The Next Wife by Kaira Rouda

It is not often a book engages you from the first page to the last… The Next Wife kept me glued with anticipation of what would happen next and even I could not guess. ~Sheila

Tish Nelson is young, gorgeous and has the world by the tail. Any man would be thrilled to be seen with her and she knows it. Second wife to the successful John Nelson, owner of a flourishing event ticket company, 4 gorgeous homes, and more money than she could have ever dreamed of. Everything was perfect.


Or almost perfect.


Kate Nelson is the first wife. Also beautiful, and really like an older version of Tish. Kate is also an owner of the flourishing company that she and John had built together from a dream in their first home working out of a garage to what it is today. And of course there is Ashlyn, Kate and John’s College aged daughter who is over dependent, in Tish’s opinion.


What happens next will blow everything up and has Tish, Kate, and Ashlyn all scrambling to pick up the pieces of their world and question everything they ever knew about love and the lengths one will take when wronged.

Holy smokes.
I picked this book up while on vacation and was hooked from the very first page. Each chapter built like riding a roller coaster and going up, up and up until with your heart in your throat – you slip over that much anticipated, much dreaded edge.
I didn’t see it coming.
Two days later after having my nose in this book every chance I had, I closed that final page with one thought. Could Author Kaira Rouda write faster? I am going to need another fix of her deliciously engaging reads.
One of the best books I have read in a while, I highly recommend you pre order The Next Wife, available on May 1st, 2021.
Then… we will chat. Zoom even with a great cup of coffee… or maybe a margarita.

Other books I have read by Kaira Rouda: (more to come… I am digging around Good Reads now…)
