The Wife - Part Two: For Better, For Worse (The Wife series) by [Roberts, ML]

Genre: general fiction (adult)

Well, part one had me gripped, and part two keeps up the “what is really going on” drama. Is Ellie paranoid, is Michael having an affair or is it all in her head.? I’m not sure I like either of them, she certainly needs help and he comes over as cold, and I just wonder why won’t he talk to her? What happened to two people so in love? She steps up her actions to find evidence. I’m thinking one moment yes, he’s acting as if he’s hiding something and then I’m thinking, what the heck is this woman doing, does she really think that will help?
Now we know what happened I do feel sorry for both, but we still only know barest details. Was it really just an obsessive student out of the blue or had Micheal given her reason to think he felt more for her. Then there’s Michael and Ellie’s best friend Liam. What does he know? What’s his motivation.

There’s really not much more revealed, a story line comes in that was pretty clear from book one it was going to be there but other than that its more of the same. And yet its curiously addictive. Lucky I have book three on my kindle….

What I hate though is that this is a four part book that could easily have been a stand alone, and for me waiting breaks the tension, the story loses impact. I had to go back and take a look at part one to recall what had happened. Each part is only around 100 pages, modeled I guess on TV specials which is fine for many readers, but one of the reason I don’t watch TV. I want ALL the story, not just teases.

Stars: Four, curiously addicting even though not much actually happens.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
