I’ve been sick for the past week and have literally finished like 5 books, which has been SO nice. I got caught up on ARCs and just have two to read this month, which really isn’t bad at all. I can finally enjoy some of my backlist at home!

𝙎𝙮𝙣𝙤𝙥𝙨𝙞𝙨 (𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙂𝙤𝙤𝙙𝙍𝙚𝙖𝙙𝙨): Tabitha Girard had her heart broken years ago by Connor Ford. He was preppy and handsome. She was a pool girl at his country club. Their affair should have been a summer fling. But it meant everything to Tabitha.
Years later, Connor comes back into Tabitha’s life—older, richer, and desperately unhappy. He married for money, a wealthy, neurotic, controlling woman whom he never loved. He has always loved Tabitha.
When Connor’s wife Nina takes her own life, he’s free. He can finally be with Tabitha. Nina’s home, Windswept, can be theirs. It seems to be a perfect ending to a fairy tale romance that began so many years ago. But then, Tabitha finds a diary. “I’m writing this to raise an alarm in the event of my untimely death,” it begins. “If I die unexpectedly, it was foul play, and Connor was behind it. Connor—and her.”
Who is Connor Ford? Why did he marry Nina? Is Tabitha his true love, or a convenient affair? As the police investigate Nina’s death, is she a convenient suspect?
As Tabitha is drawn deeper into the dark glamour of a life she is ill-prepared for, it becomes clear to her that what a wife knows can kill her.

𝙍𝙚𝙫𝙞𝙚𝙬: This book started out slow, but it got REALLY good really quickly.
I’m not going to say that I didn’t predict the ending, but there were enough twists and turns that it stayed interesting and still managed to surprise me. I appreciated the in-depth character descriptions and felt l like I got a really good handle on who each character was. There were a lot of characters, so this can be a feat, but Campbell did it very well.
I thought some of the background information about Nina and her story was a little wordy, but I understand why some of it was necessary. Cheating is typically a trope I can’t stand, but this book handled it differently and didn’t glorify any of it. In fact, I loved how much Tabitha struggled with the fact that Connor cheated on his wife with her.
This book was honestly great and I absolutely read it in one day. Very good thriller that I’ll recommend to any thriller lover!
