Review: The Widow by Fiona Barton

When the police started asking questions, Jean Taylor turned into a different woman. One who enabled her and her husband to carry on, when more bad things began to happen...

But that woman’s husband died last week. And Jean doesn’t have to be her anymore.

There’s a lot Jean hasn’t said over the years about the crime her husband was suspected of committing. She was too busy being the perfect wife, standing by her man while living with the accusing glares and the anonymous harassment.

Now there’s no reason to stay quiet. There are people who want to hear her story. They want to know what it was like living with that man. She can tell them that there were secrets. There always are in a marriage.

The truth—that’s all anyone wants. But the one lesson Jean has learned in the last few years is that she can make people believe anything…

**** 4 Star Review ****

Fiona's debut novel has definitely spoke volumes on how well her brain is able to spin such a spell-binding, page-turning story. I am itching to pick up her next book.

This book is full of doubt, deceit and twists that left my jaw hanging open. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I needed to know the depths of deception. I needed to know who was guilty. I needed Jean to finally stand up for herself.

This is definitely a must read for those of you who are thriller junkies like me. This book is more than deserving of all of the rave reviews it has received since it was released.
