My Review
The Guilty Wife is a thriller with a twist at the end that will leave readers shocked. 
The story follows Frankie, a woman still grieving the death of her brother twenty years after it happened. Her life hasn't really been the same since that fateful night, and now, with the anniversary of his death nearing, things have started happening, and Frankie needs to try and figure out who is behind it all, before it's too late.
I will admit, I did find the story a little hard to get into at first. It started off a little slow, but after a certain point, things got interesting, and it was easy to fly through the pages, trying to figure out what was going on, who was doing things to Frankie, and why. I definitely didn't suspect the twist there at the end, though.
Told in alternating timelines, we get a glimpse of Frankie's past, when she was a teenager, and everything leading up to her brother's death. We also follow Frankie as she slogs through her life now, in her thirties with two kids, a husband who seems disinterested, and a new job with a boss who Frankie finds herself attracted to. 
Eventually, everything clashes, and when her past catches up to her in the present, Frankie has to fight to save herself and her family.
If you're a fan of thrillers, you'll want to check out The Guilty Wife. 
3.5 stars from me.
