Review: One in Three by Tess Stimson


Title: One in Three
Author: Tess Stimson
Published: January 2021, Avon
Format: Paperback, 448 pages
Source: Publisher

Both of them loved him. One of them killed him . . .

Louise has had to watch her husband, Andrew, start a new family in the four years since he left her. The ‘other woman’ is now his wife – but Louise isn’t ready to let Caz enjoy the life that was once hers, or to let go of the man she still loves.

As Louise starts to dig into Caz’s past, the two women’s pretence of civility starts to slip. But in trying to undermine each other, they discover more about the man they both married.

And when Andrew is murdered at a family party, both women are found standing over the body.

And when Andrew is murdered during the anniversary celebrations, both women are found standing over the body.

It’s always the wife. But which one?


My thoughts:  This is the second book I've read by Tess Stimson and she is quickly becoming a favorite author. She writes such addicting, twisted psychological thrillers and I just love them!

This book is a fast-paced, dark read that grabs you right away. We find out in the very opening chapter that someone has murdered Andrew. And then we go back and find out what has led to the murder. And interspersed throughout all this are the police transcripts. I loved this format because it gave just a little more each time and kept you guessing as to where things were going.

This book really kept me on my toes all the way through. The characters are so well-developed and while I didn't particularly care for any of them, it was a case of needing to see how things played out. I needed to know who did it and let me tell you - I never came close to guessing. I love when that happens. I love catty women and this one takes the cake. This is just pure fun at times and really had me going back and forth each time something new happened. I never knew who to trust and it makes for such an unsettling read at times.

If you are looking for an entertaining, gripping read, I highly recommend picking this one up. I definitely have Tess Stimson on my list of must-read authors and will be eagerly awaiting her next thriller!
