From Michele Campbell, the bestselling author of It's Always the Husband comes a new blockbuster thriller in The Wife Who Knew Too Much.

Tabitha Girard had her heart broken years ago by Connor Ford. He was preppy and handsome. She was a pool girl at his country club. Their affair should have been a summer fling. But it meant everything to Tabitha.

Years later, Connor comes back into Tabitha's life—older, richer, and desperately unhappy. He married for money, a wealthy, neurotic, controlling woman whom he never loved. He has always loved Tabitha.

When Connor’s wife Nina takes her own life, he’s free. He can finally be with Tabitha. Nina’s home, Windswept, can be theirs. It seems to be a perfect ending to a fairy tale romance that began so many years ago. But then, Tabitha finds a diary. "I’m writing this to raise an alarm in the event of my untimely death," it begins. “If I die unexpectedly, it was foul play, and Connor was behind it. Connor—and her.”

Who is Connor Ford? Why did he marry Nina? Is Tabitha his true love, or a convenient affair? As the police investigate Nina’s death, is she a convenient suspect?

As Tabitha is drawn deeper into the dark glamour of a life she is ill-prepared for, it becomes clear to her that what a wife knows can kill her.

My thoughts:  Michele Campbell is becoming a go-to for the ultimate summer popcorn thriller. Her books are so twisty and addicting that you just can't help but read in one or two sittings and this latest one is no exception!

This book hooked me right from the beginning and it never really let up. The characters draw you in and while you might not love them all - there are definitely those love to hate kinds of characters here - you can't help but become consumed with them as you become invested with what is going on. I also found I wasn't sure who I could trust - everyone seems to be hiding something.

I always love a good obsession story and this one takes the cake! It had so many different twists to it, my mind was spinning. Every time I thought I had things worked out, something new would be revealed. This is definitely a book where nothing and no one is as it seems and it really keeps you guessing. 

This book is one that will totally consume you once you start reading it. You will be desperate to know what really happened to Nina  - that journal entry alone was pure brilliance! - and even though it's a crazy read, you won't be able to put it down until you get to that last page! I definitely recommend adding this book to your summer reading's such a fun, addicting read.
