Great Thriller - Kept Me Guessing

I loved The Young Widows by S.J. Short. I can honestly say that I enjoyed reading The Young Widows. It was the first book that I have read by S. J. Short. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Who does not love a psychological suspense thriller with a surprise ending? I love how she developed the story line and the characters. It was an incredible psychological suspense thriller and has me guessing as how all the women in the story were interconnected. It was impossible to put it down and I loved every moment on every page of this wonderful page turner. I love that the story is told from the perspective of the main characters. I loved getting inside the thoughts and feelings of the characters. I love all the plot twists and turns in The Young Widows. I never saw how the women’s lives were connected until it was revealed in the story. It truly took me by surprise. The Young Widows is the story of young widows: Isabel Park, Adriana Whitlock, and Kylie Robins. They formed their club to support one another to get through their grief, they are each in their twenties. Isabel started bringing another young widow, Hannah Adamson, to their meetings. Adriana has been keeping secrets about her relationship with Grant Frenchman and their recent engagement. I kept trying to figure out how these women were connected to one another. I love how the story details what really transpired in each one of their lives in the past, how that brought them together as young widows, the secrets that were revealed and who was behind their connection. My favorite part was the surprise ending, I did not see it coming. Another favorite part was the significance of the name that Adriana chose for her baby. It was an incredible thriller. Looking for a great thriller, then I highly recommend The Young Widows. I received an advanced copy from the author.
