Such a Good Wife by Seraphina Nova Glass #bookreview #thriller @harlequinbooks @harpercollins @seraphinanova

Book Summary:

From the author of Someone’s Listening comes another thriller that will leave you breathless, about a housewife implicated in a murder investigation, perfect for fans of The Last House Guest and Someone We Know.

Melanie Hale has the perfect life. Her husband, Collin, is a loving and supportive partner and she loves their small-town home just outside of New Orleans. She doesn’t mind (too much) that she’s given up her career dreams to care for her two beautiful children. It’s all worth it.

So why, when she joins a writers’ group for fledgling novelists, does she embark on a steamy affair with Luke, a local bestselling author who gives a talk during the group? Why does she go back to Luke again and again, when she knows it’s wrong?

And then Luke is found dead, and Mel knows she was the last person to see him alive. Now, she not only has to keep the affair a secret, but somehow avoid being implicated in Luke’s death. But who would want to kill him? And if Mel finds the truth, will she be next? What follows is a sinister cat-and-mouse game that will leave readers guessing until the very last page.


Melanie is a stay at home mom. She takes care of her family and her ailing mother-in-law. She has a wonderful husband and a pretty good life. But, when she meets a handsome romance writer, it sends her on a crash course.

When Mel meets Luke the reader just knows what is about to happen next. Yes! They hit it off and it leads to an affair. Then Melanie finds his dead body…she can’t tell anyone. It will blow up her perfect life…or will it?!?!

I enjoyed the intricacies to this novel. It does keep you guessing. The story did slow down a bit in the middle. But that is just a minor situation. Because, believe me…you want to know who did what to whom!

Need a good cover-up thriller…this is it! Grab your copy today!

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
