Review: The Starter Wife - Nina Laurin

The Starter Wife

Review: The Starter Wife - Nina Laurin - June 2019
Having read Nina Laurin's previous books, when I saw The Starter Wife pop up for reading/review on NetGalley. It was one I was requesting as I have loved her previous books with their twists and turns. The Starter Wife which seems to be a theme lately for psychological thrillers from Verity by Colleen Hoover to The Wives by Tarryn Fisher and The Third Mrs. Durst by Ann Agguire. In The Starter Wife by Nina Laurin, we have a scene in a diner which feels like an obsessive stalker romance, and then the novel jumps to our main characters who are happily married or so it seems. The female character Claire is about twenty years younger; than her husband. Her husband is a professor at the local college, while she is a stay at home wife trying to write the next best thing. During the book, our main character, Claire, gets a strange phone call asking her where it is? This is just after she tries to sell a painting created by Colleen Westcott, her husband's first wife. After a bit of research, Claire discovers that her husband was suspected of killing his first wife. In the middle of the book, strange things are happening to Claire, and she is starting to convince herself that it's a matter of time before she is gotten rid of too like yesterday's trash. Can Claire find evidence that her husband killed his first wife before she is next? In the third part of the book, Claire's past comes to light and OMG this is where it got exciting and all the major twists and turns and then I did not see that coming parts started to happen.
