This breezy yet sharp read kept me on my toes until the final reveal. The story begins shortly before the ill fated book club event, and we get to know the inner lives of each woman and how they came together. I found myself really relating to Penny and Anne more so than I did than Eliza, and I looked foreward to their chapters. I never felt like enough time was devoted to Eliza as much as the other women, and thus I couldn’t connect to her. The dialogue was real and you felt like you were eavesdropping on a group of girlfriends at brunch, and the secrets and situations the characters got into weren’t far fetched like in other domestic thrillers. In between each chapter are court transcripts from Roman’s murder trial, which helped add more depth to the secrets the women were hiding. The final reveal as to Roman’s killer came as a complete surprise to me. ⁣
I quite enjoyed the character development and overall mystery of this book, and plan to seek out Gina LaManna’s other works. ( )

Friends, Book Club and Alcohol, throw in a sleaze bag of a husband, whatever could go wrong! What would you do for a friend? Fun read with a familiar plot but lots of secrets and twists. Characters have many layers, and are developed well throughout the book. The situations are real enough to empathize. Writing was fast paced enough to keep the pages turning. Even though I guessed the killer, it was fun to see it all come together. Another enjoyable read by this author!

Thanks to Ms. LaManna, Sourcebooks Landmark and NetGalley for this ARC. Opinion is mine alone. ( )

It took a little bit to get into this murder mystery but I didn't figure out who done it, till towards the end. I received this this book for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. There are a lot of characters in this story and it takes a little while to get them all sorted out. There are a lot of false leads to lead everyone astray. However, it all starts to fall into place toward the end. It has an exciting ending. This is not for the under 18 readers and I've given it a 4.5* rating. ( )

How could a discussion at a book club turn out to be deadly?

It can when the book club members discuss how they would kill their husband if he were having an affair, and then someone's husband turns up dead.

Despite the dead husband and the trial transcript that was at the beginning of each chapter, the characters were comical. The things they said on the witness stand were unbelievable.

We find out about each woman from eight months before and then leading up to the fateful book club night and trial. We also are kept in the dark about who the murderer is. We get bounced around from one person to the next.

All of the women were flawed in one way or another, but for the most part they were likable.

Penny was a bit on the unlikeable side, though.

Roman, one of the main male characters, was very unlikeable.

I enjoyed Ms. LaManna’s writing style which brought a nice flow to the book, the structure of the chapters, and of course the storyline.

THREE SINGLE WIVES KEPT my interest because of the characters' antics, the book talk, and the terrific characters.

If you need a change of pace for a murder mystery, you will want to add this book to your reading list.

And….Ohhhh….what a great ending. 5/5

This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. ( )

A night out at a girlfriends house for bookclub – bookclub with an actual author, some wine, and talk of how you’d murder your husband if it came down to it… what is so bad about this? It’s bookclub after all, lots of fictional things are talked about. Well, when one of the husbands does end up dead and evidence is continuing to point in the direction of anyone of you, who is the real killer and why?

The story is told through the different women’s view points, and the court room transcripts of each one of them being interrogated on the stand of what happened that night, how the talk of murdering husbands came up and why they are not the killer. All three women at some point have come into the life of the murdered and the unraveling of how and why is a fast paced read.

As each woman’s story is told, each one does seem to have a reason to want to murder this man. It is the unraveling of who could actually go that far to follow through with it, and how they managed to do this when evidence is can be linked back to each one. This story keeps you hanging on until the very end.

Thank you to Source Books for the early read, I really enjoyed this thriller and will be looking for more books by Gina Lamanna. It was a very fast paced read, and I really enjoyed that the author dangled the court transcripts in between each chapter. It made the story more interesting, and when you’d think one had the motive and guts to follow through, the court then makes you re-evaluate your thought on who did it. ( )
