The Millionaire’s Wife by Shalini Boland #BookReview @Bookouture @ShaliniBoland

About this book…

Everyone has their secrets. But this one could destroy your marriage.

When Anna Blackwell opens an email from an unknown sender, the shocking image attached shatters her perfect world. A woman has been killed. And Anna knows who did it. The past is catching up with her.

Is it her turn next?

To protect herself and her husband Will, she must tell him the terrible truth about her first love. But as the secrets of her life unravel, Anna begins to realise that she is not the only one who has been living a lie.

Anna doesn’t know who to turn to: her best friend, her parents, her husband. But she knows that her ex-lover is dangerous and she must stop him, before it’s too late…

My review…

I love Shalini Boland’s books and this one didn’t disappoint! I got into them when they were recommended to me by a lovely lady called Gail Shaw (who is a huge fan!) and I have to say thank you to her for introducing me to this fabulous author. The Millionaire’s Wife was originally self published but has now been republished by Bookouture.

I was hooked by the plot and by character of Anna from the very beginning when we first meet her celebrating with her husband at his birthday party. Anna and Will live an enviable lifestyle with gifts to each other that others can only dream about. But what is their connection to the terrible death of the woman in the prologue? When Anna is sent a picture and threatening message, it looks like her past might be about to catch up with her. Is she next?

Wow! What a brilliant and involving thriller this was! I absolutely love it when there are multiple shocks coming at me whilst reading and The Millionaire’s Wife had some fabulous twists that were not only unexpected but also they just kept on coming! I never really knew where the story was heading or who to trust and therefore I flew through it desperate to find out the truth. This is a very easy to pick up but impossible to put down book that manages to make your surroundings completely disappear as you become entranced by its shocking narrative.  The flashbacks to Anna’s time in school  worked well in developing her character and, even though her naivety frustrated me at times, it was easy to see why she was that way when given more background information about her early life.

If you’re a fan of Shalini Boland or of gripping psychological thrillers, then this book is a must read for you. I thoroughly enjoyed it’s fast paced, stylish delivery and jaw dropping reveals. And I can’t wait to read her next book, The Silent Sister, which is out in July and available to preorder now!!

The Millionaire’s Wife: An absolutely gripping psychological thriller is available to purchase now from Amazon UK (affiliates link) My review copy came from the publisher via netgalley.
