Fans of Liane Moriarty and Jojo Moyes will be captivated by this riveting family drama with a dark mystery at its core, from the New York Times bestselling author of The House We Grew Up In .

In the early hours of a summer morning, a young woman steps into the path of an oncoming bus. A tragic accident? Or suicide?

At the center of this puzzle is Adrian Wolfe, a successful architect and grief-stricken widower, who, a year after his third wife's death, begins to investigate the cause. As Adrian looks back on their brief but seemingly happy marriage, disturbing secrets begin to surface. The divorces from his two previous wives had been amicable, or so it seemed; his children, all five of them, were resilient as ever, or so he thought. But something, or someone, must have pushed Maya over the edge.

"Jewell's last few novels have been a revelation--emotionally sophisticated and complex," says Kirkus Reviews . "Like Liane Moriarty, she manages the perfect blend of women's fiction and nail-biting suspense," hails Booklist. The Third Wife is "an emotionally intelligent, brilliantly plotted, and beautifully written examination of a very modern family that will keep you gripped to the end" ( London Daily Mail ).

I loved this book!
Totally refreshing! Very reminiscent of Liane Moriarty, one of my favourite authors.

If you like Liane Moriarty's Bit Little Lies or The Husband's Secret, try this story of an oft-married man who prides himself on how well his blended family blends, until his third wife dies by an accident that may not have been an accident.

Imagine if Elin Hilderbrand tried to inject a thriller into her stories? You might end up with THE THIRD WIFE. Enjoyable, though not very mysterious, look at family dynamics and the sudden death of a member of the complex but cozy family, Maya, the third wife.
