✱✱Book Review✱✱ The Wife Who Knew Too Much by Michele Campbell

The Wife Who Knew Too Much
by Michele Campbell

Meet the first Mrs. Ford
Beautiful. Accomplished.
Wealthy beyond imagination.
Married to a much younger man.
And now, she’s dead.

Meet the second Mrs. Ford.
Waitress. Small-town girl.
Married to a man she never forgot,
From a summer romance ten years before.
And now, she’s wealthy beyond imagination.

Who is Connor Ford?
Two women loved him. And knew him as only wives can know.
Set amongst the glittering mansions of the Hamptons,
The Wife Who Knew Too Much is a decadent summer thriller about the lives of those who will do anything for love and money. Who is the victim? Who is the villain? And who will be next to die?

Momma Says: 2 stars ⭐⭐

The Wife Who Knew Too Much is not my first experience with Michele Campbell. It's also not the first book by her that I've been disappointed with. If I recall correctly, I had a problem with both predictability and believability. Well, the predictability isn't so much a problem here, so there's that. However, believability is just nonexistent. Add to that the irritating and unlikable characters, including a woman who seems to throw her good sense right out the window, and this one lost me. I will add that unlikable characters on their own aren't necessarily a no-go for me, especially in the thriller genre, but combined with everything else, it became a no-go. I did finish, but it reached a point where it was harder to pick up than it was to put down, and once it went so far out there, there was just no coming back.
