Book Review

(by- Linda )

I'm very much invested in today's politics and love that The Senator's Wife takes place in Washington, D.C. It's not a stretch of the imagination to believe that this story's secrets, corruption, and especially scandals are happening today. It adds another layer of intrigue and interest, especially with all that is happening in today's politics.

My favorite character was Sloane, but she's easy to like. She's a woman living her dream life, a Senator's wife, well-respected in the D.C. political arena, and running a shelter for battered women. Her only problems seem to be her Lupus and her trusting nature. Unfortunately, these create the perfect atmosphere for family drama and many questions as her health and life slide downhill. As for the other characters, they played their parts well, casting plenty of doubt but not quite enough to completely confirm your suspicions.

And finally, I also liked seeing multiple points of view rather than a single perspective - it added depth and triggered additional questions.

This book is a page-turner, expertly plotted and well thought out; it pulls you in and keeps you guessing until the end.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Penguin Random House for the complimentary copy of this book.
