A Reliable Wife
Just need to share my latest good read with you; my stepmom's book club has included me in their e-mail updates so that I may enjoy their monthly recommendations even if I can't attend their wine-and-laughter infused meetings!
This month they read A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrich. The cover had me instantly intrigued and then I was hooked by the first page! This novel is just not historical fiction, it's a steamy bodice-ripper, mystery, thrilled and just overall fantastic read! Just when I thought I had the characters figured out they did something to have me gasping with surprise.
Set in rural Wisconsin in 1907, during the mid-winter, this is the perfect winter afternoon, curl up on the couch with a cup of hot tea read! However, you should warn your lover ahead of time: you may find yourself grabbing him or her upstairs for an afternoon tryst! Yes, it is just that steamy! *swoon*
