Book: The Ex Wives
Author: Jenna Kernan
Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture Audio for an advanced audio copy.
The Ex Wives was a truly captivating book. Elana lost her first husband and it was just her and her daughter Phoebe. They didn’t have much but they got by. Then Elana meets who she felt was the perfect man, Jackson. Only Jackson is not as perfect as he first seems.
Jackson was married twice before Elana, and both of his ex-wives had daughters that went missing. Discovering that she and her daughter are in danger Elana plans how to expose Jackson and escape. Jackson always seems to be a step ahead of her. It also doesn’t help that he controls everything, from her car and electronics all the way to the small town they live in.
This was a fun game of cat and mouse and watching Elana try to outwit Jackson was enthralling. When she was snooping around I found myself leaning forward in my chair getting nervous for Elana.
I honestly could not look away from this book. It had some twists and turns I did not expect and I liked where it ended up. I highly recommend this one.
Final Score: 5/5
