Fantastic Debut: The Good Widow by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke

by Susan Roberts

I have read all of Liz's and Lisa's previous books and loved them all. This is their debut suspense novel and WOW is it fantastic. Clear your calendar before you open this book because you won't want to put it down until you read the last page.

The Good Widow
June 2017; Lake Union Publishing;
9781503943445; ebook, audio, print (300 pages)
suspense, women's fiction
Jacks and her husband have been married for 8 years - it's an ok marriage with what she thinks are normal problems that most people have. He travels as part of his job and is gone most of every week. Her life is pretty calm until the police show up at her door to tell her that her husband has died in a car accident in Hawaii. The problem is that he was supposed to be in Kansas, and he was with another woman when the accident occurred. The woman that he was with left behind her fiancĂ©- Nick - who was also stunned at what happened. To try to find out what happened in Hawaii, Jacks and Nick travel to Hawaii to trace the dead couple's last days. To say that things are never what they seem is putting it mildly!

I don't want to say any more about the plot because I don't want to give anything away but I will tell you that you are in for one fantastic read, and the last 25 pages will provide you with an ending that I never saw coming. Fantastic book by two wonderful authors!

About the book

Elementary school teacher Jacqueline “Jacks” Morales’s marriage was far from perfect, but even in its ups and downs it was predictable, familiar. Or at least she thought it was…until two police officers showed up at her door with devastating news. Her husband of eight years, the one who should have been on a business trip to Kansas, had suffered a fatal car accident in Hawaii. And he wasn’t alone.

For Jacks, laying her husband to rest was hard. But it was even harder to think that his final moments belonged to another woman—one who had left behind her own grieving and bewildered fiancĂ©. Nick, just as blindsided by the affair, wants answers. So he suggests that he and Jacks search for the truth together, retracing the doomed lovers’ last days in paradise.

Now, following the twisting path of that fateful road, Jacks is learning that nothing is ever as it seems. Not her marriage. Not her husband. And most certainly not his death…
