From Michele Campbell, the bestselling author of It's Always the Husband comes a new blockbuster thriller in The Wife Who Knew Too Much.
Meet the first Mrs. Ford
Wealthy beyond imagination.
Married to a much younger man.
And now, she’s dead.
Meet the second Mrs. Ford.
Waitress. Small-town girl.
Married to a man she never forgot,
From a summer romance ten years before.
And now, she’s wealthy beyond imagination.
Who is Connor Ford?
Two women loved him. And knew him as only wives can know.
Set amongst the glittering mansions of the Hamptons,
The Wife Who Knew Too Much is a decadent summer thriller about the lives of those who will do anything for love and money. Who is the victim? Who is the villain? And who will be next to die?
Tabitha Girard, the heroine of this fast-moving if farfetched romantic thriller from Campbell (A Stranger on the Beach), gets a second chance at love when fate brings gorgeous Connor Ford back to their New Hampshire hometown after a summer fling 13 years earlier when they were teens. Their lives have since taken opposite trajectories: Tabitha's barely making ends meet waitressing after divorcing her abusive husband, while Connor has married a much older widow, heiress Nina Levitt. And yet, he manages to persuade her they're destined to be together, if only he can somehow wriggle out of his marriage without triggering the draconian prenup. Things quickly turn dicey as Nina smells a murder plot, Connor blows alternately hot and cold, and even a trusting soul like Tabitha starts to suspect that Mr. Wonderful just might be setting her up. Campbell shifts the action among dazzling locations ranging from Nina's oceanfront Southampton estate to Dubai, but without significantly deepening the characters. For those craving sudsy escapism, this page-turner is poolside ready.
