Here's what readers are saying about TWO WIDOWS...


Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars

Two Widows is brilliant! I thought I had the plot figured out and then boom! I’ll meekly admit I didn’t have the plot figured, turns out I had nothing figured! Lots of red herrings but overall this is a clever story of friendship, loss and darkness. I read in two sittings because Two Widows was perfection! Don’t waste your time reading reviews, just pick it up and read it! I promise you won’t regret it.


NetGalley Reviewer, 5 stars

An atmospheric psychological thriller with two strong female leads… A taut mystery that explores loneliness and female companionship.  I found myself gasping from breath as this book hurdled toward a terrifying conclusion.  How well do we really know anyone?


Books Read by Prairie Girl, 5 stars

Two Widows has many twists and turns to the plot…  This book kept my attention. I had to keep reading without breaks so I knew what happened.


Little Miss Book Lover 87, 5 stars

Wow. I had absolutely no idea I would love this book as much as I have. I really haven't been able to put this one down. I have been gripped from the very first page and found that I have very quickly devoured this book in just one sitting. This book is completely unpredictable and I have been kept guessing from the very beginning of this one. I haven't been able to work out where the author would take this story. This is completely different to anything I have read previously and I have been completely gripped by the author's writing style. I have felt as though I have been right there with the characters and the scene has been portrayed clearly. I can honestly say that I am definitely a fan of this author after reading this book. I haven't been able to put it down. This is most definitely a five-star read.
