Dark tale of betrayal and secrets. It's Gothic suspense at it's best. This family drama has a twisty plot and intriguing characters that keep the pages turning until the final twist. It's rich in historical detail of high society in New York in 1899. This was my first book by Lauren Willig but I definitely will be reading more of her books in the future. I would highly recommend this book to those who love suspenseful historical novels.

SW-T I like her Pink Carnation series. She also has a collaboration out 10mo

This #botm pick was just great: it has mystery, some surprising twists, nice back and forth between the “present” (late 1890s) and past, and some strong points of view. The English Wife might be great for readers who enjoy #katemorton.

Laalaleighh Her Pink Carnation series is so much better. 1y
UnabridgedPod @Laalaleighh Really!?! I‘ll have to add it to my list—I thought this was pretty good. 😀 1y

Laalaleighh Yes! Its such a comfort read for me! The writing is just as good but the stories are much much better! 1y
Laalaleighh Not that this was bad! I just think if you liked this you‘ll love her series! I probably could have worded it differently haha. 1y
UnabridgedPod @Laalaleighh Gotcha. Just added the first book in Pink Carnation to my list! 1y

LOVED this book! It combined so many of my favorite things and kept me guessing. I was initially unsure about 2 of the 3 POVs being in the same time (rather than 3 separate time periods), but I ended up loving that too. Everyone should look forward to its release in October!

I finally got to the top of the holds for the new #laurenwillig, and my library's ebook system goes down! I have one more day to check it out before the system removes it! I'm so mad!

LaurenReads Ahhh!!! 2y
books_cats_art @LaurenReads it's so stressful for me! 2y

This was a slow starter for me, but really good in the end! I didn‘t see that coming! Lauren Willig is a great writer and this departure from her previous works is successfully carried out. Well drawn characters, mysterious histories, and a slow and steady reveal make for a gripping who ‘dun it. #stmartinspress #laurenwillig #historicalmystery #theenglishwife #recommended

#amreading #fridaynightplans #ARC #ARCcatchup I‘m a huge fan of Lauren Willig‘s. I was thrilled to win an advanced copy of her new book via Goodreads! A warning to her devoted fans: it‘s very different from her previous works. It took a little while for me to get into it, but I‘m officially #hooked #stmartinspress #laurenwillig

SilversReviews Good book. It was a bit slow at first, but turned out marvelously. (edited) 2y

I will be returning to the Throne of Glass series soon but I forgot how much I like this series and decided to read the next. (and yes I'm having fun playing with all the filters!) #pinkcarnation #laurenwillig #historicalfiction #currentlyreading
