The Other Widow: A Novel
The Other Widow by Susan Crawford is an enticing thriller that sucked me right into the novel. Three different women are introduced to readers. One is an actress who is married and was with her other lover when both of them were sent off the icy road. Then, there’s Karen…her husband died and she’s struggling with the nagging feeling that someone is watching her from afar. Karens knows her husband was unfaithful…but does that give her a motive…and last there’s the female officer with PTSD who lands the case of Joe’s car accident that looks a lot more like a murder. This story kept me turning the pages in a rush to find out who was the killer and why. So many lives are brilliantly tangled up in this exciting thriller.
The Other Widow made me feel like I was there experiencing the whole thing from beginning to end. The car accident to theft, to spying and even more danger, had me sitting on the edge of my chair waiting in anticipation wondering who was next and when…Danger, death, and suspicion hang thickly in the air. I never knew what to fully expect until it happened. The story brought me deep into the affairs, marriage and details of the characters. I felt chills going down my spine with every page.
Susan Crawford is a talented writer that makes an intense and deeply satisfying novel in The Other Widow. A bad situation can reveal the true colors of a person. And when that happens, everything you thought you knew about them becomes suspect. Entertaining, suspenseful, and absolutely frightening, The Other Widow is definitely a must read for audiences everywhere.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
