Book Review - The Secret Wife by Emily Shiner

Digital Reads Reviews is a blog-haven for book posts and tech tips. This is a review of a missing child thriller.
The secret wife

Blurb

What happens when the perfect family trip becomes the perfect nightmare?

Cara is a devoted mother to two little girls.

She loves her hectic life, but she looks forward to a relaxing weekend alone while her husband, Michael, takes the kids on a camping trip.

But their dream trip turns into a nightmare when their daughters are taken, deep in the forest.

One is returned safe. But one is still missing.

As Cara and Michael frantically search for their little girl it becomes clear that this is no random abduction – her disappearance is linked to shocking secrets which are only now being revealed.

And Cara begins to wonder how well she really knows her husband.

Is the stress making her paranoid?

Or is she finally seeing him as he really is?

Time is running out.

How far will Cara go to find her daughter?

My Review

What was it all about

A missing child trope was my favorite, and this book ticked all the right boxes. A camping trip, father and two girls, girls left alone, both gone. Then one came back, secrets slowly unfurled. 

How it made me feel

Obsessed and addicted. I couldn’t seem to stop reading it even with my work and chores pending. 

The writing was vivid, and projected the correct imagery and emotions that were needed to capture my mind.

The Good

Fast-paced and short chapters with a twist every few chapters, the author Emily Shine knew how to write a thriller. 

I had to explore her author page to know she had written many other thrillers. So if all had been written in the same vein, then her books would provide me hours of bliss with thrills rocking my heart. 

The Bad

The story was predictable. It was actually sad that the title revealed it all. When I read the backstory of the characters, I knew the entire plot line. The publishers and author ought to be careful about that. 

The Conclusion

The author’s writing was still worth the time I spent on it, which was less than 3 hours. I need to read a couple more to know if she would be my auto-download author. Looking forward to that. 

I loved it
