The Replacement Wife by Darby Kane
About The Book
Elisa Wright is a mom and wife, living a nice, quiet life in a nice, quiet town. She’s also convinced her brother-in-law is a murderer. Josh has one dead wife and one missing fiancée, and though he grieved for them he starts dating someone new. Elisa fears for that woman’s safety, and she desperately wants to know what happened to her friend, Josh’s missing fiancée.
Searching for clues means investigating her own family. And she doesn’t like what she finds. A laptop filled with incriminating information. Other women.
But when Elisa becomes friends with Josh’s new girlfriend and starts to question things she thinks are true, Elisa wonders if the memories of a horrible incident a year ago have finally pushed her over the edge and Josh is really innocent. With so much at stake, Elisa fights off panic attacks and a strange illness. Is it a breakdown or something more? The race is on to get to the truth before another disappearance because there’s a killer in the family…or is there?
What would you do if you suspect that your brother-in-law is a serial killer? Go to the police? Investigate by yourself? Let it go?
I think that as soon as our main character, Elisa Wright, starts suspecting that her best friend is missing and her brother-in-law had something to do with it, she couldn’t stay away from it. She is a brave woman, but recently was present in a shooting and still has nightmares from it. So, this story will be torn between the possibility that Josh is a killer or that all the pills that Elisa is taking from her nightmares are blurring her rationality.
I have to say that I didn’t have any doubt during the plot that something happened to Elisa’s friend, it’s too much of a coincidence that the Josh’s two previous wives are dead and the next fiancée missing, the only question is who did it. And who is trying to make Elisa crazy now…
This is a story to keep you guessing, you can have your own thoughts since the beginning but you keep turning pages to know if you are right.
This is a quick read, easy to read in one stand and to put your detective skills to work. There are different subplots involved in the story, but only sketches, you can’t see the full picture, I would have loved to know more about the shooting or Josh’s past.
If you are looking for a psychological thriller to keep you entertained for a few hours, this is your read.
