Blake’s dead. His wife killed him.
The question is: which one?
The only thing the three women had in common was their husband.
And, as of this morning, that they’re each accused of his murder.
Blake Nelson moved into a hidden stretch of land – a raw paradise in the wilds of Utah – where he lived with his three wives:
Rachel, the chief wife, obedient and doting to a fault.
Tina, the other wife, who is everything Rachel isn’t.
And Emily, the youngest wife, who knows little else.
When their husband is found dead under the desert sun, the questions pile up.
But none of the widows know who would want to kill a good man like Blake.
Or, at least, that’s what they’ll tell the police…
I was drawn by the description of this book and immediately requested it from NetGalley to read an advanced reader copy. I was so happy to be approved.
The beginning was so fast paced and catchy and I wanted more. I was curious about what actually happened and what each of the three sister wives had to hide.
As I got more into it, the disturbing events started to unravel and I got a bit thrown back. I have to say that I found it hard to continue as it involves lots of child abuse, miscarriage, marital punishment and mental abuse. However, this is such an original story so I braved myself and moved on past my feelings.
Black Widows is such a twisty story that will play with your loyalties. It is full of tension all the way to the end and brilliantly written. The sister wives relationship is one to follow and learn from.
Cate Quinn managed to create one unique domestic thriller that I know lots will absolutely love.
