Book Synopsis



Darby Kane thrills with this twisty domestic suspense novel that asks one central question: shouldn't a dead husband stay dead?

Lila Ridgefield lives in an idyllic college town, but not everything is what it seems. Lila isn't what she seems.

A student vanished months ago. Now, Lila's husband, Aaron, is also missing. At first these cases are treated as horrible coincidences until it's discovered the student is really the third of three unexplained disappearances over the last few years. The police are desperate to find the connection, if there even is one. Little do they know they might be stumbling over only part of the truth....

With the small town in an uproar, everyone is worried about the whereabouts of their beloved high school teacher. Everyone except Lila, his wife. She's definitely confused about her missing husband but only because she was the last person to see his body, and now it's gone.



Review Quotes



"Even after we've read the last page, Kane leaves us with some lingering questions about how much Lila knew and when she knew it. Good writing and a plot that drives the action and builds the suspense make Pretty Little Wife an excellent choice for fans of murder mysteries."--Book Reporter

"Good writing and a plot that drives the action and builds the suspense make Pretty Little Wife an excellent choice for fans of murder mysteries."--Book Reporter

"This twisted thriller's got serious 'Gone Girl' vibes. As in, the main character is deeply flawed, you won't always know what's real, and you won't be able to put it down." --The Skimm

I love it when I find a thriller so fun I can't put it down, like this one from Darby Kane.--Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author

"...in this stylish and provocative first novel by Darby Kane, set in Upper New York state the complications, adds in well-drawn new characters, and develops subtle twists that nudge the plot in unexpected directions, inviting both characters and readers to make adjustments in their suspicions about motives and intentions. Ambitious for a first novel, "Pretty Little Wife" delivers on its promise."--Toronto Star

"This is a crazy ride of a book that will leave readers speechless as they wonder if Lila will get away with it and just where Aaron went. Bravo to Kane!"--The Parkerburg News and Sentinel

"Pretty Little Wife explores the consequences of unacknowledged trauma and dares to ask whether murder is ever justified. It's an exciting departure for HelenKay Dimon, the bestselling romance author for whom Darby Kane is a pseudonym. There's certainly no guarantee of a happily ever after, though there is hope for hard-won redemption."--BookPage

"Pretty Little Wife by Darby Kane delights in subverting the expectations of readers"--Popsugar
