The Senator’s Wife

I had pre-ordered this and was so excited for it as Liv Constantine is one of my favorite author duos (“Liv” is actually a team of two sisters that write together). You probably know them from The Last Mrs. Parrish which I loved. The perfect can’t-put-it-down thriller. This one was really satisfying for me as I guessed the twist(s) pretty early on BUT they have such a great way of keeping you guessing that I second guessed myself the whole time. It was addicting? Two years ago, Whit and Sloane each lost their spouses in a tragic accident. Over the years they leaned on each other and now: they are married, and happily in love. Every day, Sloane pinches herself that she somehow managed to love two incredible men. Her life is pretty much perfect. But Sloane has some health issues: she needs a hip replacement and often experiences debilitating flares of lupus. When they decide to hire someone to help out with Sloane’s non-profit and also care for Sloane at home post-operation, Athena seems perfect. But as Athena cares for Sloane, Sloane just seems to get sicker and sicker, her lupus flare-ups getting worse and worse. Meanwhile, it seems that Athena and Whit have taken to each other. As Sloane gets sicker and sicker, it seems that something evil is at play. I loved this almost as much as I loved The Last Mrs. Parrish. It is fun and twisty and will keep you on your toes. It’s also the kind of book that you kind of just have to read in one sitting: I found that I could not stop reading!!!
