New Murder Mystery by Lauren Willig, Coming 1/9/18!

 

The English Wife is a perfect blend of love, betrayal, and murder. Mr. and Mrs. Bayard Van Duyvil lived a quiet life in New York. Bayard was a wealthy businessman, and Annabelle was a refined woman from England.

The mystery began when Bayard was found stabbed at his mother’s home. Law enforcement was leaning towards a double murder crime investigation. The rumor was that Annabelle was having an affair, with the architect. The same architect whom Bayard had hired, to build Annabelle her dream house. All the facts were not in, but most people were of the opinion that Bayard had murdered his wife in a jealous rage, and then turned the knife on himself. Although Annabelle’s body had not yet been found, evidence suggests, that she might have been drowned. Bayard’s sister, Janie, however, could not fathom the thought of her brother killing anyone, including himself. Either Janie truly didn’t know her brother at all, or something was seriously amiss.

Janie was determined to uncover the truth about her brother’s death. And, if she had to make a deal with the devil to untangle the lies and discover the true facts of what happened, then so be it.

The English Wife is a complex mystery with numerous surprises. There are many twisted players in this book, with their true natures, and intentions, well-hidden. Although this book is compelling and intriguing, I did find it confusing at times. All in all, though, it’s a great read.

Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
