books (and Julia Whelan does not record nearly enough!) I decided to see who did the narration for Pretty Little Wife.

XE Sands, you are now another great narrator I can rely on. Thank you.


What I Liked:

The cover! I love it.

Lila and Jenny. 2 badass babes trying to negotiate what the other knows, suspects, did. The back and forth between these women characters kept me riveted (and entertained).

How pretty much each chapter ended with not a cliffhanger exactly- but something that made me want to say- just one more chapter. Also, each chapter was short (I think the longest chapter was 25 minutes long- after listening to Pretty Things, the short chapters were def a treat.


Bottom line: For a book about a murder, a podcast, and some characters that were icky AF- Lila also had some lines that would make me stop walking and just laugh for a minute. She had a wit about her that I not appreciated, but LOVED.
