ABOUT THE BOOK:
‘Of the four of them, only three remained. And there was no going backwards from there.’
Emily and Josephine have always shared everything. They’re sisters, flatmates, and best friends. It’s the two of them against the world.
When Emily has the perfect wedding, and Josephine finds the perfect man, they know things will change forever. But nothing can prepare them for what, or who, one of them is willing to give up for love.
Four people. Three couples. Two sisters. One unforgiveable betrayal.
From the best-selling author of Missing Pieces comes a heart-wrenching story about family, loyalty, and obsession that will have you racing to the finish.
I’ve read Laura Pearson’s previous novel Missing Pieces, which I LOVED, so when I heard about her latest book Nobody’s Wife I was thrilled to begin reading it! I was not disappointed!
This novel is full of secrets, lies, deception, obsession, and the ultimate betrayal! What better recipe for an amazing book!? I cannot think of one and this book certainly did not disappoint. I loved this novel and all the shocking lies and betrayal.
Nobody’s Wife starts off at Emily’s wedding. She is about to get married to her fiance Michael. Currently, Emily and Michael share a flat with Emily’s sister Josephine. They are inseparable and close friends, but as soon as they are married the couple plan to move into Emily and Josephine’s family home that they grew up in. Josephine is unsure how she feels about them moving out leaving her feeling all alone in the flat. Josephine has met a man she has been dating for a short time, but hadn’t brought him to the wedding as the relationship is still fairly new but cannot wait to introduce her sister and her new husband to this man.
Eventually Josephine introduces Emily and Michael to her recent boyfriend Jack, and they all instantly click. They seem to really like Jack, and he likes them, and they all quickly form a friendship with one another. That is, until things change and not for the good. What unfolds is the ultimate in lies, betrayal and deception.
I really enjoyed the character development in this novel and the vast set of characters we are introduced to. I really enjoyed Michael’s character. Michael was a loving and doting husband who truly seemed to love and care for his wife Emily. He seemed like a fabulous man who any woman would be lucky to be with. I was not much of a fan of Jack. When we are first introduced to Jack I really liked his character. He seemed friendly and down to earth at first, but then as we get to know him more we learn that he is selfish and deceitful.
I found myself hooked to this addictive read from the very beginning. I loved how fast paced this novel was and found myself not wanting to put it down. I flew through this book as I wanted to always know what would happen next and before I knew it I was at the end of the novel. And wow!! What a shocking ending it was! Absolutely fabulous novel!
Relationships, friendships, marriage and sisterhood are all put to the test. Will they all be able to escape this spider web of relationships or will the betrayal, lies and deception be all of their undoing? Who will come out destroyed? Will either of them escape unscathed? You’ll have to read this highly addictive and immersive book to find out!
MY RATING: 5/5 stars
