Review: Nobody's Wife by Laura Pearson

Nobody's Wife
by Laura Pearson

Publisher: Agora Books
Pages: 267
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  ‘Of the four of them, only three remained. And there was no going backwards from there.’ 

Emily and Josephine have always shared everything. They’re sisters, flatmates, and best friends. It’s the two of them against the world.

When Emily has the perfect wedding, and Josephine finds the perfect man, they know things will change forever. But nothing can prepare them for what, or who, one of them is willing to give up for love.

Four people. Three couples. Two sisters. One unforgivable betrayal.

Kritters Thoughts:   Two couples, a set of sisters and betrayal.  Emily and Josephine share a mother and more than that their mother has abandoned them so they are all each other has left when it comes to family.  Emily gets married and they know that will change their relationship, but actually it is Josephine's new love that will really rock their world.

The reader knows from the beginning that there will be a betrayal and that it will really affect this small group.  But there is one reveal at the end that I will not spoil that really sent this book down a road I wasn't prepared for.  I am still not sure how I feel about it and I finished the book a few days before writing this review - have you read this book?  Without spoiling what are your thoughts on this ending?

I accepted this review before I really started avoiding books that had cheating and spouses, so I wanted to keep to my commitment, but also trying to decide if this really is a sub genre that I am going to avoid - answer is yes.  I just don't love reading books with this at the heart of it and I am going to avoid these in the future.

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from Agora Books.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
