This is a well done exploration of abuse. The ending is messy. ( )

The Wife before Me. Laura Elliot. 2018. The blurb: “A twisty, gripping psychological thriller.” “Twisty” it is, but it is also almost immediately, predictable. And you know that Nicholas Madison is the villain. Elena meets him at her mother’s funeral. Since her mother worked at Nicholas’ financial firm, Elena seems to run into him accidentally as she is settling the estate. The accidental meetings turn into dates and she learn that Nicholas’ first wife died when her car veers off the road, even though her body is never found. Elena marries him and moves into the house he shared with Amelia. He turns into Mrs. Danvers in Rebecca, and also becomes mean and brutal. He always blames it on his grief and on the fact that Elena wants him to talk about Amelia. He becomes more and more controlling and violent, and Elena begins to doubt herself and withdraw from her friends. She eventually tries to kill him and is arrested. Then the novel switches to Amelia and find out how her marriage was to him. Nicolas is a classic psychotic abuser and is eventually brought to justice. It is his violence, psychological, physical and sexual is vividly described ( )

Please see all of my reviews on my blog at www.robinlovesreading.blogspot.com

Amelia Madison goes on a drive and never returns. On a dangerous incline, her car slips off of a cliff and plunges into the sea. It is now two years later, and Elena Langdon meets Amelia's husband Nicholas. It is Elena's mother's funeral and Nicholas is there as he worked with her mother. They are both grieving and yet they make a connection.

Over time, the two develop a bond, and eventually begin to live together. She is most assuredly in love with him and he claims to love her as well. However, he begins to exhibit increasingly cruel and dangerous sides to his personality, placing her very life in danger more than once. At some point, Elena begins to wonder what really happened to Amelia. Was Nicholas as cruel to Amelia as he is to Elena? Was Amelia's death an accident?

When Elena discovers a torn letter it sends incredible chills through her bones. Everything changes and she begins looking for answers. Even so, it is very difficult for her to prove just how dangerous Nicholas truly is. However, what she discovers is shocking beyond belief, plunging her into even more terror than she could have ever imagined.

I sometimes don't know who experienced more shock, Elena, Amelia or myself, the reader. I then found myself dealing with powerful emotions towards or against certain characters in this book, namely Nicholas, his mother, and even his father. This was a truly emotional read and I give kudos to the author for evoking such powerful responses in me while reading this book.

When I picked The Wife Before Me for review, I know since it was in my genre of choice, that it would most likely be a good read. It was far more than that - it was an utterly exceptional read. For starters, there were twists and turns that had me gasping for air and I just could not turn the page fast enough. I found myself devouring this book in just two sittings, pausing only enough for a scant few hours of sleep before continuing on, yes, in just two brief sittings. From the first page to the very last page, I was completely riveted. This is my first book by Laura Elliot and I know for a solid fact that she will be a definite auto-buy for me. Her writing is concise, her characters memorable and the plot lines believable.

Thank you to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion. ( )

It gets better as you read

I was ready to put it down after 5 chapters or so, but then the story got increasingly deeper and kept me wanting to read more. A little odd ending, but I’m ok with it ( )

His first wife drowned in a seemingly freak accident and now he has a new wife!

Told in two parts, past and present, past - Amelia and present Elena, this brilliant psychological thriller is a terrifying story of domestic violence, fear and what someone people are really capable of.

What starts as two people coming together in shared grief, Nick who seems like a loving and caring man recovering from the tragic loss of his first wife Amelia, and Elena who is grieving for her mother, fall in love and live is now more bearable now they have each other. And then things start to change!

This is a brilliant twisty suspenseful thriller full of some truly surprising twists and turns. I was hooked from the start and literally kept reading ..... all day! Unable to stop reading it until the very end.

This genuinely is a "keep you on the edge of your seat" read! I loved it and I have no hesitation at all in recommending it to anyone!

Many thanks to the author Laura Elliot, publishers Bookouture and NetGalley for my copy in exchange for an honest, independent review. ( )
