When I read Karen Hamilton’s last book – The Perfect Girlfriend, I was blown away by how utterly deceptive the main character was. From the moment I read the book I knew she was deceptive, it was a fact the author didn’t shy away from. Every chapter, every scene led me down a darker path and it was thrilling!

Which meant I couldn’t wait to read The Last Wife!

I was prepared to discover a character I couldn’t trust…in fact, I was ready for it, it was all I could think about when I wasn’t reading this book. What I didn’t expect was that not only could I not trust the main character, but every single character in this book was untrustworthy! Who was I to trust? What was the real story? I had no idea, which made me turn page after page after page.

Every character is deceptively flawed with a past that’s so dark and twisted, you’re not sure what to believe.

While the story wasn’t quite what I was expecting (especially after reading The Perfect Girlfriend), it was quite an enjoyable read that left me questioning everyone and everything I’d read.

If I had to give it a rating – it would be 4 out of 5 for me. If you were to ask which story to read first…you won’t go wrong reading either one!
