Books Worth Another Look
Guest Review by Hilda Partridge
The Widow, by Fiona Barton
Jane Taylor is the perfect wife standing by her man, Glen, who is suspected of a crime (a missing child, Bella). Suddenly she becomes a widow when Glen walks in front of an oncoming bus. Once he is dead there is no reason to keep quiet. She has secrets that now can be shared. This a real page turner, one I had to read in one sitting. I really enjoyed this first novel by Fiona Barton, and am looking forward to reading her next one, The Child.
