The Widow by KL Slater - Book Review

Book Description

My husband was not a monster. No matter what they say…

The day my husband, Michael, stepped in front of a lorry after being questioned by the police, my world fell apart. He was devoted to me and our six-year-old daughter. But they’d connected him to the disappearance of a young mother from our tiny village.

Now I stand at Michael’s funeral, clutching my little girl’s hand, with tears in my eyes as I insist to all our friends that he died an innocent man. Yet the questions have started, and nothing I say will stop them digging for the truth.

But none of them can read the secrets in my heart, or know about the phone I found hidden in his toolbox…

I’m determined that my daughter will not remember her father as a monster. I will erase any hint of wrongdoing in this house whatever the cost.

Because to keep my daughter safe, the last thing I need is for people to start looking at me…

What I Thought

Wow what a book! It’s still going through my head now!

The Widow is jammed packed with twists. You will be going through each character thinking whodunnit. I didn’t get it until the end! It’s one of my favourite KL Slater books, I’ve decided. The characters are fantastic, well developed and intriging. It’s also really great to see characters from the Polish community entwined in the story. A lovely touch!

The setting is very atmospheric and village community-based. Everyone knows everything and talks about each other behind their backs. It’s eerie, tantalising and you find yourself treating everyone as a suspect! Fantastically written and one book that is impossible to put down!

Thanks again KL Slater for a cracker of a psychological thriller!

Rating: 5 out of 5.
