The Missing Widow is a psychological thriller set in America.
Meghan is devastated by her husband’s illness but cannot fulfil his last wish to end his suffering, Yet she still finds herself accused of murder and runs away to go into hiding with their son Ashton. She settles into her new life but never manages to fully relax. A year later her situation is as tense as ever and she wants to prove her innocence while also finding the truth.
I was absolutely gripped by this book. Meghan is put into a terrible situation and her in laws were the most dreadful people. I was so cross with her husband for not standing up to his parents but his cancer battle is heartbreaking. The dilemma she faces on whether to help him die is a huge emotional load and very thought provoking.
Meghan needs to battle to find the truth whilst also staying safely incognito. The plot is delivered at a swift pace and I devoured the pages in a single afternoon. The tension is maintained right to the end.
The Missing Widow is an emotional and gripping psychological thriller.
