The perfect house or the perfect lie? The moment my husband showed me Cliffside—a sleek and modern glass home perched on the edge of the jagged Big Sur clifftops—I fell in love. And right there and then I made a pact with myself. I am never leaving this house.
But when my husband was killed on the perilous roads leading up to the house, weeks after we moved in, I had a decision to make—leave the home I love and start a new life or stay and shut myself off from the world? I am never leaving this house.
As I pieced together my shattered life, my mind began to play tricks on me. Footsteps along the beach, leading to my home, then blood-red flowers left on my doorstep with a note that read Looking at you. So I retreated back to the safety of my glass refuge once again. I am never leaving this house.
But now, as I stare out of the towering windows of my perfect home, I know there is someone out there staring back. I know that they are watching my every move, waiting to make me pay for my past mistakes.

Yes! The Wife's House is the heart-pounding, double-crossing summer noir thriller I have been waiting for. An awesome, twisty book with a great narrator and a ton of thrills. This author is going on my list of "must reads" and I hope she hurries up and writes another thriller soon!" Netgalley reviewer 5 stars
"In the tradition of du Maurier’s Rebecca, the widow at the heart of The Wife’s House remains unnamed. The twists were unexpected and I kept suspecting the wrong people all the time.
