A New and Outstanding Gripping Novel by Kerry Fisher!
I Absolutely Loved This Book. Don’t Miss It!
The Silent Wife is a heart wrenching and gripping tale. I was hooked from the very first page. Kerry Fisher’s brilliant writing talent is showcased beautifully in this book. There are no filler pages. Each sentence moves the story forward. It’s exceedingly evident that every word in this book was thoroughly thought out and carefully placed, for maximum effect. Although this book is sure to, wreck havoc with your emotions, it will also warm your heart and make you laugh.
Maggie Parker came to the classy Farinelli family from a poor drug-infested section of town. She was the first in three generations of Parker women to nab a husband. Nico Farinelli wasn’t just any guy, though, he was a successful, kind, and handsome man. Nico loved Maggie’s sincere, honest, full-of-life manner. Anna, the matriarch of the Farinelli family, however, was nauseated by the fact that the Parker’s, were infiltrating her perfect Italian nest; especially Beryl, Maggie’s mother, a no-nonsense loving woman, with absolutely no filter.
Out of the two Farinelli brothers, Maggie’s husband, Nico was the quieter one. Massimo was a larger-than-life, center of the universe, charismatic, charmer type of guy. He was also his mother’s favorite. From the outside, the Farinelli’s appeared to be the perfect loving family. Maggie, however, knew that to be a falsehood. She accidentally discovered a terrible secret, one so awful that if it were ever exposed, would tear the Farinelli family apart. She struggled to protect the people she loved, but secrets have a way of being unearthed at the worse possible moments.
I highly recommend The Silent Wife. It’s an extraordinarily well-written book with many witty one-liners, realistic dialogue, and complex characters. This is the second 5-star novel that I have read by this talented writer. I love finding new favorite authors. I’ll be reading Kerry Fisher’s next book for sure.
Thank you so much Bookouture, and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
