Review: The Wife Who Knew Too Much

The Wife Who Knew Too Much


From Michele Campbell, the bestselling author of It’s Always the Husband comes a new blockbuster thriller in The Wife Who Knew Too Much.

Tabitha Girard had her heart broken years ago by Connor Ford. He was preppy and handsome. She was a pool girl at his country club. Their affair should have been a summer fling. But it meant everything to Tabitha.

Years later, Connor comes back into Tabitha’s life—older, richer, and desperately unhappy. He married for money, a wealthy, neurotic, controlling woman whom he never loved. He has always loved Tabitha.

When Connor’s wife Nina takes her own life, he’s free. He can finally be with Tabitha. Nina’s home, Windswept, can be theirs. It seems to be a perfect ending to a fairy tale romance that began so many years ago. But then, Tabitha finds a diary. “I’m writing this to raise an alarm in the event of my untimely death,” it begins. “If I die unexpectedly, it was foul play, and Connor was behind it. Connor—and her.”

Who is Connor Ford? Why did he marry Nina? Is Tabitha his true love, or a convenient affair? As the police investigate Nina’s death, is she a convenient suspect?

As Tabitha is drawn deeper into the dark glamour of a life she is ill-prepared for, it becomes clear to her that what a wife knows can kill her. 

Rating: 4-stars


The Wife Who Knew Too Much by Michelle Campbell was a superb thriller. In the beginning, I was hooked. There was the presence of danger, suspense, and mystery. I knew something would happen but not when nor how. I was given an idea of who did it. But there were so many unseen twists, I was not sure anymore of that person. Three lives were tangled in a bad way. An older woman who fell in love with a younger man. That man stayed with her because of the money and influence. But he was in love with another woman. A woman who was younger than him. It was that younger woman who was also deeply in love with him. The older woman suspects that her demise would happen at the hand of the one she foolishly loved. The younger woman was not sure why the man she loved would love her. She was nothing like his wife. There are so many unknown elements and a dark edge to this book. Each character feels something and knows something. However, none of them knew exactly what would occur nor why. Overall, this is a compelling story from a mastermind.
