The Younger Wife

I read this book in one day while I was sick! I am a big fan of Sally Hepworth. I’ve read two of her books so far (The Mother-in-Law and The Good Sister). She writes books that are thrillers/suspense… but also, strangely heartwarming? And this was no exception… I just loved it! The book opens with sisters Tully and Rachel Aston meeting their father’s much younger (younger than them) new fiancĂ©. The women are naturally upset, seeing her as an interloper who is clearly just a gold digger. Meanwhile, their father Stephen is perfect. The golden heart surgeon that everyone loves. The only thing is, he has to divorce his current wife, suffering from dementia. And then there is Heather, the new fiancĂ©… she has secrets of her own! I am not telling you much about the plot as I don’t want to give you any spoilers, but I really liked this. I will say that there are trigger warnings for domestic abuse and alcoholism.
