The Perfect Widow - A.M. Castle || Blog Tour

A loving husband, Patrick. Two adorable children. A comfortable home.

 So when PC Becca Holt arrives to break the news that Patrick has been killed in an accident, she thinks Louise’s perfect world is about to collapse around her.  But Louise doesn’t react in the way Becca would expect her to on hearing of her husband’s death. And there are only three plates set out for dinner, as if Louise already knew Patrick wouldn’t be home that night…

 The more Becca digs, the more secrets she uncovers in the Bridges’ marriage – and the more she wonders just how far Louise would go to get what she wants…

 Is Louise a loving wife – or a cold-hearted killer?

It seems like Louise has the perfect life. Perfect husband, marriage & home, when Becca Holt has to do her first door knock, she finds it odd that Louise doesnt seem as shocked as she expected.

Becca just cant quite place what isnt right but there is something - however no one seems to believe her.
The Perfect Widow follows Louise from the moment she met him to the moment the news id delivered. We also learn about Becca who is investigating it without permission.

The Perfect Widow is gripping, it gives nothing aware the entire time you are reading, usually i get an inkling of where the narrative is going. This doesn't - i really had to read until the very last page to get answers as i had spent the whole time trying to figure out who we could trust.

I loved this, it really did hook me & i enjoyed not been able to grasp this, i find the characters hard to read and i didnt trust them, i felt there was something dishonest about them and that is what worked for me.

Overall this was a steady paced, the pace wasnt over the top fast, it was more a slow & steady burner that unfolded before the reader before concluding at the very end, you got the conclusion & bam - ended.
